So, it’s October and it’s still not cold enough for a coat? What’s that all about? Well, it’s raining today in Brighton but yesterday it was another super sunny day, fresh with a cold air but still no need for boots or a coat. We headed to the local park so that Miz could practise sliding on the skateboard and we grabbed a few photos of my latest dress purchase from Dr. Martens. Although this dress was purchased as part of their Summer collection, it’s clearly more of a Winter number which I’m pretentiously going to label as transitional. I’m SO fashion.
The dress is gorgeous, it’s a brushed cotton tartan which buttons through with pearly buttons, the skirt is pleated and it has some skinny belt loops which I’ve filled with a Forever 21 red skinnny belt which has start shapes punched out of it. I’ve accessorised with burgundy coloured cable knit tights and my beat up Converse. The bag is a fox/owl depending on which way you look at it and you can find this all over the internet! I’ve stolen the hat from Miz, I don’t know where it was from originally.
The dress was quite pricey at around £65, but it’s such a classic and lovely soft fabric that I think it’s totally justified. Plus, it fits me really well with a good skirt length too. It’s totally worth spending a bit more on something if you love it, especially if the quality is good as you know you can keep it in your wardrobe for years and still whip it out when you need a staple, easy to wear item.
My Sugar & Vice solar system necklace fits perfectly with the colours in the tartan so I think it’s a great choice to go with it, this beauty gets ALOT of wear! Make up wise, I’m wearing Lime Crime Velvetines in Red Velvet on my lips and a metallic green liner from Kiko Cosmetics for eyeliner flicks. You can’t really see them here but I’ve got blue/green ombre brows using Sugarpill. My base is a mixture of Smashbox BB Concealer and Balance Me BB Cream.
