The HMS Pinafore

“Where are you going in that Beverly Hillbilly dress?”

“Are you going to become a cowboy?”

“Are you going to the Midwest?

“Are you about to ride a horse?”

All questions I’ve had to field from a family member who has about as much style as ball of string but seems to think his non- fashion sense holds sway with me, and fancies himself as a bit of a comedian to boot *side eye*. I’m well impressed with my new Beverly Hillbilly dress thank you very much. I’ve been looking at it on the Asos Curve site for a couple of weeks but didn’t buy it as I felt I might look a little ridiculous in a pinafore as I left primary school a long time ago. After two weeks of doubt I came across this photo on Instagram (@girlsofplenty) which convinced me that it is possible to wear a pinafore as a grown woman and still look like an adult..

I was sold. I teamed it with a Beloved Endeavour shirt (still available, only worn for the photo), Clarks sandals and accessorised with my new handmade brooch by Lolly from Lolly Loves Fatshion.

I can already see that I’m going to be wearing this all summer. It’s comfy, the fabric is sturdy, and if I decide that this is the year to become a cowgirl- I’m ready.

Hiding in Plain Sight

To quote Ice Cube- Today was a good day.

The first time my eyes beheld this colourful camo dress was at the Evans Spring Summer Preview and I knew immediately that I was going to own it. Bought online last week, collected in store yesterday, and on my bod this morning. No dust is settling on this number. No fussy accessories needed apart from my day to day silver fly studs by Silver Spot Studio

flyme,

…and my black New Look wedges from last year. The fabric is a knitted polyester/ lycra blend in a substancial weight that is smooth to touch. A quality YKK zip runs along the back (YKK is the bees knees of zippers if you didn’t already know) and there are contrast lace panels at the side front and back of the bodice. With the contrast panel across the middle too and the camo print there is a lot going on but it doesn’t feel fussy.

This has immediately become one of my favourite dresses. People around me- be prepared to be sick of seeing it.


Playtime Never Ends

pp2

Its been a while since I wrote an OOTD post, only because I’ve not bought much new clothing of late. However, this week’s purchase merits an OOTD revival. It’s not about the jacket, the dress or the shoes as they are all pieces that have been featured on here before. This outfit is all about the bag.

With the emergence of adult colouring books, flat t- bar shoes and a café where you can sample an endless variety of sugary cereals, it seems like there are many of us who reminisce about the days when our lives were  all about writing in pencil, Knock Down Ginger and Saturday morning cartoons. The appearance of Play Purse onto the accessories market is right on cue.

CYAN-PURSE ORANGE-PURSEa RED-PURSE YELLOW-PURSE

I cannot tell you the number of miniature pocket-money purses like this I had as a child. Each starting out with an abundance of  multi-coloured beads, and ending their lives picked bald and cast aside. To see this in adult size brings back many happy memories. Old school style in a big girl size. It even comes with extra beads in case I want to go the whole hog and relive the bead picking experience, but with a big girl price tag I doubt it.
