Old Paisley Suit

28 October 2014





Blazer: Lavish Alice; Trousers: Lavish Alice; Blouse: Forever 21;
Bag: Wicker Wings*; Shoes: ASOS; Sunglasses: Oasap;

It's always interesting to browse through your wardrobe to see what items you've forgotten about (even if it's for the best). I've found this paisley suit I had purchased last year from Lavish Alice. And oh yeah, it's a co-ord, a very big trend this year.

I did wonder why I've rarely worn this but then remembered, it's the padded shoulders in the blazer. I have broad shoulders myself and anything padded emphasises it even more. I may try and remove them carefully then it'll be perfect. This is where GCSE Textiles comes in handy I hope. Without tucking the shirt in, it looks less formal

I think I've fallen back in love with paisley print. Monochrome paisley print please.

Ooo it's Halloween this Friday! I'm quite excited as to what I'm dressing up as but will see how many times I wash my face if I make a mistake as I am a perfectionist. If there is spare time, I could put together a quick blog post before I head out.

  8. Paisley is not for everyone because it is exotic and retro. However you do carry it off very well.

  15. The padding makes you look a little older than you should! Though the prints are beautiful! You have good body proportion which carries off everything well, unlike me! :(
