Fashion Friday: A vintage monochrome dress perfect for the office

I love autumn and winter for fashion. I love wrapping up warm, wearing hats and long boots although I hate the rain and snow (as it tends to ruin my boots!). This week I have been embracing this, and enjoyed getting my monochrome on. It is quite a smart look, perfect for bringing a bit of vintage to the office

I wore this silky feel dog tooth dress which I bought from a jumble sale years ago. It has a great collar and front zip.

It is too big for me and A line in shape so I always wear it with a belt or with a tight knit over the top. This time I wore a leather obi belt bought from Miss Selfridge about 12 years ago.

I’m wearing Clarks shoes which have a slight 40s feel to them. They are quite high for me so I don’t wear them very often, preferring clogs!

I’ve added bright pink to the look to add some colour. My coat is from F&F and matches a dress I also have. I bought this when I worked in an office for a smart look. My bangles are 1960s and bought recently from a London antique market.

My handbag is vintage and unnamed. It belonged to my Great Aunt.
