2013 Week 44: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to pull the frock I'm wearing out of the wardrobe to find it's fitting me perfectly again. Since having bought it I have only ever worn it on two other occasions with one of those occasions featuring on the blog. For the life of me I can't find the other post, it must be a tagging issue gone awry. But I'm really feeling the love for this dress all over again. It's cotton and with the red, blue and white and floral is just a winner there's nothing to fault about it. Oh and it buttons through to the waist, which means it's now going to be on high rotation since I can breastfeed in this dress!

Dress - Nelly's Vintage Wishes
Belt - op shopped (yes I know this belt features a lot....but it's super versatile)
Flower brooch - made be me
Head scarf - op shopped
Wedges - retail
Sunglasses - op shopped

Yesterday here in Australia was Melbourne Cup Day and even though I had no Melbourne Cup plans nor was I even putting any bets on the horses, it was still nice to put on a nice frock (which is the norm anyway really) and do the family day care run for Sarah, run errands and what not. Of course the statement arose "oh you look nice, are you having lunch for the cup".....ummm no this is just me on a normal day.

Anyway, for the second time, you look gorgeous. I loved that dress last time you wore it and it looks even lovelier with the head scarf tied a la Grace Kelly! Fabulous! xxx

Ahhhhh......you look freaking gorgeous! I LOVE that frock, one of my faves on you. There is something so classic about red, white & blue. You remind me a bit of Audrey Hepburn. Beautiful. Xx

With the exception of a pretty dress on, it was a non-event cup day for us. I didn't watch it.

Thanks precious. I'm really starting to love this colour combo, it seems to be a combo that suite so many.

Love the print on the frock, and look at your teen-tiny waist! Gorgeous 50s vibe with the headscarf and sunglasses. xxxx
