River of swan, cool your nerves..

Coat: Mis-Behave Vintage (?)
Swan Print Dress: Topshop
Clutch Bag: Choies*

Sandals: Irregular Choice

I'm not really a fan of these photos. I was feeling under the weather, my face was a mess, my hair was a mess, it had been a reeeeally long and stressful day, and just generally meh. But I like the dress and I love the coat, so here they are.

I don't know where the coat is from originally, or in fact how I came across it whilst searching for something else entirely, but I picked it up from eBay and the tags say Mis-behave Vintage, which I *think* might have been a Peacocks range at some point. The collar and cuffs and buttons are velvet and it's colour made me smile on a fairly dull and cold day last week. It reminds me a little of a coat I had as a kid.

The swan print dress is a Topshop one from 2012. I overlooked it at the time, but picked it up for a couple of pounds recently. It's quite short, as seems to be Topshop's way, but the print is cute and I figured it would be OK with these lower heeled sandals.

The sandals themselves remind me of that Christmassy book and cartoon, The Snowman - they make me think of one of the dancing snow ladies at the party. And the bag is still a favourite!


  1. You clutch is fabulous, as soon as i saw it Alice popped into my mind!

    1. Ooh, yes, I guess it is rather Alice!

    1. Thanks - it's a Pashley. I should let it out more often than I do lately, though!

  3. This is an ace outfit, you look really cute!

    1. It was such a random find but I love it.

  5. I'm sure there were Topshop wedges in swan print at the time too...they might have been black though. Gorgeous dress and that coat does remind me of a little kids one, it's lovely.

    1. Yep, I have those! I sort of can't wait to be able to wear them again at the end of the IC challenge!

  6. Beautiful, beautiful coat. Love it!
    And the dress is rather lovely too.
    You might of felt 'meh', but you looked fab! (those l-o-n-g legs!)

    1. Thank you, it reminds me of a coat I had when I was little, which I think is why I liek it so much!

  7. It's a great bag and I had a similar coat too :)
