Thankfifi- Clements Ribeiro & the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival-3

My look from the Clements Ribeiro show was something of a floral humbug.

I ordered a bunch of pieces in the sales, some high end (like the pants, sold out now sorry) and some not, and yet when the package arrives you get a sense pretty quickly whether it’s full of glittering unicorns or big ol’ duds.  When I pulled these printed pretties from their packet (alliteration for dramatic effect) a whole herd of unicorns pranced right through my tiny fashion blogger mind.  It was love.

I decided to give the cropped trend a whirl – not so easily perfected by anyone over the age of 16 but I have some rules to stick by: above the belly button please and pick well fitting pieces (I love muffins as much as the next girl but not the kind that bulge over waistbands).

And the Clements Ribeiro jacket.  You know why.

Happy Friday friends – let’s have all have a good one.x

crop tee – River Island
wide leg pant – Alice & Olivia (budget here & here, blow the budget here)
wedge – UGG  Australia via Daniel (last worn here)
jacket – Clements Ribeiro (first worn here)

    Beautiful print……….I just viewed the F/W 2013 video on his site. Bravo! Well worth a look! Fabulous designer. Love the high necklines, collars, and beautiful metallic/foil brocades. He’s now my favorite designer.

      thanks charlotte – I think the full pants balance the crop

    It was so easy to spot you in the garden: even before I identified the jacket (the give-away clue) you stood out for the boldness and eccentric elegance. On trend but totally on your terms! Xxx
