Daily outfit 18/3/2014

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.


  1. Oh Jellies! I remember how they made my feet smell rubbery. I liked the colorful ones over the clear cause after a while the clear turns to pee yellow 😦 Awesome find!

    • I did consider getting a clear pink pair, until I remembered how they turn yellow after a few wears. I’m glad I went with the red ones!

  2. That is a rad dress! I have one I bought about 10 years ago (there’s a photo of my 18 year old self in it) that I still wear and love. I think it’s also from Tempt! I went in there recently and it’s totally not my style any more though 😦

    • Thanks! I used to shop at Temt All. The. Time. I had so many items from there. But in the last few years I just haven’t felt inspired by their range.
      I actually wore this dress to my 21st birthday dinner!
