Once again I appear to have gone from lightweight jacket straight to the duck down puffa coat with no degrees of wool coat in between.
This cardie did come in a very garish mustard which I noticed another outfit blogger had bought but she is blonde and somehow it worked better on her, I of course love nothing better than a grey cardie. This one ticks so many boxes I wish I had bought two as I like my clothes to stay looking pristine for a year, but I have already worn this to death at the weekend I love it so much.
Whenever I wear this dress now I think of Belgian Waffle's rant about Japanese asymmetry. I saw someone wearing this dress at Frieze Art Fair she had layered it over a long sleeved top, this is a Uniqlo thermal one which works well. I am making more of an effort to layer below rather than shroud above with loose cardies, it creates a better silhouette and work wise I drag far less in my wake!
By now my reserves are low so very slouchy, that said I still feel it echoes my Yohji mantra.
ThursdayDress Phase Eight
Not much Yohji here but I have loved this dress so much, it makes you feel quite girly to have so much fabric swishing around.
This is about as close as I get to echoing that Stella McCartney silhouette, again one of those 'wearing it..' blogger's had bought the same trousers, they are the only item I have purchased from the normally very productive Zara. I have found the prices higher but quality lower and the styles verging on frump. Another outlet bites the dust joining such luminaries as Monsoon, Jigsaw, Kew, Coast etc etc etc..Mmmm maybe I should check out this ACNE store!
