Wearing It Well…
Warning: There are a couple of lingerie pictures at the end of the article, so if that offends then best stop reading …
I like to get wear out of my pretty clothes.
With that in mind I’m being careful about my purchases to ensure I get things that are going to get wear while giving me a kick doing so and that I collect pieces that are special and significant.
This dress surely fits this bill and when I spied it when we attended the Winter Magic Festival up in The Blue Mountains, west of Sydney a month ago, I knew it has to be mine!!
To the actual festival I wore a Steampunk costume:
Time To Shop!
There was an opportunity to shop and spend some money in the community.
In a little village called Leura there are heaps of cute shops.
I was attracted to the unusual print of the dress.
The print is of Australian native flowers, particular to The Blue Mountains, which makes the dress particularly unusual and more attractive to me.
It turns out the designer is a local artist who had the fabric especially made, the idea of which I just love!! It is not going to be a fabric that I will see on everyone, and not everyone would like it but it suits my eclectic and statement making aesthetic.
The photos for today’s post are in my kitchen because we are in the midst of winter and although very sunny outside, it’s crazy windy!!
Back to the dress; I love the muted greens, burgundy and red set against the black background, making the dress versatile and able to be worn a number of different ways.
I chose to wear burgundy lace tights, red sunnies and burgundy booties with it to go out to lunch.
All Buttoned Up!
Cute, wooden buttons close up the front of the dress and their placement, slightly off-centre, is pretty and contemporary.
I am of course also loving the pockets and the darting in the back to give it a fitted and feminine shape.
And Then Unbuttoned!!
Being a matchy, matchy person I like my underthings to match my outer wear.
So with this outfit I wore my black and burgundy lingerie set.
I want to feel good about myself from the inside out and continue to embrace my feminine and sexy side and encourage others to do the same!
