The New Start

Dress: Lavish Alice*; Coat: Dorothy Perkins; Shoes: House of Fraser*; Bag: eBay;

Nervous and embarrassing or what? This was way out of my comfort zone but I wanted to start taking outfit photos outside a lot more as I’ve noticed ever since I’ve moved into my flat, the light source wasn’t that great and can tell that the quality isn’t up to scratch since I needed to photoshop it to brighten it up etc. This was also to help get my confidence back and to boost it. So plucking up the courage and with the help of my trusty tripod and digital camera, these photos were born. The quality is immaculate if I do say so myself! I was debating whether to add a watermark or not?

Please excuse the 2 inch roots. I have decided to be a tramp and not dye it until I know what my next exact, perfect hair colour should be. Been contemplating on a dark blonde, light brown but it does have its disadvantages especially when the roots peep out again. I could always let my hair grow out but we shall see.

I wore this outfit to my brother’s graduation however I ended up packing the wrong heels. I had worn ones that were the least comfortable and wished I was more organised. Had a blast and not looking forward to seeing the dreaded family photo. Here is a bonus picture of my sister and I having fun with balloons.

Who says you cannot find amazing sandals that are affordable under £30 at the House of Fraser? I had picked up these neon pink ones and they are Steve Madden footwear. Originally £65, they were reduced to £19. Yes you’ve read it right! £19 Steve Madden shoes! They also stock brands that aren’t higher end such as Dorothy Perkins, Evans. The sale is also your best friend. Don’t be afraid to shop at the House of Fraser.

P.S. Why does my tan look a tad orange? Too much Spanish sun maybe?
