Jazzing it up.

Posted on: 23 February 2009

Lace Dress worn as top (DIY River Island), Skirt worn as dress (AA), Tights, Oxfords (Topshop) Belt (New Look) Necklace (Tatty Devine for Tate)

Oh yes, I've finally had my fringe cut...but am actually willing my fringe to grow a bit longer. I think my hair looks a bit strange here because my hairdresser insisted on straightening my (already straight) hair. I need to fluff it up a bit!

I had an amazing time at the Jazz Club for my friend's birthday at the weekend and this is what I ended up wearing on the evening. You know you're in for a treat when you walk into a tiny club (just the one room) and there are break dancers doing their thing in the middle of the floor. These guys weren't being paid, they were just having fun and waiting for the Jazz band. The band, The Speedometers were amazing, and I definitely need to make trips back to this club because it had such a good vibe. Really chilled out and fun.

On a side note to LFW, I couldn't take my eyes off the sheer organza with black detailing from Christopher Kane. It was seen peeking out from underneath boyfriend sized sweaters to the structured, armour-like paneled dresses. Kane turned something that is soft and delicate by nature into something much tougher looking and not at all reminiscent of ultra girly prom dresses. It was a juxtaposition of the best kind.

  1. Lovely outfit!
    I love the wall you take outfit pictures in front of. I've always wanted to plaster a wall with stuff, maybe in my new house cause I'm gonna be moving soon.

  4. What a great outfit - it looks Balmain inspired!

    That's so funny that the hairdresser straightened your hair even though you didn't need it. It looks fabulous though!
