Sometimes it’s a Daily Outfit, sometimes it’s What i Wore, sometimes it’s SartorialSundays, sometimes it’s Style Inspirations OR…sometimes simply Dress-ups!
Welcome to my Dress-for-Dinner avec un ami!
Some girls love DIY and are pretty darn good at it too – hello, a pair and a spare! I dabble in DIY, I do, but I am more of a fiddler aka someone who likes to customise! So here we have a high street purchased tribal top that I am wearing back-to-front — case in point albeit as simple as swinging it around!
I never know, in advance, what my outfit is going to look like. I normally stand in front of my closet and let the scanning begin! Sometimes while I am scanning, something will fall from its hanger and lo & behold that will be my starting point!
The black, sheer slip was a vintage find that still had its very expensive original price tag on it! Needless to say I got it for a whisper of that price!
I love an item of clothing with a twist, and this cropped jacket was swoon-at-first-sight! I sometimes pop my arms through the slits to create another look-with-a-twist.
These boots are by far my all-time favourite! They give me just enough height to feel like I’m making an effort, without the discomfort that so often accompanies fabulous heels. They are vintage, and purchased a good few years ago in Bondi. They are 100% (of the softest) leather, and made their début as cowboy kicks! I was about to hand them over to charity when I decided to turn them into the boot du jour — the ankle boot, rag & bone anyone?! So pleased that I am a fiddler as once again it served me well and saved me some shopping time and dollars!
