Dress: Bettie Page Clothing
Shoes: Chie Mihara
If the Pinup Girl Clothing dress below is a Betty, then this Bettie Page Clothing dress is definitely a Joan. The russet orange colour is lovely to wear and gives my pale colouring a good warmth. The fabric’s pretty thin, and creases easier than I’d like and the dress never looks as flattering in photos as it does in real life. But I still like it.
Melbourne’s brief flirtation with spring came to abrupt halt last week, and we’ve gone back into chilly, rainy winter. I’ve realised how futile it is to use the tags “spring”, “summer”, “autumn” and “winter” here in four-seasons-in-one-Melbourne, so I’ve resorted to “warm”, “hot”, “cool” and “cold”. Today – for the record – is “cold”.
This weekend, mercifully, it was merely “cool”, which meant that I didn’t freeze in my strapless pink dress doing my Bridesmaidy duties. Photos to come 🙂
What is this dress called? I am a bit obsessed with it now!
This dress looks fantastic on you! I also really love the glasses, the way you did your hair, the shoes – great outfit! 🙂
Love it! The ‘Joan’ dress is so you, Lilli.
Sydney is warming up and I’m sadly abandoning tights and unveiling my pale white legs to the world 🙁 I’d happily embrace a few more chili days!
Fantastic on you- very jealous!
You are lovely with this dress!!!
“Salut” from France
Oh my! That’s the most desirable piece of clothing i’ve ever seen! And you look just stunning!!!!
i love your shoes!
Nice photos. And you do wear the color well.
Lilli, you’ve managed to pull off sexy and demure beautifully! What a lovely dress in a knockout color too! I love the neckline and sleeves. A perfect match for those gorgeous shoes!
That color is terrific, and the cut is so very Joan! I completely agree with the comment above mine: you manage to pull off sexy and demure, which is no mean feat!
Ahem. That’s my colour. Can I have that dress when you get sick of it?
Yes Joan is a perfect name for the sexy librarian look dress!
I love the color and the retro feel a bunch! A large bunch! 😉
I want this dress so bad, I love this colour and have so many *accessories* in this colour BUT not a single dress. Will try my luck finding it online.
yes, this dress is awesome – but it looks too long for you.
Maybe hem it up an inch. The sleeve also look too long. Kind of like a costume that doesnt fit quite right.
This russet dress and styling is very much like Joan from Mad Men (played by January Jones.)
