I thought I might focus on accessories this week, when all is said and done black is black and as it is so bloody hard to photograph the images can look a little dull..OK Dull!
I dream of working in a room with some element of heat so I do not permanently have to look like an onion.
I love these very, very old GAP trousers, not terribly flattering but quite quirky in length and fabric. I do not often wear shiny but I like these with the jumper which is self striped with a shiny viscose. I have loved and worn this necklace a lot, although I make quite a lot of jewellery it is quite nice to try something different and Toast do some lovely beaded ropes like this. This is a favourite because of the links.
The shoes are from a little shop in Southwold. Superficially very comfortable but after 10 min.s they pinch so I only wear them at work. Why? because they make my feet look tiny and I just love to look down and not be greeted by bear paws every day.
Skirt Miss Selfridge
I wear the individual items a lot but not together this way before. You will see this skirt crop up time and time again, I love it, it is layers of very, very thin silk, it was originally a puff ball style and I found it for £12 unloved and realised if I cut the silk away from the lining I would have a lovely skirt. It is now well over 5 years old which for me is almost vintage! I have worn this cardie a lot, as for me it echoes my Yohji vibe.
Necklace Noa Noa
Love this silhouette it is one of my favourites, worn with the necklace I bought on Saturday it really works. These pumps were a bargain as they have red lining which peeps out, I keep them at school as being fabric they will not last 2 minutes in the rain.
Cardie +J Uniqlo
Skirt Betty Jackson @ Debenhams
Boots Some shop in Southworld
Necklace by me
Looks quite drab but the light I used has bleached the colours, the skirt is a lovely boiled wool, green and warm with the cashmere cardie.
These boots were a bargain at £20 from a tiny boutique in Southwold they are unbelievably comfortable, I could have bought them in black but I was determined to break the mould and go for something different. The necklace is a heady mix of citrine smoky quartz and glass beads.
