So I’ve not been feeling overly well this week and have bit picked up a rather nasty bug. So it was nice to get a name mention from an interview ( link here) I’d completed with Giffi Fields early in the year in the recent Scarlet & Jo blog where they are featuring pictures of bloggers in the new AW15 collections.
Now one thing I just need to know – where was my invite Giffi my love, ha ha? https://scarlettandjo.wordpress.com/2015/09/08/paradise-lost-and-regained/
If you follow me on pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/janiesingermode/ you’ll know I love gardening veggies and flowers. In fact I’ve just put a new flower bed in place and put up lots of hanging baskets I’m really turning into a gardening health freak :0) . I do have some summer items that have flowers on but I’m really not over-ally girly flowery type person.
I’m certainly not interested in a AW15 collection that has tons of flower prints and girly elegant long ball gowns and maxis. I’m more a rock type chick with a bit of paisley 70s mixed in :0) . So I was very pleased to see this tunic, this is definitely one of my favorite looks from Scarlet & Jo modeled via a rather cutsie blogger Mrs Bebe
The garment is described as a keyhole tunic, in monochrome ( black & white) , it features kimono style elbow length sleeves with a slight flare from the waist. The tunic quite happily sits on the mid thigh or if you are vertically challenged (its a joke don’t kill me) could sit on or around the knee area.
I’m not aware of the fabric please Giffi let it be silk or a cotton mix ( pretty please) – hate fabrics made from polyester, they can be so hot. The tunic anyway to me, seems to emit tones of retroism, I’d pair it with a gorgeous pair of suede boots, I’d probably add wine colored boots ( theres some nice ones in Evans currently) maybe a floppy hat to mix in the 70s theme. Well I love it just needs my body in it, nice tunic Giffi my old chum, keep them coming x.
I also like the pattern and top half on this dress, its a maxi and has the paisley print I love, as its a maxi its not for me but if it was above knee length or just a peplum top I’d be all over it as I really dig the neckline and sleeves. I suppose I could cut the bottom off and work my personal magic on it for my style requirements. But then would I offend lovely Giffi and his team mmm probably !. Instead I’ll ask pretty please for a top or shorter dress in a similar style or a tunic that I can wear with a leather jacket would be super dupa :0) . The gorgeous girlie in the pic is of course the stunning Mayah ( sorry darling dont know what your blog name is) . So out of the AW15 collection I like 1.5 items not bad for me really as I can be super critical.
Thanks for reading ( unless your not then your loss :0) kisses xxxxxxx)
