outfit of the day ootd
shirt: zalando *
necklace: asos *
skirt: primark
coat: boohoo
nails: look beauty ribbons* and LA Splash glitter

Went for high tea with Next today, which was absolutely lovely. Cakes, cocktails and chatter, and of course wonderful company. It was just what a perfect blogger event should be like! Probably inappropriate wear for afternoon tea, with all the black, spikes and leather, but oh well! I'll post about the event later on in the week, But it was really lovely, and I was very pleasantly surprised with what Next has to offer over the coming months! I'm absolutely shattered though, Daytime drinking just simply doesnt agree with me! Now to change straight into my PJ's and curl up in bed!

  4. I never choose any burgundy when I'm shopping but having seen it on a few bloggers I think I might give it a shot next time i see something I like in it.

    Love a bit of glitter on nails, they look great!

  7. I love this look, a big fan of black, spikes, and leather! ;) So you can't go wrong with this. That shirt is awesome too, not everyone could carry off walking around with little crosses all over their top.

  53. i love that you wear the same clothes in different posts, and always look stunning! its inspirational to think we don't have to all have one use of a garment then it's immediately unwearable again (like with some vlog/bloggers) love your blog!X

  62. Lovely outfit. I adore the coat... shame its all sold out :( <3

    ReplyDelete
  63. love the coat, and the skirt actually - but always feel a bit funny about shopping at primark because of the ethical issues that seem to surround it, what do you think?

    would love people to check facelesschic.blogspot.com xx fc

    ReplyDelete
  64. another great outfit! I fancy the same style in black but then there's also the one you wore here that I really like as well as it seems more like a coat. which one would you recommend value for money and shape/style-wise?

    everybody else's girl
