Today I've got an extremely colourful outfit to show you; in fact it's pretty hard to think of a colour which doesn't appear in these pictures. I love this skirt so much. I've tried to show it on my blog many times before but the photos never turned out very well for a variety of reasons. I'm happy to can finally display my rainbow polka dot skirt. It's my ultimate dream skirt. I was very excited when I found it in Dangerfield last year. It instantly brightens up the day. I definitely believe there should be more rainbow clothes around; whenever I see rainbow pieces I pretty much always buy them! I also wanted to show you my new coat which I received during the week courtesy of OASAP. I am so happy with it, it's absolutely perfect. I wasn't sure what to expect with this coat and I knew I was taking a risk when I ordered it. It's so often difficult to tell the quality of coats when purchasing them online and it frustrates me when stores attempt to pass off long shirt style pieces in light weight materials as coats. However, this wasn't the case with my OASAP coat at all. It is of excellent quality and is beautifully warm. I love the style. The cobalt blue with the yellow accents is so lovely and I especially adore how the back of the collar is yellow. I'm particularly pleased with the structure of this jacket. I usually don't wear blazer style jackets because they look bulky on me; that's why I always opt for cardigans instead. This one works because the length  streamlines the blazer style which makes it an amazing coat.  I'll definitely get so much use out of my new coat and it's quickly become one of my favourites pieces. Thanks OASAP! In other news I have finally fulfilled my desire to own a yellow bag by sneaking in a little purchase recently. There are some lovely yellow bags in Guess and it was even better when this one, which I've had my eye on for months, was half price. I love the detailing, the shape and the bold tone. It makes a fabulous and happy addition to so many outfits. This skirt is very versatile and I often style it with pink but I went with red this time because I wanted to wear this particular top from Alannah Hill. I adore the heart detailing; it's such a sweet and adorable detail. It's amazing how much this little addition adds to a whole look. It's such a fun little top to wear. I love how this look features all three primary colours. 

I must say I'm absolutely shocked and devastated by the news of Australian television personality Charlotte Dawson who was found dead in her Sydney apartment this morning. It's hard to believe that the bold, confident and tough character we saw on Australia's top model was actually very vulnerable and suffered a long battle with depression. We never really know what goes on in anyone else's mind. This struck a chord with me because I know what it's like to feel hopeless and to fight personal demons every day; it's tough and requires enormous strength. I just wish, beyond what words could explain, that she could have found the power and strength to go on.  I know so many people admired her and it is such a tragedy the way the events unfolded. RIP Charlotte. Never forgotten. Let's all be kind and support each other.

I LOVE this outfit! That skirt is simply amazing. I too LOVE wearing bright colours/rainbows!



Jackie Harrison said...

You look so pretty and yes it sad about the model we never know how depress and unhappy a person could be.

Janet Taylor said...

Cute top!

Panty Buns said...

I wasn't familiar with Australian television personality Charlotte Dawson but the news of her passing is very sad. I can only hope they'll do a few pieces on how people can cope with their depression.
You styled your Dangerfield rainbow polka dot skirt beautifully in this outfit! Utilising all three primary colours to complement all the colours in your skirt yielded a very pleasing result. Your Contrast Paneled blue OASAP coat with yellow trim, red Alannah Hill heart detailed red Set the Date top and Dangerfield rainbow polka dot skirt all look wonderful together.


Sam said...

Thats such sad news to hear, about a celebrity or anyone else. I hope more awareness will be created after this. Love your beautiful swirl of colour in this very vibrant outfit.

Love this look!!

Launna said...

I love the red shirt with the heart in the front... very pretty... and the pairing of the blue coat looks so great with it :)

Launna said...

Imogen ... I wanted this to be separate from the other comment... it is terribly sad that so many people suffer from depression and feel hopeless... I have been there and trying to hold on isn't always easy, I always ask for help from anyone and everyone. I wish other people could understand that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel...

Naaj Rona said...

It is difficult to know the quality when we are buying online. I struggle a lot when it comes to coats and shoes.

I love your coat, the collar and the pop of neon is just amazing and goes so well with your rainbow skirt and the heart top. Please can I raid your wardrobe please.

That skirt is magnificent! And the blazer was made to be paired with it. Glad you finally got a yellow bag...I haven't started this year's hunt yet! Ha!

Sophie Sierra said...

Very sad news, and your words are so touching and well written. You should be so proud of yourself; what a strong, brave and inspirational girl you are and with such a kind heart too. If you ever need me please remember I'm only an email away <3 xox

This skirt is really nice and the greatest value is that it can be matched with any color! Gives you a lot.
Even people who seemingly have everything in life can actually hide inside when insecurities and unexpected moods shocking. Who does not live personalmete these situations can only imagine how tough it can be.
But in life, happiness is always around the corner and a smile can give the unexpected joy that we needed at that time.

Maddie said...

I can totally understand why this skirt uplifts your mood, because it would surely lift my mood if I would be wearing it as well! :) I really love the fact that it is so colorful and I must say it is very you! :)
The coat looks great- the color combination is very unusual, therefore it works so well!

I agree that these news are really heartbreaking, I watched that show and this really took me by surprise! So sad!

This is such a delightfully colorful outfit! I'm absolutely in love with your multi-colored polka dot skirt. If I saw something like that I would snatch it up! It probably goes with everything! I also really like your new blazer. Everyone can pull off blazers and this one is such a great color and unique with the yellow accents.
