Meet me at the mannequin gallery!

H&M Bowler Hat / Next Blazer / H&M Shirt / New Look Necklace / Vintage Belt / Jane Norman Shorts / Matalan Bag / New Look Socks / Primark Wedges.

I seem to have become progressively dependent on my Bowler hat. Realising that I wear this bowler beaut more than I do any other hats in my possession, it is definitely the most versatile one! Well, it doesn't exactly change shape, form or colour; it looks exactly the same every time you wear it but you can pretty much pair it up with anything. I've always been one to break those arbitrary obligations, with a taste of leaving a brave, unconventional first impression; you can never wear a bowler hat too much.

Today was my first day working at Internacionale as their Visual Merchandiser. I worked a 9 hour shift hence the late blog post but I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed styling the mannequins. I was really pleased to hear that one of the mannequins I styled on Thursday; the one that wore the dungarees was a customer favourite and all the dungarees are now sold out! Anyway, my look today was rather casual and simplistic with a hint of playful. There will never be a day where I will be caught not donning prints or colours; in this case I went for polkadots. This look is 60s inspired, rocking one of the biggest fashion faux pas ever, "socks with sandals". I finished off this look by adding this beautiful Next Blazer and a vintage belt to match with the shoes; most definitely one of my favourite looks! I've had a really good but long day so a lazy night is in order as I'm working again tomorrow.

Hope you guys have had a lovely day!
