I'm back with another roundup of what I've been wearing to work.
Last week saw the biggest change to my personal style in years, in the form of a new hairdo! I went to the hairdresser armed with a picture of French blogger Pandora, and had a blunt fringe cut in. I also had a bit of feathering around the face because I thought that might be more flattering on me than having it all one length. I'm so pleased with it! I feel a bit more '60s, and a lot sexier. It's more work in terms of maintenance. When I get up in the morning, my hair resembles that of '80s children's TV presenter Sarah Greene. So I have to get the straighteners out and tame it into submission. A small price to pay.
Looking back at these photos, I'm not sure that jumper's actually flattering, I think I'm supposed to fill the top half out a bit more?! Oh well, it was lovely and cosy on a chilly Monday morning.
Monday: Swing trousers (20th Century Foxy), Woolovers jumper (via ebay), Accessorize beret, Clarks brogues.
Tuesday: That Peacocks pinafore dress again! Lillywhite's silk blouse, via vintage shop in Cardiff (now closed down). Boots, F&F at Tesco (via car boot sale, brand new with tags for £2).
Wednesday: Day off work (got my hair cut!).
Thursday: Pencil dress, George at Asda (via car boot sale, brand new with tags for £2), mary-janes, Clarks (via ebay, less than half price). Cardigan, Primark.
Friday: Skirt, Peacocks. Petticoat, Lindybop. Cardigan, Collectif. Mary-janes, Clarks.
I love that Lillywhite's blouse, but it's very short in the body so I can only wear it under dresses really, rather than tucking it into skirts and trousers, as it just pops out again. I'm guessing it's 1950s, here's the label, any help with dating it much appreciated! ** update: Vix reckons it's '70s, see comments **
Finally, I should mention that I had a petticoat drama on Friday - because I was wearing tights, the petticoat bunched up when I walked, forming a sort of marsupial-like pouch under my skirt. I had to nip into the changing rooms in Peacocks and whip it off!
