Wind in the Willow...

Wore this Saturday night to a cocktail bar for a friend's farewell with my Chloe lambskin bracelet bag (not pictured)




Willow EDG64 yellow silk draped dress (sorry the pic's no good, it was a bit dark when I took it - closer/better pic from a while ago here, or on the model - doing it better justice than I)
Dior Extreme Python Shoes (couldn't keep my eyes off of these whenever SJP appeared in them in the Sex and the City movie)

  1. I love that Willow dress. I nearly bought a similar one. Those silver toggle buttons are so lovely.

  4. Lily - Aren't those buttons too cute? That's why I had to include a close-up. I also have this dress in the sleeveless style in a taupe-ish colour, loved that Willow collection :)

    Tina - Aw, thank you so much! Have added you (and love your blog!)

    diamondsinchampagne - Thank you so much!

  7. ooooooooooh those shoes!!!!

  8. that is such a stunning colour on you! wow! and those heels look killer. i have the rip off version and i find them really hard to walk in, even though i dont really have trouble with heels, mostly because of the lack of ankle support. do you have any problems with them?

    also... yeah *grins sheepishly* the dries love was pretty rampant today.. gotta try and hold it back. seriously though... WOW... and they stock him at Belinda? THis is so exciting!!!

  45. Oh gosh how you must have laughed at my ASOS versions of these shoes! I had no idea that they were a rip off of a Dior shoe, not being a SATC fan, then after the film came out I read about the real ones and was pretty mortified!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, I think this is my favourite outfit of you. The sleeves of the dress, the color, the shoes. Love it. And I could see Carrie wear it ;)

  60. your shoes are amazing , love your blog .

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh my! I just realised I never got to say thanks to everyone for your incredibly lovely comments!

    hrose - in answer to your Q, these shoes are remarkably comfy due to the hidden platform in front, and the foot being well-strapped in (and I don't usually last too long in high heels, these are great!)

    Queen Michelle - no way! And you needn't have been mortified at all! ;)
