Weekly Wardrobe – A pop of colour

This week’s theme at NotDressedAsLamb for #IwillWearWhatILike was a little easier for me to follow, as I do have a few items of brightly coloured clothing, thoughNot Dressed As Lamb when it came to looking at my wardrobe(s), not as many as I thought. Last week was pretty uneventful for me, as I’ve still been sewing away at the Bottle Bags and Cup Carriers for Glastonbury Festival – it was quite a relief when I handed them all in a couple of days ago. So the clothing I’ve included in this post is not for any particular occasion….

Walking Loki in the field wearing a dress I bought at Glastonbury Festival. The purpley leggings were from Tesco and the purple hoody was from QS. My green wellies I bought at Truro market about twelve years ago, finally gave up the ghost, so last week I bought these simple black Dunlop ones, which so far, have been fine. Everyone knows Dunlops are way cooler than Hunters now anyway 😉

This cardigan from Joe Browns is my favourite one ever, and I really wish they’d do the design again as I now have holes in this one. I always get compliments on how flattering it is – although as it’s not done up in these photos, that’s difficult to see. The beige linen mix trousers are from New Look and the fuchsia pink vest top, also from New Look certainly provides a pop of colour. I’ll have to be careful when wearing that top – sometimes it’s only when you see photos you realise how booby something is!
Here’s something similar:

The shell necklace was bought as a bundle on ebay when I was doing a mermaid photo-shoot for Oshun.
The stripy shoes are BlowFish and were bought at a TK Maxx. I didn’t have any stripy clothes for last week’s #IWillWearWhatILike link-up theme, but now I’ve realised I could at least have photographed these shoes!

Styling a red top

Styling a red top

My pop of colour for this outfit clearly comes from the red cross-over cardigan style top, which I bought recently from Lindybop. Underneath is a simple black vest top from New Look and the skirt is from Bohemia at Glastonbury Festival. (I think I’ve mentioned before how most of my clothes come from there!)
The red strappy shoes were from Jones and must be very old as I distinctly remember pushing one of the kids in a pushchair when I bought them in London. So for approximately twenty years old, they’ve lasted well, although the coating is just starting to chip off, which is a shame. I must look into whether there’s anything I can do to help prevent that happening more.

Next week the Weekly Wardrobe pictures will be taken at Glastonbury Festival, so the background will be colourful even if I won’t be!
If you wear bright colours, which is your favourite? Mine is definitely red.

Game of Thrones costume ideas
October 7, 2016
Winter is coming and that means halloween is creeping up on us, so I thought I’d start you off with ideas for costumes from the famous HBO series, Game of Thrones. I’ll be honest, I didn’t get into it straight away – I think we gave up on it after a few episodes because I thought it was too violent and gratuitous and already characters I liked got killed. Then I knew I was going to meet Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) as she was going to judge the competition where we made items of clothing from old books. So I had to watch it, just in case it came up in conversation! So we ploughed through, and it wasn’t until the third series when I actually started enjoying it. Then I really got into it! Here are some ideas from Etsy….
Why I’ve decided to turn down work
September 7, 2016
This post is about my Oshun clothing business that you might have heard me mention one or two times, or have spotted the links on the right hand side there! I thought it might give food for thought or be useful for anyone else running a handmade craft business. I have recently turned down the opportunity to make a whole family different Clash of Clans costumes, and have since had two more requests for the Witch character’s costume for Halloween. This is why I said no….
Weekly Wardrobe – Christmas Concert
December 12, 2016
This week I was part of our Village Voices Christmas Concert – the event of the year for our community choir! Our dress code was black bottoms and a brightly coloured top. The black bottom half was easy – I had several options, but not so many bright tops to choose from in my wardrobe; particularly smart ones. Then I remembered a jacket I have that just screams Christmas; so I went with that! I didn’t leave myself enough time to be photographed on the actual evening of the concert, so I re-created the look yesterday by the Bishop’s Palace in Wells.
