One of the great things about having mad coloured hair is the many opportunities to clash with whatever I’m wearing! However, once in a while I do love a bit of colour coordination! And when I saw these boots I held them to my hair and went “ooooooh”.
These beauties are called “Bratti”. I don’t think they scream brat but when you produce as many lovely pairs of shoes as Mr. Blahnik I think I can forgive him the unusual names!
The next day while wandering through Spitalfields market (okay sprinting like a demented clothes obsessive) I went into Collectif. And there in front of me was a black (boo) dress covered in turquoise polka dots (YAAAY OMGOMG GIMME!) now if that wasn’t fate I don’t know what it was. Possibly what happens when you look repeatedly at a website going oooh that would be nice, but I’m sticking with fate! Anyway this lovely is called Willow and is in the sale still at the moment. It has a nice thick cotton fabric so you don’t get too cold and a Marilyn moment doesn’t happen when you step outside into the gusty weather!
Now in case you haven’t noticed it is a bit chilly this week, with the wind battering us here in the UK. So boots, a dress with sleeves and nice thick tights will always be a winning combination! It may have been noticed by a few people that I was matching (one guy did look back at me a total of 4 times while walking away with his dog) but noone made any comments because I looked fabulous (or they were terrified by the hair – that also happens!) This is my only day off this week so I might as well embrace colour when I am! Next time I’ll have to clash!
What to top this outfit with? A jacket! This is the jacket that is part of a suit I bought from Hobbs when I first started teaching for interviews. The trousers are well and truly gone now but the jacket lives on!
