Watch list

Jacqui E “Kristen Colour Block Dress” AUD $149.95

After the other day’s posts on spring brights, particularly emerald and cobalt, I’ve been seeing lovely blues, greens, yellows and fuschias everywhere. (As well as pastels, which I mostly find pretty on other people.) However, I have a holiday coming up and am being all fiscally responsible by refusing to buy anything non-holiday essential. For me this month, insect repellent is in, and pretty new clothes are out.

Which was all well and good until I tried on this dress. It fit to a tee (not my usual experience at Jacqui E, their usual fit model must be differently-proportioned to me), looks to be good as both workwear and casual attire, and has all my favourite shades of blue. Sure, prints are being touted as overtaking colourblocking this season, but I’m one for the classic, non-fussy look.

So this one’s on my watch list. If it’s still around after my trip, it may well be mine. (And perhaps on sale by then, too?)
