Pop Your Collar

Wednesday, 3 September 2014

I seem to be on the quite the vintage roll at the moment. It's a refreshing change!

 I was having a mooch back through old blog posts recently and it struck me that I'm not anywhere near as interesting in my outfit choices as I used to be. Vintage kinda solves that problem for you. No need to accessorize or pair things up, just shove on something with a bold pattern and let your collar do the talking.

This is my new (old) super seventies secretary frock.  All I need is a shorthand notebook and some slightly flickier hair and I reckon I'd fit in beautifully.

Check out the massive collar:

And the magical slimming powers:

It's a very good frock.

Frock - vintage 'Devonshire Lady' via The Vintage Corner
Heels - Office via ebay
Necklace - Accessorize
Bag - can't remember! Shame on me.


  1. I'm so, so jealous of your amazing vintage finds. I think we have similar body types and I just cannot find any vintage in my size, ever. It's always either teeny tiny or (very rarely) far too big. What's your secret?!

  2. Ah I was convinced this was a blouse and skirt. Lovely bag (actual handbag, not calling you a bag)!

  3. This is amazing! It looks very wearable too.

  4. I love the frock and the bag! You look gorgeous :)

  5. Oh, that is a great dress, green is totally your colour x

  6. Yep, I'm with Gem, i thought it was a skirt and top as well.


I'm easily pleased - a simple comment will cheer me up no end. So do drop me a line below...
