Hey peeps! Hope you’re all very well? Okay, before I talk about today’s outfit I must point out that Carmakoma (who the skirt is by, I bought it a couple of years ago) have…
Like seriously, you have until May 1st to grab what you can! The thing with Carmakoma is because they are a designer and independent, their prices are higher than our fave retail places. Their clothes are so good and such great quality though that it’s like an investment. This skirt for example I bought and I intend to pass down to my grandkids!
Really, though, the star of this outfit is the vest, which was sent to my by the team at One Stop Plus. I didn’t realise but I got the biggest size (20/22) however it’s pretty stretchy so I think someone a bit bigger than me could work it, too. The material is so soft you forget you’re wearing it! I just love the mermaid green colour (it also comes in brown). The only wee issues are the sequins can get a little scratchy if you’re not wearing a cardigan, and as with all sequin embellished clothes you shed a tiny trail of glitter wherever you go. But I kinda like that.
Here’s me trying to be a cool hairy feminist although it doesn’t quite suit me, does it? Also, my armpit hair is so fine you can’t even see it! Oh well.
For reference, here’s me wearing the vest in a more daytime friendly way, with a different skirt and cardigan:
Thanks, OSP! What do you think?
