Pretty Florals with Turquoise

I felt like wearing this dress again (first time worn here):
I needed to wear something a little warmer this time, so tossed on this thin brown wrap (it's like a super-sheer netting material).

The bigass rose is one of my favourite accessories, and these shoes are a long-time fave in my closet:
I liked the turquoise with the pinks of the dress. I have a hot pink lipstick on too!

The stuff:
Mmmm...turquoise shoes. I'll need to replace these...one day. Not quite just yet, they still have lots of good wear in them, but they do kill the bottoms of my feet (and I'm wearing full Dr. Scholl's inserts in them - oh yeah, I'm gellin').

Dress (Merona, thrifted), cardi (Guess, consignment), belt (Nygard), shoes (Le Chateau), ring (Plum), rose (Roberta's Hats), earrings (old, 90s).

  5. Those shoes and that dress. Just beautiful. And I am so scared of color combos, but I am drawing inspiration from you. Such an unexpected but great combination.
