Like a Boy

by cecylia on October 2, 2011

Growing up, I was a tomboy who loved playing sport, arm wrestling and racing with the boys. One of these special childhood friends, Mick, just tied the knot with his stunning bride, Kimmy, last night. I rushed home after working as a vet and quickly got changed into my favourite tuxedo shirt, by Mr Rose, to attend their wedding. The collar of this shirt is ingenius, it has the best sleeve cuffs and an amazing chest panel. Instead of pairing it with a skirt or pants, which would be too ‘boring’, I was inspired by Net-A-Porter‘s ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl’ ad, so I teamed it with a beloved tailored jumpsuit, last seen here.

Check out this shirt’s collar!

Outfit: Mr Rose Tuxedo Frill shirt (check out their accessories!!! I’m a little obssessed…), jumpsuit I bought in Paris, vintage earrings, necklace, rings, belt and clutch, Miss Sixty heels

Thank you for all of your ‘get-well’ wishes because my immune system has finally triumphed over the flu! Thank God! I’m no longer tissue-dependant! I hope you had a relaxing weekend, thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog, Facebook and Twitter pages. And if you’re free, come visit me this Sunday at the Take 2 Market at Hawthorn Town Hall if you would like to get your hands on some of my designer and vintage gems!

Congratulations Mick and Kimmy, wishing you only the most beautiful days ahead of you.

This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” —Anonymous

That’s a great outfit, C! Most of the time, we always scourge our closets and the shops for a dress whenever a wedding comes up, but whoa, you’re wearing a tuxedo shirt and a jumpsuit, which is brilliant! I love it, you look amazing :) Love how you accessorized it too, the necklace is just lovely. Happy to hear you’re immune system finally kicked out the baddies :D

Love the way the jumpsuit works on you. It’s unexpected but still quite professional looking! And thanks so much for your lovely comment! Also glad to hear you’re feeling better.

Love it! Would have never thought you were a tomboy, so was I! People would never guess I was on the soccer team, liked comics and still do! You totally pull the manly look off, necklaces under the collar are the cutest touch!
