Outfit: Swinging Space Age?

Dress: C/O Wal G* | Shoes: Topshop via Outfit* | Necklace: Dorothy Perkins

I don't know if I feel more like Twiggy or one of The Jetsons (ahh, old school Cartoon Network/Hanna-Barbera, you were a gem!) in this sixties-meets-space oddity dress. Either way, I love the simple swing style of it which is so simple to throw on in the morning paired with the mesh cut outs on the sleeves that make it just that little bit special. Long sleeved yet light and airy, I see this becoming a transitional staple teamed with a white jacket and a beehive up-do (if there was one fashion era that I could go back to, it would definitely be the sixties) as we wave goodbye to the Summer in the next couple of months (and I was just getting used to the sun, booo).

 I've had these shoes for a few months now but they have remained neglected, deprived of sunlight in their box ever since- I don't hit the town in the evenings very much these days (ah, the joys of becoming a responsible adult!) and I tend to lean towards more comfortable options during the day (same applies). However, the large platform on these beauties make them super comfortable, so maybe I'll brave wearing them to a couple of events in the near future!

Do you go for comfort over style?

  1. Frances your hair looks delightful...unreal!

  2. I'm gearing more towards comfort these days, I'm fed up of being in crippling agony because I've worn not so sensible shoes. I can't enjoy myself half as much when my feet are cramped, skinned and bleeding on the dance floor!

    Love the dress, I'd say it's very Jetsons! I loved that show, and loved the film they did with The Flintstones! Ah those were the days!
