Add a cashmere scarf and jacket for the commute to work! I love the floaty layered look

Happy Thursday all

Classic

One of my favourite little tops from Jaspal with a classic knee length black Zara shirt and peep toes.

Colour Clash

I suddenly realised that I haven’t mixed it up in a while. My version of mixing it up is not exactly punk rock, but I combine colours and fabrics that I wouldn’t ordinarily. This involved lots of trial and error. Lots of ghastly mirror reflections. But eventually you get something so mis-matched that is works.

Stripes and Colour

I love how the naughty luminous tangerine is peeking out from underneath this little jacket, like it has an attitude of its own.

Cropped jacket – local designer (similar). Lumo T – Gap. Black Mini – Mango similar. Peep Toes – Nine West Flute. Bag – Kate Spade old collection (same colour, new style) Turquoise earrings – local market (similar)

 

 

 

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. – Cecil Beaton

Karen Millen Shocking Pink

When I first saw this frock from across the department store floor, my heart skipped a beat. Sparks flew. It was love at first sight. I tried it on and it felt like I was the only person ever meant to wear it. That is what a dream dress does to you. It is life altering. Sigh.

Pink Dress – Karen Millen (old collection). Heels – Aldo.

City Shorts

The more you wear shorts with heels, the more you can extend your wardrobe options. I maintain they should not be too short, or it looks skanky (like the woman I saw today with half her bum cheek falling out! Revolt!) I am slightly addicted to belts, all colours and most widths, especially thin and patent in bold tones. They can lift a plain look instantly.

Black city shorts – Zara, old, similar. Turquoise linen T – Zara. Cropped jacket – Alldress, similar Forever21. Belt – local sale, similar JCrew. Black peep toes – Nine West. Bracelets – Kate Spade (pink) and local market (white) Nails – Revlon new collection
