O' Sailor Why'd You Do It ?

I have always had a fascination with the sea and anything related i.e. sailors, mermaids, wooden ships, hidden treasure. So why not dress like a sailor? The jumper is from topshop and the dress worn as a skirt is h&m. This ensemble was a hit with the elderly a few weekends ago when I wore it, one lady went to stroke my arm when I was wearing this...

  14. That second sailor picture looks suspiciously like a young Tony Curtis...

    I've always thought that brown and blue mix well together. You've just proved it and then some!

    By the way, I've passed on the Liebster Blog Award to your blog, congratulations!

  15. Stunning...no, wait, stunning isn't quite strong enough...sublime! Yes, that's it. This whole look is completely, fashionably, gorgeously sublime.
