Another outfit from last week, featuring a new Choies blazer! As you may have gathered from some previous posts I’m a fan of orange at the moment, and this pale tangerine shade is perfect and summery. This particular colour is currently sold out, but you can keep your eye out for restocks or purchase it for a very reasonable £19.79 in one of the other five colours – I think white or pink would be my next choice! The blazer comes with shoulder pads, however I’ve removed mine for a more relaxed look. I wore it with a piece from the latest Rihanna x River Island collection – I’m not a Rihanna fan but I have been very much impressed by both of her River Island collaborations so far, save for a few more “interesting” pieces (those double jeans?!). I love this print and hope to acquire some more of it, but at £20 this dress (which is technically a top, but long enough to be a mini-dress for average height or petite ladies) was a no-brainer. I’m also wearing my favourite new MissGuided boots, Fashion Nonsense spiked necklace and a skull bangle from Chicnova. PS: how cute is the wallpaper in the hallway of my new flat?! Perhaps a post about it / mini tour is in order?
Getting dressed up for a night out doesn’t mean you have to wear heels! For those of you who struggle to endure a whole night in 5″ platforms, spiked or studded flats are a great alternative. I’m wearing the Studded Flat Shoes* from Missikon – they look amazing and are practical for a night out as well as being easy to dress down for a day-time look. I would strongly advise buying a size up from your usual in these, because they are small fitting.
My top is the Gold Sequence Dress*, also from Missikon, and I have tucked it into my trusty black American Apparel Disco Short.

These shoes are insane, as anyone can see! Size-wise they’re quite small-fitting, I would recommend going half a size down if possible. They aren’t too difficult to walk in if you’re used to heels, but the sole is very narrow so I personally am probably going to save these for evenings out which involve more sitting down, meals and parties for example, rather than nights out in clubs as I wouldn’t want to go over on my ankle!
Yesterday morning I received this gorgeous playsuit courtesy of Motel, just in time to wear it to my boyfriend’s sister and her husband’s post-wedding party! I chose the Valentine Open Back Playsuit in Floral Navy Pink Rose – I absolutely love the print and the unique structure of the playsuit which appears almost like a matching top and shorts and features a pretty cut out triangle in the lower back.
Here I’m wearing it with opaque black tights and pink spiked glitter flats from Romwe, but it could easily be made more casual with a denim jacket and platform trainers or dressed up more with big chunky heels and bright accessories.
The playsuit is from Motel‘s new AW12 collection, check out the collection video below along with more of my photos.
