The Grass Is Greener

"I want to move faraway
Faraway from everyone
Where the grass is greener
Where the sky is softer
The rivers will stay calm
And the birds will sing my song"
~ Unknown

I have a few of these leather Tees by Emma Manley (see here and here). Paired with jeans in Winter, and shorts in Summer, they have become a wardrobe staple for me, and I couldn't resist adding another one to my ever growing collection. This one is especially gorgeous; it's leather, and it's green! Maybe it's the Irish in me - whatever, I had to have it.

Green leather is unusual. Green leather is cool. It's just not something you see every day. Made from the softest nappa leather, this simple design is effortlessly stylish. It has a boxy fit, dips longer at the back, where a full length zip runs all the way down the centre, and a contrasting white panel takes it to a whole new level of fabulous.
I styled it with skinny jeans, my favourite over-the-knee boots, and the the most gorgeous bag by Lulu Guinness. The 'Marcie' bag was a birthday present from my wonderful boyfriend. He said the iconic Lulu doll face design on the front reminded him of me. I adore my bag, it is a perfect mix of practical and fun.

Second Hand Rose

"Even clothes I'm wearing
someone wore before.
It's no wonder that I feel abused,
I never get a thing that ain't been used.
I'm wearing second hand hats,
Second hand clothes,
That's why they call me
Second hand Rose."

My vintage wardrobe is growing, slowly but surely. Up to now, I have heavily favoured pieces from the 1970s, but this latest addition to my little collection is a whole decade older.

This gorgeous 1960s mini dress is from Peekaboo Vintage. A great take on the classic LBD, it is brightened up beautifully by a colourful, striped waistband and pretty, slit sleeves in rich shades of purple, red, orange, white, black and green. A deep, plunging neckline takes it from sweet to sexy, and a removable double rose pin on the chest draws all eyes to a sultry flash of cleavage.

I styled my dress with a great pair of turquoise Miu Miu shoes. The lush colour clashes beautifully with the dress; I love a funky colour clash, if it's good enough for Sex And The City's Carrie Bradshaw, it's good enough for me.
