3 Ways to Wear the '90s Slip Dress

For my money, H&M have definitely come up with the slip dress of the season... at a mere £9.99, I could scarcely believe it was labelled correctly! I'd been after a '90s style strappy number since last year, so, having rejected the ubiquitous daisy print jersey versions which are still all too close a reminder of my wardrobe aged 10, and the lace-trimmed satin versions which still somehow feel a little too "Welcome to the Playboy Mansion", finding this felt like the answer to all my prayers - not only free from flora, fauna and fripperies, but perfect for both day and night! I decided to style it up (and down) 3 ways, from grunge to glam, in honour of its '90s heritage... How would you wear yours?

I have to give a special mention to my "DIY" '90s style choker... Having relinquished all my original velvet versions years ago (darnit!), I spent much of Easter Monday scouring my accessories for some kind of substitute... and eventually came up with this jewelled detachable bra strap! Bought from Primark a couple of years ago to glam up strapless dresses, it does the job perfectly, and, of course, it's even adjustable - win!

Sports vs Luxe: 2 Ways to Wear Double Sheer Mesh Panels

Not to be deterred by our rather less-than-lovely spring weather now that I'm back on board the blogging train, I dashed out during a rain-free few minutes today to shoot some of my latest purchases...

Mesh panel pencils are everywhere at the moment, but, in terms of price, as well as comfort and fit, I think this £12 stretch jersey George number takes the high street prize... I'm wearing it with anything and everything at the moment, but was dying for a matching sheer panelled T-shirt to team it up with for a sports luxe feel, so snapped up this £14 Matalan top as soon as I spied it online. I decided to style them together two ways - leaving the tee loose and teaming with trainers for a sportier slant - and tucking in and belting up with a chain-link belt and metallic heels for more of a "luxe" look... Which route would you take?

Going Dotty

Yes, it has been an age since my last post... too much time spent attempting to portray ancient Egyptian monarchs/South London hairdressers/Colombian drug barons and not nearly enough documenting my latest tartan/pinafore/scrunchie-clad exploits... But I do now have a (rather daunting) backlog of outfit shots stretching back to the end of last year to share with you... And I have at least kept up my resolution to shoot outside whenever precipitation levels permit, frozen fingers or no!

So, since I have to (re-)start somewhere, I figured I may as well go with what I wore today... The vinyl midi, as you may well remember, was an A/W favourite, but I decided to whip it out of its S/S retirement to team with this new mesh-sleeved polka dot top from H&M (a lovely surprise early Easter present from Mummy Muses) for a bit of a transitional texture mash-up... Slightly odd to be going back to (all) black at this time of year, but, as you'll no doubt see shortly, I have been fully embracing this season's white/pastel revolution, so it actually makes a nice change! And the cute velvet polka dots add a bit of springtime sass, no?

Happy Easter! Wishing you all many chocolate-filled days...

Pink Lady

Less than 3 weeks into 2014, and I've already fulfilled my most important resolution (to invest in a pink coat) - whoop! So I've decided to implement another new year pledge: to haul my camera outside, whenever weather permits... And though it might still be cold and grey out there, my January is definitely feeling rosier for being candy-coated... particularly since this little find was reduced to £28 in the Peacocks sale! I love the cut's boy-meets-lady feel and can't wait to try it out with skinnies, boyfriend jeans, mini/ankle socks combos... but couldn't resist a pink double dip for starters, teaming my new pastel midi with white tights and points for a ladylike '60s feel. If my wardrobe began to blush in 2013, this year, it's unapologetically blooming. Candy addiction officially reignited.
