OOTD: Pink because the boys stink (the devils in the details)

The weather has been really unkind to my skin lately; I’m dry and flaky as well as breaking out, not to mention I have roots for miles. What better time to pick up a camera, right? I guess if it feels right you gotta go with it.
So you know when you buy a piece of clothing and you think “Yup. This is the thing I’m going to wear for the rest of my life.” That’s kinda how it was for me when I picked up this gorgeous Pink Fluffy Jumper from New Look Inspire.
I’d had my eye on a similar one at Simply Be, but when I saw this reduced to £12 I had to make it mine.

Mmmm. Sooo floooofy
 
It comes in a lovely eyelash material and is much more vibrant than the website photo gives it credit for. Oh man is this thing soft. Angel hair soft. Fluffy kitten soft. Gatdang soft, ok? Not to mention warm. My house, being so old, get pretty cold at times and this has kept me more than warm and snug. Did I mention it’s soft?
It’s a nice length. Not too short (although I’d kill for this in cropped) and not too long. I’m not great with the whole “boyfriend cardi” look, I just kinda look like a kid trying on their mums clothes.
 

 
I put this with a simple pair of black skinny jeans (jeans whaaaat?!) and my black Demonia maryjanes. I’ve yet to master the fine art of taking full length pictures with my feet in.
The devilish details? Well, I figured because this is so lovely and vibrant, and with the busy eyelash material, I didn’t want to over complicate it. I stuck with the pink theme and minimal accessories. Cue these beauties: Tickled Pink Flamigo drop earrings from Black Heart Creatives.

I love Black Heart Creatives because they are so fun and adorably kitsch. But also well made and good quality. It helps even more that they are an independant business with excellent customer service. I had an issue with a previous purchase and they couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. If you haven’t gotten anything yet, stick it on your list because they are a must!

I finished this look with pink brows, pink glittery eyemake up and pink lipstick (An early one from the Kate Moss range with Rimmel). Obviously

OOTD: Stormy weather

So I finally rode the storm out and got the colour out of my hair. Wow, blues are a VERY stubbourn colour to remove. 
I quite like the icy blonde, even if it is just an inbetween colour, and so it felt like a good time to pay homage to my favoute goth, Lauren,  and slip on my recent purchase. 

 
The dress was advertised as long sleeved but as you can see this is not the case for me. But the material is made from a gorgeously soft jersey ad has a lovely stretch to it. It does ride up a little but that’s due to my tummy. 

 

 
I bought this in a large in the straight size section back in the summer and I’ve been waiting for it to cool off enough to wear it. It was a little pricey at £24.99, especially with my local Asda selling one very similar for £16 (I couldn’t find it on the website so it might be worth checking out your local George section!), but with that said I can’t tell you how soft and snuggly this cardigan is. I’ve had SO many people comment on how lovely it feels and I’ve even had a male friend of mine try to acquisition it. I’m sure it may very well feature in some future sets!

 

I couldn’t complete my witchyness without some wonderfully dark lipstick and lots and lots of rings. 
Lipstick is Kate Moss’ Lasting Finish 04 for Rimmel. It’s a glossy, rich, and very deep purple. I’m a big fan of the Kate Moss range of Rimmel lipsticks, I’m particularly fond of the matte range.
