Has anyone noticed?


That I've been wearing black and white for a week now? No? Not even a twitter?
I thought I'd gotten away with it until Mama phoned and pointed out to me that a girl ought to wear a bit of colour now and then and for heavens sake will I put on some lipstick.
She has also offered her styling advice and has an outfit planned so keep watch for Mama Melbourne- I couldn't look any more like a Nana if I tried so I'm looking forward to what she has in store.
I shouldn't jest, she taught me every thing I know and defies the laws of stylishness so this ones for you Ma, complete with a bit of lippy thrown in!
Dress: Vintage from Scavengers
Heels: Zola
Jewellery: Mouche

Gosh that's a nice day dress! It's difficult to find stuff like this... Everything in the stores is either too dressy, too work-y or too tarty. I'm hoping that with the whole floral trend this Summer, pretty day dresses will be abundant in the shops. Your dress is perfect though.

Lil' Puch said...

You've been looking beautiful all week long I can assure you.

The Clothes Horse said...

You look fantastic. I'm amazed at how classy you make those shoes appear! Usually that clear, plastic looks...not so classy, but on you it's brilliant.
Oh mothers! Mine I think prefers it when I dress more simply, but she does love my vintage dresses.

Grant said...

But black and white is so classic, so endlessly stylish, like your fine self.

I do like this dress though, it suits you nicely.

I wouldn't have noticed, because I'm new around here, but you always look sharp to me, no matter what color you're wearing. Or not wearing.

That said, you really wear red well.

I've got to get a better look at those shoes! For me, it's difficult to fixate on your color pallette because I'm always so transfixed my the overall look. Because you do such a great job of putting together a cohesive look, I think you can get away with black and white all the time darling!

Loving that dress, it looks fantastic on you. I agree with your mum and btw, my mum thought me everything I know as well. Those shoes are very cool, are they from a store or online?

MISS GLITZY said...

Black and white was alright but your mum was right, colors and lipstick fit you so well.

Super Kawaii Mama said...

This is my favorite in a long time, it literally jumps off the screen. Mama does know best. :)

The burst of colour has done more to wake me up then my latte with an extra espresso shot this morning! You look sensational - the red is simply divine on you!
My mother is quite the same - she's always telling me to stop wearing black and wear more colour.
