Since for various reasons my hair has now changed from a peroxided white-blonde mid-length bob, to a short Manic Panic Candy Cotton Pink bob (more of that later), I’ve been looking for ways to accessorise with my new hair. After all, the last time I had pink hair was in my twenties, and those years are now long gone!
So here I am with my patent nude Kurt Geiger heels, teal Dorothy Perkins dress, yellow and white-cream Karen Millen coat, and bright pink patent H&M for Versace Belt. Not forgetting the aviator shades and Rimmel’s ‘Pin-up’ pink lip-gloss, of course!
This pair of Kurt Geiger Snakeskin Salem boots (see previous Geiger Counter post for more details) are fantastically appropriate footwear for unpredictable Spring weather (if I’m allowed to call it Spring yet?!).
The perfect foil to any unexpected shower, these fakey snakey bikers look funky and fresh with any outfit – and give my smart pink 3/4 length Karen Millen coat a suitably subversive and casual twist.
I live on the South coast where it’s invariably brisk and brrreeezy, so along with the rest of Brighton I’m still wearing my winter woollies (which maybe answers my Spring question above!).
Today’s long, silver-grey glitterball-style sequinned jumper is by Fenn Wright Manson. Its delicate colour and scalloped edges remind me of oysters – and lovely lady parts, which is perhaps why subconsciously I find it so appealing! It’s lovely and long and wonderfully warm, and it belts up beautifully. Plus, when the light shines on the sequins I become my own little glitter ball – which the kids just love! I’m not one for muted colours, but this textured top magically lifts my spirits every time I put it on.
Unable to avoid my favoured colour-clash fashion entirely, however, I’m wearing these KG snakeskin boots, FWM silver-sequinned jumper and KM pink coat combination with an flippy orange dress from Dorothy Perkins.
Thus attired, I am ready and prepared for any meteorological eventuality, and fashion-forward whatever the weather!
Today’s school run shoes are these fakey snakey Salem boots from Kurt Geiger – the first KG footwear you’ll see on here, but certainly not the last!
From the Kurt Geiger pre-Christmas sale, they’re fast becoming a firm favourite. I think they ROCK (in my usual so-bad-they’re-good questionable-taste way), but would perhaps have preferred them in a cowboy boot shaped style, just to increase the doubt-factor!
