ugly awesome








tunic: river island (beach wear)
leggings: H&M
shoes: asos*
watch: swatch
lips: nars bolero


I saw Charlene wearing this a few weeks ago and spotted it when I went shopping with my housemate a few weeks ago. It ended up getting lost in the mess that is my bedroom and I rediscovered it this morning on a epic cleaning session. I know its probably not to everyones taste, it's a bit ugly but nice at the same time. Totally different from the type of thing I would normally buy but theres something about it that I really, really like. I do think its one of those things you need to see on someone and then like it.

My Mums here at the moment so she's watching over me as I type this! We are off out for food but I still haven't decided where we are going yet so Im hoping to just wing it and see somewhere that I might fancy!

  2. Ooo I love your dress, the clashing patterns looks awesome and I love the way you've wore all black and white so the colour stands out. I love the golden outlining of the sleeves also. It is one of those ugly but nice kind of things, but you've definitely made it work xx

  40. I love that tunic, it's amazing! I'm always up for things that you're not sure where they should be on the ugly/ awesome spectrum! I think the majority of the time I end up leaning towards awesome whereas as everyone is definitely over at ugly.
