Shell Pink

Shell pink... neither pink, beige or cream but a beautiful pastel hue that is a combination of all three. Delighted I was to find not only a dress but also some of-the-moment platform shoes to compliment it with.

I bought the dress a couple of weeks ago where it has hung ever since on my bedroom wall while I deliberated over whether or not to keep it. It reminded me a little too much of that TBA dress, which in truth I would have preferred had it not been for the significant price difference.

But the cute details won me over - the black collar, delicate covered buttons running down the back... and it's beautiful pastel colour of course.

I had planned on taking some photographs outside, the light is so much better. But due to a typical British downpour, I had to make do with my bedroom and the beautiful sounds of Serge Gainsbourg for company.

  38. Oooh, i love that dress. I've had my eye on it, but I know what you mean about the TBA one as well.

    I think those shoes were the ones the models were wearing at the Orla Kiely presentation at LFW. They wore them with ankle socks, which is possibly a look reserved for leggy models I think?!

  56. Hi,
    I hope you don't mind me asking, but what are the quality of your Tabio heart tights like? I bought some cheap ones and they've laddered as the material is so sheer.
    Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. caroline - they are sheer still so won't last as long as opaques but i really think the overall quality of tabio is so much better than any other brand i've used. i think it's worth paying the little extra.
