Rocking Up (or Blowing Away) in Red!

It was so stormy when we took these photos but I was determined to get outdoor photos despite the weather. I’m wearing red in honour of Friday’s Rock Up In Red day for the British Heart Foundation. I hope you did the same!

I’m afraid the House of Deron gilet is now sold out in Room 31 – well done those of you who snapped it up after my last post here. I hope you love it as much as I do – I was surprised at how well it looked with a skirt so will definitely be wearing it this way again.

You can still pick up this gilet on the Lovarni website here for £35.99 Just L & XL left but it is a small fit so a Large would only be about a 12. Other sizes are available here on Amazon for around the same price. Or you could go for something a bit  different. This one is from Mango at ASOS – reduced in the sale to £36 but it has a knitted back rather than the faux leather in the House of Deron one.

 In researching this, I appear to have been distracted by the 70%-off sale on ASOS so I’m abandoning you now in order to give it my full attention…I may be some time…

  2. LOVE this post! Looks a bit windy out there ;) I do like the Gilet styled like that and might just give something like this ago whereas usually I wouldn’t have. x

  3. Oh bless you – the things we do for blogs including standing there posing in gale force winds! Those Mango boots are earning their keep aren’t they?
