When I put this dress on, I had planned to go all out pink and white matching. It was a bit much, though, even for me. So, I pushed myself to try to be a bit more imaginative and hey, there’s lots of accessories I have that I hardly ever or indeed have never worn, like that green headscarf that I bought thinking it was mint green and it turned up being a bit more neon than that (come to think of it, it was born to go with this skirt where the same thing happened)… And pink and green might just look good together…
But how do I make it look like the headscarf isn’t just something I threw on so I wasn’t in head to toe pink…? Ah yes, that necklace I made of my logo earlier this year! Wait a minute… pink and green… Yep, I’ve actually dressed like my blog’s colour-scheme. I am a walking, talking, advert for cici-marie.com. My own website may have subliminally brainwashed me.
I actually think this is a really cute look, though, once you get past the brazen self-promotion. This is another dress from Collectif’s Bright & Beautiful range and the fit isn’t quite as good through the shoulders as on my other dress (short girl problems), but the waist is spot on and it still looks good so I think I get away with it. It’s a really fun, floaty material that I’ve attempted to illustrate with some spinning shots below. Not always in focus kinds of attempted, but it’ll have to do (in case anyone needs reminding that B and I are amateur photographers!). I do wish it was a bit shorter on me, for that proper 60s mini look, but at least at this length I’m not going to flash anyone. It’s also lined, which does seem to help the skirt drape better. All-in-all, a comfy and cute summer dress that wouldn’t take up a lot of room in a summer holiday suitcase, so thumbs up for that.
