Outfit of The Day – Saggy Sequins

IMAG0523

  • Sequin Baseball Dress – Native Rose (bought at Urban Outfitters)
  • Ripped Boyfriend Jeans – Urban Outfitters
  • DR. Martens (VERY old)

I’m completely in love with my jazzy sequin baseball dress; but it’s one of those items that’s so jazzy that once you’ve worn it on a few nights out you feel like you have to keep it under wraps for a while.. because its so memorable.  I wanted to try it out as a dressed-down daytime outfit so I can get more use out of it.  I think it looks well paired with these super baggy boyfriend jeans, and the length of the dress hides the fact that the jeans keep falling down round my arse!

My trusty Dr. Marten boots are so old, I don’t even want to think about it..  it makes me feel like a withering old lady.

(9 years old if you must know….UGH).

Aside from the fact that I feel like I’m getting eve- closer to middle age, my DM’s have served me SO well; they’ve been through many a festival and general hideous Belfast weather and they’re still going.  Not a hole in sight.  They have a lot of scuffs on the top but I think that adds to the look of them – and they’re soft as butter as I’ve worn them so much.

You can check out the boots Dr. Marten’s has to offer here.  I’m loving these:

Stella McCartney Look-a-likey!

Every season the amazing clothes that big designers produce is used as inspiration for high street brands.  I’ve been doing a bit of hoking around and found some look-a-likes.

Stella McCartney 

By far one of the hottest collections for Spring/Summer 2011 (take a look at my previous post Tutti-Frutti prints, https://belfash.wordpress.com/2011/04/20/tutti-frutti-prints-for-summertime/ for more inspiration!). I loooove these citrus prints, so fresh and summery.

I like the print on this NEW LOOK dress, however I think the shape is a bit uninspiring (a prom dress, really?).  With so many amazing new shapes on the catwalk I think NEW LOOK have been lazy with this design.

I think PRIMARK have done a far superior job in their lemon-print dress.  The print is gorgeous and I love the way the top half of the dress is woven diagonally.  At £9.00 you have no excuse for not buying it!

The print on this ZARA blouse, £29.99 is a bit too much leaves and butterflies and not enough fruit for my liking.  However I’m glad someone had designed something other than a dress from McCartneys inspiration.

On my hunt I also found these two cuties!  Orange Resin Ring, £8.00 and Large Citrus Pendant, £20.00 from http://www.jijikiki.com.

Hope you liked this! I’m going to try to do a BELFASH LOOK soon,  I can’t at the minute though as I’m all sick with a tummy bug :(.  But I’m sure I’ll be better soon.  Any suggestions just comment on my facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002252247478.
