I gave my wardrobe a massive clear out yesterday and managed to get rid of around 50% of my clothes which I have hoarded over the years. I always think 'Ooo but I'll wear that when it gets warm' but I never do, by that time I've got something new and completely forgotten about it! When I move back home after London, I realised I would have a struggle trying to fit all my clothes back into one place so this was necessary. I am also putting a load of clothing on my Ebay site including loads of French Connection sample dresses I got whilst working there. I've realised that I'd much rather have the money to buy new clothes than watch old ones sit in my wardrobe! I'll post a link over the next few days once they are all uploaded and ready to sell.

I attended a lovely family meal last night and wore this simple contrast panel dress I bought a while ago from River Island. The black contrast panels make it quite flattering on the figure and I love the grey marl fabric of the body. I wore it with some thick black tights due to this ridiculously freezing weather and my lace-up boots which I can't take off at the moment! I don't think they have many left in store but they are still available on line. I really cannot recommend a pair of shoes more, they are so comfortable and can be worn with so many different styles. I also wore this statement necklace which for some reason has been sat in my jewellery box for the past few weeks. I don't usually wear silver so this was quite a risk by me, but I love the neon orange chain combined with the crystals. I do think it sits quite funny on the necklace as it doesn't lie flat, but nevertheless it really stands out and makes the outfit.

Since using my new camera, I have been featuring some closer photographs of my make-up and hair as usually I can't do this as my previous camera wasn't great quality. I just want to say thank you for all the lovely comments about my make-up! I do get asked so frequently about what products I use, especially my highlighter (which is Mac 'Whisper of Gilt' if anybody wants to know!) so I am considering a new make-up post soon featuring my daily make-up and tools. Is this something you would be interested in reading? Let me know!
