FORMAL ATTIRE

shirt from jessica buurman // skirt from sheinside // fedora from choies  // shoes from yeswalker // bow-tie is diy


This is as formal as my attire will ever get, I can't imagine myself in a suit at all. Anyway, I wanted to go for a more "mature" look with a classic pinstripe shirt along with a velvet bow-tie that I made at midnight from sudden urge. I might do a DIY video on how to make a velvet bow-tie, when I have time. 

The shirt has batwing sleeves, not sure if I'm digging that or not, sounds silly but it does make raising my arm a little irritating, it's probably easily if I am to wear this shirt with a pair of jeans so I won't need to tuck the shirt in at all. Nonetheless I just love the simplicity of the black and white stripes!

If I am to wear this outdoor, I will definitely put a pair of tights on underneath the thigh-high socks since the weather is getting rather chilly in the UK!

LITTLE DEVIL


sweater from oasap // plaid shirt from salvation army // jeans from matalan // boots from storenvy - mancphoebe // hat from ebay // bracelet from sammydress
I'm in love with this entire outfit, especially my new pair of platform boots. They're ever so comfortable to walk in now that I've broken into them. I think I'm going to start a little collection with both platform shoes and hats, and beanies are definitely something I will be investing in for this autumn/winter - a saviour for cold weather and bad hair days!

The sweater has such awesome graphics, I don't particular know the meaning behind some of the patterns, if there are any, so hopefully none of them means anything offensive to anyone! Haha.
