Granny Chic

 Blazer // Dress // Bag - Annie and the Mannequins
Boots - Zara

Outfit wise, January is a bit of an awkward month. We spend time picking out our outfits in the morning then the winter jacket goes on and were back to feeling like a walking talking jacket. Anyone feel the same?

 So were ditching our cosy oversized duck feather winter warmer full time and opting for the classic looking blazer and faux fur collar combo. Its always a winner. 

We've teamed our cutesy floral and check baby doll dress with our navy gold button blazer, faux fur collar and finished it off with a gorgeous granny chic hold all bag. If you don't have a faux fur collar what about a cream chunky knit scarf. 

Happy Monday

Hello January...

 Cream Cashmere Blazer // Wine Velvet Dress // Brown Boots : Annie and the Mannequins
Faux Fur: Vintage

Wow any one else think that was a really quick Christmas and New Year? The festive season has been and gone, our Christmas decorations are back up the loft and normal working hours have kicked in.  We have  been working on our website and ASOS boutique throughout the holidays, but today is the first day back to 9-6 in the office. Although it never really is 9-6 for us...there will always be late nights, early morning and working at the weekend but today is our first strict early morning rise. Even though I peeled myself out of bed I now feel quite fresh and ready for another good year for Annie and the Mannequins :) yay!!

So this year we plan on posting more on our blog. Lots more outfits inspirations for all you vintage loving beauties out there. We'll be continuing to mix high street and vintage clothing from our ASOS boutique and on-line store to create some super wearable outfits for both day and night. 

This outfit we've put together is perfect for your January blues. We've layered our rich cashmere and wool mix gold button blazer over this luxe velvet button dress and teamed it with our vintage faux fur collar and brown leather booties. Perfect for keeping cosy and on trend.  

Hope you all don't feel to 'bluesy' now we are all back to work. Have a peek at our ASOS boutique for some more outfit inspiration.

Totally Beaded Maxi

Totally Beaded Maxi Dress - Annie and the Mannequins
Leather Crop - Topshop
Faux Fur Collar - Annie and the Mannequins
Necklace - Primark

Have you ever wondered what kind of jacket to wear with a full length party gown? Well we have styled up our vintage totally beaded maxi dress with a crop leather jacket and added a cutesy faux fur collar. Normally when planning our party outfits we would always opt for a classic vintage faux fur. However on this occasion we think the length of the jacket is perfect for a full length dress, its doesn't take away from the look of the dress and the faux fur is just the right amount of fur :)

We have added lots of new vintage party perfect pieces to our ASOS page, including this amazing totally beaded maxi. Have a peek HERE :)

Love The Annies xoxo
