Some of my winter staples; leggings, tunics, layering, boots, long jackets, statement accessories....... what are your staples? šŸ„‚

Celebrating a family member's significant birthday called for a joyful ensemble.
I started with my leggings by @gloryboxdesigns then went straight to my buckle booties ..... to balance the boots I chose this tunic (with pockets) by @designbyjude
A striped layering top added the necessary warmth and interest then what I consider to be my "piece de resistance" the vintage gold Chinese jacket that @mypersnlstylist generously gave me ........ Pattern matching heaven - floral, stripes and graffiti combined with texture, embroidery and studs ......
Next accessories, some may go quietly but not me! I've gone with this amazing statement necklace from @elizas.boutique with my @trelisecooper cuff and my @angelaclarkboutique Swarovski crystal moon earrings because I am loving this combination to the moon and back! šŸ„‚

Introducing my #memademay pants ..... #butterick6327 ...... can you see what I'm pointing at? Oopsie, but I'm accepting the mistake and going with "it's a design feature" ...... what would you have done? šŸ˜…

The obvious styling choice would be to have gone with an all silver/grey ensemble but as I don't do obvious I've thrown on my burnished gold dragon heels and balanced them out with the pops of warmth in the fluffy vest ...... Pant fabric from @theclothshopivanhoe
Dragon heels by @prestonzly
Silver knit from @elizas.boutique
Furry vest several years old
Vintage crystal earrings from @angelaclarkboutique šŸ˜…

Umbrellas! A often under utilised accessory in the arsenal....... ā˜”

Wintery weather loves pinstripes, tartan and stripes combined with faux fur, crystals and a vintage buckle.....
So we started with my @sadotna tartan pants paired back with my red and navy striped knit my woollen pinstripe vest adds interest and works perfectly because navy is the common denominator in the three pieces ......
The navy continues to pulling everything together with my #memade statement necklace I made at a @angelaclarkboutique "right-angle beading" class ...... and my fluffy earrings and my crystal bracelets....... ā˜”

In military, camouflage and the most AMAZING coat ...... ever so thankful it was finally cold enough to wear it ...... swipe for more pics ...... šŸŒ¬

Before you ask about the coat I need to tell you that it was gifted to me by @bloglessanna ..... she wasn't wearing it and thought I would! She was so on the money! I adore it and feel blessed to be the custodian of such a great coat ......
Underneath I've layered my @repertoire_nz military jacket, a very, very old t-shirt and my mens camouflage jeans ...... a fairly tame ensemble to attend my god-daughter's "grandparents and special friends day" at school ...... I'm feeling blessed on so many levels..... šŸŒ¬

There are two teams:
a. ballerinas and
b. women who wear tulle and may wish they were ...... šŸ’–

I definitely fall (often literally) into team b and I accept that..... so here I am wearing my @trelisecooper pink tulle skirt in my "not to be confused with a real ballerina" way ......
I love the way the pink plays with and picks up the colours in my @mickyinthevan skivvy and stirrup pants ...... My @jeffreycampbell tartan shoes add my unexpected twist as well as adding a fun pattern clash......
Given that the ensemble as a whole is far from pretty I felt I could add my vintage crystal earrings from @angelaclarkboutique for the mandatory sparkle ...... šŸ’–

Challenge was to wear a swim shirt and gym tights without looking like I was either exercising or swimming...... šŸ¬

Huge thank you to @caprioscaswimwear for sending me these two beautiful pieces to do my thing with .......
Whilst denim was an obvious choice I wanted their debut to be special so I started with my sheer dress ...... layering a black and white striped tee underneath, rolling up the sleeves and the swim shirt is now a jacket ...... socks and heels elevate the gym tights whilst adding another print into the mix ...... my @angelaclarkboutique vintage crystal earrings add just the right amount of sparkle to finish off todays challenge...... #wouldyouwear #challengeaccepted šŸ¬

There'll be no raining on your parade when your outfit consists of sequins, tassels, ruffles and glitter ...... šŸ’–

Sequin jumpsuit by @mickyinthevan
Shirt by @cubecclothing
Sunglasses picked up somewhere in my travels

It's serious-ish business when walking downstairs .......
šŸ·
...... in my pleated @sadotna coat! For it's football debut it's playing beautifully with a selection of pieces (some very old) from my wardrobe like my greatly loved frilled silk shirt, my @repertoire_nz satin pants, my @habbot shoes, my @missflapper turban, a brooch I picked up years ago from a little shop in the Arab quarter in Singapore and the socks ...... a touch of Tokyo from my beautiful friend @simonemac.....and as I draw breath the obi belt made by me from vintage kimono fabric...... šŸ·

Chuffed with my cuffs ....... what's better than one signature cuff? Two! šŸ˜

I was so very happy with this ensemble...... it all started with my amazing @alfia_by_alfia_galimova one sleeve shirt that I wore over my trusty striped tee ..... then I grabbed my @alistairtrung nylon skirt, winter white wool tights, checked socks and booties ...... slight hiccup as the skirt was too long to notice the tights and sock layering so I pinned one side up ..... now to the accessories.
My first thought was my @angelaclarkboutique bejewelled kerchief teamed with crystal heart earrings and I was happy with that but something was missing..... then I thought what about wearing just one of my @signaturecuffstx cuffs ..... Voila! Outfit completed! šŸ˜

Yes! It's time to welcome the Joker skirt back! šŸ¤”

I love this skirt so much ....... it's a one-off @yahav_paris99 original and it's so much fun to wear ....... today I've teamed it back with a leather jacket that would easily be a decade old and I'm not jokering when I tell you I'm wearing my @swedishstockings fishnets over black opaques ....... oohhhhh the options are endless when layering hosiery ....... would you dare to wear? šŸ¤”

Here's the culprit! The jacket I spied on @evaladiesboutique instagram and knew it would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe...... šŸŒž

Now that I know there are many others who are in love with this colour I'm actually feeling very chuffed that I managed to grab this ..... I've teamed it back with an olive pleated skirt, a blue burnt velvet blouse with cranes; just so the cranes don't get lonely my flamingo earrings and tartan booties ..... pretty simple hey?
I must let you in on a secret - When I purchased the amazing blouse fabric from @theclothshopivanhoe .... I envisaged this blouse but I lacked the courage (and skill) to bring it to fruition ..... BUT thankfully there are excellent, professional seamstresses on hand and I happily paid for it to be made for me ...... Jacket @evaladiesboutique
Blouse fabric @theclothshopivanhoe
Skirt @repertoire_nz
Boots @jeffreycampbell
Earrings @myra_goes_to_florence šŸŒž

Is anyone else currently obsessed with yellow/mustard...... surely I'm not the only one? šŸ’›

Confession time - so earlier this week I popped into @evaladiesboutique in Northcote and walked out with not one ..... not two ..... but THREE yellow/mustard garments this cotton knit being one of them! Could it be an addiction? Anyway I was so excited because my @missflapper turban and @swedishstockings were the perfect match ...... so I teamed them all up with my denim skirt and socks with tights - because it spells fun and I'm a firm believer that dressing should be fun!
My @angelaclarkboutique
neckpiece complete with vintage buckle finished off this ensemble...... šŸ’›
