Outfit: Purple Roses



This was an outfit for a cloudy day, when it was still cool enough to wear things like velvet skirts. I have been going through a purple phase recently, and so put together this very purple ensemble, complete with purple lipstick.


Minus the cardigan, it makes me think of Vianne's outfits in the film Chocolat, especially with the shape of the neckline on the top. The skirt is vintage, and HAS POCKETS! I love it when skirts and dresses have pockets. I wish more women's clothing did.


The print on the velvet of the skirt is absolutely gorgeous, with paisley and luscious purple roses. I love how much the colours pop from the black background. I'm looking forward to wearing it more in the winter,

  1. Purple really suits you - and that skirt is amazing! I would love one just like it.

    I know what you mean about pockets they are so useful. Most of mine are in my trousers so when I wear a skirt I really miss them.

    1. Thanks Rebecca! I actually keep forgetting this skirt has pockets because I'm so unused to them!

    1. Thanks, hopefully there will be more purple outfits soon (as soon as it stops being so unbearably hot here)!

  3. I love this outfit. Rebecca is right, purple is SUCH a great colour for you! And I just lovelovelove the dark lipstick on you. Not everybody can wear that but on you it just looks so right.

  4. You look stunning here Polly, that shade of purple is gorgeous on you and you're right, more skirts and dresses need pockets, it's just so convenient! Love the print on your skirt too, and your ring. - Tasha
