After watching Pretty Woman last week i have been obsessed with having 'hooker hair' that is leaving my hair to curl naturally in its ginger state like Vivienne. I will be honest in this cold weather I'm not going to wait for my hair to dry all on its own and been going at it with a diffuser (which I haven't used since my hair was 'long' when I was 11 or 12? I still had blond hair so it was a LONG time ago). It's not quite as curly as it can go but it's pretty close- I have the Davey blessing of hair growing out as well as down so it looks like I have put my hand in a plug socket when it is really natural; a mass of ringlets and waves. Plus considering a drop of moisture in the air makes my hair curl, going out with it like this is a lot easier.
To keep my hair reasonably under control I HAD to use my lovely feather bobby pins from Crown and Glory.
I love them :) They are just beautifully made and the bobby pin is quite thick so could even tame my hair. But the best part is that as the feather is placed right at the end of the pin I can maximise the useful part of the pin and still show off all the feather.
In my mind I see the outfit as channelling a bit of Vivienne with the blue skirt and crop, but of course a lot more casual and me (I love black clothing). I wore this outfit for a lazy day around the house and a trip to Sainsburys to buy some ingredients to make me and Chris an amazing meal of Homemade chili noodle soup and satay sauce (just in case the soup was horrible we could dip the ingredients in the sauce). Loved it! Chris actually said it was better than what our local noodle bar offers. Shame it didn't last nearly long enough to have a photo but there will be a next time. Like I have mentioned before, I tend to wear skirts and tights to relax at home and this beautiful galaxy skirt from Boohoo is possibly my favourite at the moment. The material is lovely and soft, relatively warm and just stretchy enough to be both body con and relaxed.
The crop top was just a tee I cut into a crop. I love crop tops and I literally want about 100 more, especially in black. My favourite at the moment are the Linda (I love the mesh sleeves) crop from Motel Rocks, the Diana (I think these is my fav, I just love the shoulder-less-ness and the long sleeves) crop from Motel Rocks, the Zella (its velvet!!) crop from Missguided and the Dayna (which I have seen everywhere) crop from Missguided. I am very happy that this trend has carried over from the S/S season.
