bang bang


thought i would open with the shoes. they are actually amazing. not only do they look incredible on, but they are surprisingly comfortable. i must admit, i wasn't totally convinced by the colour until i saw them in person. something not black and oxblood-ish, which i am totally into right now. alexander wang, i applaud you for creating awesome shoes. and secondly, many thanks must go to ebay for making it possible for me to own or even afford this pair of shoes.
 
dress: lonely hearts | necklace: sophie kyron | bag: antik batik (similar) | shoes: alexander wang | watch: vintage cartier | wrist: vintage georg jensen, cartier | rings: cartier, sportsgirl

we attended a wedding on the weekend. being the middle of winter, i struggled to come up with an appropriate outfit. when i think wedding, i immediately think: colour. but being winter, that rules out a lot of options. don't you think it looks weird to wear a pretty, floral, strapless dress in the middle of winter? and then put a big black coat over it? or freeze to death...


so, my considerations for picking a winter wedding outfit were:
1. what are more wintery colours? (i never wear black or white to a wedding except for a formal reception)
2. what will go with black (maybe grey) stockings? (nude stockings weird me out too much)
3. what looks ok with a jacket/cardi/coat over it?
4. what jacket/cardi/coat can i wear that isn't black?

anyway, i ended up with this lonely hearts dress. it has (sheer) sleeves and is in a great oxblood colour (ok, completely obsessed), which i think is quite wintery. the day ended up being so perfect and warm that i didn't even need stockings or outerwear.
