dressing up in red

20/11/2013


what i'm wearing:
H&M blouse
topshop faux leather trousers
ASOS platform heels (really old)
topshop leather clutch

so if you're anything like me, the cold is your worst enemy when you need to dress up. instead of being able to dress up in a nice dress with some cute heels we now would much rather wrap up in several layers and hope for the best. so when i had a meal to go earlier in the week i had no idea what to wear and i decided to throw this together, and i'm quite glad with how it looks. as the blouse is red i think it already keeps in theme with christmas and it's a colour i associate with dressier outfits anyway, meaning if you were looking for something for an upcoming christmas work do this is something i'd choose for it. then of course what else would i chose to pair it with other than my trusty LT's (leather trousers)? i think overall it's a nice bohemian/relaxed look that still shows you've made an effort without allowing yourself to suffer in the freezing cold!

the weather where i live has taken a turn for the worst so after been stuck in apocalyptic weather in my car for the last couple of hours i am now confined to my bed for the rest of this night hoping i'll warm up! in other news *drum roll* i'm buying a canon EOS 600d! i'm so excited to finally take good quality photographs. hopefully this might give liam the final push he needs to decide to do outdoor shots for me, and if not is okay because i have a viewfinder so i can see myself, muhaha. i hope it's easy to navigate and learn how to work so if you already own this camera if you can comment with your tips on how you work it that would be amaze
