Wearing: Vivienne Westwood Gold Label ‘Mao’ jacket, ‘Pinch’ dress, ‘Bag’ boots and duffel bag
Just a quickie phone snap of one of my favourite outfits at the moment. I was lucky enough to be invited to a private sale for Vivienne Westwood Gold label and Red Carpet collections (thanks Mika for the reminder) and of course I picked out the two most casual things in the entire shop! Much as I was longing for the stunning floor length gowns and sequin cocktail dresses I don’t have much need of them in my life. That didn’t stop me and my friends going wild and getting dressed up, I was even in a wedding dress at one point (evidence is on my facebook page!)
I have worn both the dress and jacket to death since I got them. The dress is a grey knit with silver and gold threads running through it so it can be dressed up or down. I wore it without a jacket, with black suede court shoes for a party last week. It has raw edges and have already started to unravel on the hems, I think it looks really cool. The Mao jacket is the same cut as the Chinese print one I got earlier in the summer. It is such a great shape, you can wear a belt over it too which I like. I’m rather tempted to put pins and badges all over this jacket, but the material wouldn’t take them being removed, they will have to stay there if I do, best give it some thought.
