Frocktober Day 15 | Hairbow Week


Frocktober Day 15 heralds the start of Hairbow Week.  I’m planning to wear a coordinating hairbow with every frock for the next week.  I liked the idea of having a week of not planning which frock in advance, but merely picking one that appealed to me on that day.  Plus … hairbows!

The lovely dress I’m wearing today was very kindly donated by Fashionista Depot.  I am one of their biggest fans.  The warehouse sale that comes to you with up to 80% off RRP?  Yes please!

I had great fun scrolling through Fashionista Depot’s online store, checking out all the frocks.  Everything from Firefly cotton kaftans to Studibaker ballgowns.  The Welshman assisted with this process.  I selected the Barkins Belted Ponte Dress in Dark Navy because it evoked simple chic elegance, yet would be easy and comfortable to wear.  Plus, I just loved that the belt was black – navy and black is one of my favourite colour combinations.  We love smashing the fashion rules around here!

The Welshman gave it a thumbs up because he thought it would be flattering and also because I didn’t really have a dress like this in my wardrobe.

My initial reaction was bang on – this dress is extremely flattering and comfortable.  It has lovely little details like gathers on the top of the bodice, the contrasting belt and the little cap sleeves, not to mention the fact that it has pockets.

I’m keeping it tonal today with a pair of midnight footless opaque tights – I think of midnight as the descriptive term to describe a colour that isn’t quite blue yet not purple either.  It’s really quite a lovely day, but the dress is a little bit short and I’m a little bit old.  I’m continuing the theme with Mox flats in Blueberry and a lavender Alannah Hill embellished satin hairbow headband.  It is Hairbow Week, after all!  Adding a touch of whimsy is my pretty little Dogeared bunny necklace that the Blokefolk gave me for my recent birthday.  Some Bunny does love me.
