Grunge & Sparkle… – Yours Truly

I’ve been having one of those busy weeks where everything is happening at the same time, and you have to just go with the flow to keep up with it all! I have however found the time to do a few blog photos along the way!  First off, I thought respond to a comment on my post below. I am like nearly everyone in England right now – wearing a winter coat! But I think we’d both get pretty bored if it featured in every blog post! I have to admit…This January I have splurged. I have splashed out, spent and forked out, as I trawled gleefully through the seasons sale racks.  Winter fashions are always so much more appealing to me. I adore wearing layers, thick cosy fabrics, and interesting textiles (woven or heavily embellished) which are generally speaking, too weighty to wear in the Summer heat.

This beautiful two-tone sequin skirt was a sale find from Topshop.  It’s been one of the key winter pieces in their Winter collection and I was immediately taken by the beautiful design.  However once I considered how much more I could get for £42, I  left it hanging on the rail, until it went into the sale and dropped down to a much more purse-pleasing price!  

My mustard nail polish is from Urban Outfitters (though & Other Stories have a similar colour right now) and the large ring is one that I’ve had for years – I can’t recall where it’s from!

When I have a new garment I love to wear it as soon as possible, as often as possible. So although common sense told me to save this glitzy skirt for an evening out, I dressed it down with a grungey, slightly oversized jumper and my favourite Dr Marten boots!

The only impracticality to speak of was attempting to climb up on to this 3ft ledge! My knees might as well have been glued together! The trail of iridescent sequins I leave in my wake can only be a perk though right?
