Pantone Colour of the Year (2014):
blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, emanates great joy, love and health
My first outfit post for the year! Sorry it took so long - I had a bunch of other outfits sitting in my drafts, but I really wanted this to be the first so I waited until I had time to drag my sister out to take a few pictures :D
A look inspired by Pantone's colour of the year. Purple is one of my favourite colours. It's royalty, elegance and girly-ness rolled into one. I think any skintone can pull off this one! Yet, I have very little purple in my wardrobe - this dress is one of my only ones! I bought it about 2 years ago and only probably wore it twice...oops :/ Could never find the right occasion to wear it! I remembered getting it because I might be going to a garden/tea party - what was I thinking?! Nevertheless, I should really let it see daylight more often.
With purple dress, purple (well, more like magenta) nails and purple eyeshadow (which you can't really see!) I decided to wear my new ASOS strap heels which is now reduced in the sale for only £11.50! Considering I got it for about £15, that is an absolute bargain. It's a tad taller than what I'm used to,
but I don't have a nude/neutral pair of heels, I'm small so... oh well, I just need practice!
By the way, this set of 8 vintage-y rings with different words inscribed on them is my new favourite purchase! And
they're super cheap too! I love wearing them all at once and stacking them up even though my sisters think I'm
crazy :P For a no-fuss and quick solution when my hair decides it's in a bad mood, all I do is just clip my front
hair to back with a claw clip and...voila. Problem solved.
Also,I am aware that the flower I'm holding is not an orchid, but since I couldn't find one, a hibiscus would
have to suffice :P
Lastly, I have mocks beginning Monday, which I'm dreading! Help?
On a brighter note, I reached 1000 Bloglovin' followers about 2 days ago! Yayyyy! Thank you guys so much

is out of the way (: THANK YOU!
