Diva moment



top: zara
jeans: topshop
boots: zara
necklace: topshop
lips: mac 'diva'
nails: barry m 'raspberry'

This is actually the first time since I've moved down to London that I've made the effort to wear my hair down during work! I usually get up and just screw it on top of my head because otherwise I'll be messing with it all day and end up getting really hot on the tube. I gave it a few waves with my Babyliss curling tong and a spritz of dry shampoo so it had more texture and a bit of volume. I managed to keep it like this for half the day but after so much running around the city it just turned limp! 

I bought this faux fur/ sheer t-shirt from Zara about 2 years ago and I've never seen anything in the store like it since. I don't wear it very often because I think it looks too 'fancy' for during the day, but paired with my Leigh jeans it creates more of a casual style. I've been converted into the world of jeans ever since I bought these the other week. I love the acid wash finish and the fabric is really soft so it doesn't actually feel like you're wearing denim. I also wore my favourite studded boots which tend to kill the balls of my feet but they're just so pretty! 

Today was also the return of my favourite winter lipstick 'Diva'. I used to wear this all the time last year ever since the 'gothic lip' trend emerged and I'm glad it's come back around again! The only problem with wearing a dark shade like this during the day is it tends to smudge when I eat/ drink so needs a lot of retouching throughout the day. However, this will not stop me from wearing it! I also found a really nice dark shade in the Mac Marilyn Monroe collection called 'Deeply Adored' but they've sold out of it everywhere so looks like I'm not getting my hands on that anytime soon!
