Secret Diary of a Fabulous Girl


About 3 years ago, oh maybe even longer, a show called the Secret Diary of a Call Girl stole my heart.
As it revolves around the complicated life of Hannah portrayed masterfully by Billie Piper, a seemingly normal girl, who lives a secret life as a call girl, one becomes enchanted by the complicated story plot of her colliding two worlds.
Just like Sex and the City, the first few seasons were cleverly written but lacked avant-garde outfits to make a fashionista go crazy for the show. Season 4 changed it all when the season begins with  Hannah looking at her newly posh house caring a coral patent Mulberry Bayswater.  I then realized I had more in common with this girl than I thought mind you mine is the black pebble leather version.

I realize the picture shows a red Bayswater but I swear to you it was coral on the show.
So when she sported this wacky outfit , few episodes later, well, it inspired me to give it a try too.
I had the black jumpsuit, I had a white furry ( faux) overthrow and a BLACK Bayswater. 
So how could I incorporate a bit of that colour into my outfit? By swapping the black bow headband scarf with a purple and red printed one.

 Jumpsuit: Club Monaco
Faux-Fur Shag: Aldo
Shoes: Target
Bag: Mulberry Bayswater
Earrings: Vintage
Scarf: Vintage
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

I never really got into Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and now, seeing this fabulous look, I'm a little disappointed in myself for not sticking out until the fourth season to see the fashion transformation of Hannah! I love your take on this look- the bright hair ribbon that you've added brings such a fun pop of colour to the look, as do those earrings (still amazing!) and I am dying of envy over that beauty Mulberry bag :)
xox,
Cee

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

i wish i had something in common with this girl: Laurence Fox. anyway; you look amazing, just found your blog and i love it. it is such an eclectic look and i love eclectic. everything is all about the accessories and the little details. love the pop up color by the scarf and the earrings (oh the earrings, want the earrings). the black looks smashing but not dull because of the color and the vest. of course the it bag is the finishing touch. looking perfect girl

Dear Mina,
Today you proved to me and the whole world that you are a fucking genius when it comes to matching the clother and coming up with a perfect outfit. I love Hannah and her style and you are right-the 4 series is flamboyant with respect to style but now I think she should take some lessons from your my dear. Thumbs up for my brilliant friend and constant inspiration.

Carly said...

I think I've seen one episode of that show and I liked it, I'll have to watch it again starting with season 1. I love how you re-created this outfit. I think jumpsuits are hard to pull off sometimes, but you did it beautifully
