FOUR WAYS TO WEAR; The Floral Slip Dress


When we were snapping away capturing this weeks ASOS collection we got hooked on this navy floral slip dress and naturally styled it four ways. Now we are thinking about adding a new feature to our blog; the Four Ways to Wear post. What do yous think?

At Annie and the Mannequins vintage is all out being individual and taking that time in the morning to style up your vintage pieces to create wearable and on trend vintage outfits. Here we show you how a vintage piece can be easily styled four different ways and how you can style for less with staple vintage items.

1. Go cosy and cute with one of this seasons key pieces; the power knit
2. add a velvet blazer and chunky waist belt for a toned down take on the new victorian trend 
3. show a bit leg and add a beaded collar for a glitzy glamazon look; a perfect desk to dinner outfit
4. For some easy chic layer over a long sleeve frill blouse

Which one is your favourite? We would love to hear from you.

Love as always, The Annies xoxo

The Power Knit

Burgundy power knit // Gold studded collar blouse // Leather satchel & faux fur piece// Leather riding boots All Above - Annie and the Mannequins
Denim cut offs - Topshop

Hello girlies. We're back from our two week wonder round Las Vegas and Mexico. It really was a holiday of a lifetime and totally worth the many months of saving i.e many months of staying in and being tight with our pennies. For the first few days being back felt a bit strange,  like we was dreaming we we're home but its a new week and we feel heaps excited to be back on Annie and the Mannequins soil. Plus going away then coming back to autumn weather meant we were able to get excited -all over again- about our autumn winter wardrobes.

This week we are totally in love with the micro trend; Power Knits. We are loving statement knits in chunky fabrics, rich colours and all kinds patterns. The power knit is a chic easy way to instantly update your wardrobe ready for the cooler days. We're already feeling the crisp. Brrr. Thats why we instantly fell in love with this burgundy chunky number.

Here we have layered our knit over a gold studded collar blouse and teamed it with simple denim cut offs, high denier black tights and leather ankle riding boots to create a super wearable totally chic outfit. Doesn't it look so easy to wear yet super styled at the same time? We just love its easy chic. What do you all think?

Now we are home were hoping to get lots more outfit posts up and we have some exciting new A/W stock we are desperado to share. Our ASOS boutique will be revamped in no time so keep your peepers on the look out. Hope you all have had a fabulous two weeks in our absense.

Speak soon, Love The Annies xoxo
