Vintage negligee, cardigan and shoes. Dyrberg Kern heart locket

When I was younger, I always used to peruse the intimates section of op-shops. I really liked the idea of wearing negligees as outwear, I mean often these pieces are so pretty, why leave them for the bedroom?Somewhere along the way, I stopped doing it, but when I saw Louis Vuitton's fall/winter 2013 runway, with its hotel hallway, sexy slips and sequinned trenches, I wanted to do my own interpretation of it. 

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2013

It doesn't happen often, but yesterday when I went op-shopping I found exactly what I was looking for, a red negligee with a lace lined split and a slouchy cardigan to match. I've styled it here like the runway, but for daily wear, I'd probably throw on some jeans.

I have this thing for looking like a couch. In fact, I have a couch with this kind of fabric so I guess I am channelling that. I also like to own the same kind of patten or fabric in multiple garments to the point where I could almost wear it head to toe. I refrained in this photo, but I do have a tapestry jacket, shorts and boots as well as this dress. I need to go to rehab.

Dries Van Noten

Stop right there fashion world. No need to make any more clothes. I'm satisfied with Dries Spring 2013. I don't need anything else, ever again.

It somehow combines absolutely everything I love to wear- plaid, metallics, metallic plaid, vintagy looking florals with plaids, sheer fabric, sheer fabric layered over other fabric, sheer plaid layered over florals, grandpa jerseys, androgynous shirts/pants, frilly tops (I could go on and on)- while still being cohesive.

I'm dead serious, I could quite happily live in these clothes forever and ever and ever.

And you cannot see it in these photos, but many of the backs of the clothes are completely different. In the words of Rachel Zoe, 'I die'.

The only way this could be improved? Doc Martens.

I feel like the Doc Martens are really getting the hang of prints now. I'm find it harder every year to say no. I think four pairs is enough.

Workshop Denim Overalls. Number One Shoe Warehouse Tap Shoes, Glassons Bag
Second hand dungarees , Boots from Jeans West, Supre Tshirt

I'm really digging overalls at the moment. Give you that really easy, throw together,. but kinda cool option in your wardrobe. Plus they remind me of being five years old, which is sort of enjoyable.

Paper Doll

I've had my eye on this necklace for a while. Me and my mum found it at this little boutique down high street but I couldn't afford it at the time and she bought it. It has two pieces, the women wearing her under garments and the dress that hangs over the top, just like a Victorian paper doll. I managed recently to convince my mum to swap it for another necklace of mine she's had her eye on. So happy! I love it.

Got some new boots today. Really like them. They've got that beigey tone that I can't help but keep buying in shoes, and the stretchy sides make them really comfy. Plus a really wide heel so they are really easy to walk in.

This jacket is another of the things that I am selling. It was one of the first pieces of clothing I ever sewed myself. I wanted a brocade jacket forever, especially in this minty green colour. I made it with a whole bunch of other clothes as a sort of collection. They were all very ethereal. It's really well made with stretchy jersey edges, sort of a bomber jacket, Letterman's style. I think I always sort of wanted it to be more like a denim jacket though, and the fabric is so soft and loose, it doesn't actually sit that well. Don't tell anybody on my auction though :p.

Also, sorry about the drab background and surly face. There was so much glare that I could barely open my eyes. I need to buy a new tripod or find a better place to take photos. At the moment, I am just propping my camera up against the window sill which isn't that effective.
