Cherry and Chocolate - OOTD

Just a quick ootd of what I wore to college the other day (I neglected to put this up the day I took the pictures, woops). I got the coat as a 21st birthday present from my sister, and it is BEAUTIFUL. Just what I needed for my autumn wardrobe ;) I'm considering getting some fur cuffs and a collar from asos to accessorise it for winter.

I have been looking for a nice pair of flat knee high boots for a while now but to no avail, most were oddly proportioned or just... wrong. Who knew I could find the perfect pair in Penneys of all places??The cardigan is also from Penneys, I decided it was about time I got myself a comfy cardie, I've worn it every day since I bought it :)

Coat - Topshop
Cardigan and boots - Penneys/Primark
Leotard - Topshop
Skirt - New Look
Socks - Penneys/Primark
Necklace - Primark


P.S. I'm currently hooked on the tv show 'Community'... If you've never seen it check it out, SO funny. It has been seriously detrimental to my level productivity though.. I'm already on the second season since discovering it three days ago. Oops.

Masquerade!


   My friends' 21st was on last night and they decided to have a masquerade theme (the best kind of theme I think!). I couldn't afford to spend money on a mask/didn't think any of them were worth it so I decided to paint one on ;) So here is a Fotn i guess? But more extreme! 




I practiced the night before just using what I had at home. I changed it a little then on the day and I think it turned out really well! Here's what I used:

For the black I used a Benefit Cake Liner, and it worked perfectly, you only need one layer to make it a nice matte black. I have tons of beads in my house so I decided to just use some pearly seed beads to define the edges and make it more 3D, stuck on with eyelash glue. The feathers were from a hairband I had from Penney's, and I left the eyes simple with just black liner (after this picture I added on some fake eyelashes too).

I was happy at how it turned out, and it did take people a few seconds to realise it was painted on ;) Unfortunately I forgot my camera (like an eejit I know) so I've no pictures of everyone else's masks but we all looked very mysterious! :P

Now, I'm off to bed, got sleep to catch up on before my birthday tomorrow (!!), good night!

Autumn Wish List!!

Autumn wish list!

I LOVE Autumn. Ok, the rain, not so much, but the clothes? YUM. The colours, the textures, the layering... *sigh* I love having an excuse to wear a fluffy scarf, and wooly socks, and boots. I'm excited just thinking about it. And now that it's finally october, the time has come to start stocking up on the clothes I've been dreaming about wearing all summer. I've been on a spending ban this past month due to a serious lack in funds, but hopefully with my birthday coming up I will be able to get my hands on a few of these beauties! At the very least I intend to liven up my wardrobe with some new fluffy socks ;) I'm also on the hunt for a new winter coat, something more casual than the one I currently own. Unfortunately these tend to be on the more expensive side so I'm going to have a look in good ol' Penneys to see what I can find :)

  I've also decided to stream line my wardrobe. Last month I did a massive clear out but I've found that my collection of clothes just isn't cohesive. There is a lack of... continuity, I guess you'd call it.. in the jumble of clothes in my closet. I tend to buy on a whim, resulting in a mish mash of what can only be described as stuff. So this Autumn, I'm going to form a capsule wardrobe and try to channel a more sophisticated, put together persona. Well, we'll see how it goes anyway :P
