I don’t know where to start with this post. I had to drag myself outside for the photos, never in a million years would you normally catch me in anything a)so short b)strapless and c)patterned. The purpose of this post however is twofold. Firstly to demonstrate the eye catching power of colour (I wear so much black, I often forget) and secondly to showcase a few of the many multicoloured frocks around at the moment. This evening I have been dazzled by many styles on Net-a-porter.
I’m aware that these patterns dresses are a marked contrast to the minimalism that defines a lot of the Autumn / Winter collections at the moment. I like the long sleeved and short multi-coloured dresses, I try and imagine them in the winter with some thick black tights underneath, their colours shouting loudly across the wintry sky… a long sleeved/short dress is next on my “to buy” list*.
Leaving aside the small matter of this dress being for a woman half my age, I’ll refer you, blog reader, to one issue this post had in mind. The issue of multicolour. I actually quite liked the colours of this dress, and felt quite bold and confident wearing it. So it is certain. We may not be able to wear this dress in public, but we CAN wear multi-colour.
Wearing: Dress and shoes from Ebay.

*It is a long list. It might take some time.
