Anyway, this is my outfit of the day. I thought this would be a good opportunity to show you all my new tasselled bag that I bought last week.
I also bought this lipstick today too. I am not al that great on judging make up, my friend likes it, I'm not so sure, what do you all think?
Top and feather earrings - Newlook, Skirt and tassel bag - Ark, Boots - Jeffrey Campbell, Watch - Fossil, Above knuckle rings - Kukee, Spiked ring and skeleton necklace - Miss Selfridge, cross earring, skull ring and leather bracelets - Topshop, skull bracelets - Spun Out, Charm Bracelet - Pandora.
Gosh I didn't realise I was wearing that much!
Anywho, I spent an age looking for a tassel bag like this, only to find that they had sold out everywhere, but I finally found one!
I thought I would do a close up on my jewellery today as I realised I didn't actually have any decent photos of my above the knuckle rings from Kukee, who are amazing by the way. I've said that before, but I am still raving!
On another note, because my posts have got a bit repetitive recently, I thought I would write about a few things that are really exciting me at the moment.
Leather! - Incase you can't already tell, I am fully embracing the leather trend full on, (possibly too early, as it is soooo hot!) and wearing it constantly. The slightly gothic trend that has been hitting the glossies for the last 2 months is making me so excited for the change in seasons and the winter ahead! Never EVER thought I would say this, but bring on the cooler weather so we can all embrace our inner bikers and goths and don leather!
Pastel Hair! - So excited to see that this is a trend that will be sticking around for the next season! I would probably have kept it up a bit longer anyway, but it is nice to be Elle approved ;)
Major hair envy.

Patent/waxy garments! - Anything with a slightly fetishy feeling to it is alright with me!
This seriously cool dress is by Jill Sander, and I have to say, I wouldn't have the guts to wear it, I freaken' LOVE it!

Suits! - Personally I don't think I will ever be able to pull off this classic wardrobe staple, and I seriously envy people that can. Maybe in a few years when I am a grown up and no longer wear spiky shoes and have normal coloured hair I might invest... Maybe.
A suit in red velvet?! What's not to love?!

Tartan! - I am loving this trend, but I can't help but think I might wear it more in a punky sense than the scottish!
Loving this shirt from Ark! Studded boots, leather trousers and stacked bracelets, the glamorous punk look nailed!

As excited as I am about the next season, I can't help but cringe at some trends, such as jewel embellishment, I can't help but think that it looks tacky. Even in the pages of Vogue, garments in this trend just remind me of something I would have worn as a little girl that had been pulled out of the dressing up box. I can't help but wonder what a catastrophe will be made of this trend on the high street.
Another major pet hate for me is the new 'lower heel.' I can understand I guess for practical reasons, the desire to buy a shoe like this, but I think unless it is sky high, it isn't worth doing!
Both big no nos in my opinion, but what do you think?
So at this point I was also going to add a youtube link of one of my tunes of the moment, but for those of you who are new to reading my blog, you should know that I am severely technologically challenged and I couldn't make it work. So if any of you could tell me how to do it, I shall try to put one on my next post!
Now I am off to bed as this post took me quite a bit longer than I thought it would, so I am going to chill with a film and catch up on reading Vogue!
Are you guys doing anything exciting this week?
Au revoir, toodle pip!
