Chrysanthemum

Dress - Trashy Diva
Sunglasses - Wildfox
Shoes - Wittner
Parasol - gift
I've noticed that in the last few months I have accumulated quite a number of dresses that have an Asian influence. What excited me most about this dress is the way it is a combination of two styles that I love to wear - the top half is similar to a qipao, and the lower half is like a swing dress. I also love the swishy pleats and the soft fabric- this dress just makes me want to twirl! I don't have enough yellow in my wardrobe and after wearing this dress I think it might be one of my new favorite colors to wear. Another thing I'm really loving at the moment are these round 40s style glasses that I bought especially to wear with my 40s dresses, whenever I put them on they make me think of Barbara Stanwyk in Double Indemnity!

  16. I fell seriously hard for yellow in the autumn of 2012 and have been entranced with it ever since, so I can certainly relate to your new found love for the colour of sun. :)

    Beautiful dress and photo shoot location. I always adore it when you take snaps amongst the bamboo, as it's a setting so unlike any I would ever encounter here in the Canadian wilderness.
