 I don’t always have time to take proper outfit pictures (When I say ‘proper’, I mean get Joe to take them on my iPhone in front of a non threatening background). I always have time to take a quick mirror pic though, so I’ve decided I’ll be including those on here too! It doesn’t really matter which one of us is holding the phone, does it?

The above outfit is something I wore to an Indian on Friday. I suspect the blouse is vintage because it smells a bit funky, but I can’t be sure. It’s so flattering though, I love everything about it!

 I wore this colourful number to Liverpool shopping on Saturday. I’ve had this shirt for a couple of years but couldn’t bear to throw it away – I then realised it clashed beautifully with my new fluffy jumper! I had two members of staff from Fred Perry accost me while I was shopping to tell me they loved my outfit and ask me where I bought everything, which was nice.

You can’t see them that well in the pics, but I wore my iridescent Nike’s and my mermaid bag. MAC’s ‘Heroine’ lippy finished off the look nicely.

Shirt – Topshop.

Jumper – Tesco.

Jeans – Topshop.

Shoes – Nike @ Office.

Bag – River Island.

This was Sunday’s outfit. Not for anything special; a bit of work, dog-sitting duties, and finally a nice carvery. You can’t go wrong with a bit of Pac (although this top is around 2 years old too)! These hi-top velcro fastening Reebok’s were a bargain find. I bought them from an outlet store in Vegas for the equivalent of around £20 – never worn, and they’re actual vintage sneakers!

Loopy cardigan – Missguided.

Tupac tunic – H&M. (similar here)

Leggings – Topshop.

Vintage Reebok’s – some random outlet store in Vegas.

I was panicking a bit about taking outfit photos this time of year. The nights are coming in sooo depressingly early, and when it’s light it’s mainly tipping it down. Mirror outfit pics could be the solution!

What do you think? Ciao for now!

CND Vinylux – Midnight Swim

Bonjour! Here’s another of my Vinylux polishes, Midnight Swim. I love witchy, dark colours like this one! The perfect ‘cool’ shade for these tooth chattering, ‘brrrr’ days we’re having lately. I thought it painted on nicely but I haven’t removed it yet – It’ll probably be harder than Grapefruit Sparkle as it’s a dark colour. I always hold the acetone soaked cotton pad on the nail for a few seconds before wiping anyway, so hopefully this will stop the colour from staining my nails and skin.

Unfortunately this colour hasn’t lasted on my nails at all. I had it on just 1 day before it started to chip at the edges. I’m not sure whether this is because my work involves me typing all day long, or because I viciously ripped a pumpkin apart with my bare hands to make soup from the tasty flesh. Either way, I hope the next one lasts longer!
