Sunday Best: In Love & Wardrobe

Fisher Woman

There are some items that you simply fall head over heels with, you absolutely must own them! This is my typical shopping method. I see, I fall, I buy. Only more often that not, once the shopping bags are unpacked, the tags ripped off and the receipt promptly lost. Upon finding that your newly beloved item does not fit as snugly into your wardrobe as you dreamed it to, the romance is swiftly over.

But then there are the pieces that you stumble across, the ones that creep quietly into your wardrobe without you really noticing them. The ones that you come to adore and can not live without.

This whole outfit is a perfect example, I didn't buy anything in a lustful frenzy. These purchases were either well thought out or found by chance. Singularly they don't fit into my usual 'style' but I like them and I think they work together. I felt comfortable wearing them and that's the only good test of an outfit as far as I am concerned.

  5. I've been loving lace collars. I have been making them with charms and ribbons attached. I'm thinking about posting a tutorial on my blog too soon.

  10. I love the outfit. You look like you're about to go see the Beatles at the Cavern Club. Is that the black pearl nailpolish by Chanel? I just love how that looks.

  21. The peacoat is just perfect and Topman! Amazing. I have a couple of things that I go back to time and time again, my gold pieces, my treasures.

  22. I absolutely hear you on the "in love vs. creeping in" idea. This year I've been trying my best to focus on buying only things that I love annnd that fit in seamlessly, but it's amazing how things sometimes fail when you thought they'd succeed, or become indispensable when you expected nothing much from them at the beginning.

    My favourite piece here is the skirt. The colour, length and pattern are all perfect.

  27. Annie, I truly wish could make collars like this but unfortunately its just from UO.

    Ani, I would love to see your tutorial!

  30. Oh, I so agree. The things I buy in a flurry of fashion fever are the things that fester at the back of my wardrobe. The things I buy because I like them, know they'll suit me and can see how they'll mix with my other items are the things I wear again and again.

    But I never learn. The best bit about shopping is the thrill of a truly frivolous purchase! :) x
