Over the years, I have become both meticulous and fastidious about the types of clothes that suit me. The colour palette of my wardrobe, for instance, is somewhat limited to the neutral/nude/blush part of the spectrum with a sporadic outburst of colour here and there. This dress, a lovely gift from the kind people at BaBassu, is quite an aberrant article of clothing in my wardrobe with its luscious deep emerald green - a colour I would never gravitate to on my own accord. However, I immediately fell in love with the floaty chiffon and pleats the moment I slipped into it and was pleasantly surprised at the regal tones against my skin. The belt is actually my grandma's - a vintage treasure that I have struggled to match with the rest of my wardrobe - but it is apparently an apt companion to this dress!
Love, Mandy. xx
