Topshop hat
Wildfox t shirt
Forever 21 skirt, shoes & bag

I wouldn't normally wear so much of one brand in one outfit but my trip to Forever 21 last Saturday really demanded this. Despite my collection of sample, designer, and on-trend shoes, never before have I received so much attention over a pair in one day: I was chased down the street in Liverpool yesterday by someone wanting to know where they're from (Forever 21, if you're curious, with the wonderfully floaty skirt being another F21 special). Finished off with a Wildfox tee and ancient Topshop hat this was the ideal Californian style outfit for not-so-ideal Manchester weather.

I know that since moving to Manchester from Cheshire, the country's capital of antiques markets, car boots, and vintage fairs, I have really missed these chances to rummage, so I was really pleased to hear that Real Radio are holding a car boot on Sunday 5th August at Salford City Stadium. Seller pitches are £10 each, with all proceeds going to When You Wish Upon A Star - granting wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. I know bloggers like Sara Waiste and Jazzabelle always get beautiful second-hand pieces so I'm really hoping to do well at this city car boot. Let me know if you're planning to visit and we will strategise!


  1. I've been really happily surprised by F21 recently, they've got quite a few really nice pieces.

    Your whole outfit is really lovely. :)

    I love seeing other Manchester based blogs floating around on the net!

  2. You're looking very slender Dotty. Lovely outfit- I am quite jel of your growing Wildfox collection! With regards to your comment on my blog, you are more than welcome to raid my closet.
    As you know, I'm off to LDN, so if you're in the area, look me up. Fashion week perhaps?


  3. Hey, in rely to your comment the fabric is like a stretchy jersey fabric. I bought it at Abakahans and it was just in a pile labelled "t-shirt fabric". :) xxx


  4. Love your tee, and the rest!! xo

  5. Wildfox love FOREVER! Love the bowler too. Cuuuute.

    The Style Rawr!

  6. Wildfox I loveeee it! And I loved you wearing this outfit (or something of a similar kind!) when I met you! The shoes and hat just top it all off. Absolute lust. You can pull of this look really well and if I did it I'd just look like some androgynous loser Victorian!
