I completely forgot that I'd taken these photo outfits during Saturday before I went to get my Christmas shopping done, too excited to hit the shops once again! Although it was quite chilly and pouring down with rain, I was in the festive spirit and wanted to wear this sparkly white vest. I usually wear this as a dress for nights out as it has a really low scooped back and is quite long in length. I wore it with my grey marl cardigan to keep me cosy and layered my leather gilet on top for a contrasting texture and some added warmth! I usually wear this with the detachable mongolian fur collar but used my sparkly skull scarf instead. I bought this a while ago but the gems kept falling off, they've now released a new version which is darker and the gems are stuck on better so I exchanged it over the weekend, cheeky!

I've turned into a real jeans fan at the moment, these soft Leigh ones are my favourite pair at the moment as they're so comfortable and don't lose their fit. Many jeans tend to go baggy within the first day of wear but as this fabric is stretchy and thin it stays as fitted as leggings would. I also bought the Topshop Leigh black coated jeans and a printed pair from H&M which will feature on tomorrow's blog post.

Over the next few weeks I'm going to start a 'My top...' style post which will basically feature my favourite lipsticks, hair products, foundations, skin products etc of 2012. I'll post these on days when I don't have time in the morning to take photographs for an outfit post so hopefully will get all of the ones I want featured before 2013 looms upon us!
