Rainy Day Women

Top from Suzy Shier | Skirt from Forever 21 | Belt from Sirens | Steve Madden Pumps | Bracelet C/O Chicwish 

It's not very often that I get dressed up, but whenever presented with an opportunity to do so I've always found it fun! For this look, I paired a draped blouse with a fitted pencil skirt from Forever 21. My mother picked this blouse up for me at a sale a couple of months ago and I've worn it to death, it's not something I would've picked out for myself but I absolutely love it. Funny how that works sometimes, isn't it? 

For accessories, I opted for a pretty little bracelet from Chicwish, skinny black belt, and red nails and lips (Butter London's Come To Bed Red and Rimmel's Kiss of Life, respectively.). As for shoes, I wore my trusted Madden pumps, which are sadly but unsurprisingly beginning to show how much they've been worn. Would it be strange to admit that I'm considering buying a new pair on eBay for when these ones are beyond hope? Because I'm thinking of doing just that. 


I tried to be like Grace Kelly...

This was requested by a subscriber on Youtube a little bit ago. This is the first tutorial I’ve done since moving house and I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things. I’ve got another in mind that I’m hoping to film soon, but until then here is my little Grace Kelly tutorial! 

Title of this post is from, of course, Mika's 2006 song, Grace Kelly. I was utterly obsessed with this song back then. 


Kind of Blue

Dress C/O SheInside | Heels from Urban Behaviour

When it comes to evening dresses, I usually would opt for black or red. Black is undeniably classic and sophisticated and red is bold and sensual. All good qualities for a evening gown. But with that said, and in the spirit of how things have been progressing of late, I decided I'd branch out and try something a little more unexpected. A bright blue lace gown from SheInside. With the sheer lace panelling and skirt, the dress feels modern but vintage inspired with its modest neckline and mermaid cut. I paired it with a pair of cheap glitzy heels and no accessories for a glam, but not over-the-top evening look.
