forward thinking

Yellow dress: Forever 21. Off the shoulder dress: Victoria Secret. Belt (vintage)
It feels like -15 degrees outside but my mind is ONLY on Spring. Took these cell pics of two cheap finds (sorry for the quality).
Saw this yellow Forever21 dress and was drawn to the print, colour and cut. It has deep front pockets and a tulip skirt shape. Perfect with ankle boots.
Thanks to Refinery29’s post here recently on long maxi dresses (my winter uniform), I loved the off the shoulder one they showed from Victoria’s Secret. It’s now on sale here so I got one. (Can’t believe it was over $100). I sized up and got the medium. The baggier – the better.

    Perfect dresses. If only I wasn’t on a shopping ban I would head out to Forever and try to find some too.

  2. Toni says:

    And I have to add, you are inspiring me to layer my maxi dresses in the winter time. Thanks so much!

    Oh I looove that yellow floral dress! The floral is like a vintage Nanna couch, in the best possible way! It reminds me of my Nan’s – hers is just like it but in a turquoisey colour 🙂 I so wish we had Forever 21, I always see their stuff on blogs and I like it all!

    I bought some floral print silk trousers the other day. I so want to wear them but it’s too bloody cold. Never mind.
    And I’m super glad that African prints are coming back (thanks Givenchy et al) means I can wear two maxidresses I acquired via Asos and vintage over the summer.
