Time for another styling of some pieces already in my wardrobe in anticipation of autumn! Today I’m mixing patterns with the plaid Elsa-Lee blazer and the checked Magdalia-Lee swing dress. I’m not usually one to combine patterns like this, but there’s something about this combination that I really like!
I accessorized with my Vixen by Micheline Pitt polka dot gloves, a stack of Splendette duchess bangles, an Erstwilder brooch, and my blue hat:
I think this works so well because the colors play nicely together, and the pattern on the skirt is fairly subtle, and doesn’t really compete with the jacket.
My second purchase from the Miss Candyfloss “Smile with Lucy” autumn/winter collection is a dress I almost didn’t get, the Magdalia-Lee swing dress.
Because I knew that stock would be limited, I was ready to go before the items were released on the website, but sometimes, luck just isn’t on your side, and what I assume was the only dress available in my size was gone before I could click “add to cart.” Not for the first time, Miss Candyfloss graciously pointed me to one of their online stockists, Nostalgie Shop, where I was able to order the dress. I continue to be impressed with the customer service I receive from Miss Candyfloss!
This is a lovely swing dress with a checked skirt in navy and lilac. The simple neckline is lovely, as is the way the colors of the dress change a bit in different lights.
I chose blue and lilac accessories to accompany the dress, including a Splendette stack, a favorite Erstwilder brooch, and a cute hat.
The dress has plenty of twirl!
And it also has the most important feature…pockets!
I’m so happy Miss Candyfloss was able to help me find this dress online, because I can already tell it’s going to be a new favorite!
