Mummab - Third Style Stea!

Hi there....
Monday morning and the third Monday in September can only mean one thing - my style steal.

This style steal has a slight twist on it, in as much as the colours are the same, but the outfit is different!
When I saw this mix up I just knew this was going to be a challenge!  It's time to step up to the mark. Let's hope I succeed!

Who doesn't think that black, hot cerise pink and leopard print are a match made in heaven?  Best buddies forever?  Yes I know I'm not alone so had to make this steal work.

Who's style have I chosen for September? Read on to find out who ......




When I saw Emma from The Style Splash wearing this striking outfit I knew it was one for me to try and copy. 
I had seen these classy Culottes c/o M & S when searching through their Sale rail, but they evaded my thoughts, & I passed them buy - silly me, so spotting Emma wearing them and looking so vibrant and bold in one of my favourite colours I felt quite miffed to say the least -  the saying 'you snooze you lose' came to mind!!!


Congratulating myself when I purchased this bright and lively cerise dress, which just so happened to be care of M & S sale rail some weeks later!
The A line shape works well for the Autumn, as does the bell sleeves - a personal favourite of mine.  I also fancied the tie detail on the back of the neck, I've left this to hang, although I could have tied in a bow as I wore my hair in a bun when we took the photos.
These black boots have been in my collection since just before last Christmas when I saw them in
TK Maxx and bought them with haste, boots like these don't stay in that store too long!   I do struggle with shoes and sandals, spending various amounts of money and still some hurt my feet!  But these are fine for me. Check out when I last wore these black boots with tights and knitted dress from Roman Originals.
This cute clutch is the token gesture of leopard print,  not quite as bold as Emma's but I think fits nicely into my outfit. 






I do have to own up to the fact that this is slightly tight on the arms, I had planned to return the dress because of this, but hadn't realised no refund or exchange is offered on 'final clearance sale' items, so the dress came home with me!  Slightly annoyed that I hadn't checked this - will do so next time!



I hope you managed to catch sight of my previous 'copies' but you can check them out right here July and August.

Many thanks once again to Esther Ruby for taking such super photos - you're a star!

Hope you'll stop by on Thursday, but until then it's been fabulous as usual. X

  9. What a great idea this is for a feature Jacqui! I would never have considered this colour and print combination, but now that I've seen it, I love it too. The dress looks like it fits you really well, despite your comments otherwise. I wonder if it made the grade for a trip to Venice...
