Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge - Red & Pink

Today's wardrobe challenge was all about breaking one of those "fashion rules" and wearing red and pink together - you know - those two colours that don't "go" together.I have had this vintage dress for a while, I picked it up from the Fringe Markets one Saturday and see as it was already pink and red (and blue) I figured it was perfect for the challenge!

The I mixed it up with a whole bunch of red and pink accessories and of course my red shoes and a pink cardy. The fabric of the dress also includes some little blue flowers - so I decided to wear a blue belt - just for a little something different. Outfit Deets:



Dress - Vintage, Fringe Markets, Cuba Street



Cardy, belt & tights - Glassons



Shoes - Cotton on



Necklace - Made by Meg



Brooch - Made by my friend Fiona

Ahh! I logged in purposely to tell you that I love that color on you, because I don't remember seeing you in anything so light before, and then I saw the necklace I made you! My heart jumped a little bit. ^_^ You look so pretty in pink (giggle- I love that movie).

Dammit I need to have a flats collection like yours. And could you please come give me a makeover? I need to know how to wear vintage like you.

Julia - thanks so much. I really wasn't too sure about this outfit, so its nice to have such lovely comments.

Ssdie - Thanks so much, I was a bit worried when I left home as I thought maybe it just looked like I was wearing an old lady house dress. Are you doing next weeks challenge? Its shiny! I think I have a plan - but then I think that then half the time I end up changing it on the day :P
