Today’s post is a OOTD staring my mum’s lovely green and navy tartan blazer from Banana Republic and my H&M pleather mini skirt. Then I added my vintage silk blouse (as always), a vintage navy felt trilby hat, Urban Outfitter’s brouges and Fossil tan clutch bag. I feel this look gives off a preppy school girl vibe but the pleather mini gives it that extra something. In addition, the rich tan shades I think really off-set the overall dark coloured look. Hope you like!- Enjoy!
About a month ago, I bought this gorgeous Zara Printed Floral blouse. If you read my blog regularly you will most definitely be aware with my obsession for shirts/blouses and this particular one is fabulous. The large majority of my ever-expanding collection of shirts/blouses are plain and I was just thinking the other day that I really do need some more patterned, colourful ones. This one was in the sale for only £9.99 and I personally think it looks very expensive! It’s a very smooth and silky, most probably imitation silk blouse and its coated in this elegant, vibrant floral pattern and also has blue and burgundy sections along the sides. Here I have styled it in a 2 ways and I did this post with the help of my close friend Olivia! The first look is the more dressy of the two and I have simply paired it with my La Redoute burgundy pleather midi skirt, UO Brougues, pearl earrings, Fossil brown leather clutch and wavy hair. The second look is more casual and would also work well with blue skinny jeans. Olivia is wearing Topshop black leggings, my vintage pearl necklace, pearl earrings, Fossil clutch bag, pinky/purply lippy and I did her hair using a donut and wrapping a thick plait around it. These looks can be easily re-created and changed from dressy to casual from swapping a skirt for jeans/leggings, and all you need is a staple printed blouse/shirt.
Yesterday, it was my friend Tosti’s Birthday dinner and we went out to an Italian restaurant called Ask. I had a great time with six other friends who came aswell and I had Fettucine Bolognese for my main and shared some delicious profiteroles for pudding(however they were quite tricky to eat and being me, got chocolate all over my face) !The outfit I wore last night features a lovely La Redoute high-waisted burgundy skirt with pleather panels- you may have also seen it dressed down a bit in another post- https://vintagevicar22.wordpress.com/2012/11/18/autumn-look-pleather-and-cute-dog-scarf/. This look shows how this skirt can be dressed up slightly more for any night out! I have paired it with my vintage silk blouse, M&S thick grey tights, La Redoute grey marl cardi, UO brogues (can’t see), Fossil clutch, Rococo silver dangly earings, a huge side bun and a blackberry lip!- Enjoy!
Autumn, the time where the leaves fall from the trees and Jack Frost beckons, rich oranges, reds, browns and yellows fill the ground with Winter not far to be found!! Yesterday, I went into the garden and did a series of Autumn Looks which I will be uploading every weekend for a couple of weeks! All the looks use autumn colours and hues and I have made use of the garden before my dad gets the leaf blower out haha! I have just received a La Redoute order so quite a lot of the items will be from there! Here I am wearing a La Redoute oversized baggy forest green top with this cute very old caramel coloured scarf with a cute little dog on it!! Then for the main spectacle I am wearing this gorgeous La Redoute high-waisted burgundy skirt with a pleather central panel and to finish off I am wearing some thick navy tights and vintage patent navy loathers! Hope you like this look and I hope you are all enjoying the Autumn Season!!- Enjoy!!
