I’m always at a bit of a loss when people ask me which shops I get most of my clothing at. I guess I’m not really one of those people who buys according to store name or brand, but just impulse buys when I stumble across something that I like. (Which is a lot)
Shopping by brand has its benefits though it must be said, and this unlikely combination is one of them.
The dress is the one I always reach for when I’m having a mind-blank day on the fashion front because it’s so easy to wear and it always looks amazing, but of course it’s winter in Melbourne at the moment and bloody cold to boot so it was going to have to be coupled with another layer for protection from the elements.
I was inspired to add the Eliza Parker Ballerina top after seeing – and desperately lusting after – the “Cyd” dress from Leona Edmiston:
My own mocked-up combination of dress and top worked remarkably well actually, and the double layers of fabric meant I was reasonably toasty, even without a jacket over the top.
