May(de) Coppertop

Blouse: Dorothy Perkins

Vest: Target

Skirt: Kelda Leigh

Shoes: Chie Mihara

First off: Yes, I’ve had a haircut. And yes, I’ve had my hair dyed, too. It’s a lovely coppery colour that is gorgeous and warm in person, and – it turns out – looks downright peculiar against the copper doors in photos. Apologies for the quality of these pictures, I had to tweak the hell out of the colour grading so that my new ‘do didn’t look green!

Still, I’m sure you’ll get another chance to see this skirt in May(de), as it’s one of my favourite winter pieces.

I bought this simple, a-line wool skirt from Kelda Leigh at Sydney’s Paddington Markets almost two years ago to the day, and though her store looks like it’s undergoing a bit of a transformation at the moment (there’s a new winter range coming, according the the site) it’s a good one to keep your eye on, because the skirts are beautifully made, and she both custom-sizes and posts internationally.

I always seem to wear this skirt with these particular Chie Mihara’s – it seems a shame not too – the colours match perfectly! To see a more true to life view of the skirt check out my original review… Sometimes I miss that wall (and that lighting!)

  1. Absolutely love the hair! The colour and the cute look amazing! I too have had a haircut – check it out if you have time!. I like the shirt but I really really love the blouse. The collar is so cool! I wish DP would go up a few more sizes. I can squeeze into a stretchy 22 but I would love to wear pretty much every thing it sells.

    1. Thanks Claire! I love the platinum pixie cut, it really suits you well! I bought the blouse in the 16 (I’d normally buy an 18 from DP) and sewed up the front so the buttons didn’t gape – there’s no stretch, but it’s reasonably roomy…

    1. Thanks Lynne,
      It had been ages since I’d last ordered from Dorothy Perkins, but I loved the look of the collar on this blouse, so I decided to indulge. So glad I did, it’s great!

  2. Love the top. I have a very similar vest that I’ve been looking at in my cupboard for the last couple of weeks, waiting for cooler weather so I can wear it.

  3. I was with you that day – to think it’s been TWO YEARS since the Paddo markets when you bought that skirt from the lovely Kelda Leigh. Time for a repeat visit!
