Sweatshirt + Sequins

Plus a scarf I found….

Coat & skirt: Zara sale (Similar coat grey/black). Sweatshirt: H&M Men. Shoes: Forever21. Fedora: ASOS << on sale in both colours. Scarf: Banana Republic (similars here and here). Bag: JCrew. Shown with flares here.   

You lot don’t know this but I almost live in this poxy mens sweatshirt. Remember it here with the creepers?  Wore it with a sequin mini on sale this time. Some of the sequins are falling off showing the netting underneath which I actually prefer.

I did a massive scarf throw out two weeks ago which ‘revealed’ this where-the-f**k-did-I-put-that-fur-pull-through scarf.  It was ‘lost’ for 2 winters, buried in a scarf graveyard. Sound familiar to you? if so then trust me: a good purge on them feels 10 x better and you don’t miss what you chucked!  Found this one (the leopard version is on sale) or this one if you fancy one for over jackets or thin knits.

ps. Surplus pics on Facebook.

    Nicely paired! There’s something sort of rebellious (feeling that is…) about shopping and wearing men’s clothes esp when noone would know the difference otherwise.

    Oh I LOVE that skirt, I saw it at Zara the other day and I was contemplating on buying it but I thought it would look to dressed up. Thanks to you my eyes are opened to a whole new way f wearing it : simply with a slouchy jumper! It looks great 🙂
