Take 10 – Dorothy Perkins challenge

  waistcoat: dorothy perkins; skirt: american apparel; vest: h&m; shoes: ioffer


I am proud to introduce to you all… the first take10 challenge! 
Dorothy Perkins sent us this beautiful Lace Waistcoat (which can be found here), I found styling this very difficult as in the past I have been known to buy waistcoats and never wear them, but as I have a love for lace this one was perfect!

It’s amazing how we all worked the waistcoat so differently, I am thoroughly loving this project and can not wait for the next one!

We want to know how you would style the waistcoat? & who’s style do you prefer!

I think you did a great job! I also like the styling from Vicki and Saskia. It's a beautiful piece and apparently very versatile. But a good fashion girl can make any piece into her pet chameleon ;)

Wow, I found your blog through Shini's blog, and I think your variation with the lace is amazing. Tucking it into your skirt. I love it!

I have to say your outfit was the cutest! And I love the heels.

By the way, I was watching Who Do You Think You Are? last night and Cassino was mentioned in it (the battle in WW2). Thought you'd be interested!
