On the bench

Shorts & Belt: Vintage. Lace Top: TopShop. Blazer: River Island. 
Clogs: Jeffery Campbell. Clutch: Lara Bohinc

I love the dimensions of a blazer with really short shorts, it kinda balances the whole look. I also love the shape of this lace top. It's totally see through but still manages to be prim due to the high neck line and the structured shoulder. I wear it with a corset bra type thing and nipple plasters!

This week I went to the Volvo subject 60 party in London. So much fun! I met up with Sabrina from afterdrk and Andy from stylescrapbook .  Such lovely ladies! It's always so nice to meet other bloggers. The night was spent drinking whiskey sours, dancing our asses off and singing (badly) in the Volvo karaoke car. 
We completely monopolized the car and sang our little hearts out to 'I Will Survive' and 'Killing In The Name Of'. You can see some more pictures of the party on stylescrapbook ... I never remember to take my camera out!


Thanks so much to all of you who take the time to follow and comment on here. You are all my 
lovelies!

  1. I really enjoyed this post ! I'm envious over your Jeffery Campbell clogs, but I'm going to the states in August so I will def pick up a pair. The blazer fits you really well, good tailoring works a dream and cleans up any outfit.

    I would love to know what your skin care regime is! Your skin is flawless, porcelain like!

  3. stilettolover91- If we all had the same taste in shoes the fashion world would be a very boring place! I personally detest thin stiletto heels (I think they look tacky and dated) BUT I can still appreciate somebody else's like for them :)

  8. Wow, I only wish that I had the sense of style you have.

    I'm tall, so finding nice clothes that don't make me look proportioned is so hard!

  29. Lace never looked so good. Plus the blazer is great for anyone who is more modest but wants to pull this look off. I love this outfit.

  45. Hey Ashley! I think you are a very pretty girl, and I love your blog, but there is something that bothers me in your pictures. You never seems to stand straight and often look crocked.. I think it's a shame for someone pretty as you and I thing you should try to stand up straight especially your neck and shoulders...
    Hope you won't take it the wrong way.

    Bless

  46. Anonymous- OMG I laughed SO hard when I read this! They're not school photographs!!!! They are 'fashion' shots. Shapes and angles make a picture interesting... to me. If you want straight on STRAIGHT shots you should maybe start your own blog :)
