Maybe it’s my Scottish heritage or maybe it’s my old lady sense of style, but I love wearing tweed! This vintage tweed coat is a favourite of mine and it’s perfect for winter, as it keeps me feeling warm and yet looking smart. I bought it for practically nothing from a charity shop, as they say, one woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure! I’m pretty sure I saw an old lady checking out my coat earlier, the elderly always think I’m stylish. I think they are pretty stylish too, I learn more about fashion from Joan Collins and Iris Apfel than I do from the youths of today!
My bag is from MandM Direct, I first wore it a few weeks ago as part of my MandM Direct challenge, but I have been using it lots recently as it’s so practical. The generous size fits it all my junk as well as my iPad and I love the zipper detailing on the sides.
I love Vivienne Westwood and I own quite an impressive collection of Westwood clothes, shoes, bags and jewels. I bought both of these brooches quite a few years ago, but to keep them looking fresh and exciting I swap them around different coats and I like to layer them up and wear a few at a time. I think if you play around with your clothes and accessories, you don’t get bored of them.
Sunglasses in Winter
I have turned into a sunglasses addict, I swear, I have worn sunglasses more this Winter, than I have in previous Summers. Is it just me or has the sun been so low and so bright recently?! I love these new Next Sunglasses, the round shape, the black and white tortoiseshell design, I think they look really chic and they are perfect with my coat too!
Vintage inspired Watch
To go with my vintage tweed coat, I thought I should wear a vintage inspired watch. This art deco style time piece from Twisted Time is my current favourite. I love the way it looks so classic, until you notice the hands are bright red. It adds a really fun pop of colour!
Thanks to Adorn Girl for taking the photos!
