Pretty Things #7

This week’s pretty list is based around two colours: rose and gold.

The first thing on my pretty list is the brooch that inspired the whole list: Lip Service by Erstwilder.  At AU$34.95, it’s an affordable way to make any outfit a little more special.  Made of beautiful resins with multidimensional sheen, it’s a great quality item.

The perfect gold and rose coloured dress comes to us care of Lady Vintage London.  The Charlotte dress in antique rose has a scooped neckline, hidden pockets, a 1950s flared skirt and a self tie belt.  At AU$96.67, it’s a mid priced item that is good quality, with a well thought out design.


To add a little more gold to your outfit, try the Floozy bag by Sourpuss.  Available from Ms Katt’s Kustom House for AU$65, the Floozy comes in a range of colourways including black with gold bow.  This bag is just the right size to be your “every day carry”.bag 2

If you’re in the mood for a wiggle skirt rather than a circle skirt style,  you could try the beautiful Vivien of Holloway pencil skirt in Donegal Bronze, which is a lovely, golden bronze pencil skirt with a high waist and back button.  Made of a wool, acrylic and polyester mix, this pencil skirt can be dressed up or down to suit your mood.  At UK 59 pounds (about AU$125 at current exchange rates), it’s a high quality product at a reasonable price and is an item that will last and last.


Finally, you need a rose coloured lipstick to match your rose coloured lipstick brooch!  Previously reviewed by Vera Gin Vintage, the Australis Velourlips range are cheap and very cheerful, at AU$10.49 each.  In the newly expanded colour range you can find such perfect shades as the rosy red Bar-tha-lona and the rosy pink Mal-i-boo.


Do you have a favourite colour combination for spring?
