It’s the colder season that’s making me reach for darker colour palettes and feelable fabrics. I want nothing more than to be snug and inconspicuous, wrapped up and a little bit mysterious. And so this week’s wants include a deep navy velvet playsuit I’ve been craving for a while, tassel earrings and a must-have knit. Among other things..
SHOP: 1. BOB By Dawn O’Porter The Charlie Shift Dress, £280 2. Whistles Mohair Knitted Hat, £45 3. GEMA Jewellery Italia Earrings, £14 4. Topshop Velvet and Lace Playsuit, £48 5. Topshop Shirt Jumper, £45 6. Falconwright at ASOS Pineapple Clutch, £55.
Followers of DWP and those who know me IRL will know that I’m a huge fan of Dawn O’Porter. I loved her documentaries way back when, I love her retro-inspired sense of style and I’m a big fan of her writing. So when she launched her own clothing brand, BOB By Dawn O’Porter I was one of the many frantically refreshing the homepage, anticipating what she’d be offering her vintage-obsessed followers. I wasn’t disappointed – I basically want everything. Top of my list is The Charlie. Figure-flattering, cool and perfect for any occasion, it’s well worth saving up for – and save I will!
A slightly more affordable, but potentially less versatile (but hey, that’s all part of the fun!), contender for Christmas party season is this sumptuous navy blue playsuit. Head over to the Topshop website to get a look at the beautiful lace back, which may well just make your next event a done deal.
And thinking of workwear or a sophisticated take on go-anywhere style I love love love this grey jumper-shirt combo from Topshop. Team with high-waisted jeans and a pair of pointy heels and you’re good to go, or make like me and team with a leather skater skirt, tights and pumps for a more comfortable but no-less office-appropriate look.
The finishing touches this week include the softest bobble hat from Whistles (worth the investment), a pair of bright blue tassel earrings from my very own jewellery shop and this cool monochrome pineapple print clutch.
