Mustard


When I first put this dress on, my mum's reaction was 'eurgh!' - mustard yellow isn't her cup of tea! However, I personally am a massive fan of the colour, especially as it's so reminiscent of the 60s. I suppose it is different when you remember the era from the first time around, but I'm perfectly happy to embrace the revival - colours and all!

I found the dress on the same retro rail in Cancer Research as the blouse in my previous post - I love the idea that charity shops have now started to recognise the vintage trend. I'm pretty sure the dress is actually supposed to be a jumper, but who am I to turn down the chance to wear something super short! The dress really reminds of of something Twiggy would have worn, and I love the little Mod-style pockets on the front. It was a total bargain at £5!

What do you think of it? And are you a fan of mustard yellow?

Anyway, although I'm a bit late to jump on the band-wagon, I've just joined twitter - you can find me here!

I absolutely love mustard, even though I don't own anything in the colour :/
I think it would look great as a dress with some heels on a night-out definitely,

mustard is my favorite color ever ever. BIAS! I don't know, there's something so rich and regal about it. It gives so much color to my face and makes my face look alive. I would wear it all the time if I could.

And you look so great in it with your hair color and haircut, I would want you to too. ^_^_^

Bibi said...
