Pencil Skirts and Pussy Bows

So its Valentines Day!

I hope everyone has had love in their life in one form or other today. Im just typing this up quickly before making some dinner for my lovely husband. M&S Dine in for Two special. Lovely. Husband on lates so once again somewhat cobbled together photos.

The challenge this week is pencil skirts and pussy bow blouses. I love a pencil skirt so it had to be that. The pencil skirt I have chosen is the very elusive asos curve multi sequin one. This was one of those pieces that appears and disappears from curve. Luckily Clare aka chattermonkey keeps an eagle eye out and spots when the odd one lands back on the site. So I was lucky to get it.

I hadnt managed to find the right place to wear it as I was ill all over Christmas so I decided to dress it down for work.

I had to add the blazer to make it a bit formal so sorry for the two weeks of blazer. I wore it with a vintage style t-shirt, a replica of an original New Order t shirt I once had. I wore it with some ankle biker boots I have had for a couple of years from Evans.

    • I think I have such a thing for accessories because in the really bad old days (Im not saying we are at the completely good days now). The only way you could really make something on trend was accessories. Plus im only a lottery win away from throwing it all in to go and do jewellery design at Goldsmiths.

  1. Hi, I’m the woman who gushed effusively over your River Island necklace at Plus Size Fashion Weekend on Saturday. Having just discovered you here I’ve added you to my blogroll. I love the idea of dressed down sequins at work and this skirt is quite wonderful. (Also your dog is very obliging).

    • Yes I remember! Thank you for adding me. I think sequins are always appropriate for daywear.

      The dog is very obliging and is very aware of his own handsomeness & it’s enhancement with jewels.
