today's outfit didn't have much thought put into it but somehow it actually looked alright, im loving this 'skinny' fitted blazer although i do not dare count how many blazers i now have in my wardrobe!
(blazer - Topshop, bodycon skirt - Topshop, silk tee - Boutique by Topshop, belt - vintage from Rokit, boots - vintage)
On other notes, im really starting to get excited about the new trends coming into play for the autumn and winter. i know its only mid July but my wardrobe has never been a great fan of summer colours and try as i might i just couldn't get used to wearing bold patterns and florals. so while flicking through the new issue of Vogue and Elle i felt a little excited to see the new trends on the catwalk, including power dressing and lace (my inner goth self does a little skip at this point!)
sharp readers may say 'hey i recognise that dress below' so yes i shall admit i bought another (i previously bought the dress in grey) of Topshop's lace dresses, this time in black. i have never ever bought two items of the same clothing in different colours and part of me felt guilty, but every time i passed this dress it seems to call out to me (again i fear my years as a teenage goth have crept up once again)
my argument; the dresses are investments, i don't think lace will ever go out of fashion.
or is this me just being greedy?
