Office Looks – totally inappropriate looks for the office

August 2, 2013

The price intelligence charges its chosen ones is resignation to daily banality.

Don Calacho
And it is with another Don Calacho aphorism that I start a new edition of Office Looks. It’s been a while since the last one, no? So here are a couple more examples of my resistance to daily banality. This time the common denominator is the beije coloured H&M skirt I got from Ebay some time ago. I have been enjoying experimenting with longer lengths but as I’m fairly short and don’t have long legs, I need to compensate with platform shoes as it elongates the lower part of my body visually. Which one is your favourite?

Hello my blogland friends!

This has been a fairly busy week, lots of work and things to do here and there… It’s good to be busy. I finally received the Modekungen shoes with the clear heel – they took forever and a day to arrive from Singapore but well worth the wait. They are actually comfortable! I also wore for the first time the Helga boots from Deandri (the snakeskin clogs), as I bought them from Ebay a long time ago but had them delivered to Florida to save on postage and had to haul them back to the UK. As hubby is coming to Europe I won’t be able to do that again. Not that I’m complaining!

Other than that I’ve been hanging out with friends – as the weather is nicer and we’ve had some visits from Lisbon, it’s a lot more conducive to spending time outside the house. I suspect it’s going to be like this throughout the whole of the Summer.

I hope you have a lovely week! I am preparing a sunglasses giveaway for next Friday, so stay tuned and don’t forget to come back for it!
