Le Blog de Sushi: Hearts & shades of grey

Thursday, July 15, 2010

{ Hearts & shades of grey }

I managed to take these photos just in time yesterday; as soon as I went inside it started pouring. I do mostly prefer the cooler weather but am starting to look forward to warm spring days and wearing pastels, pastels and more pastels.

At the moment I'm making do with layering neutral colours. Speaking of which, this gorgeous grey chiffon dress was sent to me by Button N Thread Boutique, a sparkly new sponsor of Le Blog de Sushi. I really love the extra detail it brings to an outfit with the the pleats and alternating metal/fabric strands on the front. Button N Thread offer world-wide shipping and their great range of pretty clothing and accessories are all under AUD $45.00!

The ankle boots are a vintage find from eBay. I was excited when I saw they had a low heel but where still cute because I have to walk everywhere here. Unfortunately, I fell into the trap of thinking lower heel equals more comfort, when actually I would be better off wearing my 4" Chloe booties than these. Oh well, they probably just need some wearing in.

Nice coat!

The boots are cute but I can imagine they might be uncomfortable. There seems to be quite a strange angle on the heel. Still, a stellar outfit!

cute find! Yeah sometimes it takes a little wearing in of lower heeled boots, although I generally go with the theory that they are more comfortable. Perhaps you lucked out?

You could try taking them to a shoe repairer to get the leather stretched

Adore the neckline detail on your frock as well as the diamond accents on your stockings! Congratulations on the new sponsor, and I hope those darling vintage boots start to become more comfortable with wear. It's horrible when cute shoes are nearly impossible to walk in.

I adore your short sleeved coat. I'm always wary of coats without full length sleeves because I'm never quite sure how to wear them. I apparently missed the day of school when they taught layering! I'm here in the dog days of summer, but this outfit is really making me ache for fall so I can try my hand at layering (read: blatantly attempt to copy this look! Hey, it's just that good! )
