What I am wearing / Day to Night

11.12.09

Well well well, this is another of my "I meant to write this for ages but didn't have the time" posts. I have just emptied my camera and finally uploaded these pictures that were meant to show you how I build my outfits, since I got a few emails and even an interview question recently asking me about that.
For this particular experiment, I started from a very simple base: high-waisted skirt + black tee-shirt combo. The idea is to take this outfit from day wear to evening wear, bearing in mind I don't dress up loads when I go out, so if you tend to dress up a lot, this won't really be much help!

This is a very basic outfit, as you can see, with a focus on the accessories. Skirt from Kimchi & Blue (at Urban Outfitters), Uniqlo tee-shirt, very old H&M cardigan (I replaced the original buttons by hearts), black opaque tights with heart tights over them (for a super opaque look + texture), shoes from ASOS (these ones).

Day

Since it is cold at the moment, I added a sleeveless denim vest over everything (vintage, from my maman's closet) and cinched in the waist with my favourite woven leather belt (also vintage, thrifted). The necklaces are from Disney Couture (the locket) and the fawn is a present from my sister.

Day

To finish off the outfit, I am wearing a Primark coat I bought a couple of years ago (and that lasted that long, surprisingly enough). I sewed on it a vintage fur collar I had lying around and a ribbon tie. Brooch from Vivienne Westwood and bag from Luella.

I kept the same base (skirt + black tee shirt) and added a slightly dressier cardigan from Topshop and shoes from Office.

How do you decide what to wear in the morning? How do you select your clothes? Do you have a go to outfit?
