Silk dress

Hi ! Don't I look like a 80s soap opera actress in this outfit? As soon as I saw myself in the mirror, the theme song from The young and the restless played in my head. Speaking of The young and the restless, is that soap opera still airing? I wasn't even born when the first episode aired and it's still going strong. I have a feeling that the show will go on even if humans become extinct. There will be cockroaches on set ready to act.

Ok, all jokes aside now, I am absolutely in love with this amazing red, silk, vintage dress ! I am so lucky to have this little treasure in my closet. The green earrings are just as fabulous as the dress, they are also vintage. 
I found both of these items at an Etsy Shop, called Love Charles 

Good thing I stumbled upon this online store at Mode Republic, all of the clothes there are amazing and affordable. If you are looking for unique pieces, I highly recommend you this Etsy Shop  
In other news, I was tagged by one of my favorite Canadian bloggers, Julie from Pop champagne 
to make a list of my 8 most worn items. So, here we go !

1) Most worn lip gloss/ lipstick?
Astor Prism Effect
2) Most worn earrings
I don't usually wear earrings, but I think the most worn pair was from Accessorize.

3) Most worn top/ shirt
My acid-wash denim shirt from Vero Moda.
4) Most worn nail polish
Rimmel London, I ♥ Lasting finish, Azure
5) Most worn shoes
My high top, pink sneakers from Skechers.
6) Most worn necklace
A turquoise, statement necklace from Accessorize.
7) Most worn perfume/lotion
Versace Woman. I just love the bottle, it has a very cute design.
8) Most worn handbag/purse
A cross body, purple bag from Accessorize.

I can definitely hear the theme from The Young and the Restless playing when I see this dress, but only in the best possible way- it is a stunner. It's very similar to something my mom owned when I was little, that I thought was the most glamourous dress in the whole world. Still kind of do, to be honest :) I love that you paired it with green earrings and turquoise heels- you have such a talent for playing with colour, and the results are really striking!

In old times the silk dress were in latest trends such that many people formed that type of dress material and only make many new decorative things with those silk material. All the outfits which are made with these looks very beautiful.

Pop Champagne said...

that's a statement dress! and your high tops, yeah you do post about them all the time! or maybe I'm just in love with them that I always notice you in those cute shoes, either way they're awesome :D

herenownotforever said...

Are you a model??? great photos!

Faboulista said...

remember when i last told u that your style is changing into a sophistacted young lady? well i'm glad to see that it wasnt a one of time. this dress proves that this style is here to stay and i personally love it on u. its not to say that quarkiness is wrong but sophistication when mastered from a young age can cary one through the years even when our beauty and youth fades.
