Dresses – from Iconic

I came across four dresses that i like this week in Iconic ad decided that i should share them here.  The first is a gorgeous coral red lace dress – Jeanne Ruffle Hem Lace Midi Dress by A&H.  The V-neckline and frill hemline give the piece a sensational silhouette and at just $129.95 it is a bargain.
Next is the Harmony Lace Dress by Bardot which is an eye catching piece in floral lace accompanied by an embroidered lace contrast. It goes well with nude stilettos and at a sale price of just $139.98 is another bargain.
Also in pale pink tones is the Natalie Off Shoulder Dress from Forever NewAn off-the-shoulder neckline and relaxed fit make this dress your casually cool weekend update. Style with wedges and a casual clutch for the perfect brunch to dinner look. At a price of just $89.99 this is too hard to miss.
 Finally, not in a colour i would normally go for, the Avalon Off-the-Shoulder Dress by Minkpink is a terrific style and also a bargain at just $89.95.  This flowing mini is adorned with a vibrant tropical green print and finished with flounce detailing for a playful twist. Team with tan slides for an effortless weekend ensemble.

Over the knee boots – seasons changing

Yes, it is that time of the year when in the northern hemisphere the onst of cold weather means that boots will start to be worn.  What excites me about this year is that many of the boots will be “over the knee” and many of the fashion pages are already subscrbing to this and publishing their ideas on what constitutes a great pair of “over the knee boots”.
First off the rank for me these last few weeks was “Extra Petite” – a blog that is for all fashion not just boots.  While promoting a small carryall tote and a travel wallet, the post also shows Stuart Weitzman boots which are the reason i became interested.

Shoes Post – this week

Shoes Post sent out an article to its members this week and its contents were such that i thought i just had to share it here.  I like so many of these styles and would most definitely be happy to be seen out and about in them.  The prices range from very high ($2219) down to cheap ($56) with the majority somewhere in the high hundreds.  Heel height varies from one pair that are flat up to several pairs that are very high stilettos and there are a few platfrom soled pairs also.  Certainly enough here for everyone to find a pair that they like.

HOW TO USE COLOUR TO COMMUNICATE YOUR AUTHORITY OR APPROACHABILITY

The use of colour is something i am learning and it is very important to know when dressing just what character you are trying to represent, someone in authority, someone approachable, someone formal, someone friendly or whatever.  Imogen Lamport covers aspects of the use of colour in her blog “Inside Out Style” and i thougt i would draw attention to some of er ideas here.

THE UNEXPECTED WAY TO STYLE OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

I love over the knee boots and would typically wear them with a very short skirt or shorts.  However, Chriselle has different ideas and styles the boots with a midi-skirt, a top, a jacket, a handbag and sunglasses.
Top: Theory; Skirt: Tibi (Similar Here); Boots: Chanel (Similar Here); Jacket: Coach; Sunnies: Rayban; Bag: Roger Vivier
I think the look is terrific.  Not ony do i lke the boots but the midi-skirt, blouse and jacket compliment one another well and the handbag is just gorgeous.
