My fashionistas, here is a look I donned in a quintessential sundress on last sunday when the temperature in London town soared as high as 31 degree C.
Dress: Vinatge Boutique in spitafields1 market, London| Bag: Primark | Hair accessory: Claire’s | Shoes: Vintage Boutique spitafields1 market, | Bracelet:Louise Roe collection | Meke-up: Illamasqua red lipstick | Nail paint: Barry M mint green (available in all Boots stores) | Sunglasses: Ray-ban brown
I had been longing to don a Sundress since it’s ”officially summer” here but how can i sport a sundress without the Sun being out shining. This year’s sundress shape is the wonderfully forgiving 1950s silhouette. And I found a chance in the last sunday (when I got burnt in the 31 degree C, very evident in my photos…the MOCHA ME).It is first time ever in my last 4 year’s stay in London that I saw the temperature crossing 30 C. Better late than never…as they say;D Loved the broderie anglaise lace work on my dress, it is so romantic and the bow brown belt made it even more dramatic and so ”girly”:) You must have seen this lace dresses in so many high street stores already. I was so choosy and had to pick this one after a long search and trying on many.
It was HOT, so the hair has to be tied, I have made a side-saddle and added this feather chain hair clip that I have in my wide and varied collection of hair accessories. I love the pop-up of colours on this cream Sundress. Such a breath of fresh air! I loved the shape of my red messenger bag. It barely has space for my iphone and a Mac studio fix mirror but I just find it a perfect fashionista accessory:) I have not worn this pair of polka dot wedges for ages. This is probably my 2nd time of wearing this. They are not very comfortable to walk in but as you know I can bear the pain if i have to…all for fashion;D
I can’t think of putting too much make up in such weather, therefore, I went bright on lips and kept everything tonned down. My bracelet is a freebie I received from the International Stylist Louise Roe when I attended one of her fashion talk in London earlier this year. The beige colour and the golden studs are so posh and classy that I can simply wear this piece of accessory with any outfit. I was teased by a friend how do I get time to change my nail-paint every week, I just say ” I DO”;) And FYI I cook everyday and manage to keep them maintained:) As they say you prioritize and make your to-do list to avoid ”mouring over lack of time”. This was one of the pastel shade I picked up for this summer. I heart it:)
Having taken inspiration from the dresses Jonathan Saunders and Louis Vuitton showed in their catwalk shows, I have tried this Look with the quintessential summer-Sundress. Try it if you like it, share what you think, I like to hear what you have to say:)
