Copper Fish


I recently found this cardigan which I remember my mum wearing a good 15+ years ago. Baggy 80's knitwear isn't really my thing, but I love the pinky coppery colours used and knew as soon as I saw it that I could make it work somehow. I paired it with a black lace skirt, a grey tank and belt, and gold accessories. I somehow managed to create the perfect copper nail colour by painting gold varnish over the top of the pewter colour shown in the previous post. It was a totally unexpected, happy accident.




Cardigan (vintage Rachel Grimmer), shoes (Chloe), skirt (vintage), vest (Topshop), belt (ebay)

Make-up: a dark red lip with 80's ish blusher to the upper cheek area. On the eyes, a tiny hint of gold glitter to the eye-lids, with liquid liner to the inner corners.

I have to admit that baggy 80s knitwear is DEFINITELY my thing, but this outfit looks marvelous on you in general. Not to mention, the Chloe shoes are to die for.

The colors of the cardigan give it a Rodarte vibe -- if only it were shredded to bits! You have FIERCE nails. I'm in awe.
