Neon Pink and Orange | SS19 Trends | Bold Winter outfit

Neon Pink and Orange striped Topshop dress | Fake Fabulous | Winter Outfit

This outfit is not for the fainthearted!
It's bright and bold.
Psychedelic 1990s meets the '70s, meets a potential migraine.

And I LOVE it!

When I wore this outfit to work I received plenty of comments.

Some were genuine compliments.
"OMG... I love your dress!"
Some were knee-jerk shock reactions.
"Wow! Thats bright!!"
Some were simply cheeky.
"Are you not getting enough attention or something?"

None of which affected how I felt about wearing this outfit.

As I always say...

It doesn't matter a jot what other people think of you (or your clothing choices) it's how YOU feel about YOU that counts.
In fact, it's ALL that counts.

Do you agree?

Back to this dress...
I've had my eye on it for months but knew it would end up in the sale at some rock-bottom price.
It's a very niche item.
Right up my alley but I don't think the alley is too crowded!

So I've waited and here it is.
Mine for 70% off.
Hello my lovely!

I'm also looking forward to wearing this dress in the warmer months as it has a lovely open back.
A little bit sexy (it's still allowed over 40 you know!) but demure enough not to look too flashy.

Today, I'm wearing it with a bright orange poloneck... plus a few extra hidden layers... and why not?

I felt like a beacon of light on a winter's day.
Wearing bright colours, either clothing or makeup, really does improve your mood and sense of wellbeing.

Get your colour on!

  4. Delightful. While the colors are lovely bright shades, the dress and knit underneath are very sleek and traditional, as are the boots. Perfect combination. You make me think of sugarplums and flowers and tropical birds.

    1. You too Sheila!
      Feeling good is all that counts.
      Worrying about the opinions of others is pointless.
      It doesn't matter what we wore there would ALWAYS be someone who didn't like it or thought it looked odd/boring/unflattering.
      Clothes are for enjoying!

  8. This is a color combination that warms the cockles of my heart, brightens my spirits and can evoke a smile on a grumpy winter face. I love you more for wearing this dress in mid January. Some of your coworkers don't realize what a gift you are!! :-)
