Daily outfit 16/9/2013

One  thing I’m finding tricky about moving house is finding a new place to take outfit photos.  I’ve been dragging my camera all over the house and yard to scout possible locations for daily outfit shots.  So far I’ve found a couple of potential spots that will work depending on the weather.  I’m very lucky because my flat gets a lot of sunlight, so if it’s a bright day I can take pictures indoors.

However, today was quite overcast and any indoor photos were coming up horribly grainy.  So I had to retreat to the backyard for a photoshoot.  I was happy with how these pictures turned out.  However, while I was posing, I noticed that the elderly gentleman who lives next door to me was peering over his fence with a puzzled look on his face.  No doubt he was wondering what on earth the girl-next-door was up to, prancing about in sequins and a turban.  Clearly he hasn’t visited my blog before.  Perhaps I should slip one of my cards into his letterbox?

DSCF8827I am wearing:

– Red sequinned jumper (thrifted)

– Black turban from Ruby vintage

– Black harem pants from Target

– Red socks from ASOS

– Green loafers from Rubi shoes

– Brown resin ring (thrifted)

– Silver swirl ring

– Beetle ring (gift from my parents)

Black cat earrings from Sisunyak

DSCF8828It was such a grey day that I needed to add a bit of colour and sparkle to my outfit.  Then I went nuts and added loads of sparkle.  And even more colour.


The weather has been really unpredictable lately.  Last weekend I took a walk down to the lake in a flimsy summer skirt and a tank top.  Today I’m wearing long socks, thermals and woolly knits all over again.  Go figure.


DSCF8833I am also wearing a new lippy in these pictures.  I decided to treat myself to a new lipstick just before I moved house.  This one is Goodbye from the Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball range.  It’s a beautiful sheer wine colour and I love it. It’s completely different from every lipstick I own and I’ve been wearing it quite a lot.  It’s really moisturizing and it tastes slightly of coconut.

DSCF8837How cute are these kitty earrings?  They were a birthday gift from my parents and I think they’re fantastic.  They’re just a little bit quirky without being too over the top.

DSCF8838I had to cut all my nails short while I was moving because they kept breaking on me during the packing-and-lifting process.  They’re slowly growing back though.  I’ve been going sans nail polish the last few weeks to give my nails a rest, but with Spring just around the corner I’m reading to start splashing out with some bright shades again.

So that was my very first outfit post from my new flat.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as my neighbour enjoyed watching me mince about in the backyard.
