aldo

A grey area...

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

I think I pretty much complain about the weather every time I post on my blog! and of course today is no exception, Im starting to break into my autumn winter wardrobe saying the weather here makes me feel like its November rather than September.. the vest tops and
sun shimmer and have been banished for another year.
This is probably one of my favourite items in my wardrobe at the minute because Ive worn it like a million times and never get bored of it and its pretty effortless...I dunno what you'd call it
like a chemise/tunic/ grey thing? Its pretty opaque so Ive teamed it with a little black slip dress underneath and nipped it in at the waist with a wrap around studded belt from Topshop..

Grey tunic thingy: Designer Sample from work, Black slip: Topshop, Heart tights and studded belt: also Topshop, Brogues: Aldo, Necklace: Asos

Did anyone go crazy with the 15% off asos autumn collection yesterday? I have so many things saved in my wish list that I want but i need to wish up some money to get them first or some to buy them for me.. haha hint hint dave! (just kidding) I did end up buying two dresses in the sale
reduced to under £20 that although are summer dresses im gonna pair them with thick knits and over the knee socks and make them work for winter..

GIVEAWAY coming soon I promise apologies im so terribly unorganized.. i need a few more hours in the day!

  34. Love this outfit - your tunic dress thingy is fab! The floaty fabric is perfect for autumn with chunky knits and a heavy belt.

    I was very restrained and only bought a pair of suede platforms from ASOS with the code... I had a £20 gift voucher too, so they ended up costing £12! Bargain. :) xx

  35. Wow, that is a lovely dress and I think it will look great with a big, chunky knit sweater, too.
    Believe it or not - I've never bought anything from Asos, so no going crazy for me yesterday. xo
