Spring Look Book – a clothing update.

Wardrobe wish list
Hi there!
I just want to start with a huge THANK YOU to all of you who left such wonderful and helpful comments on my last post.  It seems I am not alone in my desperate plea of finding affordable and on-rend clothes that suit women of a certain age, who still want to look cool, colourful, unique and stylish.  

Some of the suggestions were:

White Stuff
&Other Stories

We seem to all have very similar tastes.

I was contacted by Niki a personal stylist.  Niki kindly emailed me out of the blue with a look book which she pulled together on Polyvore using the wish list on my previous post.  She came up with the look book above.

Pretty good eh?  Isn’t she kind?

Niki offers her services as a personal stylist and is going to start a new feature on her blog – Hip Shapes and Bristol Fashion – where members of the public can email her their ‘wish list’ and she will pull together a look book for you, like she did for me.  Go do it!
I thought this looked like fun, so I had a go.  Polyvore, where have you been all my life!!!  
So what do you think?  To be honest there as so many different versions of this style out there that I could do a different one every single day.

  • Hey Lou, I’m so pleased you like it! I love you’re picks too…and Polyvore – it’s kinda addictive! The sales are on BIG time in Bristol at the mo, so it’s the perfect time to hit the shops. Good luck! xx

  • how fab, i had never heard of that site before, loving the green skirt and sequinned grey top in bottom image x

  • Very nice! Such gorgeous things, and I like the mood board. I have been seeking the “perfect” denim shirt that isn’t too denimy, if you know what I mean, for two months now. Still no luck. But I will have one if it kills me.

  • lovely list! so neat how Niki pulled those things together for you. I adore what you pulled together as well. I am dying for those sandals, chambray shirt, striped one as well, the sparkle tee -oh I guess I just love it all. xo

  • Totally agree with Helen – that green skirt is stunning! Lovely selection Lou! x

  • Love that green skirt – very Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. Can’t wait for the weather to warm up so the maxis and sandals can be worn again! I love polyvore too, can waste hours on there – it’s like the grown-up version of dress-up dollies!x
