black vintage full skirted dress, stripes, and a touch of gold

bw black stripe skirt dress a Last Saturday, I wore the last of my black and white outfits – well, at least for now – and one of my favourites. I paired the black vintage silk faille dress with a green and white stripe skirt (ok, so it's not quite black and white then) (but the green is a very muted dark khaki, it almost looks black!) and my new black bag. I also wore some vintage fur over my vintage (oh, how many times can I say vintage?!) grey princess coat becuase it was freeeeezing – Melbourne's doing winter very well at the moment! Not only was it freezing, it was really windy, too. Super crazy windy. Look at my hair! Did someone say... frizzy?!?!?! bw black stripe skirt dress f bw black stripe skirt dress e bw black stripe skirt dress i bw black stripe skirt dress h bw black stripe skirt dress g bw black stripe skirt dress c bw black stripe skirt dress j bw black stripe skirt dress k bw black stripe skirt dress b bw black stripe skirt dress l We got home in the afternoon and hunkered down for the night. Our friend came and stayed over, and I made beef bourguignon for us all. Warm and hearty was needed! I think the crow outside, calling to his crow friends in our tree, wanted to join us. We stayed up late drinking red wine and being nostalgic about all the grunge videos being played on Rage and staying close to the heater. A very good, cozy night in.

Your coat is wonderful too. I think you pulled off all the black outfits very well. I like black dresses now and again and this gave some ideas :)) Most run away from black, saying it's too dreary and boring, but I think your black outfits have proved them wrong, I enjoyed them. You look beautiful xx

Helen Mae said...

Oh wow!! That black dress is A-MA-ZING! What a gorgeous silhouette! It's still summer here in the US, but I'm really looking forward to wearing more cooler-weather outfits. I'm sure by now, you feel the opposite!

Crazy beautiful! The dress, the coat, the bag - and you in it obviously. We have a warm, humid high summer here (in Sweden) - and your pictures really make me long for autumn!

Aleksandra said...

I love your make-up, it looks like you're in technicolour! Not sure if that makes sense to anyone but me, but there's just something about all the muted red and orange that reminds me of 1940s films and posters. x

jennifer schmittlin said...

The coat is amazing, so are the dress and bag. You look wonderfully classy and beautiful in this outfit.
