OOTD: Ballerina-Inspired

In two days, it will be officially summer! Last month, I decided it was time to add some colour to my mostly black mourning wardrobe. I’ve been wanting to have a ballerina-esque outfit and took my inspiration from the H&M SS2011 collection: I’d been checking new styles from Jacob Boutique and H&M and was delighted when I …

OOTD: Decked in Green for St Paddy’s

Green is one of my favourite colours. I’m constantly on the lookout for the perfect Little Green Dress in Forest Green since my wardrobe is full of funeral garbs (i.e. LBDs, black blazers, black tights).

Dress No. 24 or 24th Birthday Dress

Today’s 3rd 100 Dresses post is on my 24th Birthday dress, which I’ve named “Dress No. 24” (like Chanel No. 5) because it was, at the time, my 24th dress too! What I wore on my 24th birthday: Why did I purchase this dress? Being a summer child, I needed something that wasn’t too long …

OOTD: Easter Dress

I’m starting a new series called 100 Dresses, better known as OOTD (outfit of the day) for the rest of you. The post will focus mainly on my dresses but some outfits will have skirts. I take the title from a book I’d partially read when I was a child by the same name which …

Peplum Dresses

Last year, I learned the word ‘peplum,’ which is that flared/pleated ‘skirt’ around the waist. As a dress, it is usually finished off with a straight body-hugging skirt. It can also be a blouse, paired with trousers or a straight skirt. Though I’d never heard of the word ‘peplum’ before, I first saw it in Thumbelina …

OOTD: Edwardian/Equestrian-Style

I’m starting a new category called ‘fashion’ which will contain posts on clothing from my wardrobe and other related-styles.

My style has always stayed the same (anything with some historical influence) and my ideal beauty is being elegant. I love dresses (and skirts) and avoid wearing trousers if I don’t need to wear them. I look to ladies, Golden actresses, and royals from the past for inspiration and to the Duchess of Cambridge for a more modern look (yes, by my books, she’s modernly chic!) – be it for work or casual.

So, without further ado, I present to you today’s Edwardian/equestrian-inspired outfit for work!
