Studding it up

In my last post, I said I was off to see a friend from work who was having leaving drinks at the pub. This is what I wore! I really like toughening up girly dresses and skirts with studs so out came my belt and clutch! I quite like the unexpected kimono looking sleeves when belted this way!
Cropped Tee (Youreyeslie) Skirt (Brick Lane market) Belt (River Island)Without even realising, my nails go perfectly with my skirt!Clutch (Zara, with added chain) Amber Ring (Random jewellery shop)Shoes (Topshop)
I feel super lazy today but at least it's almost the weekend. A month to go before I start back at uni for my masters. I'm itching to start and get stuck in and cannot wait until the day when I get a real job rather than my part time retail job...A photo of some yummy sweet almond dessert that my mom made...good old Cantonese dessert! I need to learn a few tricks from her so I can perfect some Cantonese dishes too.

Oh and for those of you who asked about my nails...the trick is sellotape/masking tape etc (make sure it's not too sticky) paint half your nail then peel it off before it dries then paint the other colour. A topcoat is essential!

  22. Winnie, you look awesome (as per usual ;)!
    I love that clutch with your floral skirt and lovely nails!

    ps- We're (part) Cantonese too! I get excited when I hear that seeing as we don't have many Chinese people in Atlanta and they are mostly Mandarin. What is that dessert called? I don't think I've had it- BUT I grew up using a bowl that looked just like that ;)

  27. Hey hun, thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog ♥

    Love the outfit! I'm obsessed with leather and studs at the moment :)

    And to answer your question it'll be uploaded on youtube and on my fashion blog. But the proper programme (The Closet) with Jameela Jamil will preview on the 25th on Bebo and Youtube, then if it meets its targets and gets lots of viewers it'll hopefully be shown on T4! I'll put details on how to watch it on my blog v soon

  39. You HAVE to teach me how to make the almond dessert - that was one of my favourites (^-^)

    *sigh* how are you so stylish Winnie? I envy you! I have to admit though, complete lack of money might have something to do with my utter unstylishness... Birmingham here I come - I hope some of your quirky chicness rubs off on me
