U.P and the Purple Crayon

Vintage velvet collar and granny boots from eBay, suede belt from Etsy, purple knee highs donated by mom.

broad round collar, belted tunic and heraldic-checker-patterned socks make you look delightfully medieval.

In agreement with @ettagirl as usual, you look like a mischievous court jester with that bordeaux sparkle in your eye.

It was with growing interest that I read all the comments of Britwatch and the others. I personally feel that the UP team has created this platform for our opinions and yes, we are free to use it responsibly. But really, this is not the place for personal attacks...let's use it for the purpose it was attended for: comments (either positive or negative) about the oufit of the day or the project in general. Even negative comments can inspire one to try harder: it is all in the WAY you say it! Let this be a challenge for all of us in the new year...no matter where we are in with whom we converse! By the way, I like today's outfit...demure, and not over the top.


@Linda from Sardinia, you rock!

You lookin gorgeous everyday, whatever you wear, it's getting on my nerves..easy for you..I tried to wear a black dress with jumper underneath and fake egg around my neck I couldn't breathe.. and looked like a sausage unevenly stuffed; the most stuffed part being the middle part. I suggest every day you manage to look this gorgeous you write an apology to all the fat and ugly people out there; thank ye.

you look kinda midcenturian! I would add purple apple on your head with a purple arrow in it. nice outfit still unfinished - with a space for fantasy. PS.Great pleasure to look at all what's done!

I spy with my little eye, a celebration and re-invention of late October accessories! Check socks - Dec 26th and Oct 30th. Velvet collar - Dec 26th and Oct 29th. Vintage brooch - Dec 25th and Oct 29th. Crinoline petticoat - Dec 25th and Oct 29th. Metallic tights - Dec 25th and Oct 30th. Was this intentional? You have a super duper combination today! Just enough repetition to make me smile.
