An 80s Moment

IMG_4047 copyI was going to call this post ‘look up’ because apparently I couldn’t do that in the time these photos were being taken. It was a little awkward as I was in a new setting with a new ‘photographer’ and it was very public (plus the camera was not playing ball so we were shooting for what felt like forever just to get a couple of vaguely clear shots) so forgive the bizarre pictures but I really wanted to share them as they’re the only ones I have of this jumper. There’s a bit of a story behind it, I saw it on Fleur De Force (as I’m sure many people did because it’s now impossible to find) and then spent days tracking it down in my size. When my regular store got one in I thought would fit I drove on the motorway for the first time in more that 4 years (scary sh*t) to go and get it before someone else snapped it up. It’s not available online and I’m not sure if that’s because it was and sold out or it is yet to be listed (fingers crossed) but if it does come up at any point I will post a link! It was expensive at £48 but one of those things I knew I’d always regret not buying if I didn’t track it down and something I’ve had SO many compliments on already. The perfect Christmas party jumper, even if i do feel a little bit like Melanie Griffiths in the 80s while wearing it.

    It’s such a gorgeous jumper – and looks stunning on you. The longer length looks good too – now I just wish I had one!

    This is such a cute outfit! 🙂 I saw that sweater on Fleur’s Topshop haul and I feel like I need to track it down as well! The embroidered selves make it the perfect going out sweater xoxo

    Gorgeous jumper but the price is a little too steep for me. Love the effect the camera seems to have in these photos. It almost looks like everyone in the background is sped up and you are just stood still super in focus. Not sure if that makes sense but the pics look really good 🙂
