Outfit

For so many years I've wanted a sailor dress; it was that one piece I desperately wanted to add to my collection of dresses but simply could not find. That is until, earlier in the year, I spotted this adorable sweet sailor dress in Dangerfield. Trust Dangerfield to have that fun and quirky little dress I was looking for. I can't begin to explain my excitment when I saw this dress and instantly, I knew it had to come home with me. It was everything I'd been searching for; I've always prefered sailor dresses in navy blue with red and white accessories. I love the little tie bow, the white detailing and the collar. Since I purchased it in the colder weather, this weekend was the first time I had the chance to wear it! That was a lovely addition to my weekend. My polka dot heels which I posted here, seemed like the obvious choice to pair with my sailor dress. As much as I adore these fabulous shoes, initially I wasn't sure how about their versatility. However, I couldn't have been more wrong. The myriad of dresses I've found to pair with these shoes has been incredible! I love them with my sailor dress to introduce some pattern and another dimension to the look. A red hair accessory was a clear addition to this outfit. I've had this bag for a number of years and I totally forgot I even owned it. It was such a surprise when I found it the other day; I don't have any other bags this colour so that makes it an even better. Isn't it just the best when you rediscover items that you havent worn/used in an extremely long time? I remember how much I loved this bag a couple of years ago and I waited until it was on sale and brought it for the bargain price of $5. I love the quilted design too. 
Sailor Moon Inspired Outfit
 I'm sure it comes as no surprise that my outfit is inspired by Sailor Moon. A number of months ago I posted a nautical outfit here, which attracted many comments on its similarity with Sailor Moon; I hadn't even thought of Sailor Moon when I put that outfit together but definitely saw it as a compliment. This time, I most certainly created the look with Sailor Moon in mind. I, along with my sister and my cousin, was a huge fan; it was my favourite show at one point. I thought about the key elements which would make an outfit sailor moon inspired - a sailor dress, nautical colour scheme, sailor collar, red hair accessories and red and white shoes. This is how my outfit came together. As you may already know, I enjoy dressing up in character inspired outfits. You can see my Snow White inspired look here.

So cute, you could totally be one of the Sailor Moon characters! I love how the accessories match the dress so well, yet they're not very nautical, so the whole outfit looks like marine-inspired, but not like a costume.
