Day 760 - A Puzzle Made Of Pieces You Can't Find

Shoes: Pink glitter 'Antibes' Carvela

I'm going to do a quick post on this jumper over on Pink Haired Princess, possibly later tonight.  I never wear jumpers!  I rarely wear separates and certainly felt out of my comfort zone, but wanted to try something different.  Like an X-Factor judge would say I wanted to "make it my own" and hope I have.  I've never been very good at layering, so that was all new to me too!  Anyway these shoes were just perfect to lift the outfit.  I'd bought a size bigger in these (because it was the only size in stock) and when they first arrived, I was so glad I did, because they seemed very small.  They did feel too big today when I was out walking though, even with these super thick (fleece lined) tights.  My arches and ankles were aching, so I cut the walk short and got home as quick as my legs would carry me!  Definitely need insoles for next time!

Wearing:  Unicorn jumper ASOS, black skirt, tights and hat all Primark, crochet collar dress (worn underneath) Dorothy Perkins, belt taken from another dress.
Fit:  Slim fit, but take your usual size.  4 1/2" heel.
Comfort:  Let's hope they get better next time with the insoles.

  1. I love that jumper and you've pulled that look off beautifully! It actually looks like a dress if you don't look too closely ;) I think I may have to be inspired by you and attempt something similar with a jumper I have (although I fear it is too chunky) if you don't mind? I just think the look is gorgeous on you!!

    1. Thank you! Yeah I think because it's all black it's helped. This one is pretty chunky, so I didn't think it would work with the belt and because of my large bust, it pulls the front length up even more (which is already supposed to be shorter than the back) which made it boxy, but the belt saved that in the end.

  2. I think you look cute-I can never pull of the sweater look either due to norkage. And I soooooooooo want those pretty pink shoes-they would have been amazing with my wedding dress damnit!!

    Question for you-am going out in a couple of weeks and am planning to wear the green grecian pearl lowe dress from the 2011 xmas collection. What shoes do you think I should wear? was planning to style it with some gold jewellery and a leopard print faux fur-which my pals hate btw!-but dont have a clue about shoes. Thanks x

    1. thank you! I never got the green dress but I can remember it well-I think playing up the grecian theme with strappy sandals if you have any, would work well with your accessories too. Or what about heeled shoe-boots? Would the length of the dress work with that? x
