How To Talk To The Boys Of Summer

August 22nd, 2011 by Selise

So…I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear this outfit every day, forever. Only, I’m not wearing it right now. So,then, I guess I’ll wear it a lot alright? OK.

This is what I rocked at Robba & Skentie’s engagement party on Saturday night. The floral dress I had in mind didn’t work out so I spent hours at Chermside only to wear something I already owned. Which is cool.

You know I actually planned this outfit way back when we lived at the old apartment. One night I was feeling particularly inspired and wrote a bunch of outfit combinations down on the back of a blue index card. This being one of them.

Of course I didn’t know about my Cherry Red Doc Martens then. I actually said to Luke before we left for the party that I felt bad for my other Docs. They’re not getting much of a look in at the moment. The Cherry Red is just so flattering on my skin colour…of super pale. Heh. But it’s OK, we had a chat, I’ll take them out for a spin soon.

So I think you should know – I had 2 themes/songs in mind when I got dressed. How Do You Talk To An Angel by The Heights (though when do I not get dressed with that in mind…). And Boys of Summer by Don Henley. I went with a strong lip/eye make up combo a la 1980’s – hello fuchsia YSL lipstick!

All in all it was a fantastic night (congratulations again guys!) and I’m stoked to have found a new favourite outfit. Yay everything!

P.S I know I said I was going to share my 3rd exciting thing with you last week but…I can’t just yet! I’m so sorry. Patience is not one of my virtues and I kinda jumped the gun. I promise it’s coming soon and I double promise it’ll totally be worth the wait!
