dark and dingy

24/09/2013


what i'm wearing:
primark fluffy jumper (only £10)
asos skater skirt
notonthehighstreet monaco u necklace*
primark ankle boots

today was pretty crappy as far as a day to take outfit posts; foggy, dull and miserable. nevertheless i thought to myself it will be fine because i've got my trusty photoshop elements to help with a little editing on my photos with brightness etc... wrong. just my luck really that my trial ran out today when i got my images up ready to sort out, so that's why they are a little bit pants compared to usual. as much as i love photoshop elements i'm still pondering over whether i should really fork out £60+ for the full version. if anyone fancies sharing a serial code with me for it i would be forever grateful. as most days in the week are now chilly than not i thought it would be good to show my first autumn/winter ready outfit. as i had the cargidan from primark which i was completely in love with it was only fair that i bought a jumper too right? so warm and fluffy and i just love it. i'm wearing an 8 here and i wish there had been a size 6 for me to buy as they're quite big, so size down if you're thinking about getting one. the skirt was a bit of a fail purchase. i'm a big fabric snob which means i hate the likes of jersey dresses, skirts just because to me they feel cheap. so when i bought this skirt; especially with the high price tag, i thought it was going to be a good sturdy fabric. imagine my surprise when i opened the package and what was it? jersey. i've kept it as i do like the print but it is not worth the money what so ever.

  12. Primark is killing it this season, I love that jumper! I get what you mean about jersey feeling cheap, this skirt doesn't look cheap though so don't worry.

  25. I really like the top! The texture is fab. I think there should be some free editing software (free open source) online similar to photoshop. Can't remember the name but if you try googling I think it will come up! Hope that helps.
