The ultimate Seventies shirt
Shirt: Vintage eBay, Jeans: Very, Shoes: Melissa at ASOS, Clutch: Faith, Pendant watch: ASOS similar, Bracelets: Topshop/ASOS/F+F, Nails: Barry M Gold np289
It's a long time since I wanted an item on eBay this much... there was no way anyone was going to bid more than me on a sheer Seventies shirt with massive collars and a little woodland scene of trees, a cottage and ducks. It was love at first sight, partly because it brought back memories of a similarly patterned t-shirt my mum wore in the Seventies, and I thought that was the coolest item of clothing ever.
I styled it very simply - when an item is this loud it does the statement-making all by itself. But I still managed a bit of pattern-mixing (I just can't help myself) with the tie-dyed suede clutch which, strangely, I do find hard to pair up with outfits... must try harder.
(I should just say that I know I've made the classic celebrity faux-pas of wearing underwear that was too light for a photo: the camisole was flesh-coloured and completely invisible in daylight and indoors, but under a sheer shirt photographed with a flash it just looks white. My bad ;)
Hope you like my latest eBay find - I've had a bit of a eBay/thrifting splurge over the last week or so and have lots of items to work into outfits. Can't wait!
