ln a similar vein to my previous Christmas Outfit Post, my red velvet dress with biker boots is a another beach-to-bar outfit. In this case, “the bar” was Riley’s Fish Shack, one of our favourite places to eat on the North East coast. (We went on December 30th). I will start by saying that by no means is there a dress code at Riley’s- it’s a very laid back, relaxed and cool place to eat. I dress up because I enjoy doing so. However, I was sensible with my choice of footwear (and “undergarments”)- black leather biker boots, thermal opaque tights and a black slip.
Red Velvet Dress and Biker Boots
I’ve worn my red velvet dress over and over since getting it last year. It is pretty and easy to wear. It is Luna by independent label, Kitri Studio. There is one left at the time of writing.
The following dresses are similar.
The statement necklace is from Boden. I love all of the different colours in it. It compliments so many outfits, not just this red velvet dress. It would look as fabulous with jeans and a simple sweater as it would with a cocktail dress. I bought it a few weeks ago and unsurprisingly, it has sold out. My bag is the one Ian gave to me for Christmas – I absolutely love it. My red eyewear is by STEPPER- see this post for more details, and the biker boots were from Lotus last winter.
Riley’s Fish Shack
Riley’s Fish Shack is located at King Edward’s Bay, which is a stone’s throw from Tynemouth Priory. It is small and intimate with an open kitchen. There is always a very relaxed, laid back mood there. The food is outstanding- freshly caught fish and seafood and a decent drinks menu. If you are close by, it is a must-visit place.
