Eureka! ***retro-blogging***

I bought this dress last summer and I couldn't figure out a good way to wear it : I did like this and like that... and none of the solutions suited me.

But with the help of my magical red belt, I can say : Eureka! The dress has a fabric panel on the front that gives a floppy aspect, and the belt helps to structure the line.

I also realised I can't wear it without a skirt, since it is too short for me.

grey dress : Carmakoma (size 52)
red belt : Heavenly Belt on Ebay
tulip skirt: Yours (size 24)
ski pants : Asos (size 22)
buckle shoes : Jeffrey Campbell (size 9)

Winterisation : the Hawaian Dress ***retro-blogging***

So, here is my second "winterisation" attempt.. with the Hawaian dress from Asos I love so much.
As the background of the dress is black, I think it is easier to remix for a colder season.
This dress being really too short, I can't wear it without a skirt, or I feel uncomfortable.
I added a black short bolero with the crossboned sweater clip.

black pencil skirt : Asos Curve (size 22)

Winterisation : the pink flamingo dress **retro-blogging***

Summer has vanished pretty quickly and I feel frustrated that I haven't had enough occasions to wear my new pink flamingo dress. I must admit it also took me weeks to modify the hem of the dress that was a bit too short, I undid the hem and could win 5 cm, it's not a lot but it is now fitting better on the knee.

This dress was part of my new "pattern policy". I already told that I wore only formless black clothes for a long long time and since the beginning of the year I'm pushing myself into colors and patterns.

So I wanted to "winterise" this summer dress to enjoy it all year long!
Here are my 2 attempts :

The 1st one is with a red cardigan with my crossboned sweater clip, a red tight and of course the magic red belt..

The second try is with a short sleeve white shirt, that has very nice black buttons (invisible on this outfit...)

September Bonus ***retro-blogging***

A quick post just for a new accessory : the grey feather cape from Asos...that had been succesful on the fashion blogs

I haven't had the chance to wear it yet... it is quite dressy
I love it and couldn't resist showing it on my blog too!
