Here is my second Colour Challenge outfit. The dress is not as colourful as the first one but at least it’s not all black!
This dress is from Warehouse. I didn’t have any long-sleeved flower dress and this one has rather interesting details. The waistband is made of blue lace, and the sleeves are elasticated both on the arms and the cuffs- I think you can just about see it on the picture above. It has a lovely 70s-does-40s feel about it, and paired with pink accessories it made me feel all dolled-up, which is bound to cheer anyone up on a dreary day (as NOT demonstrated on the picture above!)
It’s not very thick so I wouldn’t wear it on very cold days, but with a plain long-sleeve t-shirt underneath this is perfect. It’s a 10 which is a little bit too big on the bust and waist- my upper body is petite compared to my hips- so I have to wear an elasticated belt on top of the lace waistband. It’s a bit of a pity, but you can still just about see it.
With postage this costs me about £16. That’s a real bargain considering Warehouse dresses are usually around £30-40 in the shops. Unlike the previous Boden dress there isn’t a load of them on sale on eBay, but a quick search will give you lots and lots of dresses in the same style.
I’ve just found how to give a vintage makeover to my pictures on Photoscape so expect a lot of messing around with the pics in the coming posts!!!
