Accessorising With RetroChicMama

With guest season well and truly upon us, we asked Michelle aka the utterly gorgeous RetroChicMama to style a party frock up and then down for a more relaxed look, because as she says, after the wedding you want to be able to wear the dress again and again don’t you?
If you had to list 3 must have items in your wardrobe what would they be?
A great fitting plain white shirt. Most flattering cut of high quality jeans, mine are J Brand. A neutral cashmere cardigan.

Can you remember your first item of clothing that made you feel like a grown up? What was it?

This is easy – I had a little weekend job in a hairdressing salon when I was 13 that paid $15 a week. I save up for months to buy a pair of white strappy sandals. It was my first ever fashion purchase with my own money so when I wore hem I felt grown up because I paid with money I’d earned.

Do you have any major style faux pas?
Obviously I had many MAJOR style faux pas, I was night clubbing in the late 80’s!!! Let’s see there were the Madonna fingerless black lace gloves, Frankie says relax fluoro over-sized T-shirt paired with the ubiquitous Tube skirt outfit – Need I say more?
Is there an piece of clothing you’ve always wanted to own? Why?
I’ve always wanted to own a Chanel Le Boy bag because I love bags & to me this is the Holy Grail of bags.
Would you say you are a shoes or bag girl?
Hahaha see above! Bags of course although shoes are a very close second, in fact I’m currently having a book case fitted in my new loft bedroom to display my shoes. Poor hubby.
Do you have an all time favourite style purchase?
To date my all time fave purchase is most definitely my Chanel 2.55 mini – However as it’s my big 50 next year I’m hoping the bag fairy will send me that Le Boy I dream of…
