V Thursday

Is it that time of the year again?

Today I am wearing the Danya belted dress from Whistles. This colour (Aubergine I think) is sold out on the Whistles website but the lovely people at Atterley Road have limited stock.

Whistles has now re-stocked the Danya in Navy.

Swoon. Am tempted, as you know Blue is one of my favourite colours, but not without a discount code. March time? Grazia?

Shoes are Nine West Flax black suede stiletto courts.

Nine West gets my vote for a generous size 9 (42) and good reductions can be found online and at House of Fraser.

Navy Blazer/Jacket is Gerard Darel from Ma Boutique and is part of a dress suit.

A little bit of red for V day has come out in this DVF scarf.





Monochromish Monday

Did Black and White ever go out of fashion?

For work today I am wearing a pair of very old Gerard Darel classic black trousers.

The black metal chain type belt is also from Gerard Darel. No links as both items are so old but similar here Gerard Darel, Ma Boutique

The jacket/blazer was bought in the sale last year from Paul Smith. Paul Smith

The main colour is grey but it has black lapels and is fully lined in cream. It’s been worn out to the max since being purchased but today it is worn with one of my favourite white stretch shirts from La Redoute, a decade old and still going strong. La Redoute

I love this particular shirt as it stays tucked in all day and does not allow for any cleavage glimpses in the office.

LK Bennett metallic grey Shilos are on my frozen feet after trudging in yeti boots to the office.

The reason for the “ish”? Just been told that the trousers are dark Navy and not Black. You can’t tell, can you?

Happy Monday.



Winter Kate – at last.

Some of the worn out bloggers had the opportunity to meet up yesterday for a fabulous lunch, a little shopping (thank you and curtsey to AM worn out) and much needed catch up at the roof top restaurant in Selfridges.

I have finally got something to blog about after a dismal Summer and a sea of corporate Navy/Grey and Black. I wore out for the first time the Winter Kate kimono maxi dress. I bought this earlier on this year in the sale at My Wardrobe.com.  It’s very long and the only maxi I have that is floor length. I have others but they just skim my ankles, not a good look for a very tall person in my humble opinion.

The sandals are Sam Edelman Trinas in the nude/beigey/oatmeal colour with a gold heel.   I am pleased to report a purchase was made in size 9 or US 11 and a very good fit. Result.

I treated myself to a pair of oversized Louis Vuitton sunglasses via Duty Free this year on holiday. Silvery grey in colour, they are decorated with tiny sparkles BUT are a real challenge to wear and enjoy. They are literally oversized by which I mean falling/sliding and dropping off my face onto the pavement. Not pleased. The big tote bag is from Marc by Marc Jacobs, a discounted purchase.

Apart from the sunglasses malfunction and having to leave early I had a really lovely and much deserved day out. Many thanks to the weather and to the worn outters who really do bring sunshine to my busy life.
