Outfit Post: Be mine, Victorian Valentine



Dress - Primark / Blouse - Primark / Socks - Topshop / Wedge boots - New Look / Hair bow - Miss Selfridge (from my secret santa) / Bird ring - Primark / Love ring - Dorothy Perkins / Rose ring - Accessorise / Above the knuckle ring - Dixi
Cutting to the chase, no I'm not celebrating Valentines Day, nor do I hate it. I'm a hopeless romantic and can't wait to fall in love, but for now I'll settle with munching chocolates with my friends (even though I've technically given up chocolate) and staying in watching movies I've been recommended, not a cutesy couple in sight! That's not going to stop me from getting a bit dressed up and embrace the love hearts/reds/girly theme of Valentines Day, and just to show how versatile my dress sense is, I've gone all Victorian-style in this outfit, completely contrasting with my previous, slightly "rock-chick" outfit in my latest blog post. I really love the shape created by the dress and the sleeves, it's the perfect girly girl outfit!

You may recognise this Primark dress, it seems to be very popular and I've spotted so many bloggers with the same dress, making me fall head-over-heels for it and managed to get it in the Boxing Day sales. I've layered it over this bell sleeve chiffon shirt, also from Primark. The shirt alone isn't that flattering on me as it's too long at the back and adds volume to the wrong places, but I really love the sleeves and am always teaming it up with my dresses. 

You may also notice I have straight hair. 'Big deal?' Why, yes. Now that I've embraced my natural curls, and have decided to let my hair grow super long I have stayed away from heat products (except for my high-maintenance fringe). However, every so often, as in once every few months, I decide to straighten it just to see how long it's grown, always pretty exciting (for me), and it's funny how different I look!



























I hope you all have a lovely Valentines Day, couples and singletons alike!

  13. Why does my fringe never look this good. You managed to find great stuff in Primark! Why am I never this lucky?

    Ps. no-one can give up chocolate, it is a physical impossibility!

    1. Thanks for the compliment! It's a constant struggle between me and my fringe, but luckily I've got quite thick hair. I usually spot the good stuff on other blogs, but yeah it's not easy finding them.
      Haha I'm coping so far, but have to keep reminding myself, I've found substitutes though :P
