Same Same




I loved the way that my red skirt looked in the sun so I thought I'd swap things around and wear it again, just a little different.
I don't own a lot of red, in fact I'm not even sure I like wearing it, but we are cooking at the moment(it's the hottest day ever recorded here in Melbourne, 46.4c) so it's kind of fitting I think!
Oh, and the skirt was a gift from a dear friend(you know who you are!) from an op-shop. My friends know me so well, not sure how many people would be thrilled with a gift from a charity shop but for me it is just perfect and I love it.
My love of pencil skirts is burgeoning- I have, er, well lets just say that they don't sit lonely in the wardrobe!
Skirt: A lovely gift via and op-shop
Tshirt: Cotton On
Leather sandals: Tony Bianco factory outlet
Bag: Camden Market
Aviators: H&M
Earrings: I made them

Ok, yeah...red looks absolutely lovely on you, like everyone said! I understand your love for black and white, but you just pull off colors so well...it wouldn't be fair to limit yourself.

The print on the skirt is beautiful....

46 degrees... Hotttt!
Your outfit is lovely =]

Kat George said...

Lovely as always. I tagged you on my blog, you don't have to do it... The snow here in London keeps me blog ridden but I'm sure there's far more glorious things to do in that sun! xx

Skye said...

You look marvelous in a pencil skirt, even in the baking fires of hell there.

I bought a pencil skirt yesterday from Lifeline, but I think it might have to become a mini for me to get away with it.

Your blog is fabulous!!!!

Patrizia simulacra said...

The wiggle/pencil skirt really looks quite stunning on you. You are fortunate as others such as myself find them very unflattering. I look all bumps and lumps where you quite streamlined. It lengthens your torso whilst minimizing your (already tiny) waist. Your friend knows how to pick skirts which are highly flattering. Bravo!

styledigger said...

Skirt looks like from Marc Jacobs spring collection!

PS. 46?!?!?! Too hot:)

A dreamer said...

loving the new location!

you've just inspired me to wear my bag (that looks a lot like yours but is from somewhere a lot less interesting) with the full long strap. i've been winding mine over so that it's short...

HoneyBunny said...

you look great! I love your bag<3 :*

Anonymous said...

Red suits you! I can't believe you managed to look so composed in that heat..

what a lovely skirt! perfect fit and looks great with the splash of colour! lulki xxx

Porcelain Blonde said...

Ohhh I love the sexy strappy sandals especially with the perfect red pedi <3

And your curves look killer in that t shirt. I'm sure Cotton On has never looked so glam!

You're inspiring me to find a longer length pencil/wiggle skirt. I have wiggle dresses but I've never done the skirt thing.
You make me want to give it a go :) xxx
