Grafea Photoshoot

Sunday, 14 December 2014
Coat: Boohoo | Playsuit: Bank Fashion | Heels: New Look | Bag: Grafea | Rings: Holly Molly* and Pylones | Sunglasses: Asos

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by Amy from Grafea to do a photoshoot with one of their gorgeous leather rucksacks. I agreed, of course!

We met up in the Northern Quarter and shot around the alleys and streets there. There was plenty of traffic (human and vehicular), but I'm overall quite pleased with the shots Amy managed to snap! What you see here is just a small sample of the number of photos we took.

It was freezing cold, and it didn't help that I was braving it in bare legs and heels! Amy was absolutely lovely, though, and directed/composed the shots well. I really wished I could have kept the baby rucksack we used for the shoot, but alas, it's made of genuine leather and really does not come cheap! I had a look at it, though, and the material is amazing to touch and very sturdy. I've had my eye on one for ages, and am definitely getting one for myself once I've saved up enough money.

Also, the purple graffiti in the photos has now been covered up, sadly - in fact, some constructors began to board it up during the shoot! Wasn't it a nice contrast to the outfit I was wearing?

edit: I am currently in Spain for a short holiday, will be updating the blog when I get back xx

OOTD: Forest Green

Turtleneck: Pull & Bear | Dress: Urban Outfitters | Boots: Asos | Watch: tickintorque* | Hat: H&M

As the weather gets colder, I start to pile the layers up! Manchester hasn't had any snow thus far, but it did hail very suddenly a couple of days back. I was lucky enough to snap a few photos before it got too bad, though!

I'm still feeling very sixties-inspired with my ensemble here, the roll-neck top/shift dress combination is just too chic to pass up. The V-neck dress shook things up a bit with the unique cut and colour, though, and feels super Christmassy! What do you think? x

OOTD: Fur Trim Dress

Coat: boohoo | Dress: boohoo | Sunglasses: Asos | Bag: Asos | Shoes: Hidden Fashion

Finally, an outfit post! I've been swamped with events the past couple of weeks, which I've been blogging about, but have managed to capture everything I've been wearing lately. Like I've mentioned before, faux fur is really in this season, and why not? It's super cute and warm, and makes for an interesting texture to spice up any outfit.

I wore this navy fur trim boohoo dress to Rock on Ruby's Christmas party last weekend, and I could hardly believe how flattering it was! I usually shy away from bodycon dresses because I get a little self-conscious about my body, but this fit me like a glove and somehow made me look slimmer. Loads of people loved it and asked me where I bought it from (I think I even convinced a blogger friend to buy one)! I braved the weather with some bare legs, I couldn't do the dress an injustice and clomp around in tights, but did try to have some 'protection' with a long coat.

The dress is in stock in white and black snap it up if you can, it's so worth it! x
