A lot of this outfit is new; the shoes, top, clutch and specs. It's a pretty cheap ensemble too - it all comes under €50! These shoes are from ZARA (read about them in my previous post >>HERE<<), both top and skirt are from Pennys/Primark, my clutch is from ASOS from a brand called Blue Q who produce their products from post consumer material (luv u motha naytcha!) and my lovely John Lennon-esque spectacles are a bargain buy off a lovely Asian fellow from eBay.
I came across this denim crop top in Pennys/Primark when I was shopping in Galway city the other day. It's nice to see denim being used as something else rather than a shirt, skirt, jacket or jeans. I suppose that only really leaves a top left to do anyway. My skirt is a buy from back in April, I love the colour, material, shape and it flatters my figure so I was sold. Or rather, it was, to me. mwahaha. So funny.
I think what really makes this outfit is this tropical hummingbird clutch. I reckon it makes this a bit more interesting to look at. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a make up bag of some sort though. Ever since Mary Katrantzou came on the scene I've been wanting original printed bags and clutches, but not so willing to pay the price. Then I spotted this lil gem on ASOS and for the price it was I snapped it up!
TIME FOR SOME GREAT NEWS!
Earlier in the week I discovered that I had been featured in LOOK Magazine; one of the UK's top weekly fashion magazines. LOOK have a website where you can upload your outfits, hairstyles and nail art, then every week they feature fellow fashionistas rocking a certain trend. And with a shock I found myself being featured in this weeks issue in the feature tartan vs checks.
So? Any thoughts?
