Vintage inspiration

The shoe of this weekend is a pink silk mule with ribbon trim from Wales in the 1730s.
So I tried taking advantage of the monstrous semi-annual sale going on at La Senza but sadly my size was basically already gone, except for one green and pink bra off which I cut off the plaid bow because it didn't look right.
Then I bought two camisoles at Garage (white and navy blue) with the back completely made of lace.

I was aiming for a timeless, elegant look here, but the bright satchel gives it a modern twist. It may not look like it belongs but I know it could work, it just depends on your style. With the red necklace I wanted to create a pop of colour other than the bag that could contrast nicely with the off white blouse (which would be neatly tucked into the pencil skirt). Chanel earrings and pearls add a gentle sophistication to the outfit. A gold watch and black pumps are simple, yet they help enhance the idea.

XOXO,
Nina
