frock swap | gettin' shirty




shirt : rachel's c/o george | dress c/o wal g | bag : asos | shoes c/o clarks

thankfully i changed these shoes before actually heading out on sunday, as i was cautious enough to bother to check the weather and discover it was bucketing down; i had an outdoor walk ahead of me, and these leather lovelies would have been ruined in an instant. i wore (most of) this outfit to the cinema on sunday; albeit with a hundred more layers over the top and a hooded coat to combat the monsoon outside.

as if i don't have enough lace in my wardrobe already - or pink dresses for that matter, when this lacy number dropped through the post from wal g last week, i maybe did a little wee of excitement. it's such a pretty shade of pink, and it has these perfect little capped sleeves - something that i rely on more and more to cover my pasty bingo wings these days. it's ever-so-slightly longer than most of the dresses in my wardrobe, and it is bloody lined! it's like a bloomin' dream come true. my only gripe with it, is that it's got this suuuuper low cut back, which means that my bra is totally visible if no cardi/jacket/whatever is worn with it. which is a shame, because it looks adorable without another layer.

on sunday though, i decided to give rachel's floral blouse a whirl; first opting to layer it underneath similar to how debbie and donna styled it themselves, but then opted to go with  a very 'typical erica' solution; tied at the waist. presto! the clash of bold print with the pastel pink (and added cutie pie scalloped bag!) are just too twee for words. this shirt is lush... not sure if rach will be getting it back anytime soon...



so, what do we think; who wore it best?

  2. I love that you girls are swapping! We have so much fun doing it for Flock Together, so it's great to see other people doing it too! If only it wasn't so expensive to ship overseas so we could add you guys too. You all should totally start a UK version of a swap blog! (Unless you did already and I'm missing something?) This top looks wonderful on you, and I'm in love with the shoes and bag. And skirt. So basically all of it.

  3. I'm about to majorly overuse the word "love" .. ready?!! OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVVVVVVVVVVVVE the shirt, it's gorgeous! I need to get myself to George!
    Talking of footwear I always find myself struggling to know what to put on my feet in the Summer. You know those Spring/Summer days when it's slightly warmer but the ground is wet or it's chucking it down. What the hell are you supposed to put on your feet? Winter I just rely on boots, but that doesn't really work in the warmer weather!
    Hope you had a great Easter

  4. I know what you mean; I live in cheap flats or rubber shoes in the summer because of that reason. you can't chance nice leather shoes unless you're SURE there's no chance of rain. get some nice lace ups, and you're set! <3

  5. you guys actually inspired us to get the ball rolling on the swap front - so thank you ladies so much!! we considered a swapping blog, but wanted to make sure it would be successful, so thought we'd share on our own blogs first. all things considered, I think a swap blog is the natural next step... we would LOVE to be able to swap with you girls too, but postage is bad enough INSIDE the UK, let alone outside! one day, huh! thanks so much for stopping by xxx

  15. So pretty doll, love lace as well. You could get a bra with no straps or those see through straps, so you can wear the dress with no cardi. I have some like that & had to get some new bras to go with them (least I got to shop, ha) Sick of rain, can't wait for some permanent sunshine for a bit!! I think you wore it best - more colour and happiness to it!! You get my vote!! xx

  18. This floral blouse is so pretty! I love the way you styled it over that lace dress. The two patterns look great together.
