neon skater dress







dress: ebay
jumper: primark
socks: primark
shoes: topshop
rings: asos*, jwlry, love hearts and crosses*
necklace: topshop
nails: models own hedonist*
lips: topshop lipstick in coy
hair: enrapture totem styler 1-3-1 (review here)

Im a girl of very few colours, I seem to limit myself to black and grey and then occasionally pink. But for some reason while browsing ebay one night I saw this neon yellow skater dress and it just had to be mine. Its really bright, like super-day-glow neon-to-the-max-raver-baby-probably-not-appropriate-for-daywear-but-whatever bright! I tried to edit the photos to represent as close to the actual colour as I could, Its still way too lime though. Its more of a highlighter yellow than the lime-yellow it looks in the photos. Neon is ridiculously hard to capture on camera. I still haven't mastered taking a photo of my neon nails that is actually colour accurate! I don't know why but I actually really really like this outfit. Probably a bit out of my comfort zone, and I could probably only wear it as a dress when Im going out and have a epic tan in the summer. But I actually love it! Finally starting to embrace colours? Possibly!

  1. I'm not a massive fan of neon but I do think it looks good with all black outfits like this. Love the necklace, too.

  2. Your hair looks lovely! I must say I will wear something black every day till the day I die, I most certainly am not colourful!

  3. I really, really love this, such a great way to wear the neon trend, much braver than a bag or jewellery or whatever. It really suits you!

  4. Your hair looks so pretty like this. You should do beach waves more often. Gosh, the skater skirt is bright! I don't think I'd have the guts to pull that off! Love the nails though. :) x

  9. Your hair looks gorgeous! The outfit is really really nice too, you always seem to find bargains on ebay and style them in a way that looks really good - I clicked on the link to the dress and didn't think it was that nice in the image they've given but then you see it on you and the way you've teamed it with the jumper has made me really like it :)

  28. Love it to see you in a colour like this as I normally see you in black/grey/pink (no offence, I love that too!) Too bad the seller of these neon dresses doesn't ship to other countries but the UK :(

  30. Idk if you have seen this NL dress which is actually neon green (http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/dresses/limited-neon-cape-shift-dress_245054335) but the length and the neon of your dress reminded me that I spotted (and lusted) over this yesterday - you're inspiring me to save up for it! xo
