Go Forth and Colour

by cecylia on May 23, 2012

Last week an Image Consultant picked my brains about the secret to great style, how to be stylish on holidays, the current trends, who inspires me, and more. Her questions were really thought-provoking and included ones such as ‘What’s the one piece of advice women need but don’t get?” If you like fashion, and reading, here’s the interview. Let me know your thoughts on my thoughts.

When I Facebooked that I wore a pretty extravagant outfit for the 3rd day of MBAFW, you all asked me to spill some footage. I sneaked a little something on Instagram (@cecyliadotcom) as a teaser, but here I am to satisfy your curiosity with these. As aforementioned, I’ve had this vintage frock in the closet for 15 years (even if it wasn’t vintage then, it is now!). Couldn’t go pass an eye-candy like this in the op-shop. Took it home, stared at it for a day, but then left it in abandonment. Until now! The revival of spring prints, bold hues and my thick skin worked in perfect harmony to showcase the dress along with the incredible Paula Walden neck creation once again. Men, take note. Why only buy your ladies a bouquet of perishable petals* when you can represent your undying love in the form of timeless laser-cut blooms?

Where: somewhere in the Sydney CBD

Wear: Vintage dress, Paula Walden neck-piece, vintage shades & bag, Repetto shoes

*Men, that said, you should still buy your ladies flowers.

It’s all about those sleeves. Love it and the cute t-bars.

cecylia May 24, 2012 at 10:31 am

That dress is gorgeous! I love it with the red accessories. Good on you for keeping a dress for 15 years and still fitting into it, no way could I do that with clothes from 15 years ago!!

great interview – you need to explain why the pink panther is your style icon, I’d love to know why! :) Really like that pleated maxi skirt with the gorgeous sunset.sunrise on it too!

cecylia May 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

Thank you Mica! It’s because the dress is elasticised! :D
Thanks for reading the interview, I like the Pink Panther because he’s pink :)

Mica May 24, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Ahhh clever! I need more elasticised items in my wardrobe!!!! And I feel silly for not guessing that about the pink panther, doh! :P

cecylia May 24, 2012 at 9:29 pm

lol not at all, my husband asked me about it too :)

Alexandra May 23, 2012 at 11:16 pm

Wow! you look absolutely flawless dear! The dress is truly gorgeous. I love it’s floral pattern and weightless fabric which make the gown so romantic and feminine! The shot with the sun peeping through the leaves is absolutely stunning!




cecylia May 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

Thank you, it’s rather vintage isn’t it?

Not Just A Pretty Dress May 28, 2012 at 6:58 am

This is such a special dress, I’m lad you got it! Yes, of course I have pieces in the closet that I’ve sported yet, but of course (this is what I tell myself…) I’m just waiting for a special occasion to wear them as this tends to happen with the most ‘eccentric’ pieces!

cecylia May 28, 2012 at 11:01 pm

Yes I used to wait for a special occasion, now I just wear it when I can, or else it will be lonely :D
