7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Day 1

7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Day 1

The challenge has begun!

7 Looks x 7 Days – all based around the same LBD.

For day 1 I thought I should push my normal boundaries. Even though you knew I was going to cover my knees, bet you didn’t think I would go with a long mustard coloured skirt under my LBD to do it! I used a giant geometric/tribal print scarf to tie the look together. Notice it has orange in it. My go to, gotta have colour!I’ve also put on a stack of copper and wood bracelets, and the hammered gold neck cuff, to continue the tribal theme. You can’t see them, but I have on a super tall pair of cork wedges that have a mustard coloured suede strappy sandal top.

What I like about this look:

The waist of the dress looks a little like a cumberbund or an obi which gives the look a dressy feel.

The double layer of flowy fabrics work really well together.

The giant scarf has actually become the star of this outfit.

It’s dressy in a comfortable yet elegant way.

It works the Tribal/Ethnic Trend in an elegant and dressy way.

What I don’t like about this look:

It’s not a look to be worn locally. It might just be too much for rural Victoria. definitely will be a night out in Melbourne for this one…although…maybe…if I’m feeling brave! It’s growing on me.

Would you? Or wouldn’t you wear this look?
