What I'm Wearing | Black & Gold

7:00 PM

As I've probably said before, I love dresses.  It's the easiest way for me to look pulled together in no time flat!
 All you have to do is add shoes, accessories, a handbag and a great pair of sunglasses and you're off!
I've always love the combination of black and gold.  It's just something so refined and polished about black contrasted with golden metal.  
I've loved this dress since I first made in December.  It was a really simple project to sew and I knew I'd be wearing it also during the hot months.

Don't you just love clothes that you can wear all year round?

  4. you do look very "pulled together" - I sometimes think perhaps we should adopt the fashion industry example and sew summer stuff in the winter and winter stuff in the summer. However we sometimes never know if our summer will arrive in the UK lol

  5. Great look. I really like your hair pulled back like that, the better to emphasize your gorgeous face!

  6. Great dress...even the second blog time around! I really like that you shortened the sleeves...I think the kimono sleeves as they are drafted would have really overpowered this dress. Well done!
