Inspiration Monday(s) : Jessica Timberlake and Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Monday, December 17, 2012

I've said this before, but I'll say it again, I love Inspiration Monday for making me mix items and wear outfits that I wouldn't normally think of putting together.

I'm a little rather late on posting this first inspiration. I find it so much harder to take outfit shots when it's dark in the mornings and when I return home from work. Shots taken inside just don't seem to work so well. So, when I do manage to take some shots, albeit not very good ones, I like to use them.

This bag is a recent charity shop purchase. It's leather and soft as butter, originally from White Stuff and cost me the grand sum of £4. It does have a few marks on the bottom so I decided to contact a leather cleaning company that I've seen in the back of magazines, they offer a handbag repair and restore service. They quoted me £200. Yikes! Needless to say that I declined, the marks won't stop me using the bag, and hey, I could always try and remove the marks myself. Any tips?

Last week's inspiration was a cinch for me, I knew as soon as I saw it that I could replicate it pretty well (I'm so glad I didn't throw away this top, despite it's twisted seams).

I am wearing an outfit inspired by this week's celeb, Leona Lewis, today but I'm not going to get a chance to take any shots today... shame. I'm wearing my latest pre loved eBay purchase, I'm chuffed to bits with it. Photos to come soon hopefully!

And to finish, an apology to Megan and Nora for not putting a link into my headless Inspiration Monday post. Bad blogger. Bad. Sorry x

  1. Wow, you matched both inspiration pics perfectly! Great job. I'd be curious to know about removing marks from leather, too, so hopefully someone knowledgeable about stuff like that replies.

  2. Love both your outfits. I need me some tan boots for sure, especially with the ammount of Breton tops I wear!

  3. You are so good at this!!! Wow, really good interpretations, love the first one especially, but you do wear a stripy top well!

    that bag you got sounds fabulous, i always tell myself that i would have scuffed up the leather anyway...

  6. you are not a bad blogger...i think these outfits alone show how great you are. you are spot on with both of them! i love that black blazer on you!
