Outfit Post: Disco Pants and Crop Top with Purple Make Up

Ok, so this is something I thought would never happen! Me wearing American Apparel  Disco Pants AND a crop top, in PUBLIC and not as a joke. Seriously, three months ago this is totally the type of outfit that would a.) terrify me and b.) would be the subject of ridicule from me and here I am now, wearing skin tight, flesh exposing outfits and feeling awesome in it. Totally mental.

DSC_2872I’m wearing American Apparel Disco Pants which I original tried on as a joke, because I thought it would be funny to tweet a picture of me wearing them, since everyone knows my feelings about leggings and disco pants (prior to the revelation) and then once I put them on I had to have them. They make me feel like Sandra Dee, that’s such a good thing.

DSC_2876My top was a complete bargain from River Island, it was only £10! Yay! I bought it because I needed something to wear with the Disco Pants and wanted to try something more fitted and out of my comfort zone. My necklace is an old favourite, from Lady Luck Rules Ok, who remembers them? They were my favourite jewellery brand for years, so sad when they closed down.

DSC_2873Here’s my new shoes too. I had some flat ones of these as a kid, I think everyone did right? I was never allowed heels so I couldn’t resist buying theses JuJu Jellies heels in clear plastic with silver glitter. They are pretty comfortable, but will rub a bit, so it’s be prepared for that if you’re in bare feet. Another thing for me, I would never wear shoes without socks normally.


My earrings are vintage glass grapes, I wear these loads and bought them from a antiques shop near Hampton Court Palace for about £3. I love them. My make up was completely done by the wonderful Andrew James MUA, who has been staying at my house over the weekend for his first visit. I let Andii do my make up how he wanted to, so actually got changed to match it. So, I’m now going to show you the make up and try to get him to remember all of the products that he used!

Skin- bareMinerals SPF 20 Advanced Protection Moisturizer,  bareMinerals Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream, Benefit Stay Flawless Foundation Primer, Illamasqua Skin Base in Shade 3, bareMinerals Mineral Veil.

Lips- Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Purple and Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Poisonberry.

  1. hubba hubba!! If you can make it on Saturday please don’t wear this as you’ll put me to shame and I may have to steal you and take you home.

    Also your blog posts are written in such a FUNNER way lately, if that makes sense, you sound really happy!

    1. Thank you! I’m feeling pretty confident at the moment, I do bloat easily, so wasn’t feeling so comfortable in this combo after lunch.

  3. Jelly shoes! Haven’t seen those in years, haha.
    You look great, I love the clash of your hair against the purple of the disco pants.

  4. You look incredible in disco pants! Very Sandra Dee indeed, so glad that Andii is having such a great first trip to London can’t wait to hear all about it next time I see him!

    Also I used to love Lady Luck Rules Ok! I was gutted when they closed Down, I still have a lipstick lightning bolt charm kicking about somewhere 🙂

    1. I have so much LLROK jewellery, I might do a nostalgic post on it all at some point, I used to love buying the lucky bags. Me and Andii are having so much fun, I’m sure he’ll have loads to tell you when you next hang out.
