BLACK AND WHITE




Hi everyone
If you hate the gaping shirt syndrome, look no further! I have just discovered the Marks and Spencer No Peep Shirt. I had been meaning to buy a decent white shirt for a while, and the fact that this has a special way of fastening so there is no gaping at the chest area "genius"



I am so impressed by this fastening idea, and don't know why other brands are not catching up with this idea! If you know of any other brands with shirts with this type of fastening, please let me know! You can find the shirt HERE at a bargain price of £35.00




I chose to wear the shirt with this pleather black skirt, and a black jewelled necklace at the neckline. I did also want to picture my forever friend fluffy black cardigan, but I just got too hot! In December!


Well it was worn very briefly at the beginning of the shoot, And it soon got deposited into the handbag. That's what I love about this cardigan. I have had this one for many years, around twelve I think. I bought it from a brand called Offshoot, Do any of you remember this brand?
It's a gem of an item to wear in the evenings or shopping when it's cold, it can be scrunched up and put in your bag, no creasing and it's really warm. It has been a big favourite of mine....
Have any of you been wearing something year after year that you wont part with? Do share!

XO Laurie

  2. Classic pairing, great faux leather skirt. Not the same fastening, but my Ann Taylor white shirt with the jewels had the no gaping factor.

  4. Isn't the "too hot in December" thing making you crazy? While I don't like to be freezing it would be nice to be able to comfortably wear my sweaters..lol! It is absolutely genius to put a fastener in the gap spot on a shirt. I always have to use two sided tape because every single blouse I own gapes open. You look gorgeous and so pulled together!

  7. Love the no peep fastening, excellent idea! I am not especially large busted, but all my button up shirts that fit in the shoulders alwasy gap in the front - that's the reason I rarely wear them. Great look too, such a classic!
