This was probably one of my most eclectic colour combinations to date: peach, midnight blue, burgundy and tan. But I do like them together! I have worn this (old) Karen Millen dress a few times on the blog now: here, here, here and here, so although it was quite expensive at the time, the cost-per-wear would work out to be pretty cheap as I wear it regularly. I tend to think that I’m just wearing a plain blue dress – I forget how pretty all the stitching and embroidery on it is (it shows up beautifully in photos).
The boots are exceptionally old – in fact I hadn’t actually worn them for years and years. The heels needed redoing which I finally got round to doing (they had completely fallen off so a little metal spike was sticking out the bottom of both), and I’m going to do a mini DIY on them just to spruce them up a bit. They’d been languishing at the back of the wardrobe in the spare room, so I’d totally forgotten I had them. They have a bit of a Sixties shape to them and they fit like a dream, so I think they’re worth a makeover…!
This Friday I’ll be posting Part 3 of my Give Your Blog A DIY Design Makeover series, so look out for that. And I’ll be hosting a giveaway next week for some great shopping vouchers – it’s all happening here at NDAL HQ! 😉
