Oh look a bird !

Boo! how you doing petals? It's the weekend and I thought I would share with you a work ensemble! Sheer excitement I know. This is one of my favourite coat's, I had an epiphany about a month or so ago to add a leopard collar so it would end up looking like a vivetta coat I have been yearning for. This bird blouse is from ASOS, my lovely got it for me for Christmas, I love the print and collar, but not too keen on the height the drawstring is, it doesn't sit on my waist so makes me feel a bit fuddy duddy mumsy.


Vivetta coat is a dream





This is my bird shadow puppet,his name is bogey.

  1. Cute, cute, cute! I have a teal vintage coat too & I think I’m gonna steal your idea! But where did you get that oversized cheetah collar? I think the bird print shirt looks flattering on you.

  9. Your blouse is so sweet and I love all the detailing on it. I think it looks lovely with the pencil skirt as well, not at all fuddy duddy. With a more flared skirt, you might be on dangerous ground but it's lovely in these pics.

  11. I far prefer your coat with (or without) the fabulous collar to the Vivetta one! Nicer shape,and it's far more original!

  13. Wow gorgeous outfit! Your coat is such a beautiful colour and looks amazing with the leopard collar, much better than the designer one! Your blouse is totally delightful and is definitely not fuddy or duddy at all! x

  14. I think the leopard collar improvisation on that jacket is actually cuter than the Vivetta original upon which you modeled it!! The print on that bird blouse is too cute, as well. Great outfit!
