Boring black and Jewel tones!

24 August 2008

Getting back into the outfit blogging mode hasn't been easy this week as I have been at work which means I wear the typical department store uniform- all black. Not at all very exciting but it means that colour is an important element in my non-work outfits. So here is my outfit from the one day I didn't go to work and went to see Wall-E with my sisters instead. It was better than I expected it to be and leaves me anticipating Toy Story 3 whenever that is released. Fun!
I'm wearing...
Turquoise Tee(H&M)
Grey Dress (River Island)
Jersey Cardi (Hong Kong)
Leggings (TopShop)
Belt (Accessorize)
Shoes (Stark)
Necklace (Miss Selfridge)

I wanted to pair two rich jewel tones together and so the purple and the turquoise was what I chose in the end. The Ruffley, jersey cardi (or whatever you want to call it, I'm not actually sure myself!) is a Hong Kong purchase and from one of the many little shops within the 'Youth Malls' in Causeway Bay. I like the fact it is by a local designer, it may not be anything too unusual but there is something nice about supporting the local designers. The colour is a rich cadbury purple colour but unfortunately the camera just didn't want to capture it. More HK purchases in the next post!

  7. i used to put them on my tongue and tell my grandparents i'd had my tongue pierced.
    i love that they pretended to believe me and be horrified.
