New Year, New Wardrobe?

It’s the time of year where we’re not only thinking about starting a new health and fitness regime, we’re thinking about updating our look.

With the demise of Catherine Kallon’s Red Carpet Fashion Awards website, the search is on for a new fashion guru.  But have you thought about being your own fashion expert?

On a recent trip to Harrods, I came across a rather lovely looking skirt from the current Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection.

The retail price is £270.  At that point I stopped liking it so much.  But what ho!, I have a similar skirt hanging in my wardrobe.

I purchased this skirt during the Jaeger Boutique sale about a year ago, for about £30. I unpicked the hem, added black bias binding to add detail and for extra length, and voila!

Teamed with a black, long sleeved top and vintage frock coat, this will form part of my ‘new look’. Fashion maths, that’s a saving of £240. The champagne lifestyle on a budget continues in 2016!
