Looking sleek in an Asos dress, even on a rainy day

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Forever New satin vest (similar here)
Bettina Liano snake-skin belt (similar here)
Ebay Oxford shoes (similar here)

Hi all! Hope all is well. Thank you all for the sweetest comments! I'm slowly creeping my way into commenting back on your blogs, certainly lots of beautiful fashionistas out there :)

Even though we have reached Spring in Sydney, we seem to have been experienced some crappy weather, with lots of winds, rain and clouds. So I can't venture out as often as I like, I am sitting around in my room watching TV, cleaning the house and job hunting. I'm still looking for a job, but its definitely been hard - not much job availability and very competitive positions. 

Today though, I went out for dinner, so I'm wearing an Asos mesh panel dress, its very fitted and is a stone colour. I layered it with a silk sleeveless jacket. Great for the warmer weather, while still looking sleek. When I wear white or stone colours, I like to contrast it with black or dark ones, here I've worn a dark lipstick, and added some dramatic dark feather earrings.

It's always fun to wear certain style of dresses with your personal twist.
Have a happy hump day!

xx Natalie

P.S Loving these sunglasses!

Cool sunnies! And I know what you mean about contrasting light with dark-otherwise you could potentially look washed-out...but I LOVE those earrings!!
