|Martha Book Dress & Squirrel Cardigan: Joanie Clothing|
Frankly, Joanie Clothing are fast becoming one of my favourite sites - the "new kids on the block", they've been gradually adding more and more pretties to their site and I check it on a regular basis. Although it's been a little frustrating to see some of the prices creeping up over the past week or so, it has to be said that they're still super affordable and the quality - as I mentioned with my Harper dress - is amazing.
I loved the book print on the Martha dress as soon as I saw it - book prints have been popping up everywhere of late (see my recent wishlist post for examples) but this is by far my favourite mix of colours and print. The dress is elasticated at the waist, but somehow still hangs nicely (I sometimes have issues with elasticated waists) and there's a side zip so that the buttons on the bodice can be just for show.
|Jacket: Violet Rose Vintage|
The squirrel cardigan was the other thing which stole my heart. It's a tan colour, which I can't say is something I have a lot of in my wardrobe, but it works well as a neutral and I love the squirrel detail and the stripes around the neck and the cuffs. This is quite a generous fit - I should have sized down, probably, as the sleeves are quite long on my arms. It's great, though.
|Boots: Irregular Choice // Bag: ASOS|
Some old boots and a new (to me) jacket. I was supposed to be returning something to the vintage shop (I wasn't able to) but ended up coming away with this as well. Oops. I couldn't resist it, though. I love the detail which goes into vintage tailoring. Extra hooks and hidden buttons to keep the jacket fitted nice and tightly; I think it will be perfect for evening trips to the theatre when the weather drops a little more. Apparently we're due some -14C temperatures, and I sort of can't wait.
