Cost per wear is getting already smaller on the brown coat. A useful item to have to wear with the 70-ties revival in fashion. Neutral colour that has got endless possibilities when it comes to styling it. This time I have used a summer dress with this fabulous pom-pom fringing that moves with every step. By using a mustard colour T-shirt I have transformed it into a skirt. Colour matching boots for that autumnal feel and pom-pom, yellow earrings to add movement on the top half of the outfit.
It is difficult to not to wear thick tights in autumn/ winter when temperatures start getting uncomfortable. The only problem is that tights look a bit aged. I think I have found a solution to this problem- latex leggings. Not only do they do the same job of protecting our skin, but also look modern and being very slippery they do eliminate wardrobe malfunctions. Again just like in the other outfit I have opted for mixing textures. Shiny latex, less shiny velour dress and matt knit in the cardigan. Colour palette is also rather monochromatic- shades of burgundy and dusky pink.
There we go again, stuck at home.No going out, but if I could that is exactly what I would be wearing. I’m obsessed with this chartreuse, silky dress. I’m still trying to wear summer pieces because soon all I will want to wear will be warm, chunky sweaters, scarfs and not much variety. Also making the most of the brown coat, that as predicted goes with most outfits. To make the dress more season-appropriate I’m wearing a warmer polo neck underneath it and also trousers. So the dress ends up being more of a tunic. The trick of layering. I was going to also add a belt but it looked a bit too much. Vintage bag to finish it off.
Is she wearing a broch? Yes. I know, even I’m surprised. The dress has an interesting material. full of round holes and the pattern is circles too. But from a distance, the dress looks rather plain. But thanks to that round, navy blue brooch the outfit gets this tad more interesting.
Like all best purchases, this dress was bought out of season, in the middle of winter. Thanks to its colour it can potentially be worn in winter too but at the moment I’m rocking it mid-summer. It has got interesting features but to distract from its rather boring colour I’m wearing it with some aqua statement earrings and just flat, tan sandals.
Well, just like everybody else I’m stuck inside. Not much of a birthday either. But if I was going out I might have possibly had worn this outfit. The jacket is from a charity shop a ‘no-name’ it looks tailor-made and a very good quality bought from sale for very little money. The dress is from a charity shop too. The bag is vintage.
Another look with the red coat. Despite being a bright colour, the coat seems to be very versatile. This time paired with a dress that I had for ages, the red in the flowers goes with the red coat and the rest of the accessories is brown. I have even dug out a necklace, in the shape of an elephant, that I used to wear when I was a teenager and that was a long time ago.
I think when trying to wear a mini dress with leggings but not to look too old fashioned is to wear it with shiny leggings. this pair I got of e-bay and it cost me around £5. Together with leather booties, it has a very modern, tough look. The belt is from patent leather and the coat is a wrap-up type.
A charity shop finds as usual. I was trying to find an outfit to be able to wear this fun necklace and I think I have finally found it. The dress is good for any dinner parties as it is roomy enough to hide a ‘food baby’ but with high heels doesn’t look too frompy.
That’s mine on a budget wedding guest outfit. Both clothing items were from charity shops. The dress I have bought in the middle of the winter, the best time to buy dresses, and the bolero I have got a day before the event, which was lucky. I think it all works because all items are in the same cool scale of browns and beiges.
