Sass & Sportsgirl

I continue to be in love with armour, harnesses, embellished epaulettes, capelets etc as exemplified by the amazing Sass and Bide. (Did anyone else notice in “Gok’s Fashion Fix“, Brix used a Sass & Bide harness in her Glam Warrior look in episode 3?)

I know Papa Sucre is the latest range  fresh from London Fashion Week, but it’s the “Tomorrow the Great” range from which I’ll be snapping up pieces (if there are any left) when sales commence.



So where did I get the title of this post from?

Well, I went shopping the other day to pick up a few things for my upcoming holiday, andwas astonished to see an almost identical harness to Sass & Bide’s in Sportsgirl!  (See my Sass & Bide post here, and DIY statement neckpiece/harness here). Despite the fact it was really last summer’s look, I had to have it. Compare the two below:


Dear god! it’s similar. And looks even better from the back.

I tried it on with the Sass & Bide graphic print dress I bought earlier this year – and found they work really well together.

First, right way around:


…but back-to-front looks even better! Accessorised with a blue mirror necklace from Forever 21. What do you think?

So I call this my Sass & Sportsgirl outfit. I noticed the same Sportsgirl harness on ebay if you wanna pick one up for yourself.

Inspired by some of the embellished neckpieces of the dresses above, I got a much simpler and cheaper version in Urban Edge, seen here with a co-ordinating ring from Diva.

The fabric is such that it won’t crush when packed – a real plus when travelling! It also hangs loose from just under the bust, so will be forgiving as I consume my laksas, satays, curry mee’s, roti canai’s and more. It’s also glamorous enough to wear out to a swish restaurant or bar at night.  

At 3pm I fly to Kuala Lumpur and will be taking lots of pictures as I eat, shop and party. It might be a few days before I post them, but there will be postcards from Malaysia. See you on the flipside!


  1. lovely!! 🙂 cant wait..

  2. have a nice trip!

  3. Love it!! I really love your necklace, too! Doesn’t F21 have the best accessories??!!

    • They do, and so cheap!! They do use cheap sweatshop labour to keep prices down so I shouldn’t really buy there, but I just had to pop into the Shinjuku store when I was there.
