Whenever I try to inject some colour into my lust lists, I usually fail. Colour isn't my forte. Saying that, I do like a bit of red. Such as in this red duffle coat (£17, was £35) from Peacocks. Initially I aimed for a preppy look but it didn't quite turn out that way.
Firstly I took the orange checked shirt (£6, was £12) and tucked it into a pair of black sateen shorts (£7, was £14), which has a removable belt. For a dignified look I took some black 15 dernier tights (£2.50 for a pack of 5), a pair of cream chain detail ballet shoes (£7.50, was £15), a gold headband (£1.75, was £3.50) and a beautiful dogtooth fabric bag (£5, was £10)... just don't hold it next to the shirt! Now, I thought this outfit would look awesome with a delightfully tacky gold chunky chain necklace (£3, was £6) and equally tacky gold mesh diamante earrings (£3, was £6) but
PS; check out this swing coat (£11) for its beautiful brooch and this adorable heart glitter box bag (£6) which I've been lemming over.
