I love colour - you all know that.
But I can appreciate the drama of monochrome too, so Saturday saw me wearing nothing but black and white. Oh and a splash of silver.
1970s white faux fur coat, Wallis dress, lurex leggings, vintage silver gloves, 1960s tapestry bag, and sequin beret - charity shopped
Boots - retail (sale, ancient)
on a girls' shopping trip...
Claudia had a gift card (Christmas present) burning a hole in her pocket.
She's on a black and white kick too. She really wanted a bright blue jumper, but there wasn't one to be found in H&M. Lots of black, white, grey, some mustard and red, but the Fashion Powers That Be seem to have decreed that blue is not in.
I was decidedly unimpressed by the clothes (and may have expressed that view loudly enough to be shushed by my offspring), but Claudia enjoyed getting to choose something from a proper shop, just for a change.
Nina and I entertained ourselves while we waited outside the changing room.
Mirror mirror, on the wall...
The purchases - striped top, patterned jeans (half price), pack of socks, and a floral hairband.
(I'm not linking, cos I do not love.)
Clothing bought, we headed off for lunch...
and I had to explain why this made me laugh quite so much.
Who's he? asked my girls...
Chip off the black'n'white block.
I thought it was time to add some colour, and try out this rather flamboyant new-to-me 1970s blouse, a gift from Marie of The Queen's Drawers (linking cos I do love.)
1970s pussy-bow blouse - gift from Marie
Jumpsuit, ankle boots, beret and belt - charity shopped
Vintage faux fur collar - gift from Sarah Misfit
This outfit comes in at under a tenner. Including shoes.
And I like that a whole lot more than shopping on the high street.
I'll be joining Visible Monday over at Patti's as usual.
Nothing says visible like a vintage lipstick-red pussy-bow, sequins and some faux fur!
PS. Guess what? I found my purple glove, a little grubby and utterly sodden, lying on the pavement just up the road. I am ridiculously pleased!
