Ostrich in Brighton

Ostrich-Grey-Gilet Ellie-Grey-Ostrich-2 Gucci-Vintage-Bag Is it a bird? Is it an elephant? Nope it is just me dressed as an Ostrich in Brighton!

If only I had the legs of an Ostrich as well as the speed I might not miss trains so often. Darrr-ling this outfit made me feel like I was an extra out of Made in Chelsea Season 2 you know when Millie Mackintosh was it in & they dressed like real sloany’s rather than edgy Shoreditch folk like they do now.

I naively bought this gilet with the intention of wearing it for ‘apres ski’ in Chamonix, forgetting the minor detail of the temperate being in the minus and this being the furthest thing from warm! However I had to ditch this last minute because I came to the sudden realisation that wearing this with any form of jumper underneath made me look like I was 8 months pregnant with triplets due to its extremely box like shape. I saw something similar to this sold in Topshop for about £70 but I just bought this on ebay for £18 hooray, and it comes in a variety of colours! Personally I can only wear this with thin tops underneath due to my already broad shoulders & short torso body making me look extremely square at the best of times but if you were the body shape of a Kendall Jenner this would look amazing with a chunky grey roll neck underneath.

 Yay or Nay to dressing like an Ostrich?

  1. We have a similar body type and I feel like I can never get away with fur vests/coats but you actually look amazing in this, the big hat and skinny jeans go perfect! You make me feel like there might be hope for me! XO -Kim

  3. Oh my I love the color combination on your look. I'm in love with fur vest seen on few bloggers and you, but there's no way I can wear it here in Bangkok where the temp is 38 degrees Celsius on the average lol.

    Looking great!

  6. Comple tell live this outfit, you have great style! I came across your blog via an old post while looking for ideas to style my Mulberry Lily and I love how you put things together. Plus I had to laugh when you referenced the old school Made in Chelsea - I own a mauve ostrich gilet and it is entirely Millie M's fault! I still dress like a season one MIC-er - all those shirts with statement necklaces over the button up collars as well! X
