bird dress

birds c

dress :: c/o modcloth
socks :: vintage deadstock
shoes :: old, from sportsgirl (and I really need some new platform sandals! You know, for winter. Yeah.)

It has finally cooled down enough for me to wear my bird dress by Traffic People from Modcloth. When I was choosing this dress, I swung between loving it and being a bit unsure – the colour, I don't usually wear wraps, and so on. When it arrived and I tried it on for the first time I was chuffed. Everything about it is perfect! My favourite bit is the piping detail at the neckline. I will be wearing my birdies a lot this Autumn.

Love a novelty print and those birdies are no exception. Gorgeous.

You are so lucky you can wear those colours - I just look drab. Realy nice outfit. The shoe/sock combo makes it, I think.

Now, you must remember that platform sandals will be cheaper the end of the summer, hence you MUST purchase them now (just in time for winter). Saving money. That is what I tell the other half. SAVING MONEY!

I have been feeling the change in seasons in the last couple of days. You too? I am starting to look at winter clothes, even though we, no doubt, have more 30 degrees days in front of us. *sighs* Hate winter.

I'm not a big wearer of light beige colours either but that looks great on you. The piping and print is darling!

Love the satchel in the shot too. Nice touch!

Weirdly, this dress reminded me of a dress Holly Fulton designed a few seasons ago. It had Art Deco style bird prints on it. I think it is stil available at The Outnet but, it must be very pricey. :/

glitterfell said...

That dress looks awesome and I love how you pull off the socks and sandals look so well. It's a strange combo admittedly and doesn't look good on everyone. It does make me want to wear more socks with sandals. Any tips? :D

Zoë Yule said...

Oh, cute! I would look like the undead in that colourway - on you it looks great :) I have been meaning to ask if you have any tips for shopping on Modcloth?! I'm wary of sizing and fit over the interwebs, but gah! it's hard to resist that site! Especially with the exchange rate where it is... I'd love to hear any wisdom born of experience you might have to share!

Lulu said...
