This Weeks Hot Zara Dress


blackrabbitphoto_yvonne 5_IG-2Is it bad to copy a look? I’m going to have to start this post with a confession – this look is totally inspired by  lovely Sylwina who I bumped into at last weeks fish event at the Dolder Grand. She was wearing this dress – looking fab with Hermes boots…later that week I saw the dress again on Désirée and fell in love with the look once more. I found out it was from Zara – hugely surprised as was expecting it to be some exclusive brand and far more expensive than current clothing budget. At CHF39 this has got to be a bargain!

Being a white dress and being totally pale right now the trick to make this dress work is by adding a piece of colour to it – decided to go for a vintage Hermes scarf of mine.

Loved the inspiration of the boots without stockings too – what a brilliant way to hide pale legs.

The bag is my own inspirational touch with the little Furla bag added to my LV – perfect for keeping business cards separate from the rest of “kitchen sink” to be found in LV – smile!


Thanks for the lovely inspiration Sylwina!
