Frocks ‘n’ Frills

Frocks ‘n’ Frills

There’s a science to wearing your florals well.

Go to great lengths: Flaunt a floor-sweeping dress. Don’t do ordinary: Stand out from the crowd with dark, sultry florals instead of pinky girly roses.

Metallic threads give floral prints a rock ‘n’ roll edge. Scientifically proven to boost your party spirit.

A rare case where I vote for maximalism. Layer your jewelry to bring luxe to a bohemian outfit. Then use a bold, structured blazer to make a statement.

Match your metallics to your skin tone. Warmer complexions suit golds and rose golds, and for cooler ones try silvers, chromes and oil-slick hues.

Bend the Rules. Wellies with your frocks.

This is fashion anarchy -anything goes.

Don’t save your frocks for a special occasion. Don’t keep your jewelry in a jewelry box.



Don’t ignore the lacy / sparkly / backless sartorial wonder that lives into the back of your closet, it’s a waste of time don’t wait, do not hesitate tomorrow is promised to no one.

Life should be a source of experience to be lived up to,

same goes for our jewelry and our frocks…

    That’s a lovely dress and I like how you use different accessories to jazz it up even further. These are some great tips on how to choose floral prints especially for those who hesitate to. i like long flowing dress and skirts with many bright floral patterns in summer.

      Hey Kim! Thank you so much! I don’t usually do florals but when the right dress comes along…

    I love the colors in that dress and that it isn’t all bright and cheerful and girly. It definitely makes a statement. And great thoughts about every day being special enough to wear the dress and jewelry.

      Very glad you liked the concept Stephanie! And, yes, let’s all wear our fancy dresses and jewelry and run our errands!

    Love the look! I wish I could wear flowy things like this! Since I am short I need to keep the bold florals a solid color or I look like a clown!

      I feel the exact same way. with my red hair on top of that I think I can only get away with black and white. But when the right D&G dress comes along…

    I love the edgy take on florals! SO much better than pinks and frills.

      yes yes yes! It’s all about dark romance and sultry bold prints!

    Gorgeous dress! I love the idea of today being special enough to wear special clothing. So often I save my “nice” stuff so I rarely get to enjoy them.

      Posted at 11:20h, 23 July Reply

      Christa, I think today is a great day to change that 😉

    That dress is so pretty! I love how you paired it with Wellingtons, too. I bet a cowboy hat and a pair of cowboy boots (or even just the boots) would be even more stunning with it!
