After the success of yesterday’s outfit post, I thought I’d attempt another. I admit, the photographs today don’t have such great, natural lighting but I hope the outfit itself is clear. I’m wearing my black lace up ankle boots from Chockers (yes, they literally haven’t left my feet all weekend), a black long cardigan/jacket from Mina and a black lace dress from ASOS that I cut up (I changed the scalloped hem to a straight hem).
The jacket itself is from Mina, and is basically an extra long cardigan with a slight waterfall effect at the front and ribbed shoulder detailing. I think it’s really unusual and although it’s not something I’d normally go for, I actually really like it with this outfit. I’m hoping to scout out a fur gilet from somewhere and see how that looks with the jacket. The jacket also comes in a beige/pink-y colour which I think is really lovely, however I just thought I’d get lots more use out of a black cardigan as it goes with more. It is £45 online at Mina, which I think is a great investment, as its a staple piece to your outfit and can be worn over a variety of different styles. I wouldn’t describe it as ‘normal’ cardigan material, as its much softer and made with cotton – however, its equally as warm and comfortable.
With regards to my shoes, I have written a post about them today – as I’ve had lots of people ask me where they were from. They are literally so comfy (despite appearances) and I wore them with with black socks today – not quite sure why.
I also forgot to mention yesterday when I posted about my lovely Mina dress, that if you are looking for some great luxury bargains, then you should head over to their sale. Most items are £10 – £15 and there are some beautiful dresses and jackets in similar designs to those spotted on celebrities. If you’re a TOWIE fan – this jacket is rather similar to one that Billie and Georgina Dorsett have been sporting recently, and this gorgeous float-y petal print skirt is definitely something Lydia Bright would wear. Let me know what you think of Mina’s online store, I’d love to know what you think about my picks.
