Blue My Mind

by cecylia on July 9, 2012

One of the detrimental effects of birthday-week is the over-indulgence of food (even on the 7th day I ate more cheese and curry laksa), ah yes the double-edge sword that satiates ones taste-buds but also  saturates the waist band…and so I present to you: What-Cecylia-Wears-When-She-is-Feeling-Fat. An outfit in one colour! I was a little upset that I didn’t have shoes in royal blue, don’t you think that these Carven beauties would have nailed this outfit further? And yes, my necklace is made from nails.


So to the lovely reader who asked a friend of mine ‘Is Cecylia really that tall in real life?’, this outfit is dedicated to you. When one wears one colour head-almost-to-toe, one appears leaner and longer. But hey, standing next to a tiny dog in heels also helps.

Where: Visiting Finessence Photography

Wear: Vintage necklace, jumper, pants, Christian Dior bag, Miss Sixty heels, Edenborough Evans ring

Oh and if you fancy some more reading, my dear friends Jess of What Would Karl Do and Cheryl of BusinessChic and I are featured in The Weekly Review today, you can view the full article here. Thank you Jane Rocca for the great write-up. Enjoy your day lovelies!

I love that you’re brave enough to wear a monochromatic outfit, as I have yet to do so. You make blue on blue work so well, and your accessories are perfect. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, it really means a lot to me!

Hmm.. All-blue is a great idea! :) I’ve always worn all-black when I’m feeling fat, but sometimes all-black also makes me sad, it seems like I’m going to a burial. I think all-blue would be a great alternative.

Congrats on being featured in the weekly review :)

I really like this all blue (expect the black shoes) outfit on you! You pull it off really well adding interest with different textures in the top and pants :)

I noticed Theodore’s leash is matching too – not sure if it was on accident or on purpose, but it’s very cute! :)

Thank you Mica! I agree, the black shoes were not top notch :D that’s Theodore’s car-lead. We keep one in the car as we often forget his lead. He has another blue leather one :) We bought blue things for him because everyone thinks he’s a girl-dog

Mica July 9, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Oh no I like the black shoes with it, I was just saying I like the almost all blue outfit! Sorry, I’m not the best with words. It’s why my blog posts have so little written in them ;)

The car lead is a great idea too, and maybe Theo needs a little bow tie or top hat so people know he is a boy! haha! :) He’s so cute :)

Lol I know what you mean :D Theodore has a lilac studded (Cat) collar :D
