OUTFIT POST: Day & Night!

Hi everyone!

Sorry for not updating you all sooner on the second day on fashion week. I've had so much scripting and writing to do for my dissertation this week I've hardly had any time to blog! However I've been taking a few outfit pictures for you guys.

This is a pretty laid-back outfit for me. I hardly wear jeans-and-t-shirt outfits these days. But it was a long day, so I just wanted to be comfortable:

T-SHIRT: Hot Topic, $25.
JEGGINGS: Dorothy Perkins, £10.
NECKLACE: Topshop, £12.
HAIRBAND: Primark, £3.50.
BOOTS: Fenwicks, £25.
POINT OF FASHION: Comfortable for a long day at university.

And the second was for dinner at my friend Michael's dinner party last night. You can read all about it in Michael's fabulous food blog!

DRESS: Dorothy Perkins, £25.
JEGGINGS: Dorothy Perkins, £10.
BELT: New Look, £8.
NECKLACE: Topshop, £10ish.
SHOES: Dorothy Perkins, £15.

To go with the roses theme, I kept my makeup really simple - simplistic lined eyes, and dark lips. I got the lipstick free at The Look Show and it's by Beneift. I can't believe I haven't tried their lipsticks before - they're so glossy and gorgeous!

Michael's dinner was absolutely fabulous. Please check out his blog for his amazing dishes as he cooks his way through Jamie Oliver's cookbook.
He's one of my superfans of this blog, and in honour of this - he produced bottles of Evian Spring Water designed by Jean Paul Gaultier! I was so surprised!

I PROMISE my next entry will be all about Bernard Chandran's party where I mingled with celebrities and met Mr. Jimmy Choo!
Keep your lovely comments coming, follow me on Twitter, ask me questions on Formspring.Me!

Muchos Love,

PS: My dad was reading my blog today and even added it to his favourites! My sister is in the process of turning him vaguely-fashionable (he got his first ever pair of Converse for his 50-something birthday in June) so maybe it's rubbing off on him?


  1. ah you got jeggings! I've been looking for a good pair for a while, I'm going to check out dorothy perkins now :) I love the dress a well, you look very pretty!

  2. Oh wow i LOVE the I <3 Ken t-shirt!

  3. My girlfriend is looking over my shoulder and also loves your t-shirt. She wants you to know she thinks you're cute as a button :)

  4. Weesha: Yeah, I love them! These are so cute, and they also suit my sister who is nearly 6ft, size 10 and has the longest legs i've ever seen! thank you so much for following - i love your blog, it's fierce! your 'hilda' outfit really made me smile, i LOVE that show! <333

    Lillian: I do too. The same design was in New Look over the summer, but it was baby pink which I don't suit. So hoorah for Hot Topic stocking this (and my American friend who posted it for me in exchange for a parcel of Cadbury's so I could save on the horrible shipping prices!).

    Awwww tell her thank you, and I'm her girlfriend's number 1 fan! ;DD I'm going shopping tomorrow and may be picking up some Barry M lipsticks! :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. Hey Carla,

    Hope you don't mind me asking but just wondered what size tee that I heart Ken is as I can't really work it out from the sizing chart? xx

  6. it's an XXL, which works out at a 16-18 cause I prefer my t-shirts to be a bit looser fitting for comfort! i wish we had hot topic over here, i think their stuff is so cute!

  7. I love the second outfit, florals and black are my two fave things and when combined = awesome!
    And I found you're blog through Lauren's tweet btw :) Love it x

  8. Yeah me too. I'm a bit tired of all the ditzy florals at the minute because they're just everywhere, so much prefer the darker ones!

    I'm so glad you like Lauren too - we're both from the same area, so she's a local hero. It's so cute, when she gets recognised in Morrisons she says it's not her! ;DD

  9. you are just too cute for words!! love your style :)

  10. Awww thank you :DD xxxxxxxxxxxx

  11. I love the dress . I don't find it on DP , is this a recent model?
