Outfit: Orange & Polka Dots


As someone who previously hated orange, I am certainly embracing this bold stand out shade now. This is the same dress which I posted a couple of months ago here but this time I decided to go for double orange; I like the lighter coral shade of the cardigan against the brighter orange of the dress. The dress is a piece which my dear friend had made for me in Hong Kong last year. It was awhile ago now but I still really appreciate the kind gesture and the opportunity to design clothes myself. I have three orange pieces in my wardrobe in total now. It started off with my orange Review Australia dress with white lace overlay that I posted here; it was great to get used to wearing orange after not doing so for so many years. But now I am definitely ready to showcase the colour in its entirety. The cardigan is one of my most recent purchases and it’s from Alannah Hill. I’d admired this cardigan for so many months but simply couldn’t justify the price tag. I wanted to wait for it to come on sale and I’m surprised that it’s still at full price. I eventually bought it in the 3 for 2 sale at Alannah Hill which ended up being a good deal. I adore the eyelet design, the crop length and the coral orange shade. I own a large number of cardigans and orange was the only colour missing from my collection. I love wearing it with so many of my dresses. Another stand out part of this outfit is my shoes but the pictures certainly don’t do them justice. They are rainbow glitter and the most incredibly unique shoes I’ve ever seen. They are from the UK brand Faith which I didn’t know about until recently. Faith has a number of other amazing glitter shoes too. These were a Christmas present from my sister and I was so impressed that she found them. I’ll show you more of them later as these shoes definitely deserve their own post.

  1. Ah, really love this dress so much! Orange is actually one of my favourite colours ๐Ÿ™‚ My wedding colours were orange & pink. I would just love to get an orange polka dot dress, but hardly anyone makes them!!



  2. I used to be skeptical about orange too, but I eventually grew to like it, it's such a fun summery color! You wear this dress so well, it looks wonderful. I also love the two shades or orange you have going on.


  3. Imogen, I have been thinking about you… I really need to follow you elsewhere so I can check in with you from time to time… I am on most every social media … let me know xox

    I love the orange on you, you look do adorable… of course you always adorable. You have such a great figure and the dresses you choose are so flattering.

  4. That coral coloured Alannah Hill cardigan is beautiful and looks fabulous styled with your custom made orange polka dot dress! I'm sure you will be wearing that Alannah Hill cardigan a lot. It would look fabulous styled with some duck egg blue outfit pieces as well.

  5. Imogen, your orange cardigan is very pretty with the eyelet. It looks great with the polka dot dress. And those rainbow shoes are delightful. I LOVE ORANGE! I heard one time that the color ORANGE is the happiest color, and I really think that's true. I would like to get an orange top for spring now. :~)

    love, ~Sheri
