Girly I most definitely am not. I have spent my entire life since the age of 15 stomping around in DM’s and other chunky footwear and am definitly not someone you will catch shopping in heels and cute handbag on a Saturday afternoon. I like chunky and I like geometric. I like colour blocking and I like graphic shapes. But every now and again something catches my eye that’s the polar opposite to my usual sartorial attitude and I end up donning something like this.
Not only is the skirt floral- its frilly at the hem. Not only is the skirt frilly but the blouse is too. All the way around- 360 degrees. Not only that but I’m wearing heels to boot. As if all that wasn’t enough I worked hard to get this blouse, messaging Simply Be HQ when it sold out online, calling my not very local store and interrogating the staff, then finally going out of my way to pick it up in store. So enamoured am I with this blouse that I bought another frill shirt a couple of weeks later. Is this the end of the DM boot wearing season of my life? Ha- not on your nelly.
Skirt- Evans (Clements Ribeiro Swan from several seasons ago thought I bought it 2 weeks ago at the bargain price of £8!!)
Shoes- Evans from around 2008
I just cannot explain the joy this coat gives me. I have no words.
Lots of vintage in all sizes, handmade items too. Vintage bags and shoes- come along, it would be great to see you there!
Very expensive. But look at it…
I said LOOK AT IT
Isn’t it a dream!
Reminds me of Roksanda Ilincic.
What a glorious, glorious day today has turned out to be. So much so that I put aside by usual DM boot and jeans combo and stepped into my brand spanking Chubby Checker skirt. I wore my new Simply Be shoes and my shades and nobody could tell me A THING as I sashayed through the Midlands streets like a technicolour diva.
If there was anyone who didn’t approve of me trying to outshine the sun they kept their opinions to themselves. I was far too busy looking radiant to notice anyhow.
Tee: Evans (old)
