Outfit of the day 25/12/15

Yes it’s a little late but I’ve been too busy, eeeehhhh, eating….. And working! Yes!! I’ve been working too! Ah the joys of the service industry!! 

  
Black courts (not really seen) are from Penneys / Primark, tulle skirt is from Cari’s Closet (sale for €20!!), black cardi is from Oasis, beads are Chanel, watch is DKNY, and ring is antique.

Christmas Day was its usual whirlwind of visiting and jamming as much into it as possible, before being able to take off the nice clothes & put on your jammies because (in the words of Regina George) “this is all that fits me right now”. 

Proof!! 

  
‘Til next time……

Messings & meet ups

So I had a fairly busy week this week, with catch ups & things to be done. I love being busy, now I love my chill out time, but there’s nothing like having a plan too.

Last Saturday was a night out for my friend’s birthday. And as is my tradition I went whole hog with the glamour & dolling myself up. I wore these leather effect leggings from American Apparel (I’ve mentioned them before), still love the fact they’re a medium!! Yes they’re super stretchy but they’re a MEDIUM!!! The grey tunic/dress is from Zara, I’ve had it a few years now, and have gotten so much use from it. It’s possibly one of the comfiest dresses I own, I’m never worried about my cleavage or my tum in it, and that’s why I wanted to wear it out. I teamed this with my quilted bag & whopper heels both from Penneys. Again they’re both a few years old but there are very similar styles of shoes out at the moment. They are about 5inches and make me even more of a giant but because of the platform under the toes they’re super comfy. I call them my dancing shoes, and one advantage I discovered (or recovered) is when you’re a giant, people move out of the way! Yipeee!! With the outfit being so simple I could get away with massive ear-rings, so massive I had to take them off before the end of the night because they hurt my ears! So I back combed the shizz out of my hair, threw it into a messy ponytail & went hell for leather (hehehe) for the rock chick look (lots of eyeliner & mascara to finish it off).

On my day off I got some Christmas shopping done, so that was all about the comfort. I wasn’t going to be trying on (that was the plan anyway) so I didn’t need to have easy to remove clothing. I went with this long sleeved white top from H&M, with this very cute short sleeved green jacket from A-wear (it’s ancient, bought it for a fiver in the sales, a fiver!!), comfy jeans from Levi’s (from their curve range, which I’ve discussed before), & Converse on my feets. My accessories are the blue skull scarf from Fran & Jane, handbag was my mums, and cosy hat from Roxy – I bought it in Australia so not sure if it was available here, but there are deffo similar versions around. I spruced up my look with some pink lippy, I used the no2 from Kate Moss for Rimmel, love the colour & it works for day & night. So I was comfy & cozy to battle the shops.

Yesterday I met up with some friends I hadn’t seen in a while so could go low key while still looking nice. I wore (from the feet) flowery ballet pumps from Penneys, jeans (as before) from Levi’s, long sleeved grey top from Bond Australia (bought in Target, I miss Target), with coral coloured top under from Cotton On (again bought in Australia, but they now have an online store or similar tees are available elsewhere – Gap is always good for them!), with my cosy cardigan from Fran & Jane (or coatigan as the girls were calling it last night) on top. To make myself feel a bit more glammed up I wore some red lippy – cannot beat a nice red lippy – from Benefit (colour is “frenched”), and did a Katniss style plait in my hair.
