I'm finally into Autumn/Fall!

I didn't mean to buy any winter clothes as I'm only here till the middle of December before going back to Australia. However, I popped into a few Brighton high street shops to see if they had any interesting tops for the Vivienne Westwood skirt I bought for my birthday this time last year. I have only worn it a couple of times so really want to get maximum wear out of it this year.

 I couldn't find anything till the lovely girl in Jigsaw found me this bottle green faux fur collar. There was no way I was leaving the shop without it as it will dress up most of my winter wardrobe, I tell myself!

New & old - the faux fur collar completes the green/blue vibe of my outfit.

I am also enjoying wearing my Doc Marten shoes, at long last.  I bought them in the summer but never got to wear them till now. I can't find them on-line now, probably because they were a summer look, called Pascal.  Love coloured tights that pull the whole look together and with a pre-loved bangle, my trade mark headscarf and vintage sunnies, I'm good to go. 

So, last year's one winter purchase of a gorgeous skirt, an extremely old cashmere sweater (literally decades old!) fairly new Doc Martens & an even newer faux fur collar. Job done for Autumn 2016!

Oh yes, and I have finally found a red lipstick that really suits me. It's called Ruby Woo, by Mac, it's matt and looks very 50's vintage.  Love it.  Hope you like.
