L and I have perfected our morning routine: he stays out of my way, as I'm a dragon before I've had a coffee. It's almost a ballet in our single bathroom as I apply my make-up and he brushes his teeth before leaving for work.
- Top - Topsy Turvy USA, thrifted; last worn here (3rd outfit) with my Buffy dress for brunch in October 2019
- Dress - Dolce & Gabbana, vintage 90s, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in December 2019 for brunch out with Simona
- Shoes - Mellow Bossa Nova, Fluevog; first worn here (5th outfit) for brunch in February
- Coat (below) - Zara, gift from Dominique; last seen here in February in the same outfit as these shoes
Now that we are in March, it's time for me to start reviewing my fall/winter wardrobe, and planning re-wears of my favourite things. I "cut" this dress last year, but my girlfriends convinced me to keep it and they were totally right.
It is a little pill-y and the elastic in the "bra straps" is nearly shot, but heck, that's part of the charm. This is no let's-visit-the-90s cheap reproduction; this is the real deal.
Outerwear - I'm done with this coat. It's cool, it's fun, but it's not worth the space in my coat closet (which is crammed). It's also fuzzed out in places from various bags I have carried.
- Leather gloves - Club Monaco, consignment
They are searingly-bright, highlighter orange neon, by the way - I blew up the colour in all of these pictures to try to match the actual neon, but it just doesn't work. In person, it's "put on your sunglasses or they'll sear your retinas!" (which I said to many of my colleagues today).
- Necklace - swap from Vero
- Studded leather wrap - Kipling, thrifted
- Chain/leather wrap - local
- Earrings - thrifted
I love the bright shoes with this Sheila! I'm definitely a fan of the shoes - even if most of my shoes are boring neutrals. I do need to add more colour! I tend to focus on scarves or bags for brights, need to mix it up a little!ReplyDelete
I adore bright and colourful shoes - go for it, Mica! Thanks - glad I'm not the only one who loves them!Delete
What on earth is L thinking? Those shoes are fabulous! xxxReplyDelete
He's a point-toe pump guy, all the way. I cannot change his mind. Thanks, Vix!Delete
Those shoes are all kinds of neon orange awesomeness!! I'm definitely a fan too!ReplyDelete
Yay! Thanks, Cheryne!Delete
I think L. must need his eyes tested, as those neon orange shoes are brilliant. They've got a Dutch clog vibe going on, but in a good way. Plus, they match that groovy top brilliantly. I'm glad your friends persuaded you to keep the D&G dress, as it hugs your wonderful figure in all the right places. Also a big fan of that black necklace! xxxReplyDelete
He'll never like a chunky shoe, Ann! As I noted to Vix, he's a fan of the classic pointy-toe pump. I'm excited for summer outfits with them.Delete
Yes, sometimes my friends bring me back - it's such a great dress. Thanks!
Ah men, gotta love 'em, but good thing we don't always take them seriously, lol. Love the outfit, love the shoes.ReplyDelete
I dress for me first, always, Nana! Thank you so much!Delete
I know the ballet of sharing a bathroom. And I like your shoes so I guess, in the future, I won't ask your husband for his opinion of my outfits!ReplyDelete
Nope, not unless you want a really honest opinion! Thanks, Ally!Delete
The shoes are cool. They look comfy so that'd make me wear them!ReplyDelete
I like your rainbowy top!
We have 2 bathrooms upstairs but we use the shower in the ensuite rather than than using the main bathroom (less cleaning!)x
They are super-comfy, Kezzie, thanks! I'm jealous of 2 bathrooms.Delete
I had to laugh at you “out on your sunglasses or they’ll sear your retinas!” comment. You are humorous!ReplyDelete
Y’know, I saw a Fluevog ad today and thought of you. I’ve never seen Fluevog shoes being advertised in Australia before! X
I'm rather silly in person - I often make people laugh. Yes, Fluevog has a store in Melbourne! Go check it out!Delete
I just love that L used the word "atrocious" to describe the shoes! I'm not a big fan of the colour, but I do like a chunky platform.ReplyDelete
He's not shy about sharing his thoughts! Cool, thanks, Shelley!Delete
That D&G dress is an absolute classic, I totally agree. It was a defining style of the decade and one that looks no less chic and stylish as it did three decades ago. I adore how you've layered it here and am 100% behind your choice of shoes. The punchy orange goes awesomely with that delightful blouse.ReplyDelete

Yes, I love that it is such a classic look of the 90s - it hasn't dated like so many other styles have. Thank you, Autumn! I love the neon!Delete
All Kinds of Awesome, obviously, I love their fabulously chunky orangeness!ReplyDelete
And love how they match your top, and love your black accessorizing!
I so agree - I love them! Thank you!Delete
