I add a bit of summer sparkle to my outfits......
This is a sponsored post, but you know me well enough by now to know that I wouldn't be wearing these gorgeous shoes from Moshulu if I didn't truly love them. And it's not just about the shoes..... there's a heap of top tips on how to style up old and new summer clothes to get the most out of your wardrobe by mixing and matching. Hope you like.
The sandals also add a nice pop of colour to a monochrome outfit:
The vintage kimono was imported from Japan, so not my normal bargain costing about £60, but just look at that fabric and pattern. What a find! The linen pants were bought in Melbourne an age ago, from Havana Blue in Melbourne, the necklace is made from vintage pieces by Ghost & Lola in Byron Bay and the headscarf is a vintage piece of material! I think the sandals work really well considering I am mixing authentic vintage with modern, don't you?
My 80s looking sweater was found in River Island years ago and is so cosy teamed up with my 50s style jeans, a vintage headscarf & sunnies, while the glittery footwear adds even more of a retro vibe!
I also love my Marrakech Disco sneakers with, unlike me, a brand new bomber jacket from Library L.A. in Los Feliz, L.A. and brand new jeans, 'cause they were 50% off from Gap! (For some reason, Gap jeans are the only ones that fit me like they were made for me, so if you hate low rise jeans & are short, have a thick waist and a bit of a tum, but slim elsewhere, try Gap jeans, it will save you hours of frustration!)
This time, I managed to tie my headscarf in true 40s style and with some cheap retro sunnies, from L.A, am just loving this look - in Portsmouth!
I am also thrilled that the blue in the shoes actually goes with one of my retro summer frocks proving that sneakers don't need to be kept just for jeans. Big thanks to Mo for lending me Pepper, the adorable four-legged model! The dress is an oldie by Lazy Bones, in Australia, and the sunnies were, again, a fiver from Vintage Brighton an age ago!
Hope you enjoyed my mixing and matching tips and do let me know if you get into a bit of sparkle this summer! See you soon,
