if music be the food of love, play on

The title of this post bears no relevance to the context whatsoever.

However, I was totally stumped for a title and took inspiration from Mr Shakespeare himself. I loved studying his works whilst I was at school, and have started re-reading Twelfth Night, from which this quote derives.

Anyway, I am shameful to say that yet again, this outfit completely heralds from one shop, and one shop only. H&M. I feel I should issue a disclaimer: I am in no way sponsored, badgered or bullied by H&M to feature their clothes! The skirt is in keeping with the ‘granny chic’ style that is reverberating around the stores at the moment. It is knee-length and black button-fronted, with an elasticated waist. The lace top is ancient, but with shoulder pads and the delicate embroidered floral patterns, it seems to compliment many an outfit. The stole featured in a recent outfit post and does adorn my neck quite regularly at the moment whilst this chilly breeze persists. 

On my lips I am wearing Violetta by MAC, which is a killer lipstick. My hair is pinned up in my rudimentary beehive, up do. I hope you are enjoying more outfit posts? I know my tripod and I are having a whale of a time!

I hope you have all had delightful weekends.

    You look stunning- I especially love your lippie and your hair.

    You pull the granny chic look off well. I remember seeing it heavily in Christopher Kane's collection; granny chic pieces in neon brights. I wasn't really feeling it, which is strange because usually I'm feeling his work.

    Is the lace top a top or a body, there a lot of bodies around at the moment as well.

    I'm still loving the fur scarf, did you end up attempting to sew one into a coat or cardigan?

    I love the lace top!

  30. 1st February 2011 / 7:52 pm
