Blood Orange

Excuse the wintry outfits, but I came across two sets of photos which were never posted and thought they deserved an airing. I wonder whether anyone else goes through 'phases' of loving certain colour combinations as I do? I remember a green/blue/purple phase, a coral/green phase which developed into a coral/royal blue phase...and in recent months, a burgundy/orange phase. It's been difficult finding the exact shade of coppery orange I adore, but that hasn't stopped me trying.

Outfit one - Vintage hat, scarf and belt, blouse (M&S), cardigan (Topshop), trousers (H&M), shoes (Office).

Stupidly wonderful shoes which were love at first sight... velvet; burgundy; fringed; lace-up; and with tassels. A combination of all things I love. Like theatre curtains for your feet.

Outfit two - vintage coat and dress, waistcoat (New Look), boots (Blay), self-made bag.

This dress features a marbled pattern on layers of tulle, with a vibrant orange lining. Two caped sections flutter from the shoulder to create the sleeves. The top 'cape' can be tucked into the neckline to create a scarf/cowl-neck (below). The dress is pretty versatile, if a little shapeless; I considered the usual route of belting it, instead opting for a black waistcoat, which contrasted nicely under the cape layers.

Burgundy and orange

I too go through phases of colour combinations - dusky lilic & burgundy and bottle green & dusky pink, for example.

Loving the outfit/colour combo, the velvet shoes and feather hat are extraordinary: so quirky and decadent!

Chanel may be known for its timeless designs, but with the introduction of the Chanel 2.55 Chanel brings us a line that is both seductive and a slight change of pace. Unmistakably different, Chanel classic strays from the quilted flapChanel Evening Bags we have come to expect from the brand.
