The memories I am talking about here are from the night D and I first kissed… Nope, we are not celebrating anything, other than each other every single day, it’s the DRESS! This is the dress I was wearing that night, so yes, this is old, and yes again, no chance of finding it online – but I found something similar. I have no idea if I should be happy or sad that it still fits me exactly the same, despite being a week short from entering the fifth month of pregnancy. I do have to admit that I am quite proud that I was not forced to buy any new clothes until now, well not for the pregnancy, anyway, and I haven’t yet changed clothing sizes, but this dress fits me all too well around the belly and, even though I know that I was a bit fatter back then, I still can’t explain this.
While I was looking in my closet that morning and decided to wear this dress, I admit that I was a bit scared that it will either be too small or it will be a bit to tight to wear for an entire afternoon. You can imagine my surprise when I realised that it fitted me just right. I do not mean to sound annoying, as I do realise that from this point on I should really start gaining weigh, but you have to believe me when I tell you that most of the time I feel so overweight and huge – but more on that in the following pregnancy post – and it is a sort of personal victory when I realise that my old clothes still fit me right. Anyway, being all excited that this dress fits me just right I went from there and decided on the colour theme: blue and yellow.
Dress – KOTON; Shoes – Christian Louboutin; Bag – Michael Kors; Bling – Swarovski, Tomorrowland and Pandora; Sunglasses – Dior; Watch – Longines
Yes, I know that I mentioned a few (to say the least) times that this is one of my favourite combos and I am sure you are a bit tired of this combo judging by the amount of fashion posts we’ve had wearing these two colours so far, but I can’t really help it! Right, so, the ancient dress is from KOTON and what really drew me to it back then and makes me come back to it nowadays is the intense colour and the cut. I just love this cut, it makes me feel like a princess, like I’m 6 all over again when my mother used to dress me up like a living doll. I guess all that is due to the big bow at the back and the bare shoulders, two things I absolutely love about any dress. Or at least I used to love when I was still going to the gym and had a nice pair of shoulders.
T-shirt – Hugo Boss; Pants – ZARA; Shoes – Mango; Bling – Fossil; Watch – Longines
As with most of my outfits, I paired the rather cheap dress with a pair of fabulous yellow Pigalles by Christian Louboutin and a gold bag by Michael Kors. I have to admit that I wasn’t sure that I will make it the entire afternoon wearing 100 mm heels, but my Loubs did not disappoint me and 6 hours later I was still feeling great wearing them. Being an afternoon event, I wore my Dior sunglasses, because I have to take advantage of the last rays of sun as autumn will soon be here. I also wore two bangles from Swarovski and my rings from Pandora and Tomorrowland.
D really enjoys this colour scheme so he went along happily. As a matter of fact, I think that he is to blame for it entirely as a day before he informed me that he would like to wear his new T-shirt from Hugo Boss that I just got him and a pair of Zara pants (he let me choose which ones, but he only has them in different shades of blue). Knowing how much he loves this combo I honestly think that it’s because of him that we ended up wearing what we did. He also wore his Mango espadrilles because they were yellow and his omnipresent Fossil bracelet. We both decided on wearing out Longines watches mainly because of the dark blue dial.
I have to say that the afternoon was a lot of fun and in some ways a learning experience for us as we went to a little girl’s birthday celebration. Wearing the dress again and seeing that it still fits me really tamed down the ‘fat demons’ for a while and brought back some cherished memories for both of us.
