Outfit

Finally, after a lengthy search, I have found myself a galaxy dress. I’m very late in catching on to the galaxy trend; I have always loved the concept of galaxy but it was a matter of finding the right piece. This dress is from Modcloth and I purchased it in the recent sale along with a few other dresses and skirts which I look forward to showing you. There are many different variations on the galaxy theme but it is the colour mix I like about this particular dress. It’s also very versatile and well suited to my wardrobe. I have lots of pink and in the last year I’ve acquired a number of turquoise and duck egg blue pieces from Alannah Hill. After wearing the dress a couple of times with my pink cardigan I thought it would be fun to pick up the darker background colour and switch to a navy blue cardigan. I liked the way it turned out. My turquoise ‘Hold Me Down’ bag from Alannah Hill was too much of a perfect match not to pair with my galaxy dress. I went for silver heels since metallic/silver reminds me of outer space! Speaking of galaxy print, I ended up purchasing the ‘When the Planets A-Dine’ Plate Set from Modcloth which I posted in my wishlist here. I’m so happy with my galaxy plates and love the way they look in the house. As it says on the box “put a new spin on dinner” and “make every meal out of this world.”

I already said I love silver heels, but I will repeat it...because I do agree with you that they're a wonderful choice for this look and they look great with galaxy print.

I love how you're always true to your style...even when you try a modern print or trend, it's still very you...and looks very feminine, stylish, vintage inspired....

The dress is really pretty, I liked the galaxy prints as well, but not really on me, so I stayed being an observer. =D The plates' taglines are awesome, though I suppose the theme is easy to play with. :)

Maria said...

I've loved seeing graphic skirts like this on others, but have been super on the fence about getting one for myself. It looks gorgeous on you though! And I love your bun :) Thanks for linking up with us!
