Life In Plastic, It's Fantastic.


Hey everyone,

It's been another sunny week here in the North, and today I was in one of those moods where I just want to wear something bright and colourful.

With my matchy-matchy neon pink lipstick and belt together with my plastic accessories I feel a bit like a doll you would give a small child. Maybe with handy educational phrases?


DRESS: Dorothy Perkins.
JACKET: Matalan.
SUNGLASSES: c/o HalloweenCostumes.com
BROOCHES: Heidi Seeker.
NECKLACE: Primark.
BELT: Dorothy Perkins.
BOW: ASOS.
SHOES: Barratts via Ebay.
POINT OF FASHION: Bright, colourful and plastic.

Just in case it got a bit chilly, I threw this Kitson scarf over my shoulders - and of course added a sweep of my favourite bright pink lipstick (Anime lip tar by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics).


I also completely love my new heart-shaped sunnies, which were kindly sent to be to by HalloweenCostumes.com

Now what was originally going to happen was I was going to create an outfit using elements of fancy dress which sounded absolutely ace, so was also sent a pair of red glittery Dorothy shoes. 

Sadly, they turned out to be a size too small - but I remembered that Claire from French For Cupcake has tiny pixie feet, so they are already on their way to Belfast and should be featured on her blog soon!

The company are absolutely awesome, though - very creative ideas for working with bloggers, and a shout out to PR girl Aleksandra who is the perfect mix of approachable and friendly, yet professional!


In other news, I had my cinderella extensions taken out this week to give my hair a well-earned rest and for the foreseeable future will be using clip-ins instead. 
I absolutely love these pink ombre locks - neon fuchsia at the top to candy floss pink at the tips. 
I now want them in every colour!


Finally, I'll definitely try to write another post before I go - but I'm back in London next week for a top secret mission on Wednesday (oooh!) and I am also sneaking in a theatre trip during my visit!

I've been wanting to see Matilda since hearing great things about it's preview in Stratford-Upon-Avon and just have to see it during it's West End run.

The soundtrack is absolutely wonderful (the music and lyrics are by Tim Minchin, so what else can you expect, really?) and the book and film were two of my favourites in childhood. 
Can you tell I'm just a bit excited?





Muchos love,
MessyCarla.


PS: Don't forget to enter my Pearls & Swine giveaway which ends on Tuesday.

PPS: I almost forgot to share this video as it made me laugh harder than anything else this week. 
Awww man, George Takei is just awesome isn't he?

  4. George Takei is too cute, I adore his laugh at the end. I love heart shaped glasses, I just bought a pair recently and I don't know why it took me this long to get a pair. I love your sense of style, truly.

  9. Lady, you're too cute. I have those sunglasses - I got mine from LRROK (may it rest in peace) and I took them to Las Vegas about a year ago and bloody hell... in the bright Nevada sunshine, I couldn't see a fucking thing. Everything was bright bright red and I had to buy a darker pair :D
