What's this? Oh nothing...
Just my new cardigan from none other than ALANNAH HILL!!
Cardigan: Alannah Hill (squeal!)
Blouse: Forever New
Skirt: Op shop in Surry Hills
Black Flats: Kmart
I've always been a big fan of the designs and clothing of Alannah Hill, and last week with the combination of a $50 David Jones voucher I received for Christmas and a half off sale, I managed to buy my very first piece of Alannah Hill clothing for the low price of $30.
There's something about this cardigan that makes me think of desserts. Mint green, with little black and white lining, and the buttons could almost be like the decorations you get on cakes. One of my favourite things it is the adorable little velvet bow on the lapel:
I decided to match the little velvet bow with one of my own:
I bought this hair clip at the Vintage Fair in Canterbury last year, it was on a table full of 'broken' items being sold on the cheap. One of the teeth is broken but it still sits nicely in my hair, and who doesn't love a bit of floral print?
All in all I was delighted to put an outfit around my new cardigan and wear it around on the weekend, I'm very impressed with the quality of the cardigan and would definitely buy more Alannah Hill if I could afford it.
What sort of 'designer' pieces do you have your eye on? Is there that one designer you've always wanted to own something from? (I'd have to go with Wheels and Dollbaby! One day...)
