Pink Ponte Me + Em dress
I’d been lusting after this pink Me + Em dress since it dropped in early February and I included it in my spring dress wish list. I managed to wait for about a month until resistance became futile. I can’t tell you how glad I am that I indulged.
It’s made from the most beautiful heavyweight Ponte jersey fabric which hangs beautifully. It’s machine washable and if you hang it while damp, it needs only the merest of ironing. IT HAS POCKETS. The gentle fit and flare silhouette and the dipped back is extremely flattering. It fastens with a white zipper at the back; the zipper at the front can be used to alter the neckline. The colour is so so stunning- it’s guaranteed to turn heads. In fact when we were taking these photographs, several passers by- both men and women- complimented me on my outfit.
This dress makes me feel like a million dollars. As well as wearing it with these equally fabulous shoes, I’ll wear it with sneakers, with flat sandals, with slides and with wedges. On cooler days, a denim jacket, blazer or pashmina will work very nicely indeed. I haven’t been this excited about a dress in a long time. If you like the shape but not the pink, then fear not. It comes in navy as well.
Trending… coloured metal eyewear
We know that pink is THE colour of the season. Perhaps less obvious on the fashion radar is the fact that coloured metal eyewear is trending this season and I think it’s going to be huge for seasons to come. It’s an excellent way to wear coloured eyewear if (the usually) bolder acetates are too much. This is Wild Side by Italian brand Coco Song. Isn’t it exquisite? It’s elegant and classy; it almost feels like a piece of jewellery. Just look at the detail on the sides.
It’s super-lightweight too and it comes in a range of other colours. I’d describe the shape as being a soft geometric, or a slightly angular round. Either way, it has character and style in abundance yet it whispers rather than shouts. I’m very tempted not to return this to the MAC Eyewear team and to have my prescription put in!
