I went crazy on Hell Bunny dresses these sales. I already owned the Hawaii and the Mexico dress, but I added not one, not two, but three Hell Bunnies to my collection. What can I say? I love me some 50′s swing dresses! This is the Olive dress in mint polka dots (I love the covered buttons!) and the Seasick Sue Blue Sailor dress (that print! to die for!). They’re basically the same dress, both with the little collared halter neckline and the pockets, but I thought the prints were different enough to warrant buying both. If you know what you really like and what suits your body perfectly, why not stick with that success formula?
I also ordered the Hell Bunny May Day dress off Amazon, and the print is so lovely, I might wear this to one of the two weddings I have to attend this Summer. I absolutely adore dresses with different colours in their print, which makes it very easy to match all kinds of shoes with them. These Lady Dragon globes in amethyst glitter are unexpectedly perfect with it. I can’t wait to wear them out together. I have to say though, Hell Bunny dresses are just so flattering, and very reasonably priced, compared to other retro brands.
And while I was at it, I also figured that my wardrobe of 50′s swing dresses couldn’t go without a bright pink petticoat. It’s so fluffy!!! I just wish it was a bit darker, more fuchsia, but it really is bright neon Barbie pink. I’m still pretty sure I’ll make it work though. Nothing wrong with bright pink in my book. I went for the Hell Bunny one this time, and it’s a lot fuller than my black one.
Another wedding outfit: yellow dress from Asos, yet another pair of Ted Baker Keanahs and this awesome skull clutch I got off eBay. I won the shoes on eBay (they have been pre-loved), and after that I realised that they would match this dress perfectly. All I needed then was the bag, and I’ll probably throw in a sparkly silver belt on the day itself. I especially love the texture of the skirt, with the fruffles (that’s what I’m calling them) and the random sequins.
Isn’t it the coolest? I love the contrast of the elegant grey satin and the bitchin’ bling of the skulls and the diamonds on the grip.
This pale gold dress from New Look has an amazing deep vee in the back and the cutest bow. I’m thinking about wearing it with these sky high Charlotte Olympia lookalikes from Blink.
So Charlotte Olympia, right? Until I can afford the real deal, these will have to do.
This wiggle dress from Asos looks horrible on the hanger, and I’m not sure the length is the most flattering on my body, so I guess I’ll have to choose my shoes wisely. I also happen to think that it would be perfect for my oral exam on Monday. It’s modest, yet very “me”. Paired with red accessories and some red lippy, it would look amazing.
These red courts, for example. They’re the same Bree style from Schuh as I have in black already. I bought the black ones in London this Summer, and I’ve worn them loads (I already had to have the heel tips replaced) already, so I figured a red version would be a good investment.
Last but not least, I ordered this awesome spiked denim jacket from Zara. I must say, I wasn’t too pleased about Zara’s online service. I ordered both this jacket and a navy cardigan, but when it arrived a couple of spikes were missing, and a couple others were already loose and about to fall off as well. So I took it to the store to exchange it for a bigger size, hopefully with all the spikes intact. While the sales people were nothing but friendly to me, I was a bit disappointed to see that they just hung the faulty jacket back in the store. Still, this jacket is amazeballs.
I had originally ordered these Hello sandals from Asos as well, and while they are truly stunning to look at (they’re so fun!), their fit is absolutely horrendous. There’s nothing to do but to send them back.← Previous
