Mean kids and ants

ThankFifi-Mango-3

shirt – Autograph @ M&S (last worn here)
playsuit – Mango (first worn here in the first post EVER 1 year ago)
shoe, leather bag  – Autograph @ M&S
sunglasses – Mango
watch – Calvin Klein, bracelets – various

lead – Ancol
coat – model’s own c/o Infindigo

I guess it’s appropriate, although unintentional, that one year on I should be wearing the exact same playsuit I wore in my very first post, albeit styled differently.  It just goes to show that there’s a very good reason I should continue to hoard and increase the huge pile (ok, 3 piles) of floordrobe that has evolved like a Tracy Emin installation in the bedroom.  I wear it all… eventually.

In an effort to make the suit more work-friendly I added the classic oxford shirt.  Usually I spend my working day at my desk with my friend (let’s call him Mr MacBook).  This day I spent it on the floor trimming fabric with the sun blazing through the window creating something a bit like what mean kids do to ants with magnifying glasses – if the ants were sporting layers.  Not ideal.  (Maybe that’s why I’m scratching my head in the last shot?).  Can’t win ‘em all!

    Love your unintentional but so expressive gesture of wearing the same outfit as in your virgin post!! 🙂 It goes to show how much you’ve grown but maintained your original driving spirit!!

    ps the ant-magnifying glass was the perfect metaphor! 🙂

      I suppose so – although my style has undoubtedly evolved it has in essence also remained true to me. Well said.x

      ha I totally don’t but thanks… funny story now… one day at work myself and a colleague were chatting about one of my fashion posts and she said ‘you’re totally doing that bum-out-thin-legs pose aren’t you?’ I was. It works. Our boss overheard and was horrified we knew this trick that she did not. Ha! Probably not something one should admit on the internet but there you go! Smoke and mirrors 😉

      ooh I haven’t seen it yet but I bet it is! the trick with m&s I find is to stick to autograph and limited collection and pretty much ignore the rest (unless you need undies or a good dinner!).x
