Elegantly Waisted


For someone that never wore colour I've managed to gain quite a fondness for some of the brightest shades of the season.  I think I'm one of those people that will avoid a trend and then one day wake up and feel overcome with the need to give it a whirl.  My theory however is to do so slowly and in small doses (due to some tragic experimentation in high school..haha the evidence will never be revealed!).  I love the neon orange embellishment on this Magdalena Velevska dress, it's just the right amount of colour for me.  You can head on over to the Harpers Bazaar Style Network to see the rest of my look.
Hoping that you have a colourful weekend .... xx mandy

dress: Magdalena Velevska on behalf of Frockshop, neck piece: Sass & Bide, cuffs: ASOS

really love the whole concept of the neck piece acting almost like a substitute for a collar, looks really good and eccentric x

I feel you with that trend-thing, I'm not huge color-person neather, but one day I realized that I have to get mint chinos and neon orange (same color what's in the picture) bikini haha :--D

I think change is as good as a holiday. I'm someone who usually heads straight for the black, but with the seasons current trends I have not been able to help myself and have now delved into the world of color and love it!

Great post :)
