Little Pink Dress

Spicing things up with a bit of colour, though you never really get to see me in the all black outfits that make the rotation. This dress was bought after a brand told me to "bring some heels, oh, and something pink"- the day before a big interview. And if you thought there'd be something pink in my wardrobe, well, I went to Vinnie's and grabbed some dresses from the reduced pile- mostly because Aussie sizes are so painfully big on me, and partly because it wasn't until after many fuchsia/ magenta/ and this weird colour between coral and hot pink monstrosities, that I found a little blush gingham dress. It was beautifully lined and flared, with a Grecian draped bodice that would be a flattering fit for everyone (but me). 

Forever New dress (thrifted from Vinnies), Max Mara coat, Primark shoes, Nasty Gal sunglasses, DKNY purse, Choies* necklace (originally a headpiece- available here for $6.90), MAC Russian Red lipstick.

So I got on the packed train to the interview when the man next to me spilled green curry all over my dress. But hey, it came out in the wash as soon as I got home. Another thing that was waiting for me at home was an adorable polka dot, pink(!) box containing the gold and pearl headpiece that I wore to Australian fashion week. I made this 'asymmetrical' necklace by experimenting with the front and side clasps in order to try to get some more wears out of one of my favourite accessories.
