Orange Crystal Barrette: French Pleat.

I recently was lucky enough to win a beautiful hamper of hair goodies from Stonebridge Hair, for completing the 100 Pleats in 100 days challenge. One of the items that I just couldn’t wait to try out was this beautiful barrette studded with clementine-coloured crystals.

My initial thought was: “that is so pretty! But what is going to go with orange crystals?!” 

The answer was easy, as I saw when I put on my cognac coloured boots from Clarks, the barrette crystals tone in nicely with the exact shade of brown leather that I favour for boots and bags. Paired with a deep green Phase 8 dress and cognac coloured opaque tights, I thought it worked pretty well. 

I’ve been out on the town thrice now recently wearing this exact ensemble:


I’m afraid that this particular barrette is now sold out, but there are plenty of other pretty barrettes to choose from here.


Dr Experimentsinstyle goes clothes shopping

There’s no getting round it – a white lab coat is not the most flattering of garments. Dr Experimentsinstyle fancies a update. So, I suggested he take a look at Kettlewell colours website. Although they only (currently) cater for female humans. (Not males or bears) I suggested that Dr Experimentsinstyle has his colours “done” , then he will be able to shop Kettlewell knowing his most flattering colours. This merino poncho would certainly be very welcome under my Christmas tree this year, for sure:
