Spin The Pin - October '15

This months Spin the Pin challenge has definitely been the most challenging so far! The PIN is from A Dapper Chick's blog. Featuring...well..just that! A very dapper looking chick. 


Jo from iCurvy encouraged more of putting a SPIN on this Dapper chicks outfit rather than recreating it saying:
"Maybe it's statement socks, or the brilliant turquoise colour of the blazer, maybe you'll take inspiration from Men's wear for women - or add some tailoring to your outfit, maybe it's the bright pops of colour, or the flower button hole... The challenge is not to recreate the outfit - but let it inspire you and SPIN it your own way".


Well I struggled. First I started with my turquoise cardi which I really ought to get rid of cause it is clearly too small for me but I just love it too much! I thought I could wear it with a white shirt underneath; the shirt collar adding a little hint of menswear and the turquoise cardi to go with it. These two worked well together but I couldn't, for the life of me, find anything I liked to wear with it on the bottom half.


First I tried a mix with pink. 
I actually didn't mind this combination too much! However I did not like the shoes with the rest of the outfit. I'm quite a matchy matchy person and the denim colour blue of the wedges just didn't sit right with me.


Then denim. Blue and blue go right? 
After the colour of shoes not matching with the previous outfit, I decided to try a denim skirt. I'm not sure if it's the shape of the skirt or not but this didn't sit right with me either.

Yes, I can be quite picky with my outfits. It needs to feel right to me. Whatever "right" is...


Eventually I decided to wear something all together different.
I decided to take the Blazer part of the PIN and use that. This is the only blazer I own and I'm about to put it up for sale because it's a tad too small. Until now I hadn't worn it at all so I thought I may aswell give it a run before I sell it off...
I'm nice to my clothes like that!
