Cream and Crochet

September 24, 2011
This is what I wore to the students orientation at SoFA. I’ve had this dress for quite some time now and I’ve been dying to wear it, I know. I know. To a student orientation? Well, I knew I was gonna take look shots so heck, I went for it! Just don’t be surprised if I wear this again, haha! This is an awesome dress, I love it to bits. Want to know another reason why I love it? Well, two very fashionable gals have the same dress! Both Florence “Flee” Brudenell – Bruce (Prince Harry’s ex) and Alexa Chung have been spotted sporting the same dress, I then took my outfit inspiration from them.

What inspiration did I get from these two looks? Well, for one, I wore this dress with flats (ballet flats to the orientataion then to plimsolls to a snack with my sister, Pammy) and I also wore a tiny little bag. I’m no fashion icon like them but wow, the rocked the dress and I hope I did the same *crosses fingers* let me know what you think, yeah?

| Dress: Topshop | Bag: Lanvin | Ballet Flats: Michael Kors | Plimsolls: H&M | Rings: Butingtings (Key) and Ingrid (Scorpion) | Watch: Jeremy Scott x Swatch |

After my orientation, my sister Pam and I decided to have a snack over at a fam bam fave, Bar Dolci. I decided to go for something a bit more dressed down and comfy so a few seconds before we left I decided to swap soles and go for these instead.

So, which look do you fancy more? Ballet flats or some kicks? Speak up, I don’t bite, haha! xx

    I think the dress with the plimsolls is better! You look good either way though! 😉

    It’s so hard to choose you look good in both! But for me it’s ballet flats! You look London-ish again 🙂 You deserve to live there 😉

      Thanks for the comment! 🙂

    I go for plimsolls! They evoke that laidback, beach-y feel when paired with the dress. 🙂

    (so, what’s winning? plimsolls or flats? :P)

    **BTW, i think my other comment did not get published so I’m posting my comment again, but if it did, then disregard! hahahha

      So far it’s a mix but either way both win for me 😉

    with the white shoes you remind me of kelly from saved by the bell (of course, a good thing). i think they look really cute and “effortless” with the daisies in the dress 🙂
