I attended the Derek Lawlor for Ethologie show in ME London and it was incredible. I've known Derek for a long time and it is always a pleasure to see his intricate knit designs and to see how his work progresses each year. He is such a humble chap and his work is so impressive - check out his work here and pics from his show can be found on his Instagram/Facebook accounts.
WHAT I WORE
You'll notice from my pics that I'm wearing a polo neck. Many of you are probably shaking your head and saying "You shouldn't wear polo necks as they aren't flattering"...well as I've mentioned before, I don't always dress to flatter my figure, you don't need to either and as long as you like something and feel good in it; you should wear it! This navy polo neck is from Marks and Spencers and I am glad I decided to try this style because I think it complimented the 70s vibe perfectly.
My skirt is from the Look Magazine range for Simply Be and I've worn it so many times since getting it last year. I love how the colours match the anorak perfectly and I picked up the blue in the skirt by wearing 'Malibu' by Barry M on my nails. My necklace is a mega old ASOS jobby and it was great to wear it again. Suede is a key fabric for this era and the thought of wearing a jacket or skirt might seem a little daunting so I introduced it into my outfit via my roll top clutch bag.
My orange ring is from Topshop, the small semi precious stone ring is also from Topshop and so are my boots which are sadly out of stock now and finally, my lippy is from MAC and the shade is called Chili.
