Monochrome and Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo


So sorry that I have neglected my blog, I have been very distracted with moving back to Oxford and moving house! I hope all you student readers are having a good time at Uni or college and the workload/alcohol/ lack of sleep isn't tiring you out already!

Today I am wearing my "smart" outfit which you can wear to work, an interview or drinks if you are feeling particularly sophisticated.
I have opted for the monochrome look which means (for those who don't know) all black and white. Monochrome is also an excuse to wear my favourite white blazer. I know you've seen it before but I love it too much so you'll probably see it a lot more!! The material is really soft and silky and would fit anyone really well, so I recommend buying one!!

My favourite bit about this outfit is the bag. Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo..... enough said. Unfortunately its not's my housemate's. She found it in her attic as it used to be her Gran's.  I love the heavy gold chain and structural shape. It's one of those bags that can be worn with anything, so I'm hoping to borrow it more if she'll let me (hint hint) !!

Hope to all the students who read this are enjoying their freshers week, I know I have!!

Yours always.

Green Studded Tweed with a LBD


My sister called this outfit, "First Lady with Studs" which is exactly what it is. The tweed jacket looks slightly less dowdy with a single stud line going across the shoulder. This is a smart jacket but it still looks good with a pale blue pair of jeans. The dress is simple but is a good base for any outfit! 

Yet another one of my massive necklaces but I couldn't resist buying this one! It reminded me of a little matching necklace and bracelet I had when I was little.

The clutch is again one of many studded items. This one also has a strap so you can wear it as a shoulder bag. I plan on using this at uni so I don't lose my bag when out on town!! This bag is versatile, you can use it for the Rock Glam look or just to add a bit of "attitude" (cringe!) to your outfit.

Finally I hope everyone is enjoying New York Fashion Week, and getting some great tips for Spring 2013!
Carolina Herrera, Diane Von Furstenburg and Herve Leger by Max Azria are my favourites so far. Love the sorbet colours from Herrera and DVF and the prints from Herve Leger by Max Azria. Let me know what you think, either here or on Twitter - @TheOnlyMissP ! 

Yours always,
