A Pretty Daytime Midi
My next outfit post, shot by +Marion Bot with a hint of post-processing by yours truly (am I getting better at editing the images? I want them to show off the clothing and be consistent without being too 'over-done').
This is a curious mix of styles and eras, but I feel that it works. The 1970s swirly print dress has a high neckline, lending elegant to an otherwise garish print. Check out a further range of vintage dresses on TrendListr if you like what you see! I dressed it down with a battered leather belt and my favourite CrossEyes spectacles, whose red tortoiseshell frames really made the autumnal tones of the dress pop.

This coat, I could write essays on. It's a vintage cashmere wool coat with fabric covered buttons and a fur stoat collar. It's got an almost 1960s silhouette to it, but is older than that, probably early 1950s. It's fully lined with silk and is the most luxurious thing hanging in my wardrobe currently.
My patent maroon shoes are from M&S but worked nicely with the dress as it was in the same colourway, but casual enough to keep this look relevant for day-to-day wear.
My Limited Edition CrossEyes spectacles. Probably the best customer service I have received... anywhere, ever. You can find out more about them here. Another bonus of CrossEyes is how design-led their collections are, so all the frames are very directional and on-trend - no ugly reading specs in sight!
