One of my blogging resolutions for 2014 was to create more proper, thought-out Outfit posts. It’s something that I really love to do, and as my blog is about fashion as well as beauty/lifestyle, I knew I needed to make more of an effort on that front.
This outfit features pieces from two of my favourite designers of all time – Vivienne Westwood and Jeffrey Campbell. The jumper dress is the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Jeans Sweatshirt Dress and the shoes are the Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk Spikes.
I was very kindly given the jumper this Christmas as a gift from my boyfriend Tiz – he knows how much I love Vivienne Westwood, and went totally over the budget we’d agreed! He’s a cheeky one but I love him for it. I’d had my eye on this piece for ages, and believe it or not it is my first piece of proper Vivienne Westwood clothing! I adore her accessories but now that I’ve branched out into clothes who knows where it will end…
As for the shoes, I bought these a little while ago from the Office website, on sale for half price! They were £70 rather than £140 and I adore them. To be honest, they are pretty difficult to walk in – not because of the height, but because the side digs in to my ankle quite a bit. Nevertheless, I will persevere and enable them to live the fabulous life they were destined for!
I love the luxurious feel of both items in this look – they were both absolutely worth their money. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not ‘designer or nothing’. In fact, most of my clothes are from places like H&M, Topshop and Boohoo! But I would relish wearing an outfit like this for a fancy meal or even just cocktails with friends. I don’t think that saving your best clothes for limited occasions is the way forward – enjoy them!
As always, I’d love to know your thoughts on my outfit! Please leave me a comment below. Also, I will have many more outfit and fashion posts coming soon, hopefully with photos taken around various locations in Manchester! Keep your eyes peeled…
