Barbie is back in town, and she is all grown up. Remember the I wore the other day? As you can see, I’m modernising that pink outfit and bringing a cocktail attire to a new level this time. Read making the cocktail outfit look chic. As said, I’m swapping my Barbie pink dress and heels from the other day for an orange dress and flats. Yes, flats and orange. Because orange is 2019 chicest colour.
ORANGE COCKTAIL ATTIRE
Honestly, I don’t know which cocktail outfit I prefer — the Barbie pink outfit from the other day (to check later), or this orange outfit I’m wearing here. One thing is sure, even though these two cocktail dresses look similar at first glance, I feel chicer wearing this orange cocktail dress. I guess flats bring that sort of chic attitude to any outfit. Besides, an orange outfit is already an elevated outfit by itself. And only one step away from being chic.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying an orange cocktail dress is chic by itself, merely because orange is 2019 IT colour. Because it’s not. Admittedly, the fashionable status helps. But more do the flats.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE

ORANGE COCKTAIL DRESS
My orange cocktail dress comes from Juicy Couture. And I bought three years ago. It could be in the USA or in Canada; I don’t know for sure where but somewhere in America.
Whatsoever, you can’t get the same orange cocktail dress I’m wearing here anymore. It’s sold out. However, I found a similar one over . And, yes with the enhanced stitches, like those on my cocktail dress, too.
Ending with the star or should I write the saviours of this outfit. The mules. You saw me wearing this studded black mules many times so far. But this might be the last time, as I’m finally getting the same mules as you see in the collage above. Those Malone Soulieres mules are genuinely a must-have pair of flats for any businesswoman, boss babe as we like to say.
Not that there is anything wrong with my Queen Bee mules, but the Malone Soulieres mules are simply more glamorous and wearable. Ps. Don’t click if you wear size 36 EUR or 36.5 EUR. At least not before you see me wearing these mules on my .
