The Model Edit is not just about what I’m wearing, but also very importantly to me, it’s about inspiring you to create similar looks from your own wardrobe.
Last Wednesday we had summer. It caught me off guard and left me with the dilemma; Do I waste these rays by carefully spending time coiffing my hair and meticulously applying make up to shoot these new Mango items or, do I simply swipe on some Topshop Rio Rio Matte lipstick that shouts very loudly and largely deludes people into thinking that I’ve made an effort? Life’s a bit short and quite a lot of it in the shade so I am to be excused the rufty tufty allure of the visuals due to lots of stuff that frankly we all experience yet never sounds interesting. Its the wisdom in my words that matters most here and that is top quality stuff. Here’s the kicker. I have incorporated another facet of themodeledit fashion wizardry by giving you a glimpse of lingerie modelled by me MrsV. Alert Reuters.

Because this little sparkler has the biker element of zipped sleeve cuffs, it’s mixing day with night. My favourite, never get bored of saying ‘most clothes can do two things if you know how, which is where I come in’. First out of the hypothetical starting gate and conjoined with my favourite logo t shirt bought in Hong Kong featuring ‘Mao-Bama’ are my vintage Adidas sweatpants found in a scruffy old charity shop in Shepherds Bush. I can’t help but imagine that a very un-fashionconscious person traded up for a Wayne Rooney Man U shell suit, thereby affording me the opportunity to ‘shine bright like a diamond’ in my look. Chuck Norris Converse coming at you from my ankle regions. Bralet from Urban Outfitters.
Urban Outfitters £20
Selfishly I think it may suit less cleavage rich women, but isn’t it the truth that you are spoilt for choice in the ‘tits out for the lads’ (or the ladies ), ( or yourselves) category. Can we have this?
Teamed with vintage white Levis 501’s bought in the East Village, NYC about 30 years ago. (No, I do not think that if you haven’t worn something for eighteen months you should sling it!) Again with the Converse All Stars party, venue; my feet . Black lacy racy body is the most amazingly fabulous, really comfortable, suitably sexy, and versatile body from H&M which although seen in London in the last ten days and purchased in the last outpost of anything very current, Exeter, on Tuesday, seems not to feature currently on the H&M website. You can see if you scrutinise which at this point I don’t really mind you doing, that I have wound the tie bit around my neck and achieved a pussy bow. I am wearing it with nothing underneath but I could be persuaded to put a singlet, or bra etc. This way girls with bigger boobs can join with us exhibitionists.
Lastly, my bezzies; a Brandy Melville t shirt, Zara jeans and Topshop silver Chelsea boots. This is probably how you’ll see me wearing this jacket the most. A sort of don’t care attitude, but do care ethos.
Encouraged by the deep love that I was experiencing via my jacket, I pressed ‘send’ and doubled my quota of silver sequinned closet friends and gained a skirt, oops.
One skirt duly shoved through my letterbox from Mango, three looks proving my point that a tight pencil skirt is available to all and depending on the length of top that you choose, will reveal or conceal your body secrets.

Pyjama top made for me by an admirer. I’ll tell if you guess who. Ever faithful white Converse well worn so totally loved, hating the thought of updating as I gradually leave tiny pieces of these everywhere I go now. If you haven’t got a pair, just get some please
.Brandy Melville top, back fastening , current as anything can be, given that I left the shop with this purchase a couple of months ago. Same shoes.
Vintage peasant top from Whistles. I remember the day I bought it twenty years ago. Kings Road Chelsea, baby in pram, screams, tension = I bought one in each colour in case I never got to a shop again. Topshop silver platform sandals, no longer actually available but more of the same everywhere.
Tops that would also work with the skirt;
Tie Neck Silk Blouse from ME+EM £148 and Asymmetric Pleated Top from Zara £19.99
