Look Of The Day: Print Power! X
Dear Elgin Avenue readers,
A very Happy Wednesday evening to you all!
So here I am tip-tapping away after a super day visiting Marie Claire HQ! After being over the moon to have won the very first Marie Claire Fashion Blog of the Year Award (read the write up here!) the fact that I am actually going to be working alongside the Marie Claire team is still boggling my mind!
As such I was so excited today to head along to the MC offices to meet with online editor Helen Russell and chit chat future blogging! Fashion editors tend to look pretty darn amazing (naturally!) and Helen definitely looked the part in a nude lace dress with a gorgeous pastel scarf, and herein lies the conundrum when dressing to meet a fashion ed - the pressure is definitely on! Fortunately I made a pretty snappy decision to don print on print with tan accessories and a Christy's trilby which worked well with the gorgeous sunshine we were oh-so-lucky to enjoy today!
The finishing touch? A copy of April's Marie Claire of course ; )!!
White/Black Jacket: H&M (Old), Multi Coloured Blouse: Vintage, Necklace: Anthropologie, Tan Bag: Vintage, Belt: Mulberry, Jeans: Leigh Topshop, Snakeskin Print Shoes: Bought In Menorca, Trilby: Christys', Watch: Swatch, Jewellery: All Picked Up On Travels
As is the case with a fair few of my outfits I found myself reaching for my Christy' trilby as a finishing touch (see here and here for two other Christys' ensembles!) and as such I am so excited tomorrow to head along to Chritys' London office to have a peruse through their extensive collection!
For now I am off to a little soiree for oh-so-cool tights brand Emilio Cavallini!! Ahh must rush - why am I always late?! Eeee!
Have a super evening all!
One Of My Fave Christys' Numbers!
