Dress - Selfmade
Suede shoes - Bianco
Suede belt - Cut from a longer old one, old
Bag - Thrifted (I love it, it has a golden tag that says "lady" in the front :)

I went out a lot last week. On the edge of being a bit too much actually. But I finnished some works of mine and had a week off at the other job I'm doing and I got quite a nice paycheck so I definitely earned some fun! On Friday I was wearing what I refer to as my lucky dress, and it worked well, as always!

(...I'd lie if I'd say I dressed up with Basset's Allsorts on my mind, but the combination of black and yellow always does make me think of liquorice. That, and bees. And I'd rahter be dressing inspired of candy than insects :)

(pssst. Liquorice photo borrowed from here.)

Dresses with dots are hot I'd say. When I was celebrating my collegues doctor's degree last week, there were at least four of us with dotted dresses (maybe doesn't sound so funny, but they were really different from each others, so it didn't bother me too much). And I liked my Vivien of Holloway best, of course... =)

I must say that you inspire me. You inspired me to make my gray day colourful. I had to dress on my favourite dress, favourite high-heeled shoes and lipstick - something that I haven't wore in months.

Thank you, love. You are lovely!

Really gorgeous. I like the touches of that rich, yellow throughout. That is a color I want more of in my wardrobe.
