Spring/summer 2013; an excuse to update our wardrobes with the latest fashion trends: mod fashion; monochrome; androgyny; pinafore dresses and dungarees; floral appliqués; crop tops; and vibrant, bold hues. I don’t like to consider myself a fashion victim, but this year, I have to proclaim that I have indulged and taken a risk with pretty much all of the said trends, except one - vibrant, bold hues. I often wear denim, black and ‘safe’ colours (i.e. whites and blues), and only really use my accessories to add a touch of dramatic colour to my outfit - this is a perfect strategy for anyone who prefers to shy away from colour.
We are now coming to the end of spring/summer 2013, unfortunately, but there is light at the end of the tunnel: it’s a chance to shop the new Autumn/Winter 2013 trends, and the heavily discounted Spring/Summer 2013 trends, whoop! I've not immersed myself in to autumn/winter shopping yet, as I'm too busy buying and lusting after sales bargains, such as this dress from Zara.
The style/cut of this dress is right up my street, but the colour is quite a distance from my usual choice - it’s yellow, from top to bottom, left to right aaah! I’d normally walk straight past this in a shop, but I was drawn to it. It was reduced, and I knew I had a wedding to attend at the end of August; this was my chance to take a risk with vibrant colour. Okay, I've left it to the end of the season to experiment, but better late than never. This was my wedding outfit! The wedding didn't actually take place in a church, I just decided to take the shots here for ‘fashion blogging’ purposes - go figure!
B&%£H STOLE MY LOOK!
A week after I bought this dress, I found out that former Spice Girl, Emma Bunton, wore it on Saturday night prime-time television. It’s quite refreshing to see millionaire celebrities donning high-street, isn't it? It doesn't matter that the shoes or bags they pair it with probably cost more than a few of my shoes or bags put together. Emma wore her dress with a belt; I tried this, but it made the dress too short, which I didn't think was appropriate for a wedding.
