Yet again I am featuring my new favourites Taking Shape! I saw the Starburst Gilet when I went for my personal shopping experience, but swayed away because I always go for red & black, but having since seen it had been reduced even more to only £19.00, I had to go back and snap it up! You can too here! This was originally £90.00, was £45.00 when I was first in store, but as I have already said, now only £19.00. What a bargain!!!!!
The pictures I have had taken today don’t really show you how this is really flattering, and shows off my waist to perfection. Yes, I do have one….. Lol! But, the person I asked to help me with the photos is 6ft8ins, which in some respects is good, but you can’t see my curves as well as I could when I took my usual sub-standard photo, head on, in the toilet mirror with the lovely hand wash station behind me….. Lol!
I teamed this up with the Integra 3/4 Sleeve Body Tee which is part of TS’s Essential range, which are classed as an under-garments and are ideal for wearing underneath certain garments, and a really fantastic idea. Well done TS!
Being a shorty, the gilet does come up quite long on me, but I think it still looks amazing, and with my Slimma Leggings I got last Summer from Simply Be (similar here), I think this is a really flattering, comfortable look, for day or night!
To keep the chill off, as there is still a nip in the air, I also had my faithful TS Decorous Jacquard Vest closeby, which is also available in the sale for £19.00, however, I was very lucky to have been gifted this by TS when I went to the store. However, I actually prefer the overall look without the vest, as I feel the vest hides my shape, but it is ideal to give that extra layer for added warmth until the sun decides to stay with us for a bit longer than a few minutes!
The majority of the Joolz are also from my friend’s TS, with the exception of the “Rock” necklace, which was one of my thrifty charity shop purchases at the weekend (see post here). The TS Joolz are also available in their sale. Here are some pics of the jewellery taken from the website to give you a better idea (note one necklace I have on which I purchased in store cannot be found online):
The ankle boots are my good old Ebay find before Christmas all they way from China, and having looked today cannot find them now…. Sorry. There are lots very similar out there if you fancy something like this. I love these boots, they look good with so many different outfits.
As you all know I do like a good old vintage look, but I have to say I loved releasing my inner Rock Chick today! What look have you taken on this Manic Monday?
