my current style inspirations earlier in the month. Her wardrobe of brightly coloured miniskirts or minidresses and matching jackets really captures the imagination. Well, what do you know, within a couple of weeks, a very nice Taralicious crimplene dress suit had appeared on Kinky Melon's shop website for £35. And now it has appeared in my wardrobe.
I know, I know, I used to detest crimplene. I'm still not 100% convinced by how it feels under my nails, it feels a tad 'squeaky' to me, but Ann and Curtise have made me reappraise its potential, and actually, I do really appreciate some of its qualities, mainly that it won't need ironing (there is a MASSIVE pile of ironing out of view in these shots) and moths won't touch it. I spend so much of my time scrutinising stuff for moths, it's a relief to own at least one thing that won't ever be at risk of being munched. So sign me up to Team Crimplene.
The buttons down the front of the jacket, and little buckles on the side straps, are a white moonglow plastic. Needless to say, 'string of beads in white moonglow' has gone straight to the top of my wishlist.
