I can’t tell you how happy it makes me when I buy an item of clothing and then discover it’s EXACTLY the same colour as ANOTHER item of clothing I own. It makes me so happy, in fact, that I have to wear both of those items together immediately, even although one of them just so happens to be YET ANOTHER Hell Bunny cardigan, and I promised myself I’d try my best to lay off the cardigans for while. (In my photos, I mean. I’ll obviously still wear them aaaalll the damn time in real life. I’m wearing one as I write this, actually…)
This particular cardigan is, I think, my fifth from this brand, which means I’ve basically collected the whole set in this particular style now. Do I get a prize? No? What do you mean, “It doesn’t work like that?” Oh well, I guess the cardigans are prize enough. I didn’t actually buy this one with the intention of wearing it with this dress, but as soon as I noticed how perfectly matched they were, there was just no other option. They don’t
call me Matchy McMatcherston for nothing, you know. Or AT ALL, for that matter.
The dress, meanwhile, is an old one by Louche, and it’s one of my favourite purchases ever. What it’s NOT, however, is particularly versatile, which means that my “remix” section at the bottom of the post is even less inspiring than usual, being basically a couple of extra photos of me wearing the dress in more-or-less the same exact way. Such is the “problem”, if you can call it that (and I DON’T call it that…) of the “statement” dress: it’s designed to be an outfit all by itself, so all you can really do to “remix” it is to wear it with different shoes, and maybe add a cardigan if you feel like going kerrazee.
For this outing, I’ve once again accessorized with The Wind, so apologies for the shocking state of my hair in some of these: I’m seriously starting to wonder why I bother blow-drying it when I could just step outside and let the wind do it for me!
