My NEW LOOK new-old dress

My NEW LOOK new-old dress

Hello I’m back! And with a new (old) dress. I bought this dress from my friend a while ago. It’s brand new but I’ve had it lying around for more than 6 months. I have so many clothes just lying around still with their tags on, I really shouldn’t be buying new ones. Dang! HAHA!

Wow! 151 posts. I am still amazed. This transformation from jeans, t-shirt & sneakers to dressy dress-up daily is a little crazy for something that happened just under 2 years ago.

Pink & Black is possibly my latest fav combination

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Baby pink t-shirt with bow from NEW LOOK

Bottom: Black sequinned flared mini skirt from FAITH21

Accessories: Black plastic beaded necklace from some random street shop

Footwear: Black slingback peeptoe wedges from CLARKS

You do realise that this is a very close variation to my Oct 1st Children’s Day outfit right? The tops and skirts are from the same range in their own brands! See here!

Forget demure... Cheeky it is.

What I’m wearing:

Dress: Dark Grey sleeves shift dress with pleats from ZARA

Footwear: Black peeptoe slingback wedges from CLARKS

This is me pretending to be cheery and pose-y. In reality, after 10 consecutive days of festival madness, I was a little drained. Dark eye rings with small hand-carry size bags and some zits. It was fun being on the ground and the adrenalin rush of the festival is fantastic but I suspect I might not have the energy to rock out for more than a couple of more years.

Thanks Annabelle for the pictures!

I came into work and Michelle said I look like a Christmas tree…The red and the green are very striking together, yes?

Top: Frilly emerald green top with mesh from eBay (only GBP 3.99) – no tags to be found

Bottom: Dark blue jeggings from RED HERRING

Bag: Red, green and blue hand-dyed natural cotton tote from BAREFOOT

Yes, these are the same bottoms I’ve been wearing. I haven’t washed these jeggings in… erm… several wears. HAH!
