I’ve finally joined the caped crusaders! That statement has made me wonder – if I was a superhero, what would my name be? Right now I’m thinking Fash Gal could be a good way to go?? I kind of feel like this look is a cross between Minnie Mouse and a school girl, maybe sprinkled with a bit of winter Clueless…what a fabulously random combo! I have literally not taken this blanket off since I got it – in the house, out the house, loosely slung over jeans and sweatshirt…but this is my fave way to wear it so far
I borrowed a tip from my pal Gok (love that guy!) and belted the front to add shape and play with the dimensions, but to be honest I really like it both fitted or loose. I’ve looked at a lot of similar blankets on the high street and this is one of the best quality and (without exception) best value for money. Winner! I don’t think I can pull off over the knee boots so I thought I’d give socks a go as an alternative, I’m glad I did as they kept me warm on a chilly day and look so cute! I just had a simple white shirt on under the blanket (as featured on my Still Clueless? post a few weeks back) to kept it all about the checks and my fab lil coated skater skirt peeking out underneath. I’m so into textures right now and I had a great mix of wool, chiffon, pleather ish and embossed cotton. Awesome autumn outfit.
