What I Wore | Verily Maxi Dress


Time for Wardrobe Wednesday with Kelly at Kiwi Womens Style.  I’m sharing how I styled my Verily Squiggle Maxi Dress.

True to the shared ethos of both Kelly and Kimba, Wardrobe Wednesday is likely to feature several thrifted and opshopped bargain buys.  Come and join in the fun!

What I Wore



I adore Verily’s designs.  Leonie Macleod, the beauty and the brains behind Verily , is the master of the cut.  Her pieces are deceptively simple and oh so flattering with their curve enhancing design.

This piece was a limited edition and has now sold out.  It is perfect for dealing with tricky transseasonal weather.  Wear tights underneath, with ankle boots and add a scarf and a cardigan and jacket on top and you’re good to go.  As the day cools down and heats up, just add and remove layers.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I’ve added a long geometric House of Harlow necklace to draw the eye down – a classic curve deflecting move.  I’m not usually a fan of neutrals on neutrals so I’ve added a pop of mustard yellow with some fab Sussan opaque tights.  I bang on about these tights all the time – very good quality at such a tiny price.

I’m wearing Wittner black suede Albert slippers and cream Mimco Tattoo Bubble brogues.  A Brown Sugar lurex oversized bolero cardigan is keeping me snuggly and  my gorgeous tan cropped leather jacket is doing the same.  Isn’t it amazing how different the same piece can look with a different layer?

It’s pretty cute with purple tights too, don’t you think?  Goes as well with my Target Alton Stud ankle boots as with my Ziera antique gold T bar flats.  The neutral cardigan is a cotton knit poncho cardigan by Sadie from Meshh in Byron Bay – one of my favourite shops!  Love a neck party too.  This one has pieces from Pleasure, Little Treasure, Seven Cherubs and my old favourite pave diamond heart, a love token from the Welshman many, many years ago.

The beautiful lipstick is Red by Mary Kay, for whom I’m proud to be an independent Beauty Consultant.

    Kelly Likes Too. Thanks for sharing such a cute dress and your awesome (as always) styling tips. You’ve inspired me to get a kimono jacket! Look out for it in this months budget post 🙂

    Don’t you just love it when you can style ONE thing so many different ways? That’s what I call value for money.ReplyCancel

    Oh I love the way that one dress can be styled three ways!

    I too have mustard yellow Sussan tights – I adores them! They go through the machine and are ready to wear again and again. I now have electric blue ones too, and some patterned black ones. I don’t know why I have bothered buying tights from anywhere else!

    Loving those Mimco brogues too… I have serious shoe envy!

    Great post… so much SHARING! Yippeeeee!ReplyCancel
