Mint + Neutrals

This is what I wore back stage for Rodarte last week…

Dress: Vintage. Good maxi dress choices here too. Coat: Zara (from a thrift shop). Found a similar here.  Brogues: Zara. Bag: Vintage Coach. Shades: Ray Ban

I wanted to be comfortable for the last shoot last week so wore this floor length vintage chiffon dress in mint.  It has double layers and I sort of floated around the hair and make up stations all morning with the flash of the metallic from the brogues when walking.  I had my hair in a top knot inside and let it down upon leaving the studio amongst the herd of gazelles (models) in post make up. They were leaving at the same time.

A few of the models complimented me on the frock “I love your dressssss” they purred each surrounded by a hive of buzzing assistants. It’s a bit like having some angelic creature smile at you for no apparent reason and you responding with a dear stuck in headlights look “um thanks” I muttered behind the Nikon.

I ended the afternoon at The Spotted Pig. Love that place.

ps. I just realized. I wore the same hat/shoe combo in this post.  Hmmmm.

pps. For those wanting to look at outfits only on the blog, I added an outfits tab at the top!

    Love this outfit… Head to toe. Mink green is so pretty, I can’t wait to style a shirt I got a few month back. It’s a little too cold still for the short sleeves.
