This is my favourite and most worn dress at the moment; it's the High Socie-tea Dress in Macaron which I showed you in my recent haul posted here. I'm so pleased to finally own this dress after admiring it for so many months. I can't believe it came on sale for only $38 in the Modcloth 70% sale; no wonder it has completely sold out. I know a number of bloggers who own this dress and I adore how it makes me feel even more a part of this wonderful community. I love the pattern and the beautiful rainbow design. It means I could pair it with pretty much any of my cardigans; there can never be too much colour. I'm not too sure why I went for a red cardigan this time given that red isn't exactly the predominant shade in the dress. I like how the red makes such a statement but I hope it doesn't dominate or cover up the pattern too much.  In the summer time I'd like to wear it without a cardigan and with just my yellow heels. This dress is by Bea and Dot which is definitely my favourite brand sold on Modcloth; I always keep an eye out for their pieces. It has the sweetest and most unique prints. I also love the quality and this dress is no exception; I'm always very pleased when a dress is fully lined. The only issue I had was the length. This is supposed to be more of a midi length but I've said a couple of times now that such design just doesn't suit me. I got the dress hemmed but it came up still much longer than I expected. It's definitely the longest dress I own. I was thinking of getting it adjusted again but actually I don't mind the slightly longer length; making it too short would detract from the shape. I've also been using my fan clutch bag from Forever New. I've had it for two years but probably haven't used it since at least last year; I always forget I have it. Don't you just love rediscovering old favourites?

Pairing a pastel dress with rich red accents is such an original solution and it works really well!

I like the colour combination and contrast between the pretty mix of pastels in the print on your High Socie-tea Dress and the bright red of your Alannah Hill You Gossip Cardigan. You have an excellent eye for colour and coordinated your clutch and shoes beautifully with your dress and cardigan. Since it's hot and Summer here in the U.S. I'd imagine it's Winter and cold there, so I'm glad your dress is lined. I'm surprised that there's so much green foliage where you took your outfit photos. There's much less green here in Winter.

I did a new post but don't expect people to read it all before commenting because it contains a horrendously long rant.
