Spice Up Your Life

This fabulous dress is by New Zealand Designer Karen Walker. Cut in a loose, flattering shape, it features a round neckline with subtle pleat detail and dramatic puff sleeves that create a beautiful silhouette. It simply slips on & sits just above the knee. This dress however, is all about it's vibrant orange hue. It makes quite a statement!

They say you should put some orange in your life when you want to spice things up; orange is a power colour, a healing colour, and wearing it is said to balance your emotions in times of stress and shock. Dramatic and dynamic for sure, it is much more gentle and easier to wear than the fiery heat of red.

I styled the dress with a cool pair of Tiger print Louboutin's and some lovely accessories; a feather clutch from ASOS and beautiful, delicate jewellery by Alex Monroe. My wonderful Husband commissioned Alex to make the Daisy Chain bracelet for me. Such a romantic surprise; it is a real treasure & I absolutely adore it! And of course, I simply had to include a photo of my Karen Walker doll who is wearing the very same fabulous dress!

We had an interesting Blog shoot for this dress, in gale force winds that literally seemed to be trying to undress me! So forceful was the wind, it actually tore the hem of my dress; thank goodness I have a great Tailor!
