This post is my 100th!! I did plan to do a give away but I only have two bits to give and I want to get a few more before I do – otherwise it wont be much of a give-away! So I am now planning to do a give away for my 111th! Just because it’s a cool number!
So instead of a give away I am celebrating my 100th post by wearing an outfit that was picked for me by Elizabeth from the state i am in as part of my Dress Monkey challenge. Even though she makes me feel ancient (she’s 10 years younger than me!) Elizabeth and I have a fair bit of fashion style in common and I am really interested in her degree – sounds fascinating! If you want to know more go check out her blog (if you don’t do already!)
I bought this skirt in early November after seeing Amy from Wolf Whistle in this outfit and started lusting after a hitch skirt. This gorgeous black one from ASOS was the only one close I could find. It also comes in Khaki – but that colour tends to make me look unwell. I had never considered pairing it with the red cardigan but it looks cool! Although in hindsight I should have worn a black vest under the lace one – oh well! The skirt has a fairytale quality about it and I felt like I was in a fancy dress costume today – like a Gothic flower fairy (I’ve obviously have too much imagination!). I also love the grunge look of a pretty skirt and big biker boots – mixes my two worlds perfectly!
The hair also decided to behave today. Doesn’t look too bad considering I haven’t washed it since Monday morning and its been sprayed to death with dry shampoo! I am trying to take Messy Carla‘s advice and not wash it as much to retain the colour…
