This skirt still holds the honour of being my favourite piece in my wardrobe. It's such a statement and can easily be dressed up or down. Perfecto! I wore this outfit out for a birthday burger at Honest with my blogger babes at the weekend. They very kindly surprised me with the gift of a Lulu Guinness lips clutch bag. I suppose after hearing me drone on and on about how I needed one in my life helped them make their decision. I was absolutely blown away by their generosity - I may have let out an excited squeal - and I feel very lucky to have such amazing friends in my life. Who says internet friends aren't real friends eh?


  1. Lots of love Sophie, was laaavely as always to see you! Glad you liked the clutch ;)

  3. LOL. An "honorable" skirt - I like that concept. It's a lovely skirt. I like that it's metallic and full - and full of personality too. You styled it well.
