My Yumi Yellow Dress

I was given this dress a few weeks ago for Blogfest and had intended wearing it with a white shirt underneath to the event. However the only white shirt I have wasn’t white enough and I had a footwear dilemma too. Add to that the tizz I was getting myself into about heading to London, I decided to play it safe and wear my Gok dress. But now I see these photos, I’m wondering if I missed a trick. Said it before and say it again…taking photos of your outfits is very useful!

Black Studded Shoes – Office
Black Lace Cropped Jacket – Warehouse (past season)

I styled the dress with this little black lace jacket I bought a few years ago in Warehouse and I’m so pleased at how well they go together. The length is perfect to show off the bow at the back. And I’m loving my new mad shoes from last week’s post. Who’d have thought they would work with a skirt?

And here it is without the little jacket. With the right white shirt, it would look great..I’m off now to read The Flaky Fashionista’s White Shirt Guide again..

    This dress looks gorgeous on you, the colour is a real lift on a grey December day and the black accents make it sooooo much easier to wear…but then that’s me, I’m a wimp when it comes to colour but this really appeals :)
    I look forward to seeing it with a white shirt too

  3. Ooh – liking the shoes with this – helps to have the right shaped legs for this kind of ensemble as well. The Gok dress is so different to the Yumi one, it would have been really hard to compare. Hindsight is wonderful but it can also send you round in a tizzy.

    Oh thank you so much for the kind mention. Hugely appreciated! Love the dress and think that a white shirt would look great under it. Don’t second guess your Blogfest outfit – the Gok dress was perfect and as a more sophisticated dress, it probably suited the event better. Helen

  5. Such a sweet outfit & your shoes are PERFECT with it!
