More Autumn Wardrobe Updates

Yes, another outfit post.

They’re like Buses, I don’t do one for ages and then a gazillion come along all at once. This is normally because I haven’t had anything new to wear for ages and haven’t worn anything old in a new way and repeating outfits is pretty dull for me and you!

But, as part of my dedication to not hating my wardrobe this autumn and winter, I have had a bit of a revamp, so outfit photos ahoy!

Lindy Bop actually asked me to pick a dress in early September, which I did happily, going for day wear instead of evening fanciness because of the gaping day wear hole in my wardrobe. I then wanted to hunt out the perfect coloured tights to go with it.

I am afraid that currently I am poor as the proverbial Church mouse, having frittered away all my available cash on Cocktails in early October. Fortunately, just as I was wondering how on earth I was going to keep my legs warm, let alone attractively coloured in a “perfectly matching with my dress” kind of way, UK Tights asked me if I wanted to review some tights. So I am afraid I am about to do that thing that they always tell Fashion Bloggers they should never do and post an outfit all made of “stuff people gave me”. Still sod it, I’d have spent my own money on all these things happily, if I had any right now, and it is an awesome Autumn outfit that makes me very happy.

♥ Audrey Floral Dress c/o Lindy Bop ♥ Charnos 60 Denier Tights in Berry c/o UKTights
♥ Cardigan – Boden* ♥ Shoes – Office ♥ Belt – H&M ♥

By way of a review I can tell you that the Lindy Bop dress costs a tiny £34.99 and I was surprised at the quality for that price! It’s a thick fabric with just enough stretch and fits really well. If I had anything bad to say it would be that the armholes are a little tight, but I’m used to that so they probably won’t be on you, unless you have Popeye arms like me (Yes, I know Popeye had big forearms, not big biceps, but you know what I mean!), also the fabric covered belt that came with it was a little small, so I swapped it for one of my own.

And the tights, well, they’re tights! When tights are good there is a little to say about them! They’re matte, comfortable, don’t roll down or wrinkle up and didn’t fill with holes after one wear, so a win!

4 Halloween Costumes Straight From My Wardrobe

feature Halloween is approaching and I can’t let it slip by without some costumey fun! Every year I leave it far too late, or don’t have enough money to put together the costume I really want, so generally 99% of any costume I wear is put together from stuff already in my wardrobe. I just jazz […] Oooh, tell me more........

A Start on My Autumn Wardrobe and Boden A/W Picks

BODEN FEATURE Last “chilly” season I felt pretty down about my everyday wardrobe. Everything seemed so drab and miserable and apart from a few nice “going out” outfits I felt pretty rubbish every day. This year I am so determined not to do the same thing, so I have acquired some new bits, put them together with […] Oooh, tell me more........

Because I Can’t Let Go of Summer

boden nancy dress The very best time to buy Summer clothes is in Autumn and Winter. It’s true, they all go on sale and you can grab them for next to nothing. All Summer long I had my eye on an ah-mayzing novelty print 50s style frock at Boden. But it was £89, and at no point did […] Oooh, tell me more........

Cocktail Week Highlights

cocktail week I told you I’d be back with more Cocktails! I promise this will be the last one for a little while, as I’m pretty much cocktailed out, but this has been a big thing in my life for the last 6 months plus and it seems a shame to let it end without a little […] Oooh, tell me more........

Triumph #Nigglefix

home-main Niggle. It’s a brilliant word. It feels kinda nice to say, but it’s not such a nice thing to actually have. Niggle means to “Cause slight but persistent annoyance, discomfort, or anxiety”. Todays post is about Niggles, as Triumph are currently on a mission to fix one of women’s top daily niggle. Apparently Bras digging […] Oooh, tell me more........
