Blouse: Inspyre @ Harris Scarfe
Oooh – It’s one of those rare, colourless days for your blogger here! Quickly remedied, because gal-pal Fiona and I went and got our fingers and toesies painted this afternoon in anticipation of her big Not-A-Wedding-Party tomorrow. Fiona went with a most elegant french polish, but when I spotted a glittery scarlet, turned the bottle over and discovered it was a Wizard of Oz themed polish called “Ruby Pumps” I was sold. Even as I’m typing this I’m doing many speeling mistajes because I’m distracted by how alarmingly wonderful my nails look right now.
Well, my outfit may look a little severe, but there’s a little frou-frou still – check out the frilly hem on the skirt:
I think the black looks lovely! And that skirt frill is adorable. It’s such a cute little “librarian” type look. (And I’m a librarian, so I should know!)
Librarians are the BEST! I sell kids books, and deal with a few librarians, and they’re a lovely bunch of people 🙂
A true Melbourne -ite look there with all the black! But once in a while black just has to do! I like the idea of red nail varnish! I would be sold on that name! I once bought an eye shadow because it was called Pixie Dust!! Funny how a name can persuade you to buy something!
Yeah! The varnish is FAB – It’s a few days in now, and nary a scuff. I’m going to have to see if I can find some in the shops!
So cute!!! I have on a black sweater today about that shape. Wish I had that blouse!!!
It was such an impulse buy – I love it! Thanks for commenting 🙂
Like Erin said, you seem like a librarian, a lovely librarian!!!!
Kisses from Brazil, again!!!
Thankyou Nanda 🙂 I work with kids books, so it’s pretty close actually, lol 🙂
Very chic! Greetings, Lola
Thanks Lola 🙂
I love this look, it gives you great shape!
Have you seen this new mag in the U.K.
Thanks Vanessa :), and thanks for the link too – I hadn’t heard of them, but I’ll check ’em out now!
Classy, chic and oh so cute! Love, love the playful ruffle in the back of the skirt and the blouse–I want it!
Thanks Bella 🙂 The ruffle really makes the skirt, I thought.
a great black outfit, very Melbourne..
You have many pairs of shoes bit a big hole in the repertoire screams out – a good pair of black heels 😀 (just shows what a big obsession I have with shoes)
Heels, baby, yeas!
Oh, I’ve got black heels – they’re just in DESPERATE need of re-heeling, and I haven’t quite got around to it yet 😀
Omg, this is my favourite look I’ve seen on you in a while. You should do the city librarian thing more often! 😀
LOL, thanks Danielle 🙂 It’s all about the spectacles!
not severe at all! Very approachable, very 50’s, very gorgeous. Black&white polka dots are the business. I just came across a mention of your blog a few days ago in a German magazine – you wearing your beautiful red&white ruffled DIY skirt. Had to have a look, and have told at least 4 people about it since then…
Your blog is a pleasure to read, and very inspiring. Thanks for the great work!
Best wishes 🙂
PS: all the red boots + denim skirt outfits are fabulous!!!
Thankyou! I’m so glad you found me and that you’re enjoying reading! Thankyou for commenting, too 🙂
I love, i love i luuuuurve. 🙂
LOL, thanks Nabila 🙂
Oooh, that frilly hem is *so* cute!
It’s a winner, isn’t it? Thank God it’s so stretchy, I was really excited when it fit (Portmans usually doesn’t)
It really is! And though the dots don’t photograph that well I imagine it looks great in person!
Hi, I found your blog through the German magazine Maxi. I love your style, you’re beautiful!
Thankyou, Barbara – I’m so glad you found me, thanks for commenting 🙂
You look fantastic! This outfit shows off your figure so well 🙂
Thanks Anjali 🙂
love this outfit, especially the blouse – so chic!
Thanks Ariana 🙂 The blouse was such an impulse buy, I’m thrilled with it
That dress is so beautiful. And it looks amazing on you!
sooo very late to the party on this post – hopefully you still see the comments! i missed the transition to the new blog via my rss & thought you were on hiatus – tragedy! thank goodness i get to do all of this catching up now… lovely stockings — brand??
I’m glad you’ve found me again! I think the stocking are from Ambra, actually 🙂
That outfit is killer on you. I LOVE it.
