This satin tunic-dress has been in my wardrobe for many years (2009?), and it was always a little big on me, but I settled it wearing a vest over it, creating a more fitted look. Now, time has come to do something, purge it or fix it, and I've decided I like it enough to make an alteration. I've fitted it properly and removed a zip which was unuseful. Better than a new dress!
I'm becoming a huge fan of orange tights. Orange is the new orange!

Este vestido-túnica satinado lo tengo en el armario desde hace años (2009?), y siempre me estuvo un poco grande, pero lo arreglaba poniéndome un chaleco por encima para crear una silueta más ajustada. Pero ahora llegó el momento de tomar una decisión, deshacerme de él o reformarlo, y he decidido que me gusta lo bastante como para arreglarlo. Lo he estrechado un trozo grande y le he quitado una cremallera que no servía para nada. Mejor que nuevo!
Y me estoy volviendo muy fan de las medias color naranja. Ya sabéis, el naranja es el nuevo naranja!

  1. lucky you, you get to wear fall clothes. I'm still wearing summer

    1. oh yes, I lived in the south for many years and I remember that feeling of neverending summers!. But there's people who loves it!

  2. I love it!!
    Orange tights??...of course I approve (with bells on!)
    Your feather closure (on your cardigan) is a very cute touch AND those perfect with the orange tights.
    Orange IS most definitely the new orange.
    Fake Fabulous

  3. I have coat envy for your faux astrakhan coat! I love the shades of grey with the bursts of orange. Isn't it fab when you rediscover an item of clothing that you can make work and give a breath of fresh air to. And from one beret-loving lass to another, I adore your beret.

  4. Definitely! I love the ombre grey with the orange. Perfecto! xo Jazzy Jack

  5. Those tights are fantastic with the favourite tunic. A wonderful Autumnal outfit to brighten the dark evenings! xxx
