Cardigan with fur collar - Mums wardrobe(!)
Jumper - Zara
Skirt - Zara
Tights - House of Holland
'Climber' Boots - Jeffrey Campbell
Bag - Accesorize
Necklace - Zara Taylor
Rings - LLYMLRS, Tack Shop, Thomas Sabo
Bracelet - Celliana*


I have a love/hate relationship with this bag. I love the oversized style and gold touches, but I almost hate the actual make up of it. For someone who loves zip pockets, compartments and what not, the flimsy clip in lining is annoying! The inside pocket is rendered useless as the weight causes it to pull in on itself. Saying that, it is a tote, and it is a beaut if you don't mind a rummage. 
Also, how awesome are these boots? Almost alternative in style, they're massively under worn, though I'll never be able to bring myself to get rid of them. I love really *different* shoes, the stranger the better. 

I wore this outfit out for a meal. Sometimes I feel like dressing up for the smallest of occasions, just for the fun of it. An all black outfit doesn't have to be uninspired and boring. I've always though that a non-colour palette allows play with texture to such a higher extent, allowing each piece to stand out individually, rather than wearing one statement piece and accessorising. 

Are you a fan of black?

  14. I think that's a fine outfit, it's not outrageously overdressed or too busy, and there's a number of dimensions to it that make it interesting and fun. it flirts with a few styles or genres giving it difference, but most important it looks good, thought through, confident. no such thing as overdressed unless talking old and fusty or fru-fru, and I enjoy dressing up and combining everyday, who needs excuses? love the Sara elements, really like the boots, fab accessories and makeup that i'm rather envious of, but top billing to the fab Henry Holland tights sooo cool. I have them, I love them: wore them with structured black body (with black leotard underneath for figure and warmth, and ultra push bra for serious oomph) and chunky heel booties for Gaga/Jessie look, but froze - needed that fur element you have! great outfit you look good
