This morning i've been experimenting with a few outfits, trying to find a cute one for tomorrow night. Whilst doing so I remembered that I mentioned a few weeks ago on my Tumblr that I wanted to do a new feature on this blog, where I show you how I would style certain items. So I thought i'd start today by showing you how I would personally wear a pair of platform "sneakers". They are not to everyone's taste i'm sure, but I think they are cool!
First off if you are looking for a pair, here's a few which are reasonably priced:
So here is how I styled mine. Firstly with a pencil skirt, I literally live in them at the moment as they're soo comfy, versatile and a cute alternative to print leggings! I also included my black wig for a couple of the photos; though I am not sure on it as I think it makes my face look too long and thin! What do you think?!
As you can tell my hair is still looking awful, rooty and faded. I am planning on going back blonde and getting permanent extensions, but am really considering dying it a different bright colour, like purpley blue, lilac or mint!
For my next outfit I paired the shoes with my new favourite leggings! I have been lusting over these for so long, and went into town hoping i'd find them in my local Topshop, but unfortunately they were nowhere to be seen. I hate paying £4 for postage online but it was the only way i'd get these before they sold out. Here I am yet again wearing a poloneck, I simply cannot get enough of them! I think they are a great alternative to a plain black vest top, especially with print leggings when you need a plain coloured top. I picked this up in a charity shop yesterday for £3, it is a fluffy knitted material with glitter weaved in it, really cute!
As I mentioned above, I did a spot of charity shopping yesterday on my way home from uni. It really annoys me how all of a sudden charity shops have gotten so expensive. They're definitely getting too big for their boots, just because they're getting more popular doesn't mean they have to charge ridiculous prices for second hand clothes. It really puts me off buying! I simply CANNOT wait for the car boot sales to start again, I will definitely be sacrificing a Saturday night out so that I can get up early on a Sunday to bag some bargains! Here's what I bought:
Green shirt - £3, poloneck - £3, cable knit jumper - £5, dress - £3, grey maxi skirt (not pictured) - £4 all from a charity shop.
