|Cheap blue jersey dress - gone!|
The fabric was just too cheap, and was showing signs of wear after being washed only a few times. As a replacement I bought this (judging by the price) more durable dress:
|Another Country Casual dress|
The cut is similar to my favorite maxi dress from the same brand, and the fabric is viscose. This I how it looks on me:
|Today worn with boots|
My best friend and I were going to Copenhagen today, visiting a few nice shops.... Although I've reached the age of hot flushes I couldn't go without a jacket - and a bag!
|Matching too well?|
Next time it could be fun to wear the dress with magenta tights and black shoes, or black tights and blue heeled shoes. I'm trying hard to justify the purchase here - and spending most of this month's restricted budget on one item.
The mix of blue colours can be worn in all seasons, and with short sleeves I can add cardigans for warmth in cold seasons, or go without in summer. It's really such a versatile piece, right?
|Red rings are missing here...|
I even looked alright from the back too!

Yesterday was a whole different story! I wore old favorites - the red top and the vintage jacket, with the burgundy skirt:
|Flexing my remixing muscle|
It looks odd with top hanging so low - but that's not how it looked in the morning. And I have proof! I took some early photos - with some setting error, but you can still see how the top sits where it's supposed to!
|The top looks alright here|
The top is obviously also made from a cheap fabric, like the blue dress. Now who would have guessed that they're from the same brand?
On Sunday my cousin's daughter is being christened and I have another Country Casual dress lined up. It's been waiting in my closet since February, for the right occasion! Now all I've left to do is to decide if I should wear it with my new gold heeled leopard print shoes, my silver shoes, or the above black lace up boots!
See you all on Sunday? Have a great weekend!
