FANCY PANTS [SUMMER DRESS IN WINTER]


No Fancy Pants for two weeks. TWO WEEKS.

Shocking. Mostly because I've been very rarely fancy (thanks to our kitchen renovation) and on the rare occasion I did dress up, there wasn't time to pull out the ironing board. Not to iron. Goodness, no. For the 'photo shoot'. Because I still haven't purchased that tripod I promised myself so very long ago.

Turns out I decided that a dishwasher was far more important than my tripod. (For now, anyway. )


So, instead of leaving you the image of me dragging out my ironing board to our backyard in my heels, let me tell you about this sleeveless dress. My husband's best friend got married two years ago and I bought this dress for his Big Day. It was originally $280, and was on sale by the time I found it. On that particular day, Myer had a half price sale on top of the first discount. By the time I added a Myer gift voucher to it, the dress cost me $40. Gotta love a bargain!

And although it's almost the end of winter, I've only just discovered that this summery little number could have been worn quite warmly all winter. It's made me re-shop my wardrobe all over again.


And see these heels? I had mentioned some time back that they were unfit for wearing. But after an attempt to pass them onto my stylish fairy step daughter, she suggested that I have them stretched. So I did. And gone are the days where I wince when I wear them. I do admit they're still not a heel I could wear all day, but still, at least they're wearable!

So, if you're dying to link up... here's your chance! (Because who knows if I can ever be seen to be reliable ever again!)


Did you get a chance to snap a fancy pants shot this weekend?
