Whenever I have a successful pre-loved shopping session I am reminded why I love fashion so much - for me it is not about trends but the love of fabric, the creation, the history, the hunt. I had luck on my side last week when I decided to fit in a quick bit of op-shopping before heading away for the weekend. I was surprised to stumble upon some gorgeous high street and designer pieces which have fit into my wardrobe like they were always meant to belong there.
The first one is this Cue linen dress. It is a size too big but that is why I love it; the fit is relaxed, the fabric is high quality and the strap detail is beautiful. I steer away from being too pretty and usually toughen up a dress with boots and with the recent cooler weather, I am styling it with my favourite leather jacket.
