Cream & gold

Cream and gold is always a winning combo in my book, especially for the summer. It works for weddings, the races, garden parties, hen-do's - the possibilities are endless.

A little chazzing expedition at the weekend unearthed these two cream and gold numbers.

The dress is actually culottes - very cool, and a real saving grace on blustery days when you're event is outside. Am pondering with the idea of turning it into a skirt though, as the dress is a little see-through and may need an underskirt (unless I can find an "under-culottes"?). And I may change the original buttons from white to gold. And add a gold belt. As I said before, the options with cream and gold combos are endless - it's the "go with anything" pairing - especially a tan.

And the bag is in great condition, and an excellent size - I often find clutch bags way too small. The label inside shows that it's made by Saxone - a long-lost hero of the British high street. And the quality is great - lovely leather, with an embossed pattern.

These two finds look good together, so I think I may have stumbled across an instant outfit here. Good work.
