A new image?

Blouse - ASOS, skirt - ASOS, belt - Primark, bag - Primark, 
shoes - NW3 by Hobbs, bracelet - gift, nail polish - Barry M "Berry Ice Cream"

This outfit got a lot of attention when I wore it this week. I didn't think the skirt and blouse, new purchases from ASOS, were a huge departure from my usual style. But one colleague suggested I had "changed my image" and gone all Joan Holloway. I've always been a fan of Joan, so I was pleased. Another colleague redressed the balance when he said the outfit made me look like "a young Margaret Thatcher". It's hard not to feel slightly insulted by this, but this particular colleague is a big fan of the Iron Lady, so I tried to take it as a compliment.
