It’s now time for some feminine wear. Enter my sweet $16 number from Shanton. What can I say, sales love me… or rather, I love sales. ;-) Anyway, this is the second awesome sale dress that I have acquired from Shanton. You can find the first here.
I’ve used simple colours in this outfit. The shoes are rather a feature, so in order for them to tie in a little better, I wrapped a silver belt around my waist. Because of the simplicity of this outfit, I opted for a nice statement necklace – also silver. A purple beret topped it all off (quite literally) and completed the matchy matchy-ness of this outfit. Look, I’m not into matchy matchy a heck-of-a-lot, however there is a time and a place. Make it subtle and make it work. The simple elegance of a dark and light colour (e.g. black and white, brown and cream, or purple and silver) aid you in your clothing matchmaking experience. This would also have been the perfect outfit to add in some arm candy, or an elegant hair-style. You know, I’ve never been much of a hat person, but berets kinda work for me… maybe, still figuring that one out.
I’ve started working at a florist recently and just today checked out three thick books on the art of floristy, how-tos and step by step instructions. The pictures and ideas are gorgeous! I ordered these books, not so much to aid me in my job, but actually because I’ve decided to write an essay (for school) on the history, benefits and types of flowers and floral art. Interesting stuff… Anyway, I will bore you no longer but instead bid you adieu. Please now, turn your gaze upon the following photographs:
Forgot to mention the cardigan. This nice light grey cardie is perfect because it’s length is close to the length of the dress. The look works well… I’m still waiting to (one day) buy a dress coat – those ones that flare out and are the same length as a cocktail dress. Elegant!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
