Florals and Pentacles

Hey everyone,

Usually with outfit posts, I try not to re-use items over and over again unless there are long hiatuses inbetween.
That, and I have too many dresses anyway.

However, once in a while there is a dress that is so easy to style in many different ways - and this is one of them.
It's the perfect fit on me, suits pretty much all my accessories to create a completely new look.


DRESS: New Look.
CARDIGAN: H&M via Ebay.
NECKLACE: Urban Outfitters.
BELT: Next.
TIGHTS: Dorothy Perkins.
BOOTS: Bearpaw.
POINT OF FASHION: Florals and pentacles.

Apologies for the phone picture - I was rushing out the door and didn't have time to go and grab my camera.
But as you can see, the dress although simple is styled completely different than in this post.






1. If you follow me on Twitter you may have already seen this picture, but I decided on impulse to change my side fringe to a centre/block one. I absolutely love it - however I think it takes a few years off my age (I'm 22), so I'll have to remember to carry I.D. with me whenever I go out for some fizzy pop!

2. A close up of my belt - I loved the stud detail, and I'm actually wearing it back to front to get the full effect! You could never tell, could you? Also I'm wearing the pentacle necklace I bought in Urban Outfitters a few month ago - I've been watching copious amounts of Buffy this week, so I must have been inspired by the wonderful Willow Rosenberg!

Link3. My eye makeup. I haven't done colourful makeup in a while, and was in the mood for being creative. The eyeshadows came from Urban Decay's Fun Palette - the individual colours if you're interested are Psychedelic Sister (purple) and Baked (gold).


I'm coming to the end of my Christmas shopping now - how about you all?
I've also had three birthdays to buy for, and it's exciting that they're all coming up: for Italian Catholic Mother's birthday we're having a lovely meal and drinks, for my best-friend Sam's birthday we're going dancing in town, then for my sister's 18th we're going for another meal and then seeing Boulevard's Christmas show!

Then of course I'm off to America soon.
I've had an AMAZING response to the guest writers post and there's some wonderful creative posts coming up in December.


Muchos love,
MessyCarla.

  1. I love the new fringe. I'd love to have a fringe if I didn't have curly hair. I like how you've done your eye make-up too, and very envious you got a great photo... I never can.
    I'm nearly there with my Christmas shopping too, getting really excited now, can't wait to get the Christmas cds on xxx

  3. I just got started on my Christmas shopping and I'm so excited! I love to give gifts and I tend to break the bank a little bit with it :P but so far I've got a Christmas album and a hat for family members.

    Anyways I really like your outfit and how you styled the dress; I especially love the double belt.

  4. I love this outfit, I like the combination of the print of the dress and the purple cardigan, just perfecto.

    I have a soft spot for pentagrams, it probably stems from my younger years of trying to freak out my parents. Well lol that and I just like them.

    I love the way you did your eye makeup, it looks gorgeous, you have very beautiful eyes.

    I haven't done any Christmas shopping, I'm really poor so I don't get to really.
