I have always been quite vociferous about my love for certain brands and in particular I do so adore the Quiksilver Women's line. I've posted about it so many times before I'm sure you're tired of hearing about them but as I used to work for Quiksilver I always used to wear the brand as uniform and I loved the way they managed to juxtapose a casual, surfy-hobo lifestyle ethic with high fashion and directional pieces made in sumptuous fabrics. The price point is quite high end but their market is quite niche, I don't know if it just doesn't appeal to very many people but they seem to be quite a small fish in fashion's pond at the moment, even though the brand is probably about 3 years old now. The upshot of this is that I was able to snag this 'Erin' blouse (100% silk) from eBay for just 99p. It's an off cream with tiny grey polka dots, a button bib front and turn back sleeves. Despite my best efforts it is creasing like a mofo but a daily iron is a small price to pay. I was on the lookout for a blouse like this one to replace two others that I had from the Quiksilver Women's line, a cotton flutter sleeve one and a cream silk one, both of which I wore so much they literally fell apart. This one will do nicely and as it's silk it will be a nice transitional piece for AW because silk is so warming, I am looking for the perfect leather jacket to pop over it because I love the contrast of fabrics and colours.

This whole outfit is a bit of a cheapo-how lovely are these high waisted skinnies? By a brand I've never heard of before (now defunct?) called Freego, they were £1.99 in the local Banardo's. I never buy denim because I can never get a pair to fit perfectly, but hola, I've found them in these. The jumper I am wearing around my shoulders was another thrifted birthday bargain, merino wool by Gant, costing me £3 instead of the usual £120 price point, so you can imagine I was chuffed to find it.

Finally the newest addition to my AW wardrobe comes in the form of these glorious boots by Minelli at Spartoo-aren't they dreamy?!
Have a lovely day

Lovely outfit, your jeans are perfect - I always think of quiksilver as a brand that just does hoodies so I'm going to have to look into it more as everything you've shown on your blog has been gorgeous xx

What a stunning and bargainacious outfit, my dear! Jon's always loved Quiksilver and some of the tees he bought in Bali in 1999 are still looking as food as they did in the last century.
That blouse is a beauty. xxx
