As I have mentioned before, white is not a great colour for me. I am a stain magnet and someone that frequently dribbles her lunch on herself. I persevere because of it's freshness and simplicity. It makes me feel good and I feel like I can go anywhere in it - day/night, posh/casual etc.
The version worn today was a duty free purchase at Heathrow T3.
A Zara at the airport? Friggin genius I say!
This is one of those double layered dresses that are everywhere at the moment.
I love this style and the reason for buying this one is the casualness of it. It's basically a t-shirt turned into a dress and the layering, paired with the gathered waist, help prevent it look like a sack. I am 99% certain they do this in black but I cannot find it on the website. All I know is that it was just under £30, is a great length for in office/out of office and doesn't show your knickers due to a decent lining in the skirt.
Shoes: Chanel (cannot take these off! So comfortable and they make me feel special)
I think this white dress wearing is the start of something.
Case in point, wore one yesterday....also Zara and also not on the website as far as I can see...
...and further evidence to support this claim is that I recently purchased a white ASOS textured dress after seeing Simone's blogpost on the black version.
I don't think I am quite yet done. I keep looking online, seeing styles I like and saving them to basket. The Arrogant Cat one is probably the next one on my list because it's unlike anything I have seen anywhere else.
My dry cleaner is going to continue to love me :)
PS. Did anyone spot my lighter hair in the first set of pictures?
This is it people! This is THE colour. We got there on session 3 and it's the perfect blend of cool and warm. I cannot thank Anthony at Pastels/Ritz Carlton enough for his excellent work. Let me know if you would like a separate blogpost on it - in the meantime I will be dousing it in deep conditioner and preparing a beauty favourites post!
Take care all!
