I make no secret of the fact that I have ZERO creativity when it comes to most things - particularly clothes! I stare a lot at women around me for inspiration and I also read blogs that appeal to my sense of style. I make no apologies for the fact that I steal a lot of looks and post them up on Avenue 57 as my own! But credit where credit is due, when I saw Joanna yesterday on Poppy's Style I thought to myself 'that's really nice and very well put together, I'll have that look for tomorrow'! It was so easy to get up this morning KNOWING what I was going to wear - took 5 mins to get dressed (instead of usual 15 just stood in front of the wardrobe waiting for a top or dress to jump out at me .. then going to the jeans drawer to see if inspiration will leap from there and then finally onto the shoe cupboard to see if it's a style of shoe or boot that will bring together an outfit).
I cannot tell you also how over the moon I was when H&M sent me a sale email the other week and my favourite tshirt in the whole wide world EVER was in the sale at £3.99 (it's not in the sale now but it's still ONLY £7.99) - I bought this striped one, a grey one and a white one - NEVER buy just one of your favourite items - always buy lots and lots. Remember I wrote a love letter to this favourite tshirt of mine last year? When I say I'm in love, I really do mean it!!
The jeans are Primark super skinny and super (too) tight - I think have a suspect camel toe on show if you get close - this is not good, I know that, but my love of the jeans is greater than my care of the camel toe outage. Grey boots £12 from Peacocks
Denim shirt from Sainsbury's about 2 years ago but I know they have similar in some stores again at the moment. ASOS also have one similar online today for £35
I don't have a fur gilet so couldn't style exactly as Joanna has but my trusty Abercrombie & Fitch puffa gilet which is around 15 years old is still going strong
There a lot of gorgeous women posting on A57 at the moment - I am truly one happy magpie right now!
PS - this gilet is 15 years old and I still love it. What item do you have that you still love that is borderline vintage it's so old?
