I told you last week that my love of florals was unwaivering didn’t I? Well here I am again rocking a floral print for this week’s theme “RED” a challenge I initially thought I’d be sitting out of since I don’t own a single red item of clothing, or so I thought.
I bought this gorgeous dress at Macy’s in New York, it’s by Adrianna Papell and it’s a size 22W. It’s a little loose around the bust and waist so I’m going to have a tailor work their magic to make this little gem fit like a dream. It’s such a gorgeous, lady-like dress and the colours are oh so fun.
It’s kind of silly but I love the fit of this dress so much that it didn’t even bother me that I had my arms uncovered, sure I could have popped on a white knit cardigan but I felt it would do the dress a disservice, it deserved to be flaunted… so I did exactly that!
The ensemble cried out for a bit of Glomesh so I pulled out my lovely white, mint condition piece and paraded it about for the afternoon. When I got home I wrapped it back up in tissue, slipped it into it’s bag and tucked it into it’s box for safe keeping. Yes, that’s how much I love it.
This post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning my fabulous glasses, if I recall correctly they were from a discount store in the costume section. The best $2 I’ve ever spent! If you look closely you can just make out Steve in one lens and Aidan in the other… Steve is of course taking credit for the cool shot. He’s doing a great job isn’t he, my star photography pupil.
Since coming back from New York I’ve fallen for heels… well for short periods of time anyway. Now I know that wider fitting heels are out there and they’re comfortable I’m a brand new woman when it comes to shoes. They really do make your legs look amazing!
I was given this pair by my friend Teer who is a total pin up babe. They’re from Torrid and they fit perfectly but I rarely wear them because as I explained before I never wear red. Plus I teeter a little too much for my liking due to the really thin heel spikes, but that said I’m on my heel-training-wheels so maybe I’ll gain a bit more confidence and start strutting around in these like nobody’s business.
Meet my other pupil Aidan, totally working it for the camera isn’t he? He interrupted my session several times exclaiming “My Turn!” so I’d move aside and let him do his thing. This one is my favourite because in the moment I didn’t realise what he was doing but in the photo you can clearly see he’s studying what I’m doing and replicating it to perfection, I was so proud! I think when we head out each weekend to take my photos he’ll have to get dressed up too… what kind of mini fashion monster have I created!?!
