A Winter's Gig...

When one of the girls over at the lovely Shiny Fashion Forums asked for some advice about an outfit to wear to a gig this December (in the c-c-cold), my mind went into Get Her Look mode, and I decided to put together a budget(ish) look from one of my high street faves, Dorothy Perkins!

Julia's specific requirements were that the outfit would keep her warm; that it would give her some height (she's a shortie); and that there'd be sufficient storage for her camera, mobile, chupa chups (omg, so cute) and her telephone number (to throw to the band ;). I scoured DP's website to put together a look for £150 or less, and came up with this number!

In terms of my reasoning behind the outfit..

It's simple to wear, but has a quirky rock-ette edge with the studded belt, diamante 'Rock Nation' t-shirt and the cute button-detailed scarf and gloves. The wool coat would be enough to keep her warm, it's in a classic shape that won't date, and would be easily removed once inside the venue. The lovely ankle boots would add a bit of height - but not so much as to foster sore feet - and the straight-leg jeans would tuck nicely into the boot for toasty toes. I added a beret for warmth (and because I just love berets), and a functional yet glam little cross-the-body bag for all her bits and pieces.

The unfortunate side-effect of said outfit?

Now *I* want it! :):):)

Oh my! What a totally cute outfit! Now I want it to! Another shoe with an edge that I found is a shearling Miu Miu ankle boot!
I think that also has a rocker edge to it, that is perfect for the season and outfit!

That one'd work nicely too! (but I'm still way too enamoured with that gorgeous grey one to change it ;)
