Hey there hot-stuff, hope your weekend was more eventful than mine. I spent my Friday night lying on the sofa catching up on Geordie Shore Season 2, when I say "catching up" I'm talking 7 episodes on the trot, with toilet, food & drink breaks only. It was quite an intense evening... My ODD boy-crush on Gaz Beadle blossomed, by the end of my session I felt fully connected with my new group of Geordie-Pals.
The rest of the weekend involved admiring all the amaze Nail-Pics that I've been sent for my Models Own Competition and lots of lazying about... Eating, editing pictures & watching crap-amaze TV.
There was a window of fun however, Saturday was lovely, my girl Gem came round and we hung out and took pics... And got a little philosophical here and there, pourquoi pas?
Outfit Inspiration - Go To Looks
What I wanted to share with you today was a simple layering technique... This is not a new concept from me, I am always banging on about:
- Making the most of your wardrobe
- Experimenting with what you already have
- Mixing it up
I wanted to share a go to look... Well more like 6 looks but all with the same principle & the same key item:
A black American Apparel two tone mini dress this is a dress that I've had for at least 5 years, I would no longer wear it as it is (as I am not very keen on the 2 tone) however, It is a fab layer-base.
- Decent Length - Suiting a range of occasions
- Tight fit - So it's feminine and a little sexy (ugh... gross word)
You can work this item in a selection of ways from super casual to hot-mama... It really is the perfect pull-something-over-me piece.
The tops that I've chosen to layer with are mostly cropped, they're a little short to wear easily with most bottoms, however, they are perfect for pulling over this type of dress & they provide the illusion of a high-waisted look - A look I like!
Top Number 1: This was a gift from an old work colleague, I love the navy/black mix. It's simple but stands as one of my fave tops
Top Number 2: Is a New Look cashmere jumper that shrunk to child-size in the wash, instead of getting rid I use it for exactly this kind of outfit.
Top Number 3: Love this striped number... I bought it when I was 21 (9 yrs ago... Ouch) it has ridiculous holes under the arms, I possibly need to let go but need more time. (To see the holes click here).
Top Number 4: This gorge little Marc Jacobs Cardi was an amazing Beacons Closet (NY) steal at only $10.
Top Number 5: I don't wear this ribbed Topshop top enough and am going to try and incorporate it into another look soon.
Big HUGE thanks to my girl Gem Greaves for taking the pics!! xoxoxooxo
