The Heart is Hard to Translate

Maxi Skirt (Worn as Dress): TK Maxx. Cardigan: Clothing at Tesco.
Belt: Vivienne Westwood. Wedges: Kurt Geiger.

My first full length outfit shots! I think I look really short in these though, I'm not.
I saw a blog post by Mara where she had a hairstyle similar to this and I had to give it a go. This is my first attempt and I've done nothing to the ends but I think if I perfected the victory roll and curled the rest of the hair it could be a great look for the Christmastime :)
This skirt was a true TK Maxx find, £3! I love it as a skirt too, but I thought it looked cute with the belt as a dress too. I ordered the wedges with my £25 Kurt Geiger voucher from Elle Magazine, I thought I'd save them for summer but now I have them I think they can be 'wintered' up a bit. They are so comfortable. You have no idea how muddy it is today though, I nearly slipped over about 20 times taking these photos.
This watch would totally complete the outfit though.. HINT to anyone who's reading and stuck for what to get me for Christmas :D

I wanted to let everyone know about the My Street Chic Christmas Party which is open to all bloggers over the age of 18 and I know is going to be a great night. It's on Friday 16th December at Java in Bristol. I really love working with My Street Chic, everyone there is so passionate about fashion and the site concept, I know they're going to put everything into this party to make it amazing. Tickets are £5 which is cheap anyway but you also get a free drink on arrival, a fab goodie bag, and entry into the club after the party. There will be a fashion show by Boohoo and I've been assured that they'll be an abundance of cheesy tunes to dance to as well :). There's only 100 tickets in total so click here to buy yours. I'm really excited for it and already planning my outfit!

  7. You look amazing. I love the mix of netural tones and textures!

    And that sounds like so much fun. If I didn't have to be on a plane 7am at Heathrow the next morning I'd seriously have to think about a trip up for the party. :)

  12. You look so pretty Emma! Please teach me how to rock a red lip, I'm honestly like a child when it comes to matters like these. I love the skirt/dress, especially with the knotted belt, and I wish I was coming the SW Meet/Party. Blimmin' Uni and their awkward assignment deadlines... xx
