i've gone monochrome mad

20/05/2013


what i'm wearing:
h&m dip hem dress
topshop waterfall blazer (old)
choies buckle ankle boots*
MAC lipstick in lady danger
OASAP bag*
MK watch

i can't believe that in the whole year i've had this blazer, i've worn it the grand total of four times. it's such a lovely blazer too just white is so difficult to wear. you never know though with the all white trend that is currently in i may find more opportunities to wear it despite with all black outfits. can you believe this dress is only £7.99?! it's such a good quality fabric too and there's a wide variety of colours so i think i might get a couple more such as the white and mint blue they have just for holiday. after trying out lady danger three times now i've come to the conclusion that i just don't suit it, it's far too blue toned for my skin tone and it just washes me out completely even when i'm fake tanned like i am at the moment. such a shame as i anticipated buying it for such a long time.

as i have tomorrow off from work (the first time i've had a weekday off at work in god knows how long) i'm finally planning on seeing the great gatsby. i hope it's as good as everyone has been saying it was and how it looked on the trailer. SO EXCITED.

  4. Beautiful white blazer, it looks so polished! Monochrome is so classic, and you can really play around with accessories/coloured lipsticks which is fun :)

    1. I completely agree, I wish I'd added a statement necklace or something just to add a little extra to it x

  5. That's a gorgeous outfit, I love monochrome :) and I didn't realise how the choies boots looked from the front! I had a completely different idea of what they looked like, could you possibly show a close up of them in another post sometime? They're lovely :) x

  17. Lovely outfit!

    The Great Gatsby is brilliant, Leonardo DiCaprio is amazing and pulls off being Jay Gatsby so well. I saw it opening night with my boyfriend and we both really enjoyed it (and I've read the book) :)
