E’s lookbook ‘Browns and florals’

Lookbook:

Jacket: Primark

Belt unknown

Bag vintage

Dress: Matalan

Boots: Dune

A long brown jacket belted with a brown belt worn over a red and white floral dress with a vintage, tan bag, and tan boots.

Cohesive and autumnal.

I have raved about the dress in another blog. So let me just say that what attracted me to the dress was the pattern but also the colour combination. Off-white background with shades of red and cool brown floral pattern, easy to style either summer or autumn. My autumnal version consists of a cool brown long jacket, to emphasise the silhouette belted, interesting vintage bag and trusted Dune boots. All cohesive and autumnal.

Dress: ASOS

Bag vintage

Bracelet unknown

Sandals: Primark

A navy blue, silky dress with black lace edging worn with black statement earrings, black, vintage bag, and black sandals.

A boudoir day look. The dress has the most stunning midnight blue colour. It has got lace and let’s be honest it looks like underwear. And still, I intend to wear it during the day. The length is perfect, the colour is perfect but the dress is too bulky on the top. I have done some DIY magic but I can not go any further as it will not get over my body. But I’m not put off by this. To complement its sexiness I have added long dangly earrings, black flat sandals with enormous bows and a slinky little black bag.

The usefulness of alterations.

What you are looking at is not one dress, but two dresses combined into one, It is not easy to find a good long sleeve dress in an interesting pattern for a reasonable amount of money. The original version had one substantial flow. Every time a have raised my hands, the hem of the dress would rise to expose the underskirt and making it look ridiculous. But since the dress was on sale, I have purchased two of them and have created the third tier in the skirt of the dress from the other one. The job itself wasn’t too difficult and the result is pleasing to the eye. I have combined the dress with a vintage belt, vintage bag and same colour sandals. I am happy now.

A pastel green, patterned, cotton dress worn with a nude Casstanier type of sandals, nude bag, belt, and earrings.

Old dress new way

Having a classical, cotton boring dress gives lots of opportunities to try and reinvent the way it is worn every season. It is a very granny, no offense to grannies, type of dress that to give it a new breath of life requires modern accessories. I am wearing the dress with Casstanier like wedges, a very on-trend neutral belt, and a modern bag and earrings. It is the accessories that make the outfit work.

Coat: Primark

T-shirt: Select

Dress: Patauchka

Boots: Dune

A brown faux suede coat worn with a mustard colour T-shirt, brown dress with pom-poms, brown boots and pom-pom, yellow earrings.

More styling of brown coat.

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.

E’s lookbook ‘More latex and velour’

Lookbook:

Cardigan: River Island

Dress: Stradivarius

Leggings: Edge Street

Bag unknown

Boots: Linzi

A long, burgundy cardigan worn with dusky pink, velour dress, burgundy, latex leggings, burgundy. boots and a neutral colour clutch bag.

More ideas for latex leggings.

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.

Chartreuse, summer dress worn with an army green polo neck, army green trousers, brown long coat and brown, vintage bag.Outfit ideas for real people, styling on a budget

Still wearing summer pieces.

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.

Lookbook:

Dress: White Stuff

Brooch unknown

Bag: Rowallan

Trainers: Primark

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.

E’s lookbook ‘Brown and aqua’

Lookbook:

Dress: Patouchka

Sandals: Primark

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.
