That 70’s Floral Dress of My Dreams

 I’m in Dallas – but like you’ve seen so often before – let’s take a trip down memory lane, to Aussie Fashion Week.

Here we have an ensemble, again 70’s inspired, like everything I wore that week. I never thought of myself to much of a sucker for trends but for the 70’s – I just can’t resist! I think so many styles are quite flattering for my body type and I love a good bell sleeve. The scarf was a nice addition – but also a necessity because I couldn’t wear a bra and there was a risk that one of my boobs would pop out if I didn’t have some extra coverage.

I call it Boob Roulette! Fashion Week is the time to take risks with what we wear.

So anyway, I was lucky to wear this dress – a fun number from Alice McCall (see my photographs of the collection HERE) to the show. I always feel so much more confident when wearing a dress with a sleeve!floral-dress-brown-waist-belt-green-scarf-1

Apologies – I had tried to get a video happening yesterday but I wanted to include more footage so I’m still filming. Hopefully I had a chance to get it done tonight when I land in NYC. 🙂
