2013 Week 6: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

My kindy run outfits and general fabulousness continues this week. Gee that sounds a bit up ones self doesn't it? Oh well if you can't bask in your own wonder who's can you, right? So this past week I busted out some combinations I was really pleased with, and two in a particular were these numbers.
This handmade dress has lots going on that you can't see and in coming weeks you'll see it a couple times over as I show it off in different ways. It is actually a reversible dress made from two vintage seersucker tablecloths. It also features an interesting back to the dress, but I'm sorry to tease I don't have a pic of the back (ok I forgot) but I will feature it in another style post.

Dress - another sweet number for Nelly at Vintage Wishes
Black Tee - op shopped
Shoes - op shopped
Beads - op shopped

For a little bit of floaty fun this week I took this strapless dress and wore it as a skirt. This dress is a vintage revamped upcycled number I bought from a market years ago. I teamed the skirt with the same black tee from the outfit above and added complimentary accessories.
Dress as Skirt - market buy
Black Tee - op shopped
Shoes - Retail
All accessories - op shopped

I love doing these style posts especially when I can look back and say to myself gee I really loved how that outfit came together it's such a great catalogue to look back on see what's working for you and what isn't..

I love the dress as a skirt, Trudie - I have a blue and white obsession at the moment haha. It looks great with the simple black t-shirt and you always accessorize so well! Also keen to see more of the dress up the top - how interesting it is! I don't think I've ever seen one like it :)

I love both the outfits, and your playful, colorful, casual style in general :)

It's really pretty and so light and floaty and has micro-pleating as well. The first dress is pretty awesome it's a two for one you can't beat that.

Aww thank you so much Van for the compliment. I love colour so it's a rarity for me to put black in the mix.
