Sun in The Sky, Sun in My Eyes

Taking photos outside may actually become a habit of mine! I got home from work knowing my Mum was about to finish work too so I impulsively grabbed my white heels and walked straight out the door again to besiege her. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my digital camera AND my white Gucci sunglasses (to complete my all-white look) but hey, I'm getting there... So again, my apologies for the iPhone quality photos... And my squinted eyes...

This all-white look was inspired by this month's link-up challenge from:

A little tip: Remember if you're wearing a fitted or thin white garment, to wear nude underwear or if it's a dress, a nude slip can come in handy.

Yes, I'm in a graveyard...

I'm wearing:
Karen Millen white broderie dress with altered neckline [similar]
Barratts white patent platform heels [similar]

I bought this dress during the last season I worked at Karen Millen as a Supervisor, Spring/Summer 2012. (I recently was re-employed by the brand as a part-timer while I'm at college, FYI.) The neckline was originally too high for me so I took it to my lovely seamstress and she altered the neckline for me. It's a great little trick if you really want a dress that has an uncomfortable neckline.

It's meant to be a shift dress but shift dresses rarely look like shift dresses on my curves :)

Since I was at work (where I have to stand up all the time) today, I was actually wearing my red patent flats with this dress but I changed into these white heels for photo taking.

Let me know what you think of the white on white trend?

  1. I adore this all white look and I'm sure your sunglasses would've been quite the finish to this look! :) You are so right about wearing nude underneath white too! I learned this back when I was 12 years old and never forgot this! Have a lovely night! xx Pip

  2. You look fantastic. What a beautiful dress. Lowering the neckline = great idea. That close-in shot of you makes me sorta glad you forgot the sunnies. Squinty or not, still such lovely eyes. Gorgeous look, dear.

  3. Wow, lovely dress! I'd agree that shift dresses won't work on our body type. So I love the fact that you had the neckline altered. It gave the dress a sensual look. ;)

    Now I'm intrigued how you'd look if you have sunnies with you as well.

  10. I'm not a very big fan of white, but only because I always get it dirty and it makes me look dead because I'm already pale enough on my own xD

    But I have to say, I really liked the dress on you!! I think it is extremely flattering, specially because of the place it cinches in! =D
