Kiss of the Golden Sun

The weather gods have been extremely generous last week, until the weekend that is.

I still had enough time to go traipse around in my new maxi statement dress.

I have this dress in two colours.

I originally only knew of the dark version until I visited the websites that carried the dresses.

You can also get it here.

At the time, the dark version was only available in L, but the white version was available in all three sizes.

Knowing that the large may not fit as well as a medium and small I decided to order both dresses. The dark in a Large and the white in a Small and hoped for the best.

They both arrived super fast.

I am so glad I ordered them in both colours because even though they are the same dress, the colour difference dramatically changes the entire look.

I will do a side by side shoot in the future.

I love how this dress is short in the front, adding some sex appeal to a sweet print.

The only criticism I have is that I have to wear this dress with a belt. Perhaps it's the way it's cut, perhaps it's the shape of my body, if I don't cinch at the waist, the whole thing looks much more frumpy.

But my trusted flower belt from Gentille Alouette does the trick very well.

I also love clothing that takes on a life of their own when I move around.

The dress seem to be dancing with me.

The glow of the setting sun highlighting my outline makes my heart jump for the joy that it will be summer very soon.

That means, the dress can be worn without the accompaniment of these tights.

Who am I kidding, I will probably live in these tights through out summer.

My Tobi Haul

Tobi.com has the cutest items! Ever since I discovered this amazing Free People Ruffle Peplum Peacoat that I dedicated an entire post to.

Ever since I have always kept an close eye but never actually ordered anything...

...until now that is.

The Siren song of these items were too beautiful for me to resist.

The first thing that caught my eye was this Who's Dot Pocket Shirt in black and white polka dots.

I love how it is subtle from the front, but when you turn around, BAM, polka dot city! The sheerness makes it a great layering piece. I can even wear this as an over top to the beach. I will definitely be doing it.

Then this Bien Bien Skull and Jeweled Cheetah Clutch made its way into the shopping bag as well.

It is so Alexander McQueen-ish. It can pretty much go with every other item I have also purchased.

The next item I actually stared at for a while before I added it to the shopping bag. Not because I was hesitating over it. But because I couldn't not stop staring at it.

The Maxi'd Out Halter Dress in black.

This would be so easy to wear for the summer. I just hope the weather would cooperate so I will have many chances to wear it.

Then, the polar opposite of the black dress.

I actually never really buy white dressed. But something about this one...

The Cameo Undercover Mesh Dress in White.

Scrolling through, these shorts would have matched so well with the polka dot top.

It is called the Hot & Delicious Lined Up Shorts.

I would have to agree, it is definitely hot and delicious.

Not to mention, those shorts would be an amazing paring to this shirt.

This red Cals Collection Hankerchief top is absolutely amazing. Conservative from the front and surprising from behind.

Finally, these super fun Darla Sunglasses would definitely become my eye wear staple for all those sunny days.

I can't wait to receive these and incorporate them into my summer and spring wardrobe. The best part of it all, they were all on sale!
