FASHION | Lunch in South Kensington

Yesterday after getting my eyelashes re-did (full post to come), I headed over to South Kensington to meet Arabella for a much needed catch up and some lunch - it sure helped me take my mind off of some of the stressful and upsetting things in my life right now! 

I debuted this pink textured skirt suit, layering up with this fur gillet and thigh highs to keep me warm. What's not to love about a pink suit for me? Exactly. Small was out of stock so I went with medium in this, as you may be able to see on the side shots, the skirt is a little large on the waist but other than that I think it is fine. Sometimes I think being a little bigger can be more flattering anyway, especially when you're my height and don't want to be arrested for flashing! I wanted to go for a pink and monochrome look, so went for this grid print pussybow blouse which I absolutely love.

Sadly my, just turned 7, springer spaniel Alfie was put down last night after a 3 month battle with cancer, so I'm off to cry some more and eat chocolate all day now. I knew I'd be upset but I'm truly devastated, so heartbroken. Although now I'm just trying to be glad he touched my life in such a way and appreciate the time I had with him.

FASHION | Floral brocade-ing in the rain

It's now tradition for me to pair this cut two piece with one of these cacoon coats! I've done it twice before, guilty. It is also the forth colour I own this coat in, guilty. If you were looking at investing (hey, I have pink, blue, mustard and wine...) then do so now as these babies are on some kind of special discount where they're only £20-30! They do come up nice and oversized though, so I size down with the 6 if you wondered which size I take in them.

As you can probably see by my 'wet dog' appearance, it was bloody raining here, and almost dark. I did have nice curly hair but the rain happened and this was the result, doh. 

Being in London makes it so easy to be in the festive spirit, dark evenings made brighter by streets lit up with festive lights and Soho booming with people and Christmas nights out. Because of this I've had to up my party wear game, and my liver has had to man the f*** up. This outfit saw me through from some late night Oxford Street shopping, Soho cocktails and the more hazy journey home. The strong colours really attracted me, and I think the set looked even sassier once dark, as the artificial light reflects perfectly off of the metallic parts. Because I'm familiar with the sizing of these sets, I sized up on the top and got a 10, but stayed with the 8 on the bottom - I have small boobies and still size up one, so do take that into consideration. 

Finally a fluffy pair of heels I can walk in without risk of dying. I mentioned my red pair has a smaller heel, but these are even better as they have the smaller heel and it is a chunkier one. I survived the whole night painless, which I wish I could say about my other fluffy heels!

FASHION | Fluffy two piece of dreams

On Monday night my boyfriend's new band played their first gig in central London, so it gave me an excuse to dress up in some of my new festive party wear! I was however meeting a friend for lunch at 3pm, so I wouldn't have had time to go home and change, so it had to be something not too outrageous for the daytime too. I know this is by no means casual, but if it hadn't been for the daytime suitable-ness, I totally would have gone for fluffy heels too.
This two piece really is a dream, I've been envisioning an outfit like this for a while, so I'm so glad somebody went and made it! The pinky nude version was tempting, but oddly for me, I went for the black in the end! I sized up just incase, but I don't think it was necessary as the material is quite stretchy - the size up wasn't overly big due to the material either!

I picked up this coat back in LFW at a Boohoo event when it was still scorching outside, and recently rediscovered it and fell back in love! As I was wearing this skimpy feather number, this ball of blue fluff was my saviour as I was the only person not freezing my ass off on the walk back home!

I also couldn't resist this iridescent faux croc, with a blue tinge, bag and figured it would be perfect to combine with this coat, or match my more pastel nights out.
