These photographs are a typical example of an outfit post that got completely forgotten about. I shot these a few months ago, and if I’m honest, totally forgot to ever upload them onto the blog, but I really like the outfit itself so I thought why not. It’s just going to be a short post as things are very hectic at the moment, if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’m currently working on the core team for a huge fashion event in Newcastle – Fashion Futures. The main event is tomorrow, a series of talks with guests such as Henry Holland, Laura Weird and Alexandra Shulman OBE (I KNOW RIGHT?!) and a lot of my time is busy helping out with bits and bobs for that. I’m incredibly excited, and a little bit overwhelmed, never did I think I’d be given the task to put together a goodie bag for one of my idols, the Editor of British Vogue, but that day has arrived. I’m sure I’ll do a post about it very soon!
I may have mentioned it once or twice (or 100 times) on the blog recently, but I can’t get enough of the 70s trend which has taken the high street by storm this season. There’s something about the fabrics and cuts that I find incredibly flattering, plus I can wear an oversized hat with every outfit! I’ve already spoken about these flared jeans in a previous outfit post, but I seriously can’t get enough of them – I must wear them at least once a week. I find that they really lengthen my rather short legs which is something I’m all for. The only thing I sometimes find is struggling to pair them with coats, but as the day we shot these photographs was rather dreary (as you probably tell) I chose to wear my trusty duster coat and I was pleasantly surprised at how it looks – embracing my inner Inspector Gadget and what not! And to add a little colour into the outfit, I went for this high-neck top I picked up in the M&S sale earlier this year. It’s a shop I wouldn’t think to look in for clothes, but there’s been some real finds in there recently – well worth a look!
