My first yellow dress I bought in, I think, 2007. It is still a firm favourite in my wardrobe, although I do not have as much occasion to wear it as I would like to. It is too low cut for work, and of a lightweight linen that needs really warm weather to feel comfortable. You can see that dress here, if you like.
There is now a second yellow dress in my wardrobe, a casual find when I happened to walk through H&M the other day. Does it happen to you, too, that you find the nicest things when you're not looking for anything?
I wrote about the many yellow items and how I prefer to combine them on my blog before; that older post is here.
Last time I bought a new dress, it was this one in March. It may not look it, but it is one of my most expensive pieces. On the same day I bought the new yellow dress, I also found a top at H&M and a white summer jacket to wear to the office - the yellow dress, top and jacket together cost less than the March-dress alone. The jacket looks a bit large, but it is supposed to be my size, and a look at Comma's website tells me that it looks rather large on their model, too.
The polka dot top (just in case you didn't know - I love polka dots!) is not purple, but a deep navy blue; it is the camera that makes it look purple.
What I really "need" now (if one ever really "needs" clothes...) is a pair of white shoes smart enough for the office, and sturdy enough for the way to work, standing around at the train station and walking to and from there.
When I found the white jacket, I was with my sister. We had met in town for our first visit to the ice cream parlour of this year, it was a beautiful sunny and warm day. On our way home we stopped at that store. While browsing the clothes racks, we came across a collection of particularly ugly things. I forgot the name on the label, it was something "Royal...", but the only "Royal" thing about them was that they had evidently been designed by the King of Bad Taste!
If I ever should be invited to a Bad Taste Party, I'd know where to look for an outfit :-D
Speaking of 80s outfits, I found this yellow retro sweater at Aldi's a month or two ago. It is my favourite outfit for days spent at home doing the cleaning and ironing, very cosy and roomy.
