Attack of the Clashing Florals

Monday, 18 April 2011

I feel like I've been quite slack with the outfit posting recently. Must do better!

This is what I wore on Saturday for a day shopping in town and a haircut. Photos are taken pre-haircut, hence the giant mop.



I know my gaze is fixed to the floor in the first two and I have a bizarre scowl in the last one but honestly, I had no time to take any better photos! I was in such a rush to get out of the house and then ended up missing my train anyway, grrr.


Dress - vintage Sportscraft, revamped by moi as detailed in this post

Cardi - Tesco sale, purchased with a voucher won from lovely Em at Passion for Fashion


Belt & ring - Dorothy Perkins sale


Shoes - Schuh


Bag - made by the amazingly crafty Char


ps - there's going to be a North West bloggers meetup on 11th June in Manchester. If you want to come then get yourself over to the Google group set up for it. (Non-NW residents also welcome, obviously)


pps - the formatting in this post is driving me round the bend! Apologies if it's hard to read.

  33. You got the Schuh shoes! I put mine on yesterday then changed them for some Primark brogues. Wish I hadn't, they gave me blisters on the top of my toes. Ugh.

  36. Ooh, love the dress and clutch and shoes, lovely.

  37. What a lovely job you have done on your pretty dress! That print does hark back to the past where that was a typical "summer frock" I don't normally use the word frock but it describes it well.

    I love your pretty floral shoes.

    I have just read that you're FROM LIVERPOOL! Only a few miles from where I live. It's nice to read semi-local blogs, somehow more reality!

  38. You look absolutely beautiful in that dress! xx
