This seems to be my favourite going out dress at the moment, I wear it all the time. You really can't go wrong with an LBD, and this one's a little bit different from all my other black dresses because of the sheer sleeves and neckline, and velvety polka dots. I bought it from the Apricot concession in New Look a few months ago. Usually I don't pay much attention to the concession stands as they're generally full of tacky, horrible things but occasionally you do find a hidden gem. I've just had a look on Apricot's website and they also do a bird print version of this dress which I really want (mostly because I think the birds actually look like bats!) but I definitely DO NOT need another black dress in my wardrobe!

I'm letting out my inner goth in this outfit a bit, what with all the skulls and crosses and head-to-toe black. As much as I like cupcakes and flowers and pink things, this outfit definitely reflects another side of my personality. I love all things supernatural and morbidly fascinating, and my taste in music probably isn't what you'd expect from looking at my blog!

This outfit was from Saturday, can't believe it's Thursday already and I haven't got round to posting it. I had my first exam on Monday which went quite well, and since then I've just been revising for the next one. Trying to read the entire works of David Hume in 3 days is not going well!

Do you think your clothes reflect your personality?

  10. I think my clothes sometime reflect my personality but I do like to mix up my looks depending on how my mood is or what I'm in the mood to wear. I think it is definitely hard to gauge what someone is like or what their taste is simply by how they look or dress. I have been told many times that I don't look like I'd like the things I like or be the way I am based on the first impression. Anywho, I love this dress! You are seriously so gorgeous, I adore your hair and your makeup is always perfect.

  13. I think your clothes do reflect your personality... especially with shoes like that! They're fabulous! I have a pair of glittery gold ones but having seen them... I may have to invest in silver too. I love how I feel when I wear them, like a Disney princess on acid! XX
