If you know me…you know I LOVE colour. So this post is a bit of a different one for me as I am showcasing basically a black and white dress. It is also a more feminine look than I really go for with a high neckline and an A-line skirt. The dress was from Marks & Spencer and was paired with a pair of mules also from Marks. I was lucky that the lovely Sabrina Sikora pushed me into wearing mules (I always looked at them with an eye brow raised) and well they were peep toe too which makes me go EEK even more (I have to keep a decent pedicure on those tootsies). However, they ARE super comfortable and pretty much went with every outfit I had during the summer of 2015. Also a heel that you can walk around in in HK? SOLD. Thankfully Marks & Spencer have reproduced them this Spring 2016. They obviously know a good thing when they see it. Shame though that they did not reproduce the navy version (gutted I didn’t get those last year). For other options on the mule shape…check out Australian brand SENSO (they ship to HK!) from closed toe, open toe to various shades of animal print (cue heart emojis at this point).
The dress I am wearing in this outfit post is from Summer 2015 for Marks & Spencer. However the shape is classic and super flattering for most silhouettes. For curvy girls like me, a nipped in waist helps give you a nice shape and though sleeveless, it is easy to cover up your bingo wings with a little cardigan (or just own the said bingo wings like I do). I have found local brand WHAT THE FROCK? to be a great affordable option. No pattern but coming in a multitude of colours which adds personality to your outfit!
What the Frock ‘French’ Dress in Pink
I have heard from a professional matchmaker that such a dress like this is perfect for a first date. It is feminine, fashionable (without being too fashion aka scary) and has scope via the colour and the accessories you add to it to make it your own personal style.
So there you go…dresses that do not have crazy prints can be a good thing…
Thanks as always to Bryant for making me look semi decent in photos, that boy is a miracle worker and super talented.
