Ruffle My Feathers

I build my outfits from a single piece; starting with the item I want to wear on that day and pulling other things from there. This outfit was began with my new vintage feather fascinator. I wanted to build off the various warm colors and actually ended up with a very neutral outfit for me. Black, browns, and a small dash of blue and yellow? This is quite different from my usual mad clash of colors.

  1. I love the color combination! I have to admit I'm very partial to feathers and mustard yellow. Your photos have also reinforced my need to go West. It looks so beautiful and serene where you live.

  3. You make vests work for you so well -- I feel like they look ridiculous on me, but they're gorgeous on you! Funny how we make "style guidelines/rules" for ourselves...

    & how do you keep your nails so pristine? Or do you redo them often?

  4. I build my outfits the same way haha

    you look lovely even though you're not wearing so much color as usual, anyway you're still wearing color, I mean only the dress is black, all the accessories pop up (I don't know if I've explained myself properly xD) well probably I say so because I am adding black right now to my wardrobe, I have too many colored things already! haha

  34. I am totally in love with fascinators lately, and so of course yours is delightful! I also love the simple outfit that you've designed around it - the shoes being my favourite part I think

    ReplyDelete
  35. ahh stunning! I love the subtle colours here, suits your backdrop very nicely indeed. LOVE the shoes. I think you said in previous posts your 5ft1? I'm still trying to get my head round that as I'd always imagined you to be of similar height to me (5ft7), very hard to tell from photographs! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. that fascinator is just darling :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love the color of your bag, it's really pretty!

    ReplyDelete

    Ohhh,the dress i wore.The ribbon actually is attached to the dress itself <3

  59. The fascinator is beautiful! (An accessory with which I am truly obsessed with at the moment, along with all other manner of headbands and hair accessories). I also really like the H&M vest...I was contemplating buying it myself, and I should have damn it! It looks great :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. that cognac brown with the musturd is perfect for fall. (It's probably a bad thing that I'm comparing colors to alcohal...) The fascinator is simply beautiful.

  64. that blue vest is gorgeous...it looks so great with the black dress, and somehow it's so unexpected - a white or black vest would have been more typical - but this looks even better xxx
