Buttons and Bows

Long Sleeve top: Giordano
Short Sleeve top: Dorothy Perkins
Skirt: City Chic
Socks: Aussie Sox
Necklace: City Chic
Shoes: Zensu
It’s insanely cold at the moment in Melbourne, so you could be forgiven for thinking that I’m mad for venturing out with bare knees, but there’s just something about this necklace that smacks of short skirts and knee socks. 
Actually I’m wearing pantihose under the socks, which does double duty of providing a bit of extra coverage, and helping the socks themselves stay up.
The necklace is another impulse buy from City Chic, along with the bow belt from a few posts back, and the polkdaot jacket which I’m yet to blog.
Wandering past today (on the hunt for non-trashy looking Maneke Nekos) I spotted another very cute looking piece in their window:
I have to say – this has been one of my favourite seasons from City Chic in a long while!

  1. Love the knee sock look! I don't want to wish away the beautiful weather we're experiencing in UK at the mo but I am also really looking forward to autumn and winter to wear my socks!!

    Love the skirt too…!

  2. There is something about the combination of the bow necklace and that grey top that is just so romantic and great. Oh, and OH GOD that heart cardigan is just to die for!

  3. I love the skirt, so cute. I actually tried on that cardigan in the store last week but it looked really boxy on me, damn it.

  4. You should check out fashionhayley.com; she styled the most recent City Chic shoot which was staged – wait for it – at my parents' house, a big old place in Seaford!

  5. I have an almost identical bow necklace that I bought from Dotti! I just couldn't resist it.

    Stockings and socks are the perfect way to combat the Melbourne Winter.

  6. I tried on the heart cardi too, unfortuately they didn't have my size. If it had been $20 on sale I'd've bought it small and worn it unbuttoned, but when I pay full price I want my bosoms to fit in it! The salegirls were talking about Twilight. I felt old.
    Also, thanks for publishing the We Love Colors code for Aus. Waiting on my parcel now.
