Welcome to 'The outfit of the week' (OOTW).
If you joined me for the Challenge last week, you will know my usual feelings on flowers... I am generally a much more a dramatic dresser: bold and bright colours with statement accessories. A dress with flowers is not exactly me. However there is this part of me that totally conflicts with my drama and comes out here and there: a more feminine and flowery version of me.
Let's get into this outfit. It is a wrap dress, a style that suits all body types. It is dark in colour with medium repetitive pattern.
During the challenge, I also talked about scale, the core idea is - you will look better with patterns and accessories that are in line with your bone structure.
Flowers generally create a more soft and feminine look. Be aware of this when you are wanting to command authority or attending a meeting where you need to be seen as the expert. Nothing wrong with dresses with flowers at all. It just depends on the occasion.
My shoes! I love these shoes and almost never get to wear them. However this dress was the perfect excuse to add a bit of drama and pick up the colour of the flowers. They are bright purple- the photo doesn't give justice to how bright they are ;)
I wore this dress to a soiree. I haven't really worn it much since then. 2 reasons for that: I do not always feel like wearing flowers. It just got summery in Perth and I find it a bit dressy for my lifestyle at the moment. In saying that I could easily dress it down if I wear it with a pair of silver flats for an afternoon bbq.
I am wearing: Dress: Somewhere on the internet..it was under $100. Shoes: Wayne Cooper, Earrings and bracelets: Swarovski.
