Red Accents & Winter

This black and white dress was acquired back in the 90's (which means it is practically vintage now!) and I've been wearing it once or twice a year since then. I think it's not a frequently worn dress because it needs ironing, and also because I'm not always in the mood of wearing a bold print in black and white, even if it's one of my favourite colour combos. I love monochrome with some red accents. But last years I've been embracing a more colourful attitude!

Este vestido blanco y negro lleva conmigo desde los años 90 (lo que significa que ahora mismo ¡es pŕacticamente vintage!) y lo he estado llevando como mucho un par de veces al año. Supongo que no me lo pongo más a menudo porque necesita plancha y también poque no siempre estoy de humor para estampados tan fuertes en dos colores tan contrastados, aunque es una de mis combinaciones favoritas. Me encanta el clásico blancoynegro con toques de rojo. Pero estos últimos años me he vuelto hacia una actitud más multicolor.

I wore this same dress for a walk next day. Only that I picked a different coat, black tights instead of red ones and my leopard scarf. Kinda subtle. ;D
Me puse el mismo vestido para dar una vuelta al día siguiente. Sólo que elegí un abrigo diferente, medias negras en vez de rojas y mi pañuelo de leopardo rojo. De lo más sutil ;D
- coat, clearance sale (old) / abrigo, de una liquidación-outlet

I'm wearing a rubber glove to cover my wristband, to keep things clean, as I use plenty of hand sanitizer.

Lo que llevo en la mano es un guante de goma sobre la muñequera ortopédica, porque uso a menudo gel hidroalcohólico y es un pringue.

This is a salad we had for dinner: spinach leaves (I bought them fresh and had to wash them, which is tedious!), tomato, smashed avocado mixed with chopped onion and lemon juice, and a chicken breast sautéed and sliced. Something simple!
Esta es una ensalada que hicimos para la cena: hojas de espinaca (frescas, tuve que lavarlas y es algo tedioso!), tomate, y aguacate machacado mezclado con cebolla picadita y zumo de limón. También lleva pechuga de pollo salteada y troceada. Simple y variado!

Hope you're keeping yourselves safe and as fabulous as possible!

Espero que todos estéis bien y que sigáis tan estupendos como sea posible.

  1. It's just gone 7.30am and I'm already drooling over your dinner!
    Love that 1990s dress worn with the red and that gorgeous chevron coat. The kids do call 1990s "vintage" which makes me laugh then I remember it was almost thirty years ago!!! xxx

    1. I'm still amazed by people considering 80's as not only vintage but also really Old!. I think that 90's vintage could be hard to find, as it was the time when fast fashion became popular.

  2. I love red, black and white together! Great look.


  3. What a fabulous dress, Monica, although I am definitely hearing you on the ironing :-) A monochrome look with splashes of red is always great, but especially so at this time of year, I think. That chevron coat is to die for, and so is that delicious looking salad! Our temperatures are on the up again, which is a bit of a bore. I want them to go down so that I can wear a certain scarf and beret ;-) Enjoy your weekend! Besos xxx

    1. Lovely to hear that you like this dress and coat. I still consider my chevron coat as too classic and a little bit boring, but I'm realising that it can be jazzed up easily!.
      It's never the right weather when one is looking forward to wear something, isn't it?, mwhaha!

  4. I'm wearing black, white and red today, too! We're twins!

    Ironing is a bugger but what a lovely dress; I loved it with the little red cardi over it and what a magnificent set of necklaces your wore - talk about statement necklaces! I also love your striped jacket; it always looks so chic and stylish.

    Have a lovely weekend and stay safe,

    1. Totally agree about ironing!
      Glad that we share our love for red accessories and necklaces, I'm a huge fan of yours!.
      This striped jacket is becoming a real workhorse, it rocks any simple outfit!

  5. I don't enjoy cleaning spinach either!
    What glorious outfits you put together with that dress.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. I hate cleaning almost every vegetable, but spinach leaves are specially tedious to clean.
      Glad that you like!

  6. I'm a huge fan of that wonderful 90s black and white dress, Monica! It looks amazing on you, and I like how very small changes make it look like an entirely different outfit! That zigzag coat is fabulous!

    Mmmm, your salad looks so good!

    1. Thanks, dear Sheila!, it's a lovely compliment coming from you!.
      Totally agree about the coat, and it was a bargain!

  7. Such a beautiful red, white and black outfit. Very elegant! The dress is a dream.

  8. Oooh, that salad looks really delicious.

    It's so weird owning stuff that people now call vintage, isn't it? I have a few pieces from the 90s myself. It's strange to think they're older than some of my friends.

    1. mwahah, this is something I've realised recently and amazed me. But this also means that we have some young friends!
