Brink of Insanity

Today, as I edged closer and closer to the brink of insanity, I decided to try deciding what to wear for my critical debut on Tuesday.

I found myself desperately unable to make any of my posh dresses look vaguely suitable. I ended up layering a Burberry silk dress over my £1 Primark top and brown tights (bought my mistake) from Marks & Spencers, which I'd worn to the library. On top of that I added my favourite summer dress from Uniqlo, worn so endlessly that it is beginning to resemble a shapeless and bobbly monster. Then I slipped on my least exciting shoes.

Then I swept all the clutter off my door, rearranged my mirror to create a blank canvas and took 10000 photographs. All signs that I'm not quite sane, but whatever. I was pretty pleased with how tall I looked in the results, so I thought I'd post it on the internet for all to see. In my mind, it looks sort of nice, in a Marni-eqsue sort of way. Like: look how effortlessly I mix textures and lengths and labels and prices to create this fantastic ensemble.


  1. You're totally right. The outfit works but I'd NEVER have thought of mixing it all together!

  2. I think it's really great, and I admire your adventurous nature.

  3. Wow - you really like it? I wasn't sure about it at all, and I doubt I'd be adventurous enough to wear it out, enc. In fact, I know I wouldn't.

    But I'm happy you liked it :)

    OH, and I'm feeling a little more sane now after seeing some pretty fireworks.

  4. i love this, too! indeed very marni-esque with the color blocks, layering and muted palette. hope to see you continuing to post more outfits, you always look great and your style is very much your own which i admire a lot.
    oh and i tagged you btw! no pressure, no rush ;)

  5. Hey, mettch!

    I thought you might like it actually, your style itself is very marni-esque. Did I tell you I used to love reading your stylediary?
