Voodoo Girl

As usual I was browsing on ASOS for things I can't afford, and I've seen this brand a few times with pieces that have really caught my eye on the ASOS site. So I thought I'd take a look at the brand as a whole, not only on ASOS but on their official website too and put together a little 'wishlist' of things that I think are quite unique, versatile, staple pieces, etc. I'm going to link all of the products you can see in the picture below it too :)

(Rushed) OOTD 22.5.2013

Hey guys, I'm waiting on one of my pieces from New Life to dry then I'll be photographing them all and be getting that post up ASAP! Till then, I'm going to share a super quick OOTD post.
Sorry the picture quality is terrible, like I said, it was a very rushed picture taken from my webcam with my laptop being balanced on my hamster cage...

Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Shade 004 Boots £5.49, Vintage Necklace unknown, White Crop Top Topshop £6, Green Leggings Forever 21 £5, Jack Jones Plaid Shirt (boyfriends), Green Parka ASOS £16

I also decided to style my hair very differently from usual, as it was a fairly humid day so didn't want my hair all down my back. To achieve this, I gathered my hair up, separating a few shorter pieces on either side near the front along with my fringe, and tied the rest up in a really high top knot. I then pulled bits of the hair forward so as they would cover my slightly-sticky-out ears, and voila, a really easy, alternative way to put your hair up on days where you just don't have the time to style it down etc.

My general feelings towards college displayed very visually... Here you can also see the shade of the lipstick a lot lot better.

Eveing OOTD

Me and my best friends Amber and Shannon went out to celebrate Shannon's 18th birthday on Saturday night, and made a big deal about getting dressed up for our first night out together.

A picture of the three of us together before we left for the night out, the birthday girl looked fantastic and Amber looked gorgeous as usual.

I am absolutely in love with this outfit and I'm so glad I finally got a chance to wear it out. I was after this dress off ASOS, saved up for it for a couple of weeks, went to buy it and it was out of stock in my size, I was gutted. However, the following week I went to Clothes Show Live in Birmingham and at the Vero Moda stand, there it was. I also managed to get it with a discount, it was supposed to be 18 but I snatched it up for 15! I don't actually know where the necklace was from, it was Amber's. It is a multilayered gun metal silver spike necklace which really complimented the glitter on the dress. I paired the dress with some black frill socks that have a little black bow at the back, bought from Internacionale for about 3, another bargain considering how much the frill socks are in the likes of Topshop and Urban Outfitters. For heels I was torn between my plain black suede wedges and my spike brogue wedges, but opted for the spike brogues in the end which gave the outfit more of an alternative feel with the help of the spike necklace. I'll definitely be trying to get this outfit out of my wardrobe a lot more often as it did turn a few heads over the course of the evening. It was an amazing night and I love my girls to pieces! :)

I'll be posting a mini haul very very soon guys so I'll be keeping you posted on when that goes up. Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine we've been getting lately.
