Like a cross between a Wizard and a Cowboy

 


 
 
 
 

Velvet jacket: Charity Shop
Dress: Evil Twin (via Sample Sale)
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell via Office
Rings: c/o Tentative decisions and Primark
Hat: Miss Selfridge
Necklace: Waiste

I call this my 'cosmic wizard cowboy' look obviously. This is what I wore out for a meal with my girlies from home yesterday. I picked this velvet number up in a charity shop when I came home the day before, and I feel quite magical in it, although also slightly autumny, especially as up North here the weather has gone a bit colder. I'm not ready for Autumn just yet though, (even though I am getting slightly excited about layering again) so please sun can you come back for August, k thanks bye.

I wasn't sure whether or not to keep this Evil Twin dress or not, I got it in the Out and About Showroom sample sale a few months ago, then I managed to lose a button from it, and it took me until yesterday to replace all the buttons, as I couldn't find a similar one to the original button. And breathe! Anyway, I'm glad I did in the end, as I feel it's the perfect dress (even though it's SS) to take me through my inevitable style transition of grungey boho, to more just grungey with a bit of boho for AW. I would love to be all boho all the time, but in England it's just too cold and miserable sometimes. And most of my summer clothes look awful with the dreaded black tights I know I'll have to wear in a month or so. Sad face. 

I have to stop talking about AW already, but it's everywhere i look at the moment, I know if I start looking I'll be sick of all my clothes by September at this rate.

  3. The jacket is such a good find! I love the dress as well- it looks as though it was made for you! I feel your pain about AW... ugh, I hate transitioning from summer to autumn. I never know what to wear! And don't even get me started on the dreaded black tights... I wish it could be summer all the time :( xxx

  9. I loooooove all the colours and patterns in this post, so dreamy! I can't believe the amazing things you find in the charity shops of Stoke, that jacket is clearly something that came from one of those really expensive hippy shops. And those boots were def a smart buy.

    Wanna do a No Tights Challenge? Let's see how long we can go without wearing tights and the one who does first has to do a forfeit (I wouldn't get away with it because n spring I put a pair of tights in my bag and my boyfriend said "YOU TOLD SARA YOU WEREN'T WEARING TIGHTS ANYMORE, I'm going to tell her" and shamed me into not wearing them). Though I don't even want to THINK about tights yet :/
