Ted's burgundy top


Ted Baker burgundy top with bow worn with grey skirt and berry boots
I may have mentioned that I have a bit of a thing for burgundy (maroon, aubergine, whatever) at the moment. It was last seen in the form of my burgundy velvet jacket. I was keen to get my hands on this top with a bow from Ted Baker.

Mr Mutton's immediate question was "does the bow come off?" (yes), but it would be a very plain top without it!

I wore the top with black cropped trousers and fishnets for lunch with a friend but tried it with grey for these photos along with berry coloured boots, bought in Cardiff around 12 years ago! I was debating whether or not to add a necklace: initially I thought it didn't need anything with the bow, but I think the white gold necklace brightens it a little.

I need to get the brush out again! (Or the vaccum cleaner --- it's not real grass, shock horror).

On a side note, I've found some great things at Ted Baker, although they do tend to use a very unforgiving fabric for their scuba dresses.  There's no such person as Ted, although they cleverly refer to Ted as if he exists in their marketing emails. The CEO, or real-life Ted, is Ray Kelvin. He started the brand as a menswear shop in Glasgow 25 years ago. It's now a global brand - and most of its success is down to word-of-mouth. Ted Baker has used what they call "Teducation" to reach influencers on social media and through guerilla marketing. Very clever.

If you want to learn more about Ray Kelvin I found this interesting article.

Have you got your eye on any Ted Baker pieces for spring/summer? Is it a brand you regularly visit?

  5. Gail, this is a lovely outfit. I love the bow detail and am a fan of Ted Baker as well. He had a dress print a couple years ago I loved and wish I would have bought. Those boots are fab and love the buttons on your pencil skirt.
