Blouse and pearls - 1950s vintage | Beret - High street | Skirt and coat - Primark | Shoes - Deichmann
I have been feeling really uninspired by all my clothes recently. I was looking forward to buying some new things until I realised I need all my money to pay for two conferences I am going to later in the year. I only work 5 or 8 hours a week most weeks for minimum wage, and that money doesn't go far. Choices had to be made, and of course professional development is more important.
I've been keeping an inspiration folder on my computer since before I started blogging, and I was looking through it recently in the hopes of finding some new ideas for wearing things I already own. I came across a photo I had saved from here, and thought - I have a top just like that! Which is no doubt why I saved the photo in the first place. I take a lot of inspiration from bloggers when I'm putting outfits together; I love to see how vintage style is being worn by people now.
Please try to pretend that I am doing a high fashion slouch and that this is not down to bad posture.
I have mixed feelings about these photos - I seem to be gradually getting to grips with my new camera, which is really exciting. Unfortunately though, I missed the best of the sunshine in the morning because I had to wait in for a parcel. Also I ventured out onto the street to take these photos only to be given filthy looks by people driving past, and someone even wound down their car window and shouted at me. How rude.
