One of the items that seems to have dominated my small wardrobe recently, is this full black mesh skirt. I find myself constantly gravitating towards it, and it gets a look in, at least once a week. It is so easy to dress up or down, and flatters my boyish figure beautifully. The interesting truth is, had I not seen this at a press preview, and been given the opportunity of it been gifted to me, I would not have gone down to the shops to buy it for myself, yet now, I can’t stop wearing it!
As a Stylist and Blogger, lots of perks and gifts do come my way, and whilst some of the gifts might not be to my liking, I find myself experimenting with others, that then directly affect my sense of style, and lead to new outfits in my wardrobe.
Whilst I think this skirt is quite girly and goes against my general styles, which are usually more shabby chic, or androgynous, I must say, I like the mesh fabric, the structure, the colour and the way it sits on the body. It also allows me to create so many outfits, without it being obvious, that I am wearing the same piece, 2 or 3 times a week – That said, I have no problem wearing an outfit twice in a week. Clothes are for wearing, you just need to change a few accessories or make-up. I have had this skirt for just over three months, but it is so versatile, I can see myself wearing it for a long time.
Anyway, I don’t often share images of my day to day outfits, but as I haven’t posted for a while – (and for this I must apologise to all you my lovely readers. I have just been busy on other projects, and doing life. The good news is, I am back and full of ideas, so watch this space, because I’ll be firing out lots of useful content, and more often too – I promise*_*) – and fellow blogger Kinga took these lovely shots, I thought it would be a shame, for them to just sit in my hard drive.
