White: Cool or Not?


A few years ago, in a fit of something I can only call 'an acute mental disorder' in retrospect, I got a white dress... I say I must have been out of my mind because white is most definitely not my colour (have you seen how pale I am??!! And this is me when I'm "tanned"...), and I've never had anything white. No, wait, there was a white jacket, years ago... A funny thing, whenever I was wearing it, I somehow managed to pour my coffee all over it, every single time... Since then I've only had white T-shirts to wear with something more colourful.

But about the dress... I had this idea that I needed a white sundress, having seen so many people look fantastic in their white beach dresses or romantic lace... As I said, I must have been out of my mind:  I don't do romantic... I am the most unromantic woman on the planet (and my husband would surely agree), and even my wedding dress wasn't white.

I don't wear this dress very often, usually only when the weather gets hot. I love Vivienne Westwood dresses for hot weather: they're made of cotton and can be washed, the skirt is wide (as much as I love fitted dresses, in hot weather I need something loose and not so close to the body...). Now, you're probably wondering "how many Vivienne Westwood dresses does this woman have?" The answer is 4, the blue one I showed you a week ago, a pink one and a black one.

What's your hot weather style?

  1. I'm pretty much translucent most of the time, but I still enjoy wearing white, although I do get that coffee problem too! I love this dress and the neckline and bow is really pretty :D

    1. Thank you for your nice comment. I always think that my face could benefit from a bit of colour around it, so I tend to avoid white (and black).

  2. What a famous white dress!
    (I'm too such a white woman in my skin...and I like parasols )

    1. Parasols are a must for people with very fair skin... I use mine quite a bit.

    1. Maybe it's the 'romantic' I struggle with... Although I like this dress whenever I do wear it.

    1. Thank you, Sacramento. I guess I always think that white is not a good colour for someone pale...
