Happy Friday, friends! Here’s what I’m wearing this drizzly day in London. It’s the first outing of this magnificent dress, which is fitting perfectly into my current inclination to wear chic midi dresses every day. I admired it on Danie, then made it mine. Even better: you can get it with 20% off, using the code CYBER ’til 8am on Tuesday.
Dress : ASOS Curve
Jacket : Studio8
Shoes : Evans
My lipstick is the fantastic Sephora Luster Matte in Electra Pink which gets showered in compliments whenever I wear it.
Typical of ASOS Curve to do a discount code when I can’t buy things. The code, PERFECT20, works on all Curve items to give you 20%. Instead of actually buying them, here are the items I’ve got my beady eye on. As you can see, I’m really feeling shades of dark pink and burnt orange on ’70s-inspired items, but still super into a chic jumpsuit or a cool shirt.
In a recent post I wrote a bit about figuring out what my style is. I can sort of conclude that it’s coming down to two things: chic midi dresses, or sweet, flirty looks. This one falls into the latter category. I’d been agonising over this dress for a while and decided to just go for it. I figure it’s useful in that I can wear loads of different shirts and breton tops under it, it’ll look cute with different shoes and it’s very comfortable. I would strongly recommend sizing up, as I was advised to, because you really don’t want the poppers coming undone on a dress like this!
Back on the Kat Von D Double Dare liquid lipstick because I just can’t stay away! Honestly, my number one lipstick of all time. Earrings are H&M!
Continuing my current preference for skirts and dresses, today’s outfit is based around a super chic khaki knitted midi dress. It’s easy to wear, comfortable and keeps me the right temperature for autumn. I paired it with my trusty old leather jacket and tan boots for a chilled but chic look.
I made some money DJing on Friday night so did what I do best and spent it all on makeup, shoes and food. Most of it went on some new Charlotte Tilbury bits, all of which I’m wearing here. I’m wearing the Colour Chameleon eye crayon in Bronzed Garnet and the eyeshadow quad in Vintage Vamp, with Bond Girl lipstick on my lips. I’m totally sold on this as an eye look- it’s super easy to do and makes my green eyes look super green.
I’m trying to figure out what my style is at the moment. As much as I love trousers and tops, I’m trying to err away from the messier side of that (like when I wear sweatpants and a jumper and no makeup) because it just doesn’t make me feel good. Right now, I’m testing my comfort in things that are more ladylike, more fun, more feminine, more effortsome, and seeing how I feel in them. I ordered this dress in a big ASOS order, and it was one of only 2 items I kept. I just love it. On its first outing alone, it drew compliments from friends and strangers alike, and I felt wonderful in it. The accompanying jacket didn’t hurt, though. As soon as I saw this incredible faux fur jacket on navabi, I knew I had to have it. It’s the most realistic faux fur I’ve ever seen, it’s a beautiful colour, it keeps me warm, and the way it’s constructed in strips rather than as just one mass of material makes it look even more chic and authentic.
I finally bought a lipstick I’ve been coveting for a long time, and wore it for the first time on Saturday. Nars Cruella is just wonderful: I love the formula of the velvet matte lip pencils from Nars, and this shade is a beautiful autumnal berry-red.
