Today I’m wearing one of my favourite dresses. I bought this at least six years ago and I’ve gotten so much wear out of it. The thing that I love most about this dress is that it can be worn in so many different ways. I usually go for a 60’s mod look, pairing it with opaque tights and sooty eye makeup. But today I’m trying something a bit different, adding some modern pop accessories to give the dress a slightly cartoonish edge.
I am wearing:
– Black and red print dress from Temt
– Black zipper leggings from Rubi
– Red jelly sandals from Rubi shoes
– Gold claw ring from ASOS
– Silver ring (thrifted)
– Green beaded necklace from Chapel Street Bazaar.
I just love the swirling print on this dress. The colours are perfect for mixing and matching with other shades in my wardrobe, and I find that it goes with practically anything. For just $30, I’d say it’s one of the best wardrobe purchases I’ve ever made.
I don’t think that I’ve featured these shoes on my blog before. I bought them as a new-years treat to myself and I’m so pleased with them. I’d been thinking about getting a pair of jelly sandals for a while. They make me feel all nostalgic for my youth. I was worried that they’d be really uncomfortable so I didn’t want to spend a lot on them. When I saw these for just $1 on sale, I decided to snap them up. I’m glad I did, because they’re actually pretty comfy. Not the most comfortable shoes I own but certainly fine for popping on for a trip to the shops.
So today’s outfit is quite a mix of old and new, modern and retro styles. I like it. I feel that it’s a good reflection of my personal style.
