OoTD No. 11 – Pink bits*

Last weekend, the Boyfriend and I celebrated our sixth anniversary. Happy anniversary, my love! It continues to astound me that we have not yet grown sick of each other. (You think my sweet nothings are romantic? This is what he said to me on the day: “It has been most enjoying spending these years with you.” “Don’t you mean enjoyable?” “No. Enjoying.” ENVY OUR PERFECT RELATIONSHIP.)

I wore this outfit for our anniversary date: dinner at Mille Vini and drinks at Toko.


This dress is the best purchase I’ve made all season. On the surface it may seem like the same drab Australian winter fare I’ve ranted against on this blog but, with the right oversized and overcoloured accessories, this sensible grey dress becomes the base for a wonderful clownish mess. Also, and perhaps more importantly, my arse looks spectacular in it.



I am desperately in love with these shoes. I’d be eyeing off the brogue/man-style/oxford trend warily for the last few months until I eventually caved and bought these sweet patent leather jazz shoes from Bloch. Not only are they great looking, but they are deadset the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. (This is a pretty big deal coming from me, given my respectable collection of sneakers.) They’re like slippers and I want to marry them.

      We’d gone through quite a bit of wine and cocktails by the time these were taken, so I was feeling rather minxy.

    The way your arm is posed in the second picture makes it look like you have an unfeasibly enormous left titty.

      PS. I know this outfit is a good one because a gorgeous twink in Darlo told me I looked “stunning”. I AM 100% FIERCE GAY APPROVED.

    Those are some great shoes ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love your shoes. I had shoes like yours many years ago, wore them till they almost fell from my feet in pieces, and could never again find similar shoes. (I like the rest of your outfit, too, but the shoes are marvelous)

      I’ve already had them resoled and I’m seriously considering going back to Bloch to get another pair. If they died on me I’d be inconsolable.

    Oh happy days! You look fantastic and ready to celebrate – love the NakiMuli brooch!

    I love the look. I especially like the giant 10 in the background.

    • 19 Frances 6 August, 2010 at 1:35 pm

      Thank you! It was the Boyfriend who demanded a photo with the 10. Sydney’s grungy little alleyways always make for good photo backdrops.

    That lolly pink is fantastic on you! The grey dress is awesome too – I can see so much potential for variety with that piece.

    Wow! Happy anniversary

  15. 23 StephanieDJL 11 August, 2010 at 12:38 am

    Could I be any more in love with this? No, I don’t think so! Happy Anniversary! ๐Ÿ™‚
