No opportunity to post for the last few days, work is just manic. A quick round up of the last three days follows:
Friday – Whistles
Fridays are a bit more relaxed in corporate attire but not in workload. The ever elegant and incredibly stylish Tracey found this dress last year. I could not resist. It is the Whistles Marla dress. Oh how I wish Whistles would re-issue this dress and in another colour – cream for Summer please. It’s a really great fit, the sleeves are long enough for me and I love the mini Dynasty shoulder pads. No photo of me wearing it though, sorry. No time, just too busy. I wore my Marla with opaques and the LK Bennett Una shoes.
Thursday – The Grey Skirt Suit
So here I am on Thursday wearing a grey skirt suit from Reiss.
I am not really into peplum but as you can see the Axel jacket is trying to be different with the pep feature at the edge.
The top is Zara, slightly puffed shoulder in style and very old. A very similar top here.. It’s long in length so I have tucked it in and put a belt (old from Reiss) around the waist.
I make the most of the suit by wearing the Axel jacket with a dress or cropped black or navy trousers and a cream silky t-shirt. The Harper skirt skirt has been worn with a thick black, cream or bright blue jumper and often with the cream blouse I had on last week.
Shoes? DVF Alaina as worn before and for many more days and nights to come.
Wednesday – Zara Victoriana
Zara Navy Boucle Jacket worn with Zara “Victoriana” high collared white shirt. Please do not ask me to find the links on their website as that is a massive task in itself but here is the link to current Zara blazers.
Trousers are from Gerard Darel as worn last week and mistaken for Black. Belt is as before from Reiss.
The shoes are from Jones the Bootmaker and are called Callaghan. A cheaper version of the LK Bennett Shilo. The heel is much thinner and tend to wear out too quickly as seen here.
I stepped into a loose pavement slab, ripped the leather and made an emergency and very tacky repair with Sellotape.
Have a great weekend.
