The jacket and boots are trusty favourites and the dress was a bargain from boohoo at about £15 with 15% off on top of that. My bag is my new baby, pride of joy and treasured item. Bit OTT? I really do like this bag and had a splurge on payday and treated myself to it because I felt ill. That's a good enough excuse right?
Bag: Vivienne Westwood
I write about my love of Vivienne Westwood on here pretty frequently and have been able to build up a little collection by saving and being spoiled and getting them as gifts. I've always loved Vivienne Westwood, the person and the brand. All the different reincarnations appeal to me from the 430 Kings Road/Punk era, the pirate/Romantic look of the 80s, her use of British wool and the emphasis of the hourglass figure in her Anglomania collections.
I always love the Autumn/Winter collections from Vivienne Westwood which use black, patent and berry tones with some tartan thrown in for good measure too. I think her bags add a very British/punk edge to an outfit which I don't think you can get from any other designer. Here are some of my favourites from the latest collection:
The black bow shoulder bag is definitely being added to my wishlist.
Are you a fan of British punk style or is Parisian chic or Italian glamour and excess more your thing?
