I am sure you have noticed lately I have been in a real obsessive Vivienne Westwood mood. Not wearing just one piece but head to toe, oh well why not! It also makes me laugh when my friend Rich does the same, we end up looking like walking Westwood mannequins!
(Rich is Wearing: Vivienne Westwood Man suit, Gold Label bag, Kurt Geiger boots)This shirtwaister dress is my absolute favourite piece of VW, I have been living in it lately but I think this is the first time I have posted it up on the blog. The design is one of Vivienne’s personal favourites too. Next time I need to get a photo of the back as it has two tail darts that stick out, it is amazing!! I can’t wait until they get some more in as I want it in a couple of different colours.
This is my friend Lisa who is the manager of Worlds End she is wearing the shirtwaister in white (I took this photo from the Worlds End website which has tons of other amazing images)
Here are two other Westwood girls wearing the dress in green and baby blue (photos from WayneTippets.com and the VW facebook page)
Hope you are all having a great weekend,

After tweeting this morning #todayiamwearing about my AP hold ups @mrsbossa, @dinoprincesschr, @OddSocksAlex and I (@pearlwestwood) go into a conversation about hold-ups and stockings. I have only just taken to wearing hold-ups since discovering that the AP ones actually do stay held up!
If you are a seasoned hold-up wearer you might be thinking ‘duh!’ but to us rookies the prospect can be quite daunting if you don’t know any better. You see every pair of hold-ups I have ever tried have never actually stayed up, some are too short, some too long, some dig in your thigh, some roll down … there are so many problems with them I had long ago given up. The AP ones are amazing though, they are just the right length, just the right width and have three rubber strips around the top to keep them in place all day. That includes getting on and off public transport, going up and down stairs, sitting down, getting up, crouching down. You name it they dodn’t budge and they are so comfy too. A bit dear yes, but well worth it as they last longer too.
Just me and my dog, Sirius look very photogenic
Char says she wears Matalan and M&S hold-ups which are good too, so we want to know if you wear hold-ups where are they from?
Update: Because I like to please you guys here is a close up of the print some of you asked about. It is a pebbled beach and always makes me think of the proper British seaside.
Here I am wearing one Starlight lash with no make-up to show you how they look. I think they really open up the eyes and I love how you can go for a more subtle or dramatic effect.
The lashes range from ┬ú2.50-┬ú3.00 which I thought was a complete bargain, they are also reusable so even better.
Do you have any expert lash tips?
What do you think of false lashes?
In yesterdays post I mentioned I had to dash out quick to pick up a last minute sales bargain, here it is … socks!
Not just any old socks but Vivienne Westwood socks. I really love her statement socks but have to begrudge paying ┬ú60 for them full price so I always wait for the sales. As soon as I found out these were reduced I couldn’t wait to get them. I also got tights with flames up the legs, another thing I had been after for ages.
Agent Provocateur (Created by Vivienne Westwood’s son Joe Corre) also has a a brilliant sale on so I treated myself. I bought the Melody set
, you can check it out online yourselves I draw the line at showing you my pants!
Anyone else found any last minute sales goodies?

Oh dear look at me wearing a ‘classic’ outfit! It always makes me sneer when I read those magazine features which tell you your life will be complete upon owning a white shirt, Breton top, trench coat, blah, blah, blah. Sure it is an easy formula to follow for a smart, simple look but everyone looking the same is not for me. That said I do own some of these classic items, I think most people do. Yet I never wear them together, so I have no idea why I am wearing a ‘crisp white shirt’ and ‘blue jeans’. It was one of those get dress in 5mins, pull on random clothes that look clean. I don’t hate this look, but neither do I really love it either. Given more time I think I would have added something, but out of the moment now I am not sure what. In my mind I was thinking of wearing a purple jersey dress over the jeans and shoes, but it was creased, I pulled out a pink floral vintage top but it needed something ‘else’ something I didn’t have time to find.
You will also see up close the shirt is crumpled as I had a good faff tying it in a knot, tucking it in. The of course I had to take a quick photo – note the edgy garage door, no time for my usual brick wall!
Where was I going in such a rush you might now be wondering? Last minute sales shopping at the Trafford Center an hour before closing and so you see the sales shopping demons have made a reappearance. You will laugh even more when you see what the emergency item was, but I will save that for now,
