Style me Sexy.
How hard is style sometimes? You all saw how AWESOME I rocked the ASOS CURVE Floral Workwear Dress, but honestly? I didn't find this the easiest dress to style with a Jacket. I have a couple of leather jackets, baby boleros, shrugs, cardigans... NONE of them were working. And then I had a thought.
Recently, via my facebook, I sold a brand new First Release Beth Ditto Piece - the Cropped Biker Jacket. On Sunday, I realised I had not seen MY version of that jacket in AGES (I originally bought two and sold the one I had not worn yet). So I hunted for it. Hunted and hunted.
FINDING the jacket was a triumph, in moving in with Mr. Darcy a while back I'd changed wardrobes, the jacket lay at the bottom of my closet - having fallen off its hanger in the early days of settling in. I have to say, the Beth Ditto Jacket looks KICK ARSE with the dress. Darcy wasn't around to take my pics - but you can see from the shot above, it works. I LOVE this jacket and had forgotten just how amazingly it was made (I seriously feel the First Ditto Collection kicked arse over most (but not all) of the second Collection).
And where did I go looking so fierce? Haircut! You all know I have been growing my hair, right? Well, Belinda - my hairdresser at The Painted Lady suggested a little softness and style now that the length is coming along. My first months of growing have seen me ache for length without too much regard form shape.
She gave me some shape. I LOVE IT.
