Dress: Primark
Blazer: Vintage
Shoes(*): Barratts
Bracelet: Pandora
Rings: New Look

These photos were shot on such a lovely day. The sun on my face, the wind in my hair. It was just beautiful! Why can't England have more days like this?
I bought this dress from Primark, it was one of Primarks more expensive items, but it was definitely an item worth buying. Money put to good use i say! I love this Victorian-esque pattern, it's one of my favourite patterns. I even had the walls in my bedroom wallpapered with this pattern on once upon a time. I got this dress a size up as i wanted it a little bit bigger, as to not be suffocated by it, and it sits exactly how i wanted it to. I love skater dresses, there my go to dress, so when i saw this, there was no doubt in my mind that i was going to buy it. Normally, i tend to stay away from white items of clothing, and even though i didn't try this on in the shop, like i normally would with white items, i'm so glad i bought it, as i think it's actually really flattering. To wear with this dress, i went for a vintage blazer that i own, it's deep pink colour looks great against the dress, and the boldness of both items, creates a lovely outfit. This blazer has small shoulder pads, which isn't too noticeable probably because it's a smidge too big for me. I've kept accessories to quite a minimum, just wearing my usual watch and wire ring and Pandora bracelet. I've added a couple other simple gold rings too, which i think look nice with my pastel orange nails.

I've been wanting to wear this duster coat in a post for ages, but due to the Winter weather, there wasn't a right time for a light jacket. The day these photos were shot, it was actually quite a nice day and therefore a lighter jacket was more practical as opposed to my usual duffle coat. I went for an all black outfit, with hints of white, just to show that my look is quite versatile, and sometimes, very rarely i will dabble in wearing a pair of jeans. We shot these photos in an underground car park, as i'm trying to be a bit more creative with my photos, to try and attract more readers to my blog. This duster coat is very simple, ankle length and all black, I thought this outfit would look good wearing my 'imperfect' top as it gives the outfit a bit more of a grunge look. As i've already said, i am wearing jeans. They are plain black high-waisted jeans, and they sit very comfortably. I think the white plimsolls work really well with this look and the pop of white just looks great. I've got dark nail varnish on, and i think the look and the location where the look was shot gives a real grunge look to the outfit, which i actually quite like.
