Bottle Green… – Yours Truly

So autumn is well upon us and I have yet to find my winter coat! How frustrating! I have however found a new fixation on the colour green, particularly bottle green. You may recall the fabulous hat I picked up a few months ago in a Brick Lane boutique (Absolute Vintage) for my birthday. Well it has found new company in a peter-pan collar dress from Topshop and crochet socks from H&M.

I love the richness of this colour! Perfect to contrast the rusts and golds of the fading autumn leaves. And a great contrast to my currently red hair!
To lift the darkness of the green, I paired the pieces with a vintage cream tennis skirt, and pale taupe vintage cardigan.
The shoes are from Topshop, and are surprisingly comfortable! I feel I should also mention that today I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time, and I’m actually quite happy with the results! I’m such a wimp with hair removal, and my eyes freely flowed during the five minutes the beautician worked her magic…how embarrassing! But I love the classic 1950’s arc she has managed to sculpt into my normally misbehaving eyebrows!

You may have also noticed the brooch. It’s a bit unusual, and belonged to my Nanna. My Mum recalls being scared of it as a child, and I don’t think she’s particularly keen on it even now! Perhaps it’s the real feathers? I think it’s adorable and wish I had another two so I could create ‘flying ducks’ on my cardigans! More very soon, as I’m planning a little trip to the vintage Lanes of Brighton and another pilgrimage to Brick Lane! Hope you’re all very well, Ps. Bidding ends on eBay items tonight HERE. If you miss out don’t worry, I’ll be listing another huge lot in a few days time!
