My brother says I'm trying too hard...~

Sunglasses - Forever 21
Body top - Motel Rocks
Denim shorts - River Island
Oversized shirt - Motel Rocks R&R (pretty sure that's 'revive and renew'? or something like that...)
Wellies - Cotswold

Just one photo this time. I'm currently in Norfolk and only have my (reluctant) brother to take photos, so yeah, didn't really have much time for many beautiful shots and what-not (unless, of course, i wanted to hear even MOAR of his mean comments on my posing!).

Anyway, this lovely ensemble of mine was put together as my entry for an ASOS Fashion Finder competition. The style criteria is 'festival fashion', and though I have never gone to a festival looking like this before, I imagine/hope this is the kind of thing they were going for. I mean, how out of place would I look as a metal festival looking like this? Far too much colour! xD

Jokes aside though, even though I'm pretty sure it won't do much, please spare a few seconds to give my entry a vote and in doing so make my day!

Oh yeah, and if you're on Chictopia, maybe you could drop by my profile and give some of my looks a vote/comment/favourite? Just a friendly suggestion... ^^

PS.: for those of you still eagerly waiting for my THROW THE GOAT gig review (*ahem* isabel *ahem*), i promise it is on it's way; just sorting out photos and fine details to go alongside it before posting! regardless... sorry for the unwanted suspense! ><

Defying Summer, a.k.a. You Can Never Wear Too Much Black~

I am such a dork; just look at that stupid face and pose I'm making! There's no doubt in my mind that Ama shall be very upset with me using this particular photo for my 'opening statement', as it were, but whateverrr, there's nothing wrong with the photography, just my failed attempt at being funny. ANYWAY, moving on swiftly...

 Dress - Motel Rocks
Belt - Primark
Tights - New Look
Boots - F&F @ Tesco

I hate summer, I really do. I'm really into layering my clothes, so it's been quite a struggle to go against my nature and force myself to wear as little as possible. On top of that, I don't like to expose my legs at all, meaning I have to wear tights all the time, and I'm sure every girl out there knows that black tights + hot, hot sun = BURNING LEGS.

However, I must admit that I have been more prepared for this summer than any other in my life, which is good, and, yes, even though it is black, this dress from Motel Rocks is super perfect for such evil weather, being light, flowy, and just overall easy to breathe in (not to mention suuuper cute!). I also finally got the guts to wear my new-ish cat ears out, which was awesome, and though I got many strange looks from the public (kind of expected, duh), I just kept telling myself that it was my stunning fashion sense that grabbed their attention, so yay to my growing ego! ^^
