Top c/o Glassworks, Vintage skirt from my mother's closet, Jo Mercer heels
Aloha! Pineapples and pencil skirts are two things I didn't quite expect to go together. This tropical printed top from Glassworks reminds me of op shop finds and suddenly I find myself wishing that I were back in the seaside town of Brighton, UK circa July '12 scouring through racks of wondrous vintage goodies. We had previously met this yellow pencil skirt in a one of my favourite shoots of all time and love the fact that despite its conservative pencil shape, it practically screams for attention and I could not at all imagine it worn in a workplace situation. Except perhaps back in the 80s. Pretty sure my mother had worn this to a wedding.. imagine that!
