A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Grey Dress, Red Mules and Other Colors in Between

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.  I am seriously feeling the love in the blogosphere, this month I have been nominated again for a liebster award and the versatile blogger award.  Just a quick mention though, I will tell you all about them, who nominated me and what interesting stuff I am happy to share about myself in another post.

Lets talk about my schoolish mini grey dress from Cue.  I styled it last winter in this post and this is my take two on le blog.  Said dress has been everywhere man but feels pretty chuffed to be appearing on mama's blog again.  I have styled it with these pretty red mules from Wittner.  You like? 

My dear readers, again is not a bad thing, in fact I believe it brings out the creativity in you.  I have been reading a few blogs lately and most of them felt bad repeating items of clothing on the blog. Eiiiiiiii, if you ask me, I would love to own a drive through wardrobe but, there is always the but, isn't it?  But, so many things come in to play, with that many clothing items.  I will have to do double folding after washing or hire someone to do it for me (wake up Elsie).   Even now with a shared wardrobe, I know, I know,  its not equally shared.  I think I heard the hubs saying that he's only got something like 20% of the wardrobe now, I think its too much work to keep it tidy.  Can you believe that?   

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading.  Let me know what you think in the comments box and have a lovely weekend.

  10. This grey tunic is great on you , especially with those fabulous red mules. I agree with you on repeating outfits , it does stir those creative juices.

  11. This dress is "schoolish" it has that sexy and yet modest vibe going on that I think is so versatile for any season. Love your mules and how you accessorized this look and congrats on the awards, well deserved!
