What's new pussycat?

Shirt - Zara, Skirt - All Saints, Cardi - H&M, Shoes - Dune

Day one of my 'look more exciting at work' plan was Monday, and I think I did alright! The shirt is from Zara and my mum bought it for me a few months ago - it's just lovely. I didn't used to think I cound get away with pussybow necklines as I have quite a short neck and they often tend to overwhelm me and look a bit frumpy. I'm totally converted though!

The red looks really nice on you- you should get some more of the colour in your wardrobe.

LOVE the blouse and entire outfit, very chic! I definitely need to embrace some serious smarter items into my work wardrobe; as being able to wear converse to work means I do, way too regularly!

I love pussy bow tops!! I thought they wouldn't suit me either, but I need to try one now though. I think they are a fabulous piece, and the colour of your one is great.

Samantha said...

Just popping in to let you know this outfit and you look gorgeous. The pussy bow definitely does not make your neck look shorter! (Maybe it's because it works with the hair length, too?) It makes you look coy and secretarial.

Gorgeous blouse, Harriet! It's such a lovely color and it's so ladylike and sophisticated.

Harriet ,you look so great!!! I have been eyeing some pussybow necklines shirts on Asos, and I wasn't sure , cuz I always feel silly having frills and all but it looks great! I think I'll be getting mine soon.. I can always return it, no? (haha, yea that's likely.. :P )

WeShop said...

Stunning blouse! The colour and style are perfect. You look brilliant. xx

Susie said...

I love this outfit so much! Red is my favorite color and most of the blouses I've seen in those colors are more muted shades. It's so nice to see a vibrant pop of color during these dark cold days!

So nice meeting you yesterday! Looking forward to seeing you future events too! xx

beingdena said...

hun you look smashing! I got the same top from Zara but in black. I always feel so elegant in it.Love the red one even more though.

Elle Enchanted said...

that shirt is LOVELY. you look stunning

Reda said...

What an amazing Red! Well, the shortened neck is perhaps diminished by thr ends of the bow hanging straight down so you actually produce a lengthening and thus flattering illusion overall... maybe?

More importantly, you look amazing. Big exciting work outfit style points xx

Helen said...

gorgeous! very sophisticated.

This outfit is really cute on you! I have always found it challenging to look cute at work in the winter when it's so cold, and you just want to be warm and comfortable. Just found your blog through Niotillfem, and immediately followed :) I love London (lived there briefly years ago and go back to visit whenever I can). Look forward to reading your blog!

Sarah said...

Ooooh I LOVE this. I'm not sure if I'm too busty for pussybow necklines but I want to experiment, they're gorgeous!

Mat said...
