Outfit 26.2.11: Winterised dress

26.2.11: red and black and white

26.2.11: red and black and white

26.2.11: red and black and white



Outfit stats: * dress – bought in a pop up shop in a pub * top under – h&m * belt – charity shop * shoes – schuh * leather ring – found in the street!

This is only the second time I have worn this dress that I bought in a pub! How sad, because it is so lovely! This time I chose red to go with it.

The occasion I wore this to was to make dinner for some people – nachos with homemade guacamole, salsa and a baba ganoush like thing! and cupcakes! We had originally planned to have a cocktail party but nobody could make it and in the end a more low key thing suited me better anyway!

Also, I got ‘caught’ by my neighbour while taking these photos. He didn’t say anything, but looked very disapproving and I packed up my tripod very quickly!

    Aw, so cute! And lucky you for finding such a great leather ring in the street!

    I have very nearly been caught by my neighbours on numerous occasions when taking photos in the hallway of our apartment block – my boyfriend thinks it's hilarious!!

    The red goes so well with the dress 🙂

    You did NOT find that ring in the street. It's marvelous! You lucky duck. 😉

    That ring is fantastic! And I love the wintry styling of that lovely dress. 🙂

    This is my favourite way to winterize dresses also! I am wearing a similar combo right now (different colours) because Montreal decided to snow AT THE END OF MARCH. Ugh.

    Beautiful dress worn perfectly. Fancy finding that beauty on the street, I saw one of those in a trendy jewellers a few weeks ago for £48. xxx

    The dress is wonderful, as is the ring! I can't believe you found it! I always worry about getting caught by neigbours, even if there really is no reason to worry. Perhaps I just feel too self-conscious…

    Lovely dress and I have received some weird looks during picture taking too. I usually just keep posing and wave..lol That ring is a great find, I wish cool accessories landed near my house. Great outfit!! 🙂

    ps. Thank you for the follow and the lovely comments. Yes, I do make the headbands myself, but haven't made one in forever.

    Perfection! I love winterizing dresses and think you've done it perfectly.

  • lorena 21 March 2011, 5:56 pm

    That is a lovely dress you should wear it more 🙂
    I wonder what it is that makes us "feel bad or odd" when we are taking pictures of ourselves and get caught…

    I love the dress so much, and pairing it with red is a fabulous idea. That outdoor spot is really good for your photos. It blends with the dress and contrast with the tights. Tough for the neibour …Who cares???? hehehehhe.

    I've been caught a few times myself. It's a strangely discouraging experience. On the bright side, you found that ring ON THE STREET! Cheap cheap. I really dig it.

  • Anika 21 March 2011, 7:25 pm

    Wow sweetheart, I sat up straight when I saw your pics, consentrating on taking it in 😀 That dress is perfection in terms of fit! I adore the pattern as well, so lovely. Hugs for you xx

    My my! How can someone so feisty look so cute?! 😉

  • Melissa 21 March 2011, 9:54 pm

    Eh, who cares if neighbors disapprove. They don't understand style blogging! 🙂

    You look so great in that dress, I love the cute pattern! I really love the shape of the skirt and length as well. You're adorable!

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  • WendyBrandes 21 March 2011, 10:42 pm

    I'm literally LOL re the neighbor.

  • Emma Clark 21 March 2011, 11:52 pm

    I love your dress and then I read the post and love it even more now I know you bought it in a pub. Brilliant!

    You look wonderful. Please ignore your disapproving neighbour.

  • Terri 22 March 2011, 1:37 am

    Admiring the dress. And the ring. And one wonders what exactly the neighbor was thinking…

  • karen mouse 22 March 2011, 2:51 am

    That dress is gorgeous! I remember liking it when you first wore it, but it looks even better with the red!

  • madam0wl a.k.a Sandra 22 March 2011, 10:42 am

    Love that dress! The print and cut and everything. Looks great with the red too.

  • Grace Mitchell 22 March 2011, 3:58 pm

    I love love love that dress. It's so cute layered like this, and will be so cute without layers when the weather is warmer. What a find!
