Dress Week - Chartreuse & Black

I have decided that this week will be Dress Week. All dresses!

Chartreuse green t-shirt dress (consignment), black cotton short-sleeved jacket (Vero Moda, Plum), leather leopard belt (Plum), multi-bead earrings and necklace (Plum), black leather kitten heels with buckles (Roberto Vianni, The Cobbler).
The dress was a bargain at $24 - love the colour and texture. It's super stretchy and comfortable and would be a great travel dress (it's even washable). Easy to change up the accessories to change the look - can't wait to do this with tights & boots for Fall.

I have a love/hate affair with this jacket: it's totally cute on and makes my waist look tiny, but the cotton is a serious hair magnet. With two cats, that's not a good thing. I'm always picking bits off it. This is the first wear ever (!) for this belt - I got it on clearance at the end of last summer and completely forgot I owned it.

I used to be one of those people who kept a couple of pairs of shoes in her desk and just put them on in the morning and put them back every night (changed into my runners, oh, the shame). You know, then you toss them when they start to smell bad...Anyway, my New Year's resolution for 2007 was to wear different shoes every day to work, so I pulled these back into the mix of my regular collection so that I could get some good weekend wear from them if needed. They have a cool rock n' roll vibe to them:
Great stud detail on the heels and the fake wood kitten heel is awesome. Even the texture is funky. Love these. I should wear them more.

  1. I like the colour of this one, it reminds me of your New York dress.
