|Dress: Donna's (Influence)|
|Clutch: Donna's (Marc B) // Secret Garden Trainers: ICED by Irregular Choice|
|Necklace (worn as belt): Dorothy Perkins|
I mentioned last month that I was taking part in #FrockSwap15, where we each send an item of clothing on to the others for them to style up. I was excited to receive my first parcel, last week, which came from Donna. She sent this bird print dress and yellow clutch bag, which I thought actually go quite nicely together. I'm not sure if the two items are supposed to be worn together or not.
The dress is long-sleeved and fairly straight cut, so not exactly the shape I'd usually be drawn to, as well as being a little shorter than I'd usually choose, so I decided that I'd style it with flats. These Irregular Choice trainers, which I like due to their fabulous faux flower detail.
I figured that the colours in this blazer were quite close to those in the bird pattern and likewise these tights. Rather than narrow waist belt, I decided to try and add some detail to the waist with this corsage tie (it's actually a necklace, apparently), which I thought would work with the shoes, despite being totally different flowers.
I finished the outfit off with this cute brooch, which was a lovely Christmas present a couple of years ago.
How did I do? How would you have styled Donna's dress?
