Belt: I.D.S Fashion
Shoes: Comfortview “Regina”
I’m getting a last little bit of wear out of my winter wardrobe before spring in Melbourne sets in properly. This classy wool-blend dress definitely isn’t one of those trans-seasonal numbers that you can wear on cooler spring days, so I’ll be saying goodbye to it for the rest of 2014 after today.
The first time I wore it a few of you mentioned that you thought it was a little bit too big for me. Actually it’s a perfect fit, but the addition of a belt does give it a bit more definition.
I do love, love, love the draped neckline, and it’s inspired me to make my next sewing project Colette’s “Myrtle” dress (Australian buyers can get it from Stitch56).
The last Colette pattern I tried was a bit of a disaster, but their Macaron is still one of my all-time favourites and I’ve made it three times already successfully.
Dali Necklace: NIXIN
For my birthday earlier this year I decided to treat myself to this beautiful opal necklace from LA-based jeweller NIXIN. It’s called the “Dali” necklace and it’s just gorgeous in person. The Australian opal glows in pales blues and blush pinks that remind me so much of a dawn sky and the little bezel-set diamond further up the chain sparkles like the morning star. I call it my “new day” necklace.
Funny, I was looking at the Lagamta website this morning and was looking at this dress. I couldn’t seem to select anything to purchase though…. Not too sure why :S It looks fabulous on you 🙂
You must totally forget me. I’m Carol and left you a comment on your blog website 2 years ago. I just saw that picture you wearing your mom’s plaid shirt and holding your new born brother. I think you may have interest in this. https://www.etsy.com/listing/195106260/womens-plus-size-clothing-plus-size
I think it will look gorgeous on you.
Just send my love to your family and that lovely boy. 🙂
The necklace is amazing.
Really like the belt with the dress, and the colour of the shoes against the dark fabric!
I need to learn how to not be so ‘matchy-matchy’. Take this outfit, for instance: if I were wearing that brown belt, I’d want to wear brown shoes. Or, if I was wearing blue shoes, I’d want to wear a blue belt. Or, I’d want to wear a statement necklace/statement earrings/brooch/scarf (some accessory, or group of accessories) in the colors of brown/black(for the dress)/ blue.
I really want to learn how to mix up my wardrobe. You should do a post on this! I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles with this!
