Last week I learnt the hard way that I really, really needed some new jumpers in order to not lose my arms to the Sheffield Winter. As such, I was positively delighted to receive this beautifully Autumnal magenta and black long sleeved jumper from Yours clothing. It arrived just in time for me to go to the fair which was VERY lucky as I am notorious for dressing entirely inappropriately for such events, freeze my boobs off and end up living in a hot bath for weeks afterwards.
First things first, the sleeves on this jumper are full length, as in: The full length of my arms. This is a rarity in itself. It's also a lovely length, I've rolled it under a bit here with the skirt being a longer length but with jeans or a mini skirt I would definitely have it a bit longer. The side ruching is really flattering, a friend of mine with a much larger bust tried it on almost before it was even out of the bag and she looked an absolute bombshell in it, which suggests to me that it would really work with a variety of figures. Finally, I'm well into the deep magenta colour with my hair, the pictures make me look a wee bit eccentric and I'm really digging it,
For me, Autumn is all about layers and this jumper is warm yet light enough to wear under a coat without becoming a big sweaty palava. It's also not itchy as heck so you don't need to worry too much about an additional layer underneath.
I also received this fab denim midi pencil skirt - I love me a good denim skirt and this is ideal for the 60s mod look that I perpetually crave. It has an elasticated waistband which I generally avoid because of the tendency they have to twist/dig in/cut you into a link of sausages. However, this band is nice and thick and properly stitched into the skirt so that it sits tight against my middle with none of that kind of debacle. The length is also great, as you know, I'm 6ft and this skirt falls below the knee even as I'm walking.
In both items, I'm wearing a 16, I'd recommend that with the jumper you size up (unless you like your knitwear tight obvs) but the skirt has great stretch so I'd say size down to keep the pencil shape pencil-y.
To go to the fair I wrapped up in my Evans coat and new faux fur stole from Select, I had one almost identical but flushed it down a toilet in a freak KFC incident (don't ask...) and it's taken me forever to find another one I like - expect to see much more of it! I'm also wearing my heeled chelsea boots from New Look which I've already worn to within an inch of their size 9 lives and my standard 120 den Primark tights - perfect on my 34inch legs.
Just a final picture for you, I was at the top of the big wheel trying not lose control of my faculties here, flipping good job I was so well wrapped up - Thank you Yours for stopping me from freezing my bottom off!
