Style Chat : True Romance with Mel
Posted on 06 July 2018
Part of my stay-home-Mum/work from home seamstress lifestyle means I don’t want a wardrobe full of special occasion pieces that never get worn.
Because lets face it, I don’t get out as much as I would like to (thanks kids!). But I still love the odd date night with hubby or catch up with the girls.
So everything I make gets the “sneakers or heels” test. Can I wear it with sneakers and look fab for my mum-days and can the same thing work in heels for a night out?
And the results for the True Romance are heck yes! Even paired with a basic tube skirt can have me from cool mum-on-the-run to date night with a quick shoe change.
And check out that beautiful blousing and banded finish. My muffin top tummy is nowhere in sight. Thanks Tall Hipster length!
I would have to say though that my favourite outfit is a True Romance, Heartlight Skirt combo.
It seriously just makes me feel so fabulously chic, no matter where I wear it.
Worn here with my heeled ankle boots for a dressy casual look.
Both tops were made using a fluid poly elastane knit that drapes beautifully on the body and swishes over my skin without being clingy.
Already a much loved addition to my wardrobe!
