bang on trend, for once

08/10/2013


what i'm wearing:
bank fashion tartan dress*
topshop leather gilet (last year)
notonthehighstreet monaco u necklace*
bank fashion heeled boots*

okay so in hindsight maybe the nail colour and the outfit i'm wearing are polar opposites, never mind. what can i say i just want to hold onto summer as much as possible and pastel nail colours seem to be the way to do it! that being said i hate to be the one to blow my own trumpet but it seems i had a really good eyebrow day when i took these photos. which is about time as i'm constantly growing them out to try and get more defined shape. anyway... i think this is the perfect autumn outfit for someone who likes to add a bit of grunge into their wardrobe like myself. probably not the best idea to wear a sleeveless jacket if its sub-zero weather but at the moment you can still get away with it. these boots are a dream for me. my boyfriend hates them because they're clumpy and big but who cares, i love em! despite most fashion advice telling ladies with my leg to body ratio not to wear boots that cover the ankles as it makes you look stumpy, i think they aren't too bad. even if they do i don't care i'm going to live in them over the winter, i can just tell. grips on the bottom mean not slipping over for me, muaha. hope you like, and thank you carolyn from bank fashion for the goodies!

  2. I'm kind of in love with the dress AND the boots. Especially since tartan is a bit of a 'thing' for me, and I think grippy boots are a must for winter!
