A quickly thrown-together outfit from last Saturday morning. I'd literally only just finished the dress and was for some reason determined to wear it right away. I really like this hedgehog print fabric, more so now it's a dress than I did when I bought it, which is sometimes how it goes.

I think the rest of the outfit all just kind of happened around the dress. I knew I'd need a mac as it was a little rainy, but not very cold. And the Irregular Choice shoes were a new-to-me purchase, which had just arrived,  and I didn't want to waste any time in wearing them, either.

The clutch bag was something I featured in a recent Friday Favourites post, and decided to order when I sold a few of the clothes I'd listed on my Instagram sale page. I love the 3D effect of it's flowers and sequins, but think it would be a much better design if it had a handle attached, as I'm worried that clutching onto it is going to dislodge some of the embellished detail.

Huge earrings, also new-to-me via a seller I found on Instagram, and a beret to hide the fact that my hair is always a mess, lately. It's all a bit mental, but I was told it was all very "me", which I'm just going to take as a compliment and move on.

  1. The bag is truly gorgeous, I'm sure with your sewing skills you could fashion a wrist strap for it? The beret is fab but there's no need to hide your hair - it's lovely. I'm of the 'messy hair, don't care' school of thought. Life's to short for perfect tresses.

    1. I'll have a think about adding a wrist strap - I guess it can't be too hard.

  5. The coat length is perfect for that dress and it all works so well together. Sometimes the 'thrown together' outfits are the best!

    1. Thanks, I wasn't sure but also didn't have much time to worry about it as I had too much to do!
