You’ve probably already figured this out…but I’m not very rock n’ roll. I have wonky holes in my ears after chickening out mid-piercing and moving my head. My favourite rock n’ roll song is by Gary Glitter (‘Rock and Roll, part 2’ was the surprise dance floor hit at our wedding) and there is nothing I like more than a cup of herbal tea in my pyjamas on a Friday night, frankly.
Naturally, this style of dressing doesn’t come easy to me, either. But after seeing the Chloe A/W show and its basic mantra of ‘throw a scarf on it’, I decided to give it a go. And I’m sorry to admit I wasn’t even cool enough to iron out the creases of my brand new skinny scarf to achieve said look. That’s just the kind of girl I am…
Now I bought this blazer over 8 years ago from All Saints, back when I used to work at Eve Magazine (I remember because the Shopping Editor at the time had the same one). I think it’s the only thing I own from there – but it is excellent quality and stood the test of time. When sometimes people say my blog is about throwaway fashion, I like to point out the longevity of most of my wardrobe. The jeans too are a classic style – the ‘True Skinny’
from Gap – they just get better with age.
And for the finishing touch? I’ve been wearing this Tada & Toy earcuff
to add a rocky edge to the simplest of outfits (excuse the dodgy half selfie – another skill I have yet to develop!). It’s £38 and you don’t need to have your ears pierced – true rockers need not apply….
