BLACK MIDI SKIRT






Skirt: River Island
Crop top: DIY 
Creepers: Camden Market (similar here)
Faux Leather Jacket: River Island
Tote: The Look Show
Necklace: eBay

I'm not going to lie I felt AMAZING in this outfit. It was something I thought about and ended up looking EXACTLY how I imagined :) I wanted the skirt to be the main focus of the look so picked a baggy crop to show it off and minimal accessories.

I've started wearing my hair with a bit more blond, I call it the "Debbie Harry". Long ago I realised I will never suit (my natural hair colour) blond but I like this easy transformation.

I originally wanted to wear new buffalo boots  (I'm still mourning there loss) it at least I have a partial refund (anything was better than nothing) and I keep losing bids. There is two pairs I can buy but there a little out of my eBay price range after paying for my holiday this month, so I have to wait a little while. The creepers were not so much a second choice as the right choice, they look perfect with my "idea".

This skirt is not for the faint hearted- it's very clingy. In fact if you have any hang ups about your body at all this is probably not for you. Although is cuddles by legs and bum beautifully (look at that tasty peach) it does the same to my love handles and food baby too. I'll be honest I got stared at constantly (and asked by some 13 year old girls if I was a goth) and I could almost smell everyone thinking that I shouldn't be wearing such a body hugging skirt with my body type but I felt fantastic.

The only downside was its a little but tight around the knees, I nearly fell trying to quickly climb my stairs.

This skirt was a Christmas gift so it's sold out but there is this one from Cameo Rose (at New Look) and this from New Look who look like sisters, or this one from Boohoo.


I'm tempted to wear this skirt for my shoot tomorrow but I'm not sure what with (maybe this Redrock tee?). It's so hard actually planning what to wear :(
