If It's Worth Doing......

It's worth overdoing........... in the words of the divine Helga Von Trollop and the gorgeous Keith Richards.


What's good enough for those two style icons is good enough for me. Tonight's outfit for popping down the Black Country Arms for a pint (or three) of guest ale and a cheeky mid-week vegetable Jalfrezi involves polka dots, posies, psychedelia, roses, tribal, vintage, designer, high street, stripes and why the heck not?


Does it match? Does it matter? Nah! I love everything I'm wearing and that's good enough for me.


Details: Van Allen maxi dress (one of a pair from eBay), Vintage Liberty silk scarf (local vintage shop), Platform clogs (high street boutique), Oversized 1950's floral bag (Car boot sale), Silver bangles (India and inherited), Rings (India), Tribal hoops (India)


See you tomorrow!

  2. Strangely with all the mix of patterns/fabrics it doesn't actualy look like it doesn't go. You look fabulous as always. Wish I looked so good when I pop out for some cider! x

  3. Great prints. But really it's the way YOU wear them.
    The rest of us are so dull on the whole. Very depressing trolling round Tesco amongst the dreary T-shirts and so on. I'm an offender myself, I admit. I simply must do better but I don't have your natural advantages unfortunately. ;o(

  4. I love the lines " I love everything I'm wearing and that's good enough for me." At the end, thats the only thing that matters:-)

  11. I love it when outfits don't match! There is nothing I enjoy more than mixing different prints or fabrics. A floral blazer with a striped dress...or a shredded denim jacket with a lacy dress. That's what fashion is all about! Your outfit is just proof. You look AMAZING! xoxo

  14. I love the dress soooo much. I always always wear jeans to the pub, even if I've been in a skirt/ dress earlier. Why? I should follow your lead and reform at once, it is much prettier and more fun

  15. Dear Vix,
    I love that dress, it's just so awesomely fabulous!
    The moment I clocked the name 'Van Allen' I was on eBay quicker than a rat out of an aqueduct to see if there were any frocks up for grabs at the mo but alas there were none, buhu :(
    The colours are lush & the print is just divinely quirk-tastic…you’ve teamed this dress with the perfect footwear too.
    Hope you have a fab time doon ye olde watering hole ;)
    …xXx

  16. Oh, you look amazing as always. I'm so envious of your lifestyle - midweek popping down the local with a group of mates, sounds bliss. I'm on a low tonight. But then I've spent 2 hours on the phone to India trying to get the reworked laptop connected to t'Internet. Have had a couple of glasses of red to try to unwind but it doesn't seem to have helped. Going to try coffee and Giant Chocolate Buttons. xx
