Wreckage

Its coming to the end of the year now, that time of year where everyone remembers you simply because its the festive season.. thats right, the international pagan(some what debatable) celebration known as Christmas. Straight after we have the new year – unless you live in China of course – and we all make resolutions the majority of us just do not seem to keep.

Its the time of year I like to reflect, ponder on how much i have grown, how much reconciling I need to do with people I probably shouldn’t give a toss about; but something in my heart makes me want to extend some compassion. Basically, its that time of year of mixed emotions, where I don’t really know how to feel. Often trying to hang on to some awkward sense of joy at a new year, while shaking off the disturbing feeling that its all just a bloody hype and the only thing different about a new year is just that, the flipping year!

With all that said, this is probably the reason for my outfit choice here, those days where you have no idea what to wear, you had one thing in mind but that was a total disaster. I looked in the mirror and said you know what ‘I don’t give a damn what goes and what doesn’t go’. Whatever I dig out is going to work someway, somehow. You can’t really go wrong with black, denim and a bit of leather. Throw it on, own it and work it! Nobody has to know, you literally did throw it together and might as well of gotten dressed in the dark…

Style File: Winter Blues

The sun has gone, the leaves are falling and the temperature has dropped dramatically… but you know me, any opportunity to get my legs out and sport some killer heels! This was supposed to be a birthday post, however, it didn’t work out that way. I put this ensemble together in remembrance of my birthday.

I chose this dress (that a mate of mine left at my house – thanks Mel… ha!) because it is flirty and fun, I am all for that! It is a bit short for winter though, so i threw this long blue coat over the top to give it balance. I picked this coat up from a thrift sale early this year for just £1! Yes that is right only £1… I am in love with it. I love coats with collars I can turn up, I have a thing about feeling badass, a turned up collar adds some edge to any outfit. The massive pockets (along with the price) is what sold it for me with this coat.

So what makes this a post in remembrance of my birthday? Firstly, the dress! My mate wore this to my all white winter wonderland themed birthday party. Granted its actually cream, but that is ok, it worked for her then and its working for me now… hehe. Secondly the hair… this is the new style i had done by my amazing hair stylist Kevin, for my special day. Thirdly the jewellery… One of my sisters gifted them to me as a birthday present. She has an amazing online jewellery store called CherryOnDTop; make sure you check it out, the pieces are stunning (I will be doing a beauty post soon, with a closer look at these pieces). Last but not least, this is in honour of my shoes! They were for my second birthday outfit, but they turned up late smh (shaking my head) – thanks Just Fab – so I had to find an alternative for the night. They are here now and I love them so much I have decided to forgive the web giants.

I wont lie to you, I have not yet worn this outfit out anywhere, I put it together for these photo’s. This is the kind of get up I would rock to an evening dinner on date night, with the assumption I would be sitting in a car for the journey there and back… otherwise I guess I could wear some thigh high boots, in the absence of a car…
