The Dress - Black & Cream

So as you can see, I've been very good at not buying clothes recently. It's amazing how many "outfits" you can create just by mixing and matching, adding a few different accessories, and ta-da!!! A new outfit and you didn't even buy anything. Black and cream is a colour combination I've ever really experimented with, but I think it works quite well.

Dress: Club Coco
I've worn this dress on here before. Paired with a navy cardigan, it's also the dress I wore to the 1920s Ball that I attended. So as you can see it gets a lot of wear. It's also extra special because it was a hand-me-down from a friend in Taiwan. Getting clothes off friends is the best.

Cardigan: Mango
What can I say - it goes with everything! And seeing as I got it in 2010 and wear it all the time, it's lasting pretty well.

I bought this belt recently, and seeing as it was a "tiny" bit expensive for a belt, I'm determined to prove that it was a worthwhile investment. I really love the contrast between the black and cream.

Stockings: Step Out
Okay, I almost couldn't believe this when I heard it, but they are now selling seamed stockings at the supermarket! I kid you not. Well, at New World any way. The brand is called "Step Out" and they have some wonderfully inspired seamed stockings. Did I mention that they sell them at the supermarket! These cost around NZ$16, and you can also get sheer with a black seam. I am so excited and plan to buy more. After all, if a company is willing to sell vintage-inspired stockings at the supermarket (!) I totally want to support them in that. These ones are 15 denier and seem to be reasonably good value for money. 

Shoes: Top Shop
These shoes are now solely reserved for black stockings, as they keep staining my skin-coloured stockings (argh!). Does anyone else have this problem?

Until next time :)
