If you observed carefully, this diamond print monochrome ensemble is a two-piece, not a dress. Dress them up for Derby Day with a striking fascinator and sturdy heels, or down with a Tee or denim cut-offs, you’ll still manage to channel the 60s mod girl look thanks to the boxy shapes. I’m a bit of a late adopter of the waist-tie look because this previous winter of saccharine indulgences has left me devoid of a waist. So why draw attention to the problem? But thanks to a recent cold whereby all foods tasted like nothing I’ve managed to kick my sugar addiction. Well almost, over the weekend at Once the Musical I still managed to enjoy a Conoisseur icecream, or two, or three. Sweet lyrics such as “And I love her so / I wouldn’t trade her for gold / I’m walking on moonbeams” and “I don’t know you, but I want you all the more for that” in smooth Irish melodies continue to permeate my mind. That, and the Murray River salted caramel with Macadamia ice cream.
