dress: topshop (<a href=
dress: topshop (cheaper ebay versions available!)
jumper: topshop
necklace: asos*
rings: jwlry and H&M
shoes: office (see this post)
nails: aa nails poppy red* barry m strawberry ice cream* and wah x models own nail pen*

Had a overwhelming urge today to wear full black this morning, but then I didn't want to be too ~dark, so I went for my velvet glitter skater that everyone and their mum has (cheaper & nicer versions via ebay, but I cant currently find any, but trust me you can get them way cheaper than what I paid for mine a few months ago!) with my diamanté Topshop jumper I've owned for yonks. This jumper used to really smell of rust for reasons unbeknown to me, but the odour has now thankfully gone! No idea why it was like that, but least I can actually wear it now without gagging! Also wore my hair in a messy beehive-ish thing today. Its my sort of my go to hair style at the moment because its easy and takes 5 mins. I love the Brigitte Bardot look, its so effortless and cool. I think I'm going to finally brave a trim soon as my hairs just getting a bit too long to manage. I cant imagine not having long hair but a few inches arent going to ruin it!

Going to a Very.co.uk event tomorrow and then I have a really exciting photoshoot thing with Forever 21 after. Fingers crossed the shoot goes well as Im doing something really exciting with them in the next few weeks! Cant wait to share it all with you! I'll be posting stuff on my Instagram (my username is llymlrs) throughout the events and I think I'll start doing the cliché  (but always my fave) weekly photo round ups on ETCLLYMLRS again now that I can be more out and about! Really excited about life at the moment!

  19. It's incredible how much a trim really makes your hair feel. I had one last month after months of not cutting it and it felt thicker and overal healthier. A few inches will grow back in no time too!

    Really liking that jazzy jumper!
