I rarely shop at teen orientated shops like, Supré, Fashion Fair and Valley Girl. I’m sure this will change once my girls are older. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, the sizes are so small, they make me feel depressed. Secondly, I do love great quality clothes when I can afford them. Thirdly, I try to ‘dress my age’ and the worst thing, well maybe not the worst, is a 30-year-old dressing in teenage clothing. However, when I walked past Fashion Fair at the start of winter, I spotted this dress in the window and I knew it would go with a lot from my wardrobe. I love wearing it.
Dress: Fashion Fair
Belt: Fashion Fair
Jacket: Purchased 5 years ago for $19 from Katies
Earrings: They were my Mums.
Tip: If you are wearing a patterned or floral dress, pick one or two complimentary colours for accessories. If you’ve chosen two, for example, I’ve picked two colours from the dress, brown and beige, to wear, balanced it out by having the same number of accessories for each colour.
I wore beige tights and jacket with brown boots and belt (2 beige/2 brown). Insead I could have worn my brown jacket and boots with black tights and belt (2 brown/2 black). The combinations are endless!
It’s safe to go with one complimentary colour. I could have chosen to wear black jacket boots, tights and belt, thus creating an entirely different look.
By mixing and matching complimentary colours, you can create a slightly different look so it feels like you are wearing a different outfit.
What I love most: The dress; it’s feminine and pretty.
