Dirty Velvet

Quirky, thought provoking and refreshingly different are most certainly boxes I want to be ticked when I'm investigating new brands. Dirty Velvet seems to do all this and much more.
When I spotted their 100% unique designs I knew I had to have a piece of the action and am lucky enough to have chosen a couple of items for my own wardrobe.

The pieces are a statement all by themselves so I kept the rest of the outfits minimal, opting for muted colours (shocking for me, I know). 
The UFO t shirt reminded me of old school Hollywood movie posters and is such an ideal staple t shirt with a multitude of outfit possibilities.
My favourite has marginally got to be the sweatshirt however, the simple graphic design is literally the stuff of dreams and fits so effortlessly into my wardrobe. I feel much more of their A/W items will be on my Christmas list..

Which is your favourite?

You're the apple of my eye

top - CNDirect
trousers - CNDirect
hat - Missguided
shoes - Allsaints
necklace - ebay

Since purchasing those grid print beauties from Primark, my love affair with trousers is yet to burn out. I am still surprised it took me this long to give them a second glance..
So when kindly asked to pick out some things from CN Direct, this pair had a place in my shopping basket straight away. High waisted with ribbed detailing, they remind me of riding pants but in a beautiful navy colour. 
And they of course go so well with this simple white shirt which I am desperate to wear as much as possible before the sun departs us. I have so many white shirts, but not one without a collar. Therefore a purchase totally justified. Of course. 

How do you style a white shirt?

midsummer nights dream

Despite most of my wardrobe being monochrome, a simple white co ord is something it previously lacked. Cue Luxemme.
This ensemble is so simple and clean lined, yet with a hint of something edgier thanks to the lace cut out detailing. So easy to throw on and instantly feel elegant, maybe too much for my late evening tesco trips?
My only sadness lies in the fact I didn't have it to hand for the wedding I attended early this year, though I think it would be equally appropriate for an evening out. So long as you don't have strangers spilling tequila sunrises all over you.

Where would you wear it?

Washed up summer

The final rays of summer may be shining, but as I try to catch every last glimpse of sunshine before the pavements are carpeted with leaves, I can't help lusting over these pick and mix coloured pieces. She In is yet to disappoint and is the primary source for my current wardrobe lusts..

Which is your favourite?
