Do I dare?


So I am techniqually cheating here. I didn't wear this outfit out. I adore my vintage blouse and I am in love with this Topshop bow but I just don't have the guts. I think I need to pair it with something simple to start with, not a bold vintage blouse. I need to step my guts up a noch. I am a big bow/collar person and when the Topshop free delivery thingybob came up I bought it(it was £10). That's what I got it for really, to make something simple a bit more fashion-ey? But on lover tops i.e vest tops I think I look a touch like a naked butler, which is never good for a 17 year old girl, we don't want to give off the wrong impression.

Do you have any accesories that turn a simple outfit into a edgy one? I'd love to invest in more.

Have a great day!

  1. Your "outfit" is so cute! I love it! I feel exactly the same, I have no guts when it comes to wearing adventurous outfits outdoors but when it comes to pasting them over my blog on the world wide internet? Sure haha! Maybe if I had a top like yours I would wear it out, it's really lovely xx

  3. I have a bow from ASOS though it's much smaller - I wear it with plain jumpers & collars but on the outside, so it's the focal point, I like to think it works well!x

  15. It looks fab!! maybe start wearing it for random shopping trips, build your confidence up a bit to wear something a bit more out there, then wear with a plain shirt.. or a plain white tee??

    Mine is my silky leopard print scarf from River,i just love leopard print and if im having a cba day i know i can wear it with something plain to jazz the outfit up!

  19. Hello sweet,

    I can't thank-you enough for your wonderful words your wrote about my writing, it's made my day. I'm sorry this little comment is rather late, but I'd really love to give you the offer of me sending you a little something for your loveliness you've shown me. It's hard to find people on Blogger a lot of the time that firstly, can be bothered to comment, and secondly can be bothered to read your post, so I really can't thank-you enough for reading. Unfortunately I can't find your email so I had to comment here, so please email me at lilyfmason@live.co.uk, thank-you! P.s your top looks like a dream!

    Lots of Love,

    Lily xx
