The slip dress…

Last week I decided to face my fears and purchase a slip dress. Now a ‘slip dress’ is by no means a dress in a slip style. It’s just a slip that I am going to work as a dress. Naturally I’m a bit apprehensive. When one doesn’t live in the major fashion capitals of the world, a strangers confused look at your ‘underwear as outerwear’ can be enough to vow never to wear that item of clothing again! BUT I’m going to take a chance. I’ve googled around looking for ideas and with the 90’s still popular, along with Kate Bosworth’s recent Coachella collection for Topshop, I’m not alone. The garment in question (pictured below) is a very pretty yellow which I feel I must toughen up. My planned outfit will go something like this. 3

The jacket is Tim Ryan and waaaay out of my price range but I may invest in a cheaper fringed suede version. I also think some chunky gold jewellary will be in there somewhere! Stay tuned for a proper outfit post soon and if anyone has any suggestions on how to wear the slip dress, I’d love to hear your comments!

Bombers are IN!

The 90’s strike yet again with the return of the bomber. Silk, printed, quilted, velvet, you name it, it’s a bomber jacket. I picked up this ‘Chanel’ one in Shutterbug (see previous post) last year and still can’t believe my luck. I also managed to get my hands on the cut-out boots from New Look. I haven’t taken them off since.
