A Soft Spot

Dress: Eliza Parker

Belt: Torrid

Shoes: Melissa

I love this dress, but it’s always evening when I wear it, so I never manage to get a nice picture to post up on Frocks and Frou Frou. I really wanted to share it with you guys, so I changed into it this afternoon ย and took some snaps.

It’s exactly the same shape and style as the Monaco Dress, but instead of the graphic play of black and white, this Andorra Dressย is a very on-trend navy.

All the better to flaunt with bright red accessories, like my new Melissa shoes! I found them on my Great Red Shoe Hunt, and decided they were going to be perfect for the warmer summer months. I’m a bit obsessed with the bubblegum scent, but it remains to be seen how comfortable the are in the summer when I’ll no doubt be slipping & sliding on sweaty soles (like all Melissa shoes, they’re plastic)

Back to the dress though – one of the reasons I have such a soft spot for this dress? I was wearing it when I went from being The Sophisticate’s girlfriend to being his fiance.

  1. I have been eyeing off those very same cute Melissa shoes for months! I own two pairs of Melissa’s and find that they stand up pretty well in the warmer months (not too much sliding or sweaty-ness and they still smell deliciously of bubblegum after months). I’d love to see more pictures of your red ones! I’ve been wondering how they’d look on a person (rather than product shots). As always, love your outfits!

    • Just a trim ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m growing it out so I can wear my hair up for the wedding. I’ve been looking back at the neat bob in the archives though and wishing…. LOL! Grass is always greener, I suppose!

  2. Fantastic dress! I have my brother’s wedding to go to in October in Brisbane – this might be the perfect dress to wear if I can’t make myself something in the next week.

  3. Aww that’s really sweet! You should try and tie it in that you also wear it when you become his wife – maybe as your “going away” dress? (dreadfully old fashioned I know!). I really love it, I love the red accessories.

    I totally can’t remember what I was wearing when my husband proposed to me… probably jeans!

  4. This is one of my fave outfits in ages! I think I might have to bite the bullet and buy the Andorra although I think my love for it is heavily influenced by the way you’ve styled it!

    I really need a red belt, perhaps I will look on ASOS or City Chic

    You look amazing as usual ๐Ÿ™‚ x
