I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned one or two…or more times that I’m quite a bit of an Anglophile. I’ve been obsessed since I was about 10 years old. Every Fall when the weather starts to change I naturally gravitate towards a bit of Brit inspired clothing. A When I got the new Boden catalog I totally feel in love with this fairisle sweater vest in a fun color way. Super cute under a shrunken tartan jacket too. B I don’t think I’m a very sexy dresser. No, I’m definitely not. My hubby would love if I wore more revealing stuff once in a while..especially on date nights. These heels are just the right amount of “sexy” in my book. Naughty secretary-ish. You feel me? C One of my ultimate fav movies is the classic Quadrophenia staring the ever hunky Sting. This jacket would have done him proud. Heck, he was probably wearing this exact label! D I DIE for Butter nail polish! It’s not the easiest polish to find, but boy you must try it NOW! The colors are phenomenal and they go on like silk. This color is British racing green..and my husband has a classic Jag that was passed down from his dad. We’re really, really into Jags here. E So classic, elegant, but not overly dressy. Something you would have forever. F This is just FUN! Sort of rock and roll English. And I love Vivienne Westwood. She IS rock and roll English style. G I’m pretty obsessed with hats and English school boy charm…so this hat is a duh for me. H Pumpkin colored velvet? Yes please! I’m all over orange velvet right now. In fact I’m trying to convince this stylish lady to recover two accent chairs in her living room in this fabric and add some beautiful nailhead trim.
Our holiday soiree is quickly approaching! And although I have a closet full of very lovely dresses that would be perfect for the occasion, I of course want a new outfit for the occasion. Since the party is French themed, I want to be as chic as a Parisian woman if possible. Here are some frocks I’ve had my eye on.
