Lady’s wear

This morning I saw a Lady I know who always wears very classic clothes. I normally don’t like her outfits but she does have good taste, just a different style from mine. I did love her outfit today though! It was ever so simple, in a way. She had a shift dress on, black base with flowers, and a pair of very tasteful, simple, black suede sandals. Although it is not really “my thing”, I think I would like to “play the Lady” every now and again…

So, if you want to try it too, you need a classic shift dress and a pair of beautiful heels, like so:

 

No jewellery s’il vous plait. And, if you have long hair, put it up.

Here are all the dresses with names:

Hot hot hot!

Dear me, temperatures are rising and looking stylish is becoming more and more difficult! That is if you are not willing to suffer in order to look good.

So, what’s a girl to do, look awful or find a way to survive both in a stylish and comfy manner? I had a long thought about this and the only solution I can find is a dress.

I have covered several kind of dresses and different colours/patterns too. Now I think is time to speak about the humble but always exquisite SHIFT DRESS. So plain, which is great, because you can adapt it to your daily mood and never goes out of fashion either. The cut needs to be  perfect of course. Fabric too.

Here are a few:

The very basic, classic shift.

With a tiny bit of movement.

DONDUP 3/4 length cotton dress white

Not quite a shift dress I suppose, but a more casual version of it.

8 3/4 length dress black/white pattern

8 3/4 length dress black/white pattern

This one too is a little different from the basic one but I thought it worth showing…

Next you need to decide what to make of it. How do you feel:

  • playful
  • energetic
  • courageous
  • provocative
  • quiet
  • bright
  • important
  • festive
  • confident
  • daring
  • rebellious
  • dynamic
  • miserable
  • uneasy

The last two I suppose aren’t the best, but we can all feel a bit down now and again and still leave the house and go to work/food shopping/school etc. Now, if even the clothes don’t make a difference, then you can still dress “safe and cuddly” for a day, just to get you through it.  If you feel any worse than what described above, stay at home!!

Here are some suggestions based on the above feelings:
