TGIF! No, seriously TGIF…..
Props to all of you that took part in this week’s challenge. Your shoes, outfits, kindness and humour lifted me more than you’ll know in what’s been a particularly intense week.
The juxtaposition of hard and soft is romantic. Throwing a leather jacket over a ball gown or denim over chiffon has real appeal and besides what do I always tell you about using your good things…
This morning at 7.10am, I dusted off this formal dress from 1990 and renovated it into a day frock for 2013.
Mixing the rainbow boucle with the black satin dressed it down and I also kept my hair and make-up very lo-fi.
Except for my coffee which needed to be full volume.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend with your Dad’s and thinking of all of you that are missing theirs this Sunday.
WEARING: Dress from 1990, boucle jacket from Isabel Marant, satin shoes from Rupert Sanderson.
And this is what it’s like on its own. Verrrry Pump Up The Jam.
