I have had a MASSIVE clear out, ie everything is gone except for about 40 items of clothing (that's in total) jeans, tops, dresses etc etc.
Therefore I needed to be unusually organised about my stuff for Paris in order to not pack it up for removal.
The travelling outfit consisted of Blumarine dress (worn as top) It is beautiful lace and sequins, I've only ever worn over a copper one-piece as a beach cover up in the past. It was from TK Maxx in Kensington and I had my eye on it for a while, it started at £249 and I finally bought it when it was reduced further to £49.
The trousers are the most amazing elastane Joseph jodhpurs from a second hand shop that was closing down they cost about £10, they have stayed brilliant white and kept their shape for about 15 years, if I ever found another pair I would buy in a heartbeat.
Belt was from Nicole Fahri from my friend's shop, unfortunately it has fallen victim to unrealistic business rates and impossible parking restrictions.
The coat was £200 from Ebay (ever the contrarian, I bought it in high summer when nobody else is seeking out shearlings)
I thought my 'shopping' outfit for day two quite successful, until I saw the 'real' pics, where my bad deportment and Gargantuan proportions next to my fine boned friends, are not good.
The dress is from my favourite consignment store, which has truly beautiful clothes. It is Missoni and I got it in last year's summer sale for 60 quid.
The belt is £6.99 H & M and the coat £4.99 from Karen Millen via Ebay.
It was so hot that the coat wasn't needed and I'm not sure that I should EVER venture out in the dress on its own again.
This black number is for drinks at Costes, it was £11 from TK Maxx at Clapham Junction, it is is pure silk, fitted around the hips and baggy on the top, it is by a Scandinavian brand called Tiger, and when I put it on, I noticed that the label said 699 euro! Shoes are my only high ones, from Reiss (Bicester about 40 quid)
The final outfit is an Herve Leger dress from Ebay, I bought it for £50 and what you can't see is that the zip is broken and the back completely open with just a hook and eye at the top, I would never squeeze into it if the zip actually worked, and I don't mind how it looks. I would always wear with this cardigan top from Jigsaw (Bicester 30 quid) anyway.
