NYE











boohoo bralet (white bits taken off)*
H&M heels
michael kors watch

I *think* this is going to be my New Years Eve outfit! Although lets face it, It's subject to change. The unpredictable weather and depending on how I feel in a few hours means I might change my mind. I picked up this blazer in the River Island sale, I was tempted to get it full price when it was in store but Im glad I waited as I only paid £20 in the end. The Bralet is the one I wore to the #Vice10 Party but I took of the white sequins as I felt it was just a bit too much and I'd get more wear out of a plain one. I might also swap the shoes as these ones just aren't working for me. After I lost my favourite black heels on a night out on Cardiff (don't ask, this is a common theme in my life!) I haven't found "the one" to replace them yet!

It's a long story about why my knee's look the way they do, but I really hate them. I don't hide them away, but I cant bring myself to wear those vulgar skin tone coloured tights to make them look less weird! I could easily photoshop them to make them look nice, but Im not all for that false glossy perfection crap! I might Rimmel Sun Shimmer them if I have time before I go out though!

Im off to a party with some of my best blogging (although lets face it they are my "RL" friends) buds- Zoe, Lina & Katie as well as my housemate. For hopefully what will be a night of debauchery and the usual memory loss. 2012 has been good to me, I've met some of the best friends I've had and I've never been happier.

I'll do a proper round up on my thoughts tomorrow about 2012 but until then, have a safe and fun New Year's Eve!  Despite the fact I don't say it half as much as I should, I love you all!

  40. Such a gorgeous grunge glam outfit. I love how you've mixed the red tartan blazer with a sequined bralet. I wanted this jacket when I saw it on sale but unfortunately they didn't have any 10's left :(. x
