After the cold depressing weather of the past months we had the first warm days of the year……woohoo! The standard ‘problem’ I’m having around this time of the year is….what to wear to work? I’m soo sick of jeans and my usual black tights seem too wintery. Bare legs isn’t an option at my job. But I think I’ve finally got a perfect solution (other than the usual boring business attire). It’s very simple: take a maxi dress, a pair of heels and a tiny blazer or jacket, belt optional)….done! And the good thing about maxi dresses is that they’re in every store at the moment (scored a perfect maxi dress at H&M) and vintage maxi dresses aren’t that hard to find. Some inspiration:
Maxi dress by Zara
New dress by ‘Ossie Clark’
More Ossie….drool. From the AW2009 collection.
Great shape, but wacko print….feathers….peppers…empty balloons??
Chloé, Ready to Wear SS2010. I sooo want this dress…..
Dreamy superromantic dress by Laura Ashley in the 70’s.
I’m getting more and more jealous of Lily Allen’s wardrobe. This dress is simply divine.
Another perfect vintage dress by Thea Porter.
