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.

TODAY IS SPECIAL ENOUGH

 

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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
