Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. You look gorgeous, Yvonne. Very fresh and charming. I, on the other hand, will eschew the LWD because it’s just not me 🙂 and probably shimmy into something bright red instead.

  2. Mmm, there is an idea! I have this beautiful white blouse…..I could by a white skirt with it! I posted an hole white outfit yesterday! Did you see it?

  3. I love Little White Dresses and own so many of them. Your dress with the blush and lace is simply gorgeous! I love it with the dark tights and dark shoes. Great tips too, Yvonne. I styled a LWD for Fall in my last blog post, too. Come take a peek. 😉

    Welcome by and linkup with my brand-new, recent Thursday Moda. Come share your awesome style with me and my readers. Thanks and enjoy the weekend!


  4. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I really like the little white dress with black tights look. It looks super on blondes. You look stunning!
