Today's outfit is showing off my new Asos Curve purchase- a polka dot peplum top. It's a thick cotton fabric, hugs my top nicely. The polka dots are a little strange- they seem painted on and are a bit rough to the touch. I would prefer if they were printed on or flocked. This is my first venture into the peplum trend- I like the shape it creates. I'm looking for a pencil skirt to try out with it.
The weather was cool enough to need a cardigan but I didn't want spoil the line of the top. So thanks to Lilli from Frocks and Frou Frou who shared her tip with me- button the cardigan together at the back. It holds the cardigan on, but bares the line of the top. Great idea Lilli. All I did was button the last button together.
I'm wearing my stripey socks from Sock Dreams. These extraordinary long thigh highs do go over my knee but they don't stay there! To try and combat the rolling down effect I trialed some sock garters.
Unfortunately while they slow the rolling down process they don't stop it, and are pretty uncomfortable to wear. Next I'm going to try a garter belt and see if that helps.
One of my favourite necklaces is this unicorn one- from my local shop Catfight Collections. They have an online shop so go have a look if you're into pin-up/ rockabilly stuff. They have loads of cute hair bows and shoes too.
Once again my Etsy TARDIS earrings make an appearance.
