First, let me apologise for going AWOL for a whole week! I’d love to say that I’ve been jetsetting around the world on a fabulous holiday, but really it’s just been a manic week, with interstate visitors and the long-mad-leadup to a retail Christmas.
Plus, Melbourne’s decided that she hasn’t had enough of winter yet, thankyou-very-much, and after a unseasonably hot and sticky couple of days the mercury has once again plummeted into the teens. Good news for my new red boots (hurrah!) bad news for the rest of the wardrobe.
I’m feeling sadly uninspired by my cool-weather clothing – especially with all my new floaty dresses and floral skirts batting their eyelashes at me from the closet. I’ve grudgingly reclaimed a few cardigans and sweaters from storage, but for the most part I’m shivering it out in trans-seasonal shirts and dresses like this one.
This mock-wrap dress is a gorgeous plummy colour that disappointed me dreadfully when I received it in a package from Ezibuy (www.ezibuy.com.au). On the website it looks like my favourite blood-red hue but in real life it’s closer to raspberry. I’m glad I held on to it though – it’s a very warm colour, and probably more wearable than scarlet – it’s also a dress that I reach for when I’m low on time because it needs nothing to complete the look; it doesn’t need to be ironed, and it goes with nearly every pair of shoes in my cupboard (except my red boots!).
