2013 Week 1: My Wednesday Style Collective......

Finally I'm going to start getting back into the swing of things after being so ill. Any sense of fashion, style or care has fallen to the wayside being ill over Christmas. There were a lot of days laying on the lounge in singlets and knickers, not really blog worthy stuff unless that sort of stuff rocks your boat.

But here I am with a little easy combo I wore last Friday for another trip into the hospital to sort some out-patient debacle with my results. It really was easy style (cheats style) but I tried my best considering how I have been feeling. I generally try and steer clear of wearing black as a block colour at all costs, it's just not my thing most of the time. But this day I needed comfort, so I went for this modern stretchy cotton short dress with ribbed bust that a friend passed on to me. Then I mixed it up with a vintage belt and bag and some colourful accessories, otherwise without that I wouldn't of left the house thinking the black would be too miserable on me.

Dress - from a friend
Belt - op shopped
Shoes - from a friend
Bag - op shopped
Flower brooch - made by me 

Again with cheats style another non-vintage tunic/mini dress, I had more follow up with the doctors so comfort was key again. I also thought what the heck go short with the mini dress and get a spring back in my step. I recently spruced up this piece in my down time and added the lace at the bust, to pretty it up a little. I'm not normally one for lace, but I think this is a nice touch with the denim.

Dress - shopped my wardrobe (retail buy 4 years ago)
Shoes - from a friend

So there we have my first style post for the year......yay I'm back on the horse.

You definitely suit shorter lengths, flash those long legs, love! Both dresses are really cute. Good to have you back on your feet! xxxx

Glad to see you getting back in the swing of things, Trudie. The denim looks great with the lace at the top and you dressed up the plain black beautifully :) Xx

Glad to hear you are feeling better.
Your outfits are lovely. The lace addition is a good idea.
