Nails - Models Own Grace Green, Belt - H&M.
All summer long I've been meaning to make use of the bright evenings to capture a 'going out' outfit. I finally found an opportunity this weekend on our way out for a few drinks. Lace dresses, stupidly high heels, big hair and red lipstick are always high on my agenda when it comes to getting dolled up. Only this rosy dress, a gift from French Connection, called for something a little more subtle.
I found my much neglected leather jacket at the back of the wardrobe, a bit dusty, unloved and in dire need of an outing. The mossy nail polish was an impulse buy in the epic Models Own sale which I though married quite nicely with the dusky rose lace (its actually paler than in these pictures). I was able to forgo scarlet lips and backcombed hair but there was no way I could give up my heels! As for the spectacles, don't believe I have ever worn my glasses in an outfit post (or if I have it was a very long time ago). I don't wear them all the time, mostly just for sewing but after a busy week making frocks my eyes were tired and needed a helping hand.
