Ok folks, I don't usually do the same outfit two days in a row, but I am beginning to enjoy this little experiment.
I would normally shy well away(as in, the store wouldn't even get a look in if I saw it in the window) from loud colours and patterns like this, but strangely(perhaps due to shock) when I wore it today the reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
I took Kat George's advice and wore it with boots, kept the trench but lightened it with traditional Lady M black and white. Can I do it three days in a row? Hhhhmmmmm.....
