The Grey Gatsby

I went to see The Great Gatsby a few weeks ago and naturally wanted to dress up in the spirit of the film. Not wanting to look too costumey or over-dressed at the cinema, I reined it in a bit with a simple outfit jazzed up with some key accessories (yes, this is me reining it in...I was tempted to wear an ostrich feather boa. I didn't even add a brooch to my turban!).Silk harem trousers, obligatory turban, spectator shoes and an antique beaded sash worn as a necklace/scarf completed the look.

The beaded sash is a favourite piece of mine, sitting somewhere between clothing and jewellery. The craftsmanship involved from the intricate pattern down to the end tassels is superb. I hardly ever wear it due to my paranoia over catching it on something and watching as millions of beads scatter all around me.

Festooned in Feathers

Just a super casual Sunday outfit.... leggings, cardigan and a vest, topped off with a confection of feathers. The shoes are a lovely burgundy velvet with a patent leather toe cap, to which I added some shoe clips. Really enjoying a good block heel at the moment too.
