It started off as a sunny day in Melbourne and quickly turned wet and windy. Oh well..
I am wearing:
– Sunset dress from a random boutique store.
– Black boots (thrifted)
– Orange striped headscarf (thrifted)
– Turquoise ring
– Amethyst ring
– Indian Bollywood ring
– Topaz cuff
– Copper sun cuff.
I bought this dress about two months ago, and I hadn’t worn it yet. I was saving it for the warmer weather, but today I just couldn’t resist taking it for a spin. It was originally a strapless dress, but I don’t really like strapless garments. I find them too uncomfortable, and I feel as though I am always having to hitch them up. I made this dress into a halter-neck.
I added this teal cardigan from Cotton On to keep warm.
I really, really like this dress. It is really swishy and has great movement. It is lined with satin so it feels lovely to wear. I am looking forward to summer so that I can wear it more often. I am thinking it should be paied with gladiator sandals, massive platforms, armloads of bangles and fabulous headscarves. It shows off my shoulders too, which I like. I would much rather a dress that draws attention to my shoulders than my bust or legs. Shoulders are subtly sexy.
