WHAT I WORE - THE WITCHING HOUR

Mondays are not my favourite day, by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I have 100% fallen out with Monday, and this Monday in particular. Mainly because it was a mixture of leg and abs day at the gym and I'm tired, but perhaps less said on the matter is best.

I love this outfit, I felt so gothic and witch-y that I wish I'd had it in time for Halloween, unfortunately however I only ordered the jumper the week I went to London. I have been thinking of doing the Drop Dead lucky dip for months, and then subsequently forgetting each month when getting paid and spending all my money in Topshop instead, so when I found myself browsing their newest collection at the start of the month I figured I'd be brave and take the plunge. Opting for outerwear as I knew I loved 90% of their jumpers and hoodies, I rather nervously pressed purchase and waited for several days with bated breath before the parcel arrived, and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised.

The quality of Drop Dead's items is always absolutely top notch, and this occasion was no different. The jumper is SO soft it's actually delightful to wear, and although it's quite thin and therefore not the warmest garment out there, it does look really fab for winter. I should also mention the absolute dream that is Drop Dead's pipsqueak sizing, making life easier for us tiny people out there. Their pipsqueak sizes are essentially petite sizing, but they give a much clearer indication of fit than regular petite sizing (or so I have found). I am usually a size 4 on the top, so ordering the pipsqueak medium gave me this fabulous loose fit. Teaming it with my favourite River Island bodycon skirt and my new Topshop shoes took it from a really casual knit to something that I could wear out for a meal or drinks in the evening. The addition of the hat was an afterthought on my part but one that I believe has worked well, giving it the slightly gothy vibe that I love.

How would you have styled this jumper?

  1. I really like your jumper! The material looks really nice and I love the looser fit :) I also had no idea that Drop Dead made smaller sizes... it sounds like we we're a similar size so I'm definitely going to have to have a trawl through the website now!

    1. Thank you babe! It's such soft material I was really shocked by how lovely it is! I think the smaller sizes are a new thing that they're doing, and they're so good! It's nice to know that the petite sizing is actually really petite rather than the universal 'small' which is so vague! xo

  2. Totally love your oversized hat! I have one similar at home. I find it is a great accenting piece in a fall outfit.

    1. Thank you babe! The lucky dip is so affordable, this jumper was only £15 + postage, but they do t-shirts and jackets as well at different prices so it's much more affordable than the regular ranges. And as you never know what you're going to end up with it can literally be something from their current stock or something really rare which is cool :) xo
