Back to Black

My love for Amy Winehouse is no secret. Her albums are amongst my favourites of all time and I’ve always counted her as one of my icons- not just for her music, but her attitude, too. She was sassy and charismatic, and although she made some questionable sartorial choices at times, she made an undeniable impression on the fashion industry.

Thanks to eBay, I was able to get my mitts on a skirt from one of the original Amy Winehouse Fred Perry collections (BNWT, too!). It’s a great quality piece and houndstooth is one of my favourite patterns – classic and timeless.

As far as I’m concerned, you can never go wrong with a monochrome ensemble and a slick of red lipstick. All that’s missing is the beehive!

    Amy Winehouse is an icon of mine too! I remember when her collab with Fred Perry came out and I lusted over literally everything. This skirt is dreamy and you look awesome in it!

    From the moment I saw this outfit, I absolutely loved everything about it! It is so darn classy, I can’t even explain it! You look gorgeous! Houndstooth is definitely one of my favorite prints too. What a great find. Amy is greatly missed but she made such an impact in the world. xx

      Thank you so much Victoria! :) and yes she really did, she lives on through her wonderful music. I still wonder what music she would be making if she were still here today. xx

    Such a timeless outfit! I like how you paired it with a bright lipstick. Right now I’m living for houndstooth, plaid and gingham.
