|Watch out Sea of Shoes, Blighty's coming!|
Time to let you into Blighty's styling secrets, once again.
You know all those lovely, pretty, young (sound of Blighty weeping), golden-limbed (yeah, we get the point, carry on and I'll stick my ageing head in a bucket) fashion bloggers? They appear to put together these darling little outfits effortlessly...they really have no idea how it should be done...
So here is a step by step guide from a woman of
Decide to wear your black cashmere cardigan as it
|Pure Cashmere (with side order of mash)|
Decide to pair it with a pencil skirt, to flatter the cardigan's cropped length
|Warehouse (as in should go back to?)|
Wonder what possessed you to buy a skirt in such a violent mustard colour and with a tight elastic band at the waist and an ugly clunking great zip at the back
Remove mustard horror, select another skirt
Repeat Step 4 about 5 times
Try horizontal stripe skirt - fine until catch sight of backside in mirror
|Primark, cheap as chips and jolly comfy but best with long black top over to cover multitude of shins|
|Ancient H&M - hello, i'm artistic..|
Try floaty black skirt with interesting hem - you just look mad/gothic
|Ancient M&S - hello, where's the sherry?|
Feel incredibly cross with self and at huge pile of discarded skirts..
Stick on red skirt and finally get on with day... ignore the fact that you now look like a post box..
|H&M - old, hello, where are my sunglasses?|
And that my dahlings, is how to style an outfit..
|prehistoric Emporio Armani from the days when I got paid every month - hello, i'm professional but a bit sexy..grrrrrr|
