Street Style Manchester: Christine

Christine, Manchester, Vivienne Westwood

Frequent visitors to this blog will have already met Christine. My dear friend always looks utterly fabulous and never conforms to the tired old rules glossy magazines┬á like to spout about what is ‘age appropriate’. Beautiful Italian glasses, comfy Doc Martin boots and lashings of Vivienne Westwood make Christine’s signature look stand out from the crowd, understated chic at it’s best. The dress she is wearing is a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label ‘Gigot’ dress, I have the same dress in different fabrics, a simple white cotton and printed Union Jack. I actually wore my white Gigot on the same day but I doubt anyone would have recognised them as the same dress. I always think it is fascinating to see how different people choose to wear the same things, I always wonder about how designers feel to see their pieces walking down the street!

Street Style: Westwood Darlings

Had to share this photo I took of my wonderful friends Chris and Christine, both head to toe in Vivienne Westwood – except Christine’s Dr Martins boots which are from the new Agyness Deyn collection, though we have doubts about how much designing she did. Christine is always being stopped by street style photographers, she says it puts a smile on her face. Love you guys!

Even the socks are Squiggle! With bright blue shoes.
