daily outfit

Fan your feathers like a Peacock...

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Sorry for the lack of posts and replying to comments the past few days, the charity fashion show I was doing was on Monday night which was a blur of hairspray, wedding dresses, flashes of cameras..but I must say it was an amazing night. I crawled into bed just after midnight and my alarm woke me up at a delightful 4.30am to get my flight to London for the Matalan Catwalk video and photoshoot, which was an amazing day where I meet some lovely other bloggers and took about a zillion photos to share with you..

But first! Now that I am home and have had a few hours sleep to recover for the past three days... I am happy to reveal the newest Take Ten Challange! We have a new gang member to welcome too, the lovely Leia unfortunately left the UK to go home with her boyfriend so our newest addition is the lovely Nic from Vint Junky a fellow Northern Irish blogger too! :)










Trench coat: Bellissima, Dress: c/o Peacocks, Boots: River Island, Tights: H&M,
Belt: Asos, Feather hairband: Primark

Be sure to check out the other lovely ladies, (in order) Shini, Leia, Saskia, Sarah, Sherin, Sabine, Moi, Jen, MJ, Nic

This challenge was sponsored by the lovely Peacocks.. they sent us all this cadbury purple chiffon Pearl Lowe dress. I tried the dress on first and loved the shape, the quality and the long sleeves..its slightly longer than dresses I would normally wear, which in my head makes it more dressy than day wear. I wore this dress out last week and layered it up with a trench coat, boots and thick ribbed tights in shades of grey as its pretty much freezing here.. then pulled it in at the waist with my trusty asos waistbelt. I dont wear my hair up that often..i think its a confidence thing, so I attempted a messy bun and feather hair band to jazz it up.. what do you think?

  10. I'm really impressed by how differently everyone has styled this dress. It looks great with all the tones of grey you've used - must check out H&M for those tights after the 'mare I've had with my Primark pair.

  13. You look lovely Vicki! A fab way to style the dress - I have those H&M tights too, aren't they the best? I'm so fussy when it comes to hosiery and take ribbed tights perhaps a little too seriously...!
