Fuchsia With Copper Bookends

Put on your sunglasses, I am bright today! 
In my clothes, if not my demeanour!

  • Top - Asos, thrifted; last worn here (3rd outfit) on the weekend for shopping adventures
  • Trousers - Ralph Lauren, thrifted; last worn here last week with a dress and a tie
  • Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last seen here in January with many shiny greens

I've been wanting to do this outfit since I bought these two items (on the same weekend, I think...yup, here). I love how the bright copper of the leather shirt (leather!) bookended the copper shoes.
And why not fushcia? Why not, I say!

The stuff:
When your clothes are shouting, best to keep the bling simple.

  • Earrings - gift from Simar

If you consider jumbo pink earrings simple. I do!


  1. Hooray: outfit perfection! Proportions right on, colour combination inspired. The best part: I have been just *waiting* for those copper 'Vogs and the copper top to meet ... but could never have anticipated that they would do so in the company of fuchsia. Girl, you are brilliant.

  2. Fabulous!
    Every time I see a back picture of this top, I want to ask you: does it have bust darts or other front shaping! From here, it looks as if not, which leads me to postulate that it might also work very nicely worn back to front as an open jacket? It's stellar as is, obviously, so that would just be an extra bonus.

    1. It actually does not have front darts, and someone at work asked me about wearing it back to front as well (great minds!). I might try that...although the back is longer than the front, I think it could work. Great idea!

  3. Love how bright and colourful this is! You know how to wear colours well. This outfit really made me smile, I'm imagining it made you smile all day too :)

  4. Yep, the shoes and top do all the talking. Good choice.

  5. It has long been my contention that, if you cannot be bright, you can at least dress brightly. Your outfit delights me.

    Today, I am wearing royal blue full linen pants, royal purple socks. scarlet shoes, and a kelly green blouse with giant tropical fish printed on it.

    You and I would not be allowed to stand next to one another, in a group photograph.

    1. LinB, this sounds wonderful! I think we would both look fabulous side by side!

  6. ohhhhhhh I LOVE THIS!! HOW FUN!! YES, I'm YELLING cuz its SO GREAT!!! :)

  7. Fabulous! What a brilliant combination of colours!



  8. this is just WOW. Brilliant Indeed. In more ways than one.

  9. Deeply cool outfit! I want a gold top and/or dress in a similar fabric so much. I've been hunting for one for years now, but haven't quite hit on a winner yet. One day, I hope. Love that you paired yours with fuschia here. Beautiful styling!
