Playing dress up with Mad Dress Game

So today's post is doubly special: I am bringing you all another of my guest posts but this is also part of this weeks FBFF (Fashion, Beauty, Friend Friday) post. For this weeks FBFF post we had to swap posts with another FBFF blogger. So I paired up with the wonderful Frances Joy of Mad Dress Game. We decided to use my 'Playing Dress Up' theme for our posts so you can find my outfit for Frances over on her blog today, and she made a stunning outfit for me too. So over to Frances.
Hello all! This is Frances Joy from Mad Dress Game. For this week's Friend Friday, we've arranged for some guest posts. For today's post, my job was to style an outfit for Chantele. This is a big job, and I hope I did well.
When I think of Chantele's style, I think romantic with a touch of rockstar. I don't know if that's what she's going for, but it's what I'm picking up. And since she's a girl after my own heart when it comes to seeking out bargains, I searched out the cutest bargain pieces I could find.
I started out with a basic, full black skirt and used a violet cloche as my inspiration point. Seriously, she wears hats so well! I tried to remember to add layers to make this appropriate for the season - I love the houndstooth tights peeking out from under that skirt. A ladylike cardigan, some tough booties, and some quirky jewelry finished off the look. Also, how cute is that owl bracelet? It's a little unexpected and so much fun. The beaded bag adds some color and texture and adds a little pizzazz to the outfit. I like to think that this is a look worthy of a night on the town just because of that lovely clutch.

I hope you like this Daisy Dayz inspired look!

So what do you ladies think of Frances Joy's outfit for me? And my outfit for her? (go check it out too!!) I love this outfit. I adore cloche hats and this purple one is perfect for me as purple is my fav colour! The shoes match so well too. The tights are so cute and I love the simple elegance of the clothing. This outfit would be great for me to go for a casual meeting over coffee. I love that Frances thinks that my style is romantic rockstar, I kinda like that idea and think she is probably right. I do like to wear feminine romantic clothes but then add edgier accessories (Im a rebel at heart, I'm sure)
Thanks Frances for this outfit and don't forget to visit her blog too
