Fashion. Style. Creativity
Join me as I venture through the world of Fashion...

Occasion: A Day Round Town

Outfit Recipe [let's take it from the top]...
  • Top created by Me *made out of vintage scarf * inspired by D&G's S/S '12 collection*
[And who wouldn't want to make a scarf top if the girls that wear them get guys like this!?]
  • Vintage yellow ochre & pearl detail suede leather bolero *a touch of glamorous tribal to complement the scarf print*
  • Mum's vintage grey trousers [thank-goodness Ma never throws anything out!]
  • Add a bit of sparkle to the socks
  • Black patent brogues

A Sprinkle Of Accessories...
  • Black into clear fold-away Ray Ban sunglasses
  • Camel & Black stripy clutch bag [Mango]

With An Essence Of...
  • Paul Smith's 'Rose' Eau de Parfum

I love the satisfaction of wearing something you have created, seeing it transform from imagination to reality. Putting a great combination of an outfit together is nearly as good, so I recommend you start digging in those wardrobes & finding interesting combinations you never would have dreamed of before!
I picked up this cute little jacket in a great vintage boutique in my hometown of Hastings, on sale for just £20, so it's not just about the price tag! Although do think of 'cost-per-wear' if is a pricey piece & you expect to only wear it once, consider selling it on to friends, or vintage shops like the one I got this jacket from even give you half your money back if you don't wish to wear it anymore! One person's rubbish is another person's treasure!
