Blue Hues.

Tuesday, 26 November 2013


Me, not wearing black?! Quelle horreur! I generally tend to gravitate towards black, navys and dark greys in terms of dress colours, especially during the colder months, but the shade of this Organza Insert Dress from Warehouse almost seemed to whisper "choose me, me, me", i'm blaming my new found love of pastels on Olivia from What Olivia Did (That girl can rock pastels like no other!). And in true Sade fashion, i've been ignoring the -1 degree Midland winds and braving the cold with bare legs and icicles for toes. Ironically, when it was warm i avoided skirts and shorts, but now i can't go a day without flashing a bit of ankle or leg and Warehouse with their collection of dresses are enabling me to do so, they just keep hitting the nail on the head in terms of fit, colour and style. I also have my eye on this dress here which i'll probably nab for my Christmas parties with my Warehouse voucher from the Company Magazine Blogger of The Week competition.
Pastels were everywhere at Fashion Week and months later, i've finally attempted to try the trend and i think i'm actually liking it!  I love pastel colours on my nails, but wearing it all over is another story. It's like wearing white, I love it but I simply admire from afar as i'm too scared that i'll spill something on myself. Maybe this is the start of me wearing brighter colours?
I offset the pastel with black and my trusty £1 navy coat from East End Thrift Store and paired it with some jewellery the awesome ladies over at Sour Cherry were kind enough to send me. Their jewellery is wonderfully quirky but also very affordable, think Tatty Devine without the tear inducing price tags!

P.S what do you think of the photos? My friend Marcos who was in this post is a wicked cool photographer and helped me with these. I absolutely love the quality, so much better than my vintage Pentax! 
Anyway, it's back to dissertation writing (crying into my books and screaming at my laptop) anyone else in third year totally losing their marbles over grades?! Oh my goodness, it's ridiculous! I find i spend most of my time reading, typing, model making and photoshopping everything and anything that seems vaguely architectural. I can't wait for the academic side of university to end! 

As always, have a fantastic week! P.S My giveaway ends in a few days! Enter quickly here!
