Wearing: yellow Lady Dragons
I felt it was high time to get the outfit posts back on the road, more specifically for those outfits that involve new shoes that weren't included in the shoe challenge. To be honest, the amount of shoes I've gathered since the challenge ended in September is disturbing. These yellow Lady Dragons have been on my wishlist for a really long time, they're from a few seasons back, but I finally tracked them down on eBay. Still on the list: the golden ones, which seem almost impossible to find in my size (must mean people really love them), and the pink glittery ones.
I was planning on wearing these to a party in Brussels on Saturday, but to be completely honest I was pretty quick to change into my flats once I got there. They're not too high and easy to clean off (as it promised to get a little dirty, with people throwing their cups and cigarette buds on the floor), but after a while they pinch my toes, as they're quite narrow. And I had already walked quite a bit in them, and I ended up on my feet until six in the morning. So yes, I actually was sensible about it.
This dress gets picked from the collection quite a bit actually, it's a real staple piece in my wardrobe. I love the simplicity of the figurehugging black mini, and the edginess of the puffy sleeves. Definitely one of my best purchases ever, especially since it's special and cheap. That's double score in my book! I usually get quite a lot of compliments about it. Also back in the game now that it's getting colder, are my Bambi earrings. Those were an Etsy find. They're 3D printed and add just the right touch of whimsy to any outfit. You'll probably see a lot more of them!
