No, I’m NOT going to post about The Arcade again today.
But I AM going to post about some fabulous threads; in this case two dresses and a jacket.
First up is ONE BAD PIXEL’s beautiful new mesh dress release called simply ‘Jersey Tank Dress’. A bit of an understated title for a not-so understated frock. It’s available in a number of colours from the main store. I really like the way I look in this little number, and especially rate the fact that there’s a main colour contrasted by an offset complementary shade which makes for a very on trend style. Dressed up with heels and a smart jacket, or with a scarf, or under a coat or however you want to wear it the effect is the same. It’s simple and stylish and a very worthy addition to your wardrobe, especially in this ‘Biscuit’ combination. (Rest assured dear reader that your intrepid blogger licked it, expecting a digestive flavour, but I was sadly disappointed.)
Oh and while we’re on the subject of ONE BAD PIXEL I actually have cause for complaint. That name is a TOTAL misnomer, there isn’t a bad pixel for sale in that store at all, they’re all rather grand if you ask me.
My second Friday Frock is this lovely Plum number from MICHAMI.
I tend very much towards plain items and I’m NOT that adventurous when it comes to prints, preferring my outfit details (such as pattern and texture) to predominantly come from the accessories that I wear, so plain colours are always win for me. This MICHAMI ‘Kiia’ dress was therefore a must purchase because it’s my favourite plummy shade, but buyer beware, just because it’s a plain does NOT mean it’s boring. For one thing there is excellent creasing around the body of this dress. It gives this frock a great ‘worn’ feel. It also has stitched detailing to the waist that I can’t really describe effectively here, and you can’t see because I’m wearing a jacket, so you’ll need to go and see it in store.
BUT HURRY! The reason I discovered this glorious wee number is because MichaMi is closing, so there’s a 50% sale at the main store.
Like the One Bad Pixel number in my first pic, this will lend itself well to wearing in a multitude of styles. I think this one will get a lot of wear with leggings and boots actually, so I may have to invest in some other colours <Gulp>
I teamed both these dresses with this essential denim jacket from EMERY. For some mad bonkers Kitty-reason I missed this when it was available at Fameshed, but no matter because I soon located it in store and eagerly tried the demo on before purchase, making sure I was wearing blinkers so I didn’t look at anything else because that would be bad. (I’m trying to save all my lindens for that event I’m not talking about, remember?)This is a ruddy marvellous jacket and I’m really pleased with it. It just looks so realistic, proudly bearing authentic button and stitching patterns on the body that make it look like the quintessential classic denim jacket that everyone owns . And so should you.
Afterthought: Perhaps ‘Friday Frocks’ or ‘Frocking hell it’s Friday!’ should be a Kittywitchin’ thing? What do you think?
