autumn

Full moons and Mui Mui prints...

Friday, September 24, 2010

So although I am loving getting into my autumn wardrobe I am not loving the fact the days are getting shorter and the light is getting less and less.. with working full time during the week, soon
I will be limited to doing outfit posts only on the the weekends or occasionally an impromptu one on my way home from work..
These photos were taken at dusk just as the light faded which made the photos kinda grey..but hopefully they still look ok :)










Im sure alot of you have seen this dress on loads of blogs over the summer its the infamous Zara dress that looks just like the Mui Mui summer print. I had to buy this dress as soon as i saw it but it is a bit if a challenge to wear. The size Im apparently wearing is XS which is crazy cos its really big. Also the elastic it very low down on the hips so you cant pull it in at the waist with a waist belt.. Ive worn it here with an elasticated waist belt pushed down on my hips to try and pull it in and give it a bit more shape..



Mui Mui esque dress: Zara, Cardy: salt & pepper, Belt and bag: Primark, Ankle boots: Limited Edition M&S, Necklace: Topshop..


The light faded so fast that this photo only came out in black and white..

Im off now to enjoy the weekend! Hope everyone has a lovely weekend too! x

  1. oh the sunset looks beautiful! i recently took some of my outfit shots whilts the sun had just started to set, the light really does add something to the pictures. especially in yours, it gives them more of a vintage tint! i love your miu miu inspired dress, i wouldn't have a clue what to team it with myself, but they way you have mixed the blue with the brown accessories is lovely. xxx

  22. Love the print of the dress, Zara does some great catwalk inspired pieces. I'm sad to say goodbye to summer too, fashion week was unusually warm and lulled me into a false sense of security. Looking forward to layering different pieces though.

  27. Love the print on this dress, but can see how the dropped waist is awkward to style! The belt works so well. x
