If in doubt, wear green

yes, ANOTHER polka dot dress...

Matchy-Matchy is my middle name

Forever Amber

Dress: Louche ‘Leigh’ spotty dress // Shoes: Ted Baker ‘Keanah’ 

After the extreme wordiness of my last post, I’m going to keep the talk to a minimum with this one, and merely note that these spots? Are pin dots, not polka dots. So that’s TOTALLY different, seriously…

Ted Baker 'Keanah' pumps

(I will also just quickly note that these shoes are one of my favourite pairs, evereverever. I know I say that about all my shoes, but this time I really mean it.)

Louche 'Leigh' green polka dot dress

(My hair is different in this one. It started out like this, but it fell down, and I couldn’t seem to re-create it, so I had to fall back on my trusty DonutHead, which is this year’s Messy BunHead.)

    That shade of green is pretty much my favourite colour at the moment. So gorgeous!

    Oh my goodness, can I just HAVE your shoe collection? I don’t even care that they’d be waaaay too small for me, I’m sure I could find a surgeon to remove my toes.

    Another dress of yours that is truly amazing! I totally want one, love the collar and the pleats of the skirt part. And these shoes go so well with it. You are a fashion inspiration :-)

    You look beautiful! Those colours look amazing on you, even though the same colours would make me look ill.

    So lovely. I adore the dress but the link doesn’t work and I’m having trouble tracking it down. Help?

    (I’m also a redhead and a ruddy faced redhead at that. I’m always excited when I find a way to wear a bit red/pink)

    I saw this look on chictopia and just had to see more! The colors of the dress look great with your red hair. Super cute shoes too :)

    Dear amazing girl, I found your blog absolutely by chance, while searching swomething about Kathleen Winsor’s book. I had to share, that I was astonished (!) first of all by the title you’ve chosen for your blog, and second by your rear pure beauty and incredible style!
    I couldn’t miss to follow you (on bloglovin’), off course!
    Something in your style reminds me of Bree Van de Kamp from Desperate housewives, who I’d say I admire the most, according to characters’ style. :)
    I would be happy if you spare some time on my blog and, may be “hear your voice”.:)
