There’s a certain something about the combination of pale pink and sheer white stockings that makes me feel like a princess.
Pink and white is one of my favorite combinations. I don’t get to wear it too often because pale colours get dirty very, very quickly around here with a rambunctious teenage Vallhund, but when I get the opportunity, it’s absolutely relished. That’s why I freaked out when I found a pink and white box bag from Forever New for $16. Admittedly it doesn’t see the light of day too often because of the silver hardware (you know me, I’m a gold girl) and the fact that I’m super duper paranoid about getting it dirty (touch wood!) but it remains a solid favorite in my bag collection. That’s why when I got an opportunity to buy a matching pink patent belt with a silver buckle on it (also from Forever New), I jumped at the change to finally get an accessory that matched!
What I wore:
- Silver Studded Heart Necklace – Mum’s
- Silver and White Striped Top – SES, $2 (Amazing bargain!)
- Pink Patent Belt with Silver Buckle – Forever New, $6.50
- Silver Mesh Band Watch with Sapphire Face – Target, $6
- Lace Short With Scallop Edge – ASOS, $11
- Sheer White Tights with Heart Print – Forever New, $5
- White Kidskin Leather Heels – Mascotte, $28
It was then that I realised that I’m wearing three things from Forever New in this outfit. Big fan (of their wares and their sales), guilty as charged.
I always wanted a pair of white tights with white hearts on them and I found the perfect pair at Forever New that fit the bill. Normally, I’d be the first to advocate ducking off to eBay or AliExpress to buy these sorts of things but the fatal flaw with that comes with having long legs that don’t fit into little Asian-made pantyhose, so I had to find a pair in Australia. It’s not as easy as you’d think!
Same with finding a pair of perfect white leather heels. Mascotte is known for having all kinds of unusual styles in their stores, and when I found these in their city store, on special down from $140, I had to snap ’em up. They’re lovely and so comfy! As an aside, at the moment, their (Brisbane) city store is closing down which means that pretty much everything is 50% off or more and it’s a great time to nab a bargain for those who like kooky styles of shoes.
But what I’m most excited to show you is this watch that I bought from Target about a year ago. I found it on the clearance/damaged items/opened packets rack back when they used to have those (dammit, bring it back!!) for $6 because it had a broken clasp. I wouldn’t call it so much broken as missing the second clasp–it still closes and holds just fine with only one clasp and I didn’t even know that it was missing until I took it home and noticed that it didn’t have the second securing latch on it like my other mesh watches. Although I don’t wear a lot of silver, it was definitely a good find for when I do wear those kinds of outfits.
All in all, I think I pulled off my silver-toned outfit quite successfully! Would you and do you switch your metal colour of choice when the mood strikes you or are you loyal to your colour?
