I had to ask Renata

wrap skirt

"My skirt is by Dries Van Noten and the jacket is vintage."

Her take on the usual denim jacket is just brilliant and don't get me started on her skirt!

I say do a quick DIY version from this earlier post with a mens shirt.   I love the length of hers so a long tunic tied also works. I see the skirt working in different fabrics too: felt, wool, jersey as well as cotton like hers.   Get tying!   If you try it tweet me a pic will you?

 I Instagrammed a how-to video of a plaid self tie skirt that I had at home have a peek @karenbritchick (Instagram and Twitter).

Preview: Alexander Wang x H&M

Alexander Wang x H&M

Yesterday I checked out the collaboration.  

Stock photos and shots on models don't help me understand what the clothes are like in real life - hence making a point to see the clothes in person.

This structured wool motor jacket is my personal favorite.

pink sweater white leather jacket fluffy jumper Untitled ruffled tier skirt pink fluffy sweater cat eye sunglasses
Pink jumper: Pixie Market. Skirt: H&M. Try Topshop. Bag and Sunglasses: Kurt Geiger.  Try Miu Miu. Leather jacket: Trash & Vaudeville. Brogues: Trash & Vaudeville. Try Pedder Red. Bracelets: PANDORA

I reckon that we're counting down the number of days we can wear skirts with bare legs so I'm getting them in now.

The only accents are these two delicate PANDORA ESSENCE COLLECTION bracelets. I picked charms with names with a personal significance to me, including spirituality, curiosity, peace, respect and strength.

The baby pink jumper is a find from Pixie Market. I can see it contrasted with black leather but for now I kept everything bright with all white and the silver winkle picker brogues.

 I will be at the PANDORA store on November 5th from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M.!  I rarely get to meet readers face to face so I would love to see you there for a drink and a chin wag (chat) on anything; play dress-up with PANDORA Jewelry pieces,  shop and offer styling/blogging tips - you name it!

I'll have my Nikon with me so be ready to get snapped!
