While I was looking for some ’70s style inspiration for last week’s post I came across some fabulous paisley shirts. Well, that ended up in me disappearing down another eBay rabbit hole! I saw an orange paisley shirt dress, which looked great with a wide tan belt on the mannequin. However, it was a size 8. On the off chance of finding one in my size I put in the exact search terms…and hit the jackpot! This is a size 12, which I thought might be a bit loose as it’s from Marks & Spencer. However, it’s actually quite the opposite. A size 10 would definitely have been too tight on the bust. The extra hidden buttons which prevent gaping is a brilliant feature…if only all shirts had these!
I have some tan boots in exactly the same shade as the belt but these darker ones look better with the brown tights. Although the predominant colour in the paisley pattern is orange, it also has blue, cream, brown and black in the mix. I chose my Temperley London bag to pick out the brown and black. Wearing neutral accessories allows the orange to stand out more. I could wear this orange paisley shirt dress over trousers or jeans with a faux fur or shearling gilet for a cool boho ’70s look.
I wore the dress unbuttoned at the top so I could show you my fabulous new initial necklace from oNecklace. The unusual sideways design of the initial really appealed to me, and having my name engraved on it is a lovely detail. oNecklace currently have some great deals on, plus they are offering free delivery guaranteed for Christmas. This is my second piece from them (I featured the owl necklace earlier in the year) and I’m so pleased with both of them. You get the choice of two types of clasp and chain with the necklaces, plus five length options. If you’re looking for a beautiful and unusual Christmas gift for a loved one I’d definitely recommend taking a look at the oNecklace website; they have an extensive range of personalised necklaces, as well as bracelets, rings and earrings.
