Outfits of The Week?

1 February 2010

In order to make this blog a bit more 'regular' with some kind of weekly planned feature, I have decided to create 'Outfits of the week' or OOTW for short.  Basically I will try and take an outfit photo every day, regardless of what state of tiredness I'm currently in and narrow it down to showcase my favourite looks of the week.  Narcissistic much? Hopefully this will help to understand a bit more about my style and how I wear all the clothes I'm constantly buying (especially during these freezing temperatures).  It'll also help me see how my style is evolving; isn't it weird when you look at older pictures of yourself and wonder 'What was I thinking?'  Now I have this blog to understand why.



Cardigan, leggings, skirt - Topshop
Mesh tee - American Apparel 
(with a really old vest worn underneath to prevent flashing)
Belt - Vintage via the Angels Sale 
(Londoners please visit this for me)
Boots - Steve Madden
Jewellery - Mainly Freedom and Marc Jacobs


Cardigan - Mbym via Joy
Lace top - New Look
Vest, Jeans - Topshop
Boots - Steve Madden
Jewellery - as before


Saturday (day)
My Mum finally sent my new glasses, my attempt at geek chic.  I'm very short-sighted.

Denim shirt, knitted tank top - Topshop
Thermal long sleeve - Uniqlo
Striped Top - Zara
Necklace - Pema boutique in Brooklyn
Leggings - Charity shop
Socks - New Look
Boots - Steve Madden

Saturday (night)
Worn to the Coyote Ugly bar, haven't actually seen the film; better add it to the list.
Yellow Jacket - Beacons Closet
(yes I went back, will explain all in the next post)
Leotard - Asos
Belt - Vintage
Skirt - H&M
Tights - House of Holland
Boots - Jeffrey Campbell
Jewellery - That much loved Freedom and Marc Jacobs combo

Conclusion: I wear the same boots and jewellery all the time.  Funny that, though it makes the cost per wear almost non-existent.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

P.S Finally finished tweaking the blog layout; I suggest this one as a good place to start if you're thinking of a change.  It's all just trial and error basically. 



  1. I love that yellow beacons closet yellow jacket thing, kind of looks like a shirt from here.

    Also...I feel the same way about the regular things I wear, a pound per wear etc etc!

  2. This is SUCH a great idea for a post! Can't wait to see what OOTWs you come up with in the future :)

    I especially like Thursdays outfit - that jacket is simply AMAZING! & I have the same New Look lace top in black... great minds think alike!

    Also, J'ADORE the Saturday day outfit! Perfecttt layering and gorgeous boots.

    Wish you were in London and could've come to the Aussie party I organised :( was so much fun but not quite the same without you there!

  3. good idea for a weekly outfit round-up! especially like saturdays outfits...the bright yellow looks great on you :)

    love the new layout!


  4. your reasoning for outfit photos is much the same as mine,
    it's fun to see how my style has changed since I started blogging!

  5. ootw love it! that yellow jacket in the last photo is brilliant!

  6. Great idea! But I, myself, wouldbe too embarassed to do it - i would run out of clothing!

  7. Great I love outfit posts. Love the Sat night outfit and the first one especially.

  8. Hey lovely,

    Just wanted to let you know there's an award waiting for you on my blog!

    Your award is here!

    Also, I love Thursday's look, that cardigan is gorgeous

  9. love the leggings you wore on tuesday and btw this is such a good idea but since im still in school i think it could get a bit boring for me! also love the steve madden boots. if your gonna wear boots all the time it really is worth buying gorgeous boots like that. i spend so much on boots because i always wear them anyway love the new layout and keep well x

  10. My favourite? Tuesday. Great combination. I always wear the same boots, too (black ankle boots from topshop). They're starting to fall apart.

  11. I so need to be organised like you and schedule a regular posting plan. I can be so lazy sometimessss.

    No lie, all your outfits are awesome. The floral tights, the drapy cardigan, the shirt and the yellow cardi... all fabulous and you look hawt yo!
