Twenty-three or "Aw, snap!"

I'm taking a break from my ongoing holiday boast to share an outfit from the past week. It does feature an American cardigan purchase though so rest assured that I'm not holding off from bragging completely.

It's been feeling more and more wintry this week so there was no better time to dust off my faux fur stole from last winter that I affectionately refer to as my 'fake roadkill' AKA Boris. It goes without saying that I would never wear *actual* roadkill... or real fur.  I mean, yuck. Boris is so warm and stroke-able that whenever I wear him it's like walking around whilst having my cat draped around my neck, which would never happen in real life.

Fake Roadkill: H&M
Cardigan: Silence + Noise at Urban Outfitters, USA (Size XS)
Dress: Topshop (Size 6)
Boots: Topshop (Size 5)

I bought the cardigan in the States and have been pretty much living in it ever since. I love the colour, the slouchy kimono-esque batwing shape and the unusual marble knit effect (my own terminology).  Here it is without Boris:

Yes, this dress was in my last post too. It is wonderfully versatile.

And the marble bobble knit in close-up:

Have you ever turned up to something and realised, to your horror, that you're not the only person in the room in that there outfit? This happened to me this week when I got to work and realised that the lovely Andrea, WHO I SIT NEXT TO, was in a very similar get up. We fell about laughing and promptly took a picture:

Yes, Andrea's dress has featured previously. I also have her necklace, nearly wore it too!

Andrea's Necklace: H&M
Andrea's Dress & Cardigan: River Island

One last look at the outfit sans Boris (aww) AND some outtakes for general mirth.

Sigh, usual fringe-related problems.

Realisation of outfit duplication.

Nope, really can't remember what we were doing here.

So. Very. Cold.


  1. i love this outfit, the colour combinations of your dress, cardigan and faux fur work so well together :)
