(Hat: ASOS, Jumper: COS, Sunglasses: C/O Quay, Skirt: Topshop, Shoes: Topshop)

When I'm feeling a little less than lazy, and jeans are off the day's style menu- my go-to has to be a statement printed skirt and basic knit (hat optional, but preferable), and after spotting this one tucked away in Topshop's Oxford Street store, I picked it up, skipped to the check-out and never looked back. Perhaps it's my habit of coordinating make up/headwear/outfit, but this skirt makes lazy dressing hugely easy and goes with pretty much everything, whilst having a cool modern-seventies twist, never a bad thing!

Topshop Tapestry Skirt Seventies Inspired Outfit Topshop Tapestry Skirt Seventies Inspired Outfit Topshop Tapestry Skirt Seventies Inspired Outfit Also! As you may have also spotted on my sidebar and more music based posts, I've been doing a little bit of reviewing for O2 and the Academies- venues I've become pretty well aquainted with over the years (after the Astoria, some of my first gigs were at 02 Brixton Academy). I was lucky enough to pay a visit to one of the plush new dressing rooms at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire (see some awesome behind the scenes here) and get to meet some of the people behind it, including awesome graphic designer and illustrator Alex Fowkes and make up artist to the stars (read: Grace Jones and Florence Welch) Cher Webb who even tried her hand at this pale face (if only she could do my make up every day)! I also got to learn a little more about the venue and it's history, before taking to the stage to a crowd of um, Kristabel, Zoe and Law- not bad for a first performance ; )

  43. I had my eye on that skirt in Topshop for a while now, I love how you've styled it up - looks wonderful and oh so 70s (in a totally good way). I'm pretty sure your blog should come with warnings, my poor bank balance always suffers after I've visited!

  54. Hey Olivia, you probably already know but I've seen a few sellers use your images:

    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Women-s-Vintage-Fashion-Pleated-Mini-Skirts-Chiffon-Waist-Short-Skirts-SV000266/1695997601.html

    Hope they aren't doing it without your permission! That would be poopy.

    1. Thanks lovely! It's certainly a lot tighter than other skirts I have in Topshop (especially since it isn't lined)- but yes, it's VERY cosy on me too- so don't worry!
