Autumn is finally here!! I can finally wear sleeves and fabric heavier than chiffon! I know that by August I’ll be complaining of the cold again, but at the moment I have seasonal fatigue and I’m so over dressing for hot weather. I’ve spent my weekend evenings sitting on the sofa, greedily consuming images of gorgeous winter fashions, adding to ‘wish lists’ and creating mood boards on Pinterest. Ah the wonderful enthusiasm that each new season brings.
Today’s outfit is one I purchased over a year ago but has also never had the chance to appear on these pages. It’s a simple 1970’s jersey knit dress I found in a local op shop for $12. Such a perfect fit and drape, I picked this one up to wear when flying internationally as it feels (but doesn’t look like) pyjamas! In fact, it is such a simple design and so easy to wear I’m going to take a pattern from it this week and see if I can make a few variations for the cooler months.
The dress reminds me so much of one my mum had when I was growing up. She wore hers with knee high brown leather boots, and the pussy bow at the neckline was also a regular for a while in her wardrobe. For me, I was having a bit of a Barbie moment this morning, and when I put on this new lipstick with it’s almost plastic like quality, I knew I wanted to give this dress a bit of a dolly feel. Lucky there is never a shortage of pink around here!
