This D&G black dress is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe, because it’s so simple and classic that it can make you look elegant for any occasion in no time. I never thought I would wear tapestry print, but this D&G-inspired vintage clutch made me change my mind. It’s so small, that even I can pull it off without looking over the top. It’s actually my mom’s and she’s been using it as a make-up case for many years, but I had to steal it for the night, because I really think it completes my look. I also stole some other vintage cool stuff, like a coin wallet, a mirror/comb for the bag, and a cute little note pad/phone-pad. Excuse the overload of photos in this post. I really loved this outfit, and wanted to show you every little detail.
I say it a lot lately, but this is definitely one of my favorite outfits I have worn. I love these cork pumps, and I didn’t have the chance to wear them at all last year, so I started wearing them early this year. They’re #61 on my Shoeper Shoe Challenge by Shoeperwoman.com. And with only 4 more pairs to save until the end of the month, I’m confident, that my challenge will be successful. Unfortunately I won’t show some of the outfits until the early May but it’s ok. I’ll be waiting to read your comments below. Tell me, do you like this outfit?
As I told you on my previous post, today (August 15th) is one of the biggest religion holidays in Greece (The Assumption of Mary). For this reason, I’m not going to do a regular post but a “new kind of post” instead.
Today, I’m going to show you 5 ways to wear a multi-colored printed dress. When you have an item with so many colors on it, it’s a bit difficult to find a good match for the shoes and the other accessories, because you don’t want to overdo it with the colors. The most important advice I have to give you is to stick to one or some of the colors that your item, in this case dress, already has on it. My rule is never more than 3 colors – a rule my mom passed on me – because you don’t want to look like a clown.
You may pair it with flats or heels, that’s absolutely your choice, but if your dress has as many colors as mine on it, be careful with your selection of accessories. Let’s see how I wore mine.
1. With a pair of blue slingbacks and a bag of the same color.
Last month, I joined the Shoeper Shoe Challenge by Shoeperwoman.com, where I have to “save” all my shoes by wearing each pair at least once in duration of a year. If you’re wondering why, or if you simply want to read the rules in case you want to join as well (yes you can join whenever you like), you can click here. In order to join the challenge, I had to count my shoes, to find the total number…Also as an extra (optional) step, all who join are asked to take photographs of their shoe collection/shoe closet, simply for the joy of eye candy.
I counted 56 pairs then, (I have a few more, but I didn’t want them to be part of this challenge for personal reasons), but as you know my collection grew to 59 pairs last month. But let’s take it from the beginning…
