What I Actually Wore #0075

Serial #: 0075
Date: 26/07/2012
Weather: 16°C, cool
Time Allowed: 10 minutes

Last winter I was on a bit of a Ballet Russes kick – that is, I was enjoying mixing up prints and textures and layering my clothes.

The wool cable knit dress needs layering in winter certainly, and that was provided by a fine knit striped tee from Free People with a silk short sleeved vintage 80s shirt on top. Since the shirt was spotty, I thought it would be cute to echo that shape with pompom earrings that I made myself, and my 1940s pompom headband. That accessory always draws stares.

Instead of boring old black opaques, I wear chocolate brown stockings and tower on suede shoes that have patent wedge heels. I love the contrast between the two types of leather. The blue is such a brilliant pop of colour too. When the weather is so dull and dreary there’s no reason to blend into the landscape!
