Story Of The Perfect Fall Dress

versatile fall autumn sixties dress navy blue mustard yellow

When I went to Luxembourg city last weekend to shoot some outfit pictures with a friend, I would never have guessed that I'd be coming home with two same dresses. Of course I knew I'd be hitting the stores because I mean - Hello?! Why wouldn't I? - but in fact I had been looking for this cardigan. The cardigan however seemed to be of an average quality so I didn't want to spend 50 euros on it. I was already on my way home, without a single shopping bag in my hands, when I saw a Promod store and thought to myself that it wouldn't hurt anybody if I entered for a quick round. The quick round ended in the changing rooms as this mustard yellow dress had caught my eyes. Unfortunately there was only one left that didn't fit and so I decided to buy the same dress in navy blue which I liked just as much and which was available in my size. Why did I like the dresses so much? Well the A-line and the cute pockets had such an obvious 60s flair about them that I immediately felt comfortable and playful in this dress. Furthermore both the blue and the yellow were matching my brown overknees quite well and still, I thought, both colours would also look great with a grey cardigan or black tights. Really versatile dresses thus. Now you may be wondering how it came that in the end I came home with the two colour options? Well I knew about another Promod store being almost on my way to the central station so I popped in but couldn't see the yellow dress anywhere. So I asked a shop assistant and she pulled out a single last yellow dress which was exactly my size! Yay, happy me! I immediately went to the cash register with the words "Oh I won't need another shopping bag, I've already bought the dress in blue..."

  3. Lucky you! I like these type of dresses, 60s are anyway my favourite fashion era. And it has happened to me before to buy the same dress in different colours, so this is perfectly 'normal' :)

  5. These colors are so beautiful, I am so into blue! Mustard is a new color for me, but I like it very much. I totally get you, once I bought the same dress in blue and beige, and plus it was on discount, I couldn't stop myself :)) but I think when you find something that fits you and you really like and you are sure you will wear it, so I definitely would go for it!! :) can't wait to see you rocking these dresses!! ;))
