Isn’t this outfit just insanely bright?? With a mixture of this seasons hottest colours, magenta pink and cobalt blue, I kind of feel like I’m being presented in technicolour amongst a sea of black and white when I step out in this outfit. I’m looking forwards to Winter–pastels are really fun and I’ll never stop wearing them, but I also like bold, striking colours and patterns as well–and who can forget my intimate love of hosiery?
Here’s a quick rundown of my outfit today:
Pink Diamonte Zebra Necklace – AliExpress, $5.20
Girls’ Ponti Magenta Dress – Target, $11.16 (down from $25)
Cobalt Blue Cardigan (w/ gold buttons) – Target, $13 (bought a long long time ago but just never worn.. can you imagine??)
Five Crosses Belt – Colette, $6 (in a 50% off sale, woo!)
Gold Skulls Bracelet – eBay, $1 (Alexander McQueen ripoff, I think?)
Sheer Black Pantyhose – Target, 25c
ASOS ‘MIGHTY’ Studded Leather Shoes – ASOS, $30 (I had a 20% off coupon to my account that worked on sale items, WOO! Also accounting for the ASOS currency trick I talked about earlier.)
Technically this necklace doesn’t really go with this outfit (I often wear my Equip gold choker/collar with this combination because it looks more natural) but I have to admit.. I haven’t been able to stop wearing this zebra necklace. It’s gorgeous, amazing, and so detailed–I literally get a compliment about it every time I wear it in public. People LOVE it and so do I!
The shoes are also a little bit of an awesome buy; I was not expecting to be able to wear ASOS shoes at all but they arrived and they fit perfectly. I sized down to a UK6 as advised (I’m an 8.5/39 regularly) and I’m very glad I did! My mother thinks the shoes are a bit masculine because of the studs but I find them pretty cute. It’s also nice to be able to find a mid-heeled shoe of any description that isn’t from the pharmacy, it seems like the only kind of heels available in Australia is dead flat or dead-from-falling-from-such-heights.
By the way, I know where the skull bracelet design originates from, but does anyone know about the origin of the 5-crosses belt?? I’ve noticed it worn by a few other bloggers and seen it available in shops like Dotti and Dissh, but it’s such an unusual design to just be available everywhere for no reason. There must be a designer creator out there somewhere!
