May(de): 60’s Schoolgirl

Blouse:Β Dorothy Perkins

Cardigan: Crossroads

Skirt: “Vintage” (Probably homemade) via Bombshell Vintage

Shoes: Chie Mihara

I’m feeling QUITE pleased with today’s outfit! I don’t know if it’s because this the first time in a week where I’ve been home early enough to catch some daylight coming in the window, or whether it’s the combination of bright red cardigan and multicoloured vintage skirt. Whatever it is, I’ve dubbed this my 60’s Catholic Schoolgirl outfit, and it’s a hit with The Sophisticate.

I think it’s the scalloped peter pan collar that really MAKES this outfit, and it’s made me realise how obsessed I’ve become with this Dorothy Perkins blouse (which is on sale forΒ only twelve quid. Just sayin’). I’ve decided that my wardrobe needs MOAR peter pan collars, and I think I’ll try making my own detachable version as a DIY project this weekend. Maybe.

There’s a reasonably easy-looking tutorial on Honestly WTF, but there’s a few differing elements I’ve got in mind (which depends on what supplies I can find) so we’ll see. I might have to cobble together a project from different sources,

Stay tuned, I guess!

  1. You look so cute! That print skirt is amazing. I don’t own any peter pan collars but looking at this outfit makes me want to remedy that!

  2. Hey lili, cute outfit. I need to warn you about the shirt though. I have the same one from DP’s in purple. I bought it last year in late October. I would say I haven’t worn it more than 10 times? So it’s only been washed that many times. Anyway, this week when I pulled the blouse from the washing machine I noticed that the collar hadn’t just frayed but fallen apart! I followed all the washing instructions but I consider that really shoddy workmanship. I hope you have better luck than me as I’m really disappointed.

  3. Lilli, I agree–the Peter Pan collar on this blouse makes this outfit shine! Although, the skirt is fantastic! What’s not to love about this outfit? The brooch is adorable and so you! You look wonderful. It’s no wonder this outfit meets the Sophisticate’s approval! πŸ™‚

  4. Your outfit is so CUTE! The contrasting strap on your Mary Janes, the candy brooch, the perfect flip of your hair… This Catholic schoolgirl gets an A+.

  5. Love, love, love, love, love. My favourite so far for mayde. So enjoying seeing lots more posts from you this month.
