A white puffer coat worn with a white jumper, white earrings, beige trousers, cream trainers and rose-gold bag.

White and rose gold enchantment

this might be, but practical it is not. Winter white is very in vogue. It looks exceptionally fresh and one does stand out in a crowd of sensibly dressed in all black people. But only if you like drama. The drama of avoiding all puddles especially near the roads, all friendly dogs and basically not being able to risk sitting on any surface in case of transferring the dirt onto yourself. Jokes aside I do fancy this look. Casual but different, comfortable but elevated. Colours do all the work, or rather lack of them? And it’s not boring as all garments have different textures.

E’s lookbook ‘Shorts a’la Chanel’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Jumper: H&M

Bracelets unknown

Shorts: Primark

Boots: Primark

A'la Chanel shorts with pearl buttons worn with a white high neck, cropped jumper, pearl earrings and pearl bracelets

Perfect a’la Chanel shorts.

That is exactly what I thought when I saw them in the shop. Lined, washable with actually not bad pearl accent buttons, well cut and flattering, I am immensely impressed especially that they came from Primark.

For a while, I was also on a hunt for a cropped white jumper. Most jumpers nowadays seem to be oversized or end mid-hip, the worst possible place which makes you look short and boxy. But eventually, I have found one that will go with everything high waisted that I possed.

The boots are old but unusual. Loosely woven and almost summery. The earring and the bracelets have obviously pearls theme to match the buttons.

That was my Christmas outfit since Christmas was cancelled and we were just staying home.

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 ‘Layer cake’

Lookbook:

Earrings DIYed

Blouse: TwoFourTwo

Trousers: Primark

Belt unknown

Sandals: Select

When I look at this image I think layer cake. Each colour is separated by the other going from the earrings to the sandals. The earrings are DIYed from a necklace that I did not like. The blouse I have altered to fit me better. And the belt in the trousers I have replaced with a more suitable one. It’s all in the detail.

E’s lookbook ‘Autumnal birds’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Blouse: Monsoon

Trousers: Attitude by Renee

Sandals: Select

This is a bit autumnal look. The colours are not so vivid. The blouse served me well over the years, despite the statement sleeves, that are specific to a certain era, the blouse has this boho vibe that I like. Paired with trousers that were gifted and I find the colour challenging, but the fit is impeccable. White sandal as a homage to almost gone summer and statement earrings because I barely wear them.

So, I’m stuck at home. It’s pandemic out there and for the greater good, I have to stay home, so I’m doing. But if I was allowed outside that’s probably what I would be wearing. You have probably spotted a trend here: shorts cut out of trousers that I already have and not very often wear. This pair of trousers is made from quite thick fabric and the material didn’t fold nicely at the hem, so the trousers got hardly ever worn. But we do not like such items in our wardrobes, they have to perform or go or get altered. After some DIY I can wear shorts when it’s still warm but I’m also hoping to wear them with tights when it gets colder. Today I went all yellow, lighter with the top, and stronger with the accessories.

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.

Earrings: Primark

Top: Primark

Trousers: Stradivarius

Wristlet: Julien McDonald

Brogues: Primark

When you need something fresh but neutral also, this combination seems perfect. I have added some silver because it wouldn’t be otherwise. But it’s always good to have something beige and pale grey in your summer wardrobe. Also, I have never worn these earrings since I have bought them. Every time I have put them on, something was ‘off’ about them, until I have figured out that they were too long for my face, so a bit of scissors action and now they fit just fine.

E’s lookbook ‘Navy and pink’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Self-made

Top unknown

Denim: Dele

Bracelet unknown

Trainers: Primark

Bag: Rowallan

This top was someone’s sweat and tears, not that not all clothes are made this way. This top was hand made by someone and then abandoned and then found by me and quite adored actually. It is that colour blue that suits most people and its cropped, so its perfect for hotter days. I’m wearing it with similar blue jeans and some pink as a statement colour as there is pink in the pattern.

E’s lookbook ‘Emerald and gold oriental top’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Top: Galliano

Trousers: Topshop

Bag: Warehouse

Trainers: Primark

Can not pass a good bargain when I see one. I always buy things out of season. When I saw this top I had to get it. The colour is perfection and the fact that it is a semi-transparent makes it perfect for summer. My uniform: a good top, trousers, comfortable shoes, and some accessories.
