Multicoloured dress

It is a bit risky posting outfits which I have already uploaded to the Style Forum of 40plusstyle
Because I can see that quite a few visitors of that site are visiting my blog too. So perhaps you have seen them already. On the other hand……it is a bit conceited to think everybody always paid attention to my uploads.

This multicoloured dress is one of my many favourites as I think it makes me look good both figurewise and colourwise. The only thing wrong with it, is the fact that the pattern does not run all the way round. If you have good quality stuff you can hardly see there is a seam at the side. This dress could be sold at a low price because they skimped on the material. If you don’t pay attention to the pattern running through, you can get more dresses out of the same amount of material.

You can see it was the end of summer, probably September, as the leaves were still on the hydrangea.

How about my green shoes? I was quite proud that I remembered them, hidden away at the back of my closet.

Photo above: the cat dropped from the tree onto a bush (nearly in the pond). It made such a noise that both the dog and I were startled, as you can see.

    Spectacular, beautiful and nice. The dress is lovely and the whole outfit cute. I love your shoes and the way you wear your scarf, is a very beautiful way. I think this dress you feel great, your figure looks superb and the colors will look perfect on your skin and hair.

    This dress suits you very well. It doesn’t need a lot of accessorising so I think it is very clever the way you tied your scarf. Must learn that.

      It has a lot to do with the scarf itself. This one is extremely obedient.

    The colours in the dress are gorgeous and the scarf adds a nice finishing touch:)~Anne

      The dress came with colour in different places. Which is what you would get with cheaper stuff. Other sizes had bright colours on the chest. This one, my size, had only black at e front. So I chose this scarf to brighten things up.

    Thank Brett. Never thought of it as 70’s but that was a colourful time so you might be right.

    Love the dress! I haven’t seen any of your forum uploads, so please continue to share them too.Your dog looks so funny, it’s as if he’s thinking “is another cat going to fall from the sky?”

      OK I will Heather. And cat and dog and husband are all funny. Lots of laughing in this house.

    I love this dress! It fits your personality as well as your figure. That crazy cat is always falling out of or into something in the garden. LOL! Keeps dear Charlie on her toes. :)USA SuzannePS – This reminds me that I have a pair of shoes in the shade of green. I need to dig them out of the closet. You have inspired me!

    Love this dress. I thinks its so nice when you can simply pull on a dress and IT alone makes the outfit. This one definitely does that, although you have the figure to pull off this colorful and fitted style.

      Thanks Trina. Never knew I had such a figure. Sometimes age comes with nice surprises.

      Thanks Dan. I was really pleased (and surprised) myself. Good light while taking a photo with a proper camera do help a lot to paint a pretty picture.
