Pretty Pink PVC

About three weeks ago I was scrolling through a couple of  clothes websites (again...) and I found this amazing pink PVC skirt on missguided that I couldn't resist buying! After wearing it out at the weekend I realised that I wouldn't really get much use out of it in the day time unless I came up with a more toned down, appropriate look. So that's exactly what I did, hope you like it!

Bomber Jacket - Mango
Shirt - Asos
PVC skirt - Missguided
Socks - Ebay
Shoes - Daisy Street

I've tried to tone down the skirt  by adding a high-neck shirt which kind of balances it up since the skirt is quite short and very shiny and... PVC-ish. Adding the bomber jacket can give it a more casual feel but it's also perfect in the lead up to Summer as it's not too thick but still keeps you quite warm. I saw these beautiful flatforms on Daisy Street and couldn't resist buying them, they are so comfy and still give me some height which is great at only 5ft 3". Sometimes I find that the jelly shoe type material can rub on your feet and make them quite uncomfortable, so I purchased these fish-net socks from ebay - making socks and sandals acceptable!

Nautical Notion

I've been meaning to blog about this particular item for a while but I've never found the time until now, so here it favourite dress at the moment! 

Day Look
Dress - Topshop
Shoes & Bag- River Island
Jacket - Zara

Night Look
Dress - Topshop
Clutch - Accessorize
Shoes - Asos

While I was in London in February I visited the Topshop flagship store and considering it is a 90,000 square foot store filled with clothes there was no way I was leaving empty handed! This was one of my purchases, an A-line striped dress from the petite section which has quickly become one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe. The reason for this is that I love the fit and shape of the dress but also the feel of the satin fabric and how it can easily be worn either dressed up or down.

About a month later I spotted a picture of Beyonce wearing the same dress while out in London. Being a massive fan of Beyonce I was excited just to own a piece of clothing that she has worn or has in her wardrobe but it also shows that even celebs are fans of the high street. At £70 I think this dress is definitely worth the money, but unfortunately it sold out really quickly online so I'm glad I purchased it when I did, even if I did come back from London spending way more than I had planned...
