I knew you ladies of style and substance would have some words of wisdom for me!
I would love a red beret set at a jaunty angle - but I don't have one. Nor a red cardi or jacket.
But I've added a little brooch, tucked in the end of the belt, unearthed some red tights, and lightened the trotters with white T-bars.
And I have turned up the hem of the skirt by about an inch, only pinned as yet, might take it up a bit more yet.
I feel better. Can you tell?
It's not odd that I dressed up again in the same outfit, but with your suggested adaptatons, is it?
I knew you'd understand.
This is what I really wore today.
1970s Lerose maxi dress (Ebay), InWear mohair wrap cardigan (flea market), Jones boots (Ebay), Jennie's necklace (again), beaded charm bracelet (birthday gift)
The dress was too big on the top (not a problem I often encounter) so I took it in, but very shoddily, hence it can only be worn with something over the top. I told you I was slapdash.
Look, I'm showing you my skirt, right, and if you don't like it, I'll have this face like a slapped arse for the rest of the day.
I love how you darlings are full of ideas and constructive styling advice. I trust your judgment, and I will doubtless be calling on your expertise again.
Who needs Trinny, Susannah, Gok or anyone else when you've got the blogging community to help?
You rock! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
