A little late It was a Bank Holiday weekend and so
you get to see my lovely new rain coat that I obtained by a serendipitous Internet search. Not hugely flattering now I see it, but I love the colour and shape so who cares.
This is a fairly standard outfit for work, The skirt is lovely and one of those pieces that never dates. I never go in Laura Ashley but caught a glimpse of this through the window. Their clothes are over priced but this was in the sale. If you have watched this blog for some time I did post a picture of it a couple of years ago as one of the classic pieces fit even for Paris, which is one of the places it has been. (This is the outfit that needed a brighter piece of jewellery to lift it a bit.)
Again some older pieces getting an outing. The jumper is in fact a hoodie, it is one of the few pieces that has aged well from Jigsaw in the days when they did XL. What's funny is that Kitty wears this too, only on her it is a VERY loose and slouchy. The skirt I LOVE but the fabric is cheap. It has a wonderful stiff shape and was a bargain from Asda. If I ever managed to travel east I would take this and get a wizard tailor to replicate it in a dozen different coloured glorious silk organza's.
Black is difficult to photograph, this is a new top from a little boutique in Southwold, it has lovely silk organza rosettes around the neck and I wore it with my favourite Cath Kidston necklace a plus a double breasted skirt from H&M and red tights to support Labour in the election.
Felt so ill but made an effort, this cardie/top is from COS I had previously worn it over a longer tunic but the photographs made me realise it did not work and in fact looked better layered over a shorter top. Worn with narrow trousers I really like it. (This too needed some Carnelian or Amber beads.)
So far I have not replicated an outfit, and as a test I am aiming not to do so for the next 3 weeks!
