Maxi Skirt - Three Ways To Wear

Good Morning Darlings,

I am writing to you from Salt Lake City, Utah, where I am in rehearsals for The Last Ship at Pioneer Theatre. It's the musical written by my fellow countryman Sting (who is rumoured to be flying in for opening night - if I suddenly start wearing a lot of Dior and going on about tantric sex, you'll know what's happened....;)

On the blog today however, I am sharing some looks that I shot in my Mum's back garden in sunny England! She bought this blue maxi skirt from H&M for me (it was on sale of course) and here it is styled up three different ways. Enjoy!

#1 Oh I do love to mix up some prints. Here it is with a floral "body" (remember them?) and some leopard-print boots.

#2 Another body (I'm telling you, they're making a come back), this time kept simple in black. Add some nude heels to look elegant AF.

Note the stickers on the bottom of my shoes - classy

#3 For a more "I've just been on holiday in Bali and I'm all enlightened" vibe, throw over a printed coat. Add Louboutins on your feet, so that people know you haven't completely turned your back on the capitalist system ;) Fashion is all about balance.

More soon, coming at you from Utah!

 

A Leopard Never Changes Her Spots

 

Hello Darlings,

It's 2016 and, as you can tell, the blog has moved to this snappy new address. So has Ruthie Darling herself in fact. I am now residing in Bushwick, Brooklyn, home to artisanal coffees, organic sushi and people who are waaaaay cooler than me. I'm hanging out here until they realise I'm an imposter and throw me out. Until then please enjoy the new look blog which has now expanded to include some Bushwick People, Restaurant Reviews, Three Ways To Wear, How To Wear and coming soon New York Fashion Week from the shows and backstage!

Today I'm launching with my staple #threewaystowear this time I am showcasing some leopard print trousers from Zara

Love you Divas,

Ruthie Darling xoxo

#1 Wear with a peter pan collared shirt for a cute 1950's vibe with a modern twist. (Note: opened toed shoes in February in NY are not advisable. Leave it to the professionals/masochistbloggersfromEngland)

#2 For French-Spy chic add a black polo neck (turtleneck to you Yanks) and fabulous flats. Octopus optional, but encouraged.

#3 For a more daytime/street look add an oversized sweater, sneaks and a hat. 

 

And that's it. Rock that leopard. See you all soon.

Love, Ruthie Darling xoxo
