Sartorial Saturday–Stripes and Tartan

Time for a look at another piece from the Miss Candyfloss “Exquisite” collection…the Ottilia-Sadie swing dress! It’s a beautiful style that looks like a suit. The bodice has my favorite row of asymmetrical buttons, but this time, they’re decorative, not functional. It has a lovely high collar and subtle stripes, which go really well with the tartan skirt and belt.

Because the colors are so neutral, you can accessorize with just about anything! This time, I went with my favorite camel hat, grey, cream, and burgundy Splendette Duchess Bangles, an Erstwilder brooch, and black gloves.

The skirt is lovely and full, perfect for twirling!

I’m really excited about wearing this dress in the cooler months…it’s versatile and so, so pretty!

Sartorial Saturday–Swinging the Blues

It’s time for a look at an outfit from the Miss Candyfloss “Exquisite” collection that I almost didn’t order…the Minerva-Lee double collared blazer and the Cressida-Lee swing skirt with buttons!

In general, I prefer wearing dresses to skirts, because dresses are so much easier (no worries about what top you’re going to pair with them), and you can worry a bit less about the fit (no fussy waistband as long as the rest of the garment fits). I had a dress that I was planning to order from Miss Candyfloss (the lovely Xanthe-Mai blazer dress if you were wondering), and I was really looking forward to it, and then I saw this beautiful skirt suit styled a few different ways, and I knew that I had to add it my wardrobe instead.

I accessorized with blue and white Splendette Duchess Bangles and a cute Erstwilder bird brooch, plus some lacy gloves and my favorite hat:

The jacket is the most gorgeous shade of blue! I love the double collar, and the contrasting cuffs and buttons.

One of the best features of the jacket, though, you only see from behind…it has the most elegant peplum!

I also love that the skirt buttons all the way down the front…I think that will provide some interesting styling opportunities next summer!

This look is so lovely…I’m glad I decided against my standard dress for once!

I’m looking forward to pairing the jacket with some of my dresses, and the skirt is going to be a great year-round piece that will go with so many things!

Sartorial Saturday–The Eponymous Dress

I’m very excited to share my first purchase from the new autumn/winter collection, Exquisite, from Miss Candyfloss, and the reason I am so excited about will be very obvious…it’s the lovely Amanda-Sunrise swing dress!

Yes, when I realized that one of the new dresses shares my name, I knew I had to add it to my wardrobe. But it’s not just tastefully named…it’s also the perfect dress for fall! The colors are warm and gorgeous, I love the tulip sleeves, and the skirt is wonderfully soft and cozy!

I accessorized with a stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles, an Erstwilder brooch, velvet gloves, and my favorite hat:

Everything about this look just screams autumn!!!

I’m looking forward to sharing a few other pieces from this collection that might not share my name, but certainly called it!
