Happy Shiny People


Seeing as it's been rather windy here in London lately, I've been opting for outfits least likely to show off my bottom!  Generally it's been heavy weight dresses/skirts or leggings.  I then remembered I have these fabulous Lycra/Shiny leggings.  The pictures below aren't the best but you can see the shininess in the above picture better.

The earring pictured above is also one of my favourites, although it's quite a chunky piece, and a masculine piercing, I think this earring is particularly feminine - what do you think?

I quite like this outfit and I'm not too sure why as its pretty basic.  Maybe its the splash of colours in the accessories or the kind of rocker chic vibe going on.  What do you guys think?
Top - Topshop, Vest Top, Leggings & Turquoise Ring - H&M, Leaf Ring - Aldo, Boots & Necklace - Primark, Headscarf - Brick Lane Market

When I started this blog I thought it would help me determine and define my style, but looking back at all my various outfits so far, it seems I have a real mish mash style - I pick up on trends but don't necessarily follow them, I like specific styles but don't stick to one in particular - I just go with the flow depending on what I feel like at the time or what I like in the shops.  And you know what? I bloody love it! I know not everyone will like my style or agree with me, but hey.

What about you guys and dolls? Do you have a particular style? Or do you cross all style grounds?  And what do you think of it?

I've been working late loads recently, but after my last craft post I'm in the mood for making.  So when I'm free, I'll be crafting a lot more and finally share with your my 'M' I bought two weekends ago.

I love that feather ring. I have a similar one in gold, although.. I think I lost it. I'm terrible at losing jewelry!

Thank you very much for the comment dear. To answer your question: the photos are taken with a canon mark II and some of my other post are taken with a sony a200. To edit, I use photoshop.

I love the stripped top and the scarf, both perfect pieces! I absolutely love your blog, and I'm glad I found it! Consider me your newest follower!

It is ridiculously windy here too, and I'm gutted because I brought a couple of lighter weight dresses back to uni after Easter. I could wear them with a cardigan in the current temperatures, but the wind has put paid to that.

Liking the leggings and adore your earing too.

I think you've got the best of everything by wearing what *you* want rather than limiting yourself to only current trends. I've found since I started blogging that my style hasn't really changed that much, but I am more conscious of wearing exactly the same combinations all the time, and that's been brill as I now put a bit more thought into how I wear my clothes and get more out of them.

What a cool mix of patterns and styles. And you're totally right about the earring. It adds a great edge.

Hmmm, my style changes all the time. But deep down I'm a 90's grunge baby from way back.

Claire said...

Love that necklace- what a statement piece! I have to say I'm not sure I have one particular style either, it really depends on the day and my mood, and what I can find in my huge mess of a wardrobe! xx

Vintage Vixen said...

Hello! I love that ethnic breastplate and your divine ring. Your outfit isn't basic just a brilliant canvas for your splendid accessories.
It's been ludicrously windy here, too. Sign there's a bank holiday in the offing. x

Hannah said...

Oh, I do love all those bold, vibrant accessories! :)

I don't think I have a truly defined sense of style. I make do with my tiny wardrobe as best as I can and pick up inspiration from bloggers here and there. I do find though that I'm more drawn to certain styles than others, but I try not to stick to one thing in particular :)

figo said...

Sweet post, I really like the scarf in your hair!
My style's a little all over the place, I like trying out new things so my look pretty much changes from one day to the next but the thing I like most is adding a touch of quirkiness with acessories ;)
