The title of this post, War Of Roses, screamed for the scattered rosy pattern over the white dress as well as over the black lace on the sleeves of the blazer. The idea came into sight especially when BBC introduced a historical documentary on The Real White Queen and Her Rivals, and not forgetting the drama series, The White Queen. The inspiration did not stop right there. We went as far as reading more articles regarding the convoluted family tree and the development of each characters. This would go on and on. Let’s conduct a dissection of the outfit!
Don’t take this by surprise. We did literally cut a pair of leggings(lace), sewing each on the sleeves. Perhaps the only part we use our diy skills…
No longer call it the war of roses. Should we call it the war of the weather???
The set- Green crawlers, Square Trellis Panels
References- The White Queen; Philippa Gregory
Outfit- Blazer(H&M),Leggings (Claire), Dress (independent boutique)
Make-up: Reddish- Pink eyeshadow, light pink lip gloss
Accessories: Wedges (New look), Umbrella
Good Points- The scenery fits well with the outfit. The back of the blazer has an architectural value shaped of a mosque. We so love the gargantuan pockets on both sides of the blazer. The colours of the dress blend perfectly that somehow balance with the rosy lace.
Bad Points- The dress is not the main showcase of the outfit because the dress alone is not as outstanding as when it is paired together with the blazer. The dress does not allow a great movement so it tends to crease a lot.
