Slip Slidin' Away


slip dress

I know that THE BEST slip dresses are vintage or even faster finds - at Walmart. No joke.

Slip dress: Walmart underwear section. Boots: Sam Edelman.  Jacket: Zara (old).  Bag: Chanel. Try Rebecca Minkoff or Michael Kors. Shades: Ray-Ban. Wishbone necklace: Jennifer Zeuner. Crucifix necklace: Gift from Mum.  Trumpet necklace: New Orleans shop. 

I look at some 'inspired by' slip dresses listed on a google search and look at the dress and back at the price then back at the dress, then back at the price and think: GTFO.  Screw that and go direct to the  underwear section.  Get two sizes up so it skims versus dodgy body con territory. 

Bonus that you can actually wear them as they were intended - under 'real' dresses.

ps. These are the most comfortable ankle boots I've got.  I constantly fight the temptation to order them in black.

Blue Lace

You know one of those moments when you think: "Right. I'm trying this on."  This lace dress was one of them.

Dress: Zara. Reminds me of this Thakoon one. Shoes: Vans. Bag: Chanel. Shades: Ray-Ban

....long term readers know that being cobalt is enough of a reason.

I almost returned it thinking why get it at the end of summer but thought what the heck it's on clearance (and it's cobalt).  Plus it can get layered under knit jumpers next season.

PS.  Labour Day weekend shopping sales everywhere.  Here's some faves:

NastyGal - 30% off. I like this deep v-neck knit to wear over skirts/skinnies/wide trousers.
Express - 40% off everything!! I got this Carrie-like skirt in fuchsia and orange. Check Facebook for a dressing room photo.
L.K. Bennett - Extra 40% off sale. Code LD40
Rag & Bone - 30% off pre-fall
Gap - Up to 40% off. Code DAY at checkout. I got this denim pencil skirt to wear with trainers or slip ons. 
Barneys Warehouse  - Up to 30% off
Sephora - 75% off

6 Cool Pieces For Fall!


Untitled

To me there are only a handful of pieces that make a difference:

Wide leg culottes.  

Hers are from Topshop.  Wear now with sandals and open toe heels. Wear later with short or  tall boots.

Untitled

The cape coat.  

 Buy one in black or grey and wear it over slim cut jeans or trousers. 

Untitled

The calf length skirt. 

It's a ladylike throw back that looks just as cool with heels or with flats or a pair of trainers.
Buy in wool, leather or faux leather. 

Untitled

Classic brogues or oxfords. 

Updated with a pointy toe.  

Untitled

The chunky knit jumper.  

Wear a small knit with a big skirt or wide leg pants.  

Wear an oversized knit with a mini skirt or skinnies.

The maxi floor length skirt.  

Wear now with sandals and a t-shirt and later with boots, knits, blazers or bomber jackets.
