Only you can bring me back to life..

Hi lovelies, tonight I have a blog post that is probably going to make you all very jealous, so I apologise in advance! As you know I've mentioned a certain dip-dye maxi skirt by Coco's Fortune in many of my wishlist posts, but I never expected to win one of the Hallowe'en competitions on the Rare Facebook page and get it for free (eek!) It massively brightened up my week (and I'd been having a seriously bad one) so it was very well-received. I originally wanted the skirt in the black and flesh colour, but since it was out of stock I went for the black and oxblood which I'm actually incredibly happy with because it goes perfectly with my beautiful new flower crown from Crown and Glory!

These photos of me aren't the most flattering, but I had to share this skirt with you! I love the black and red ombre effect so much...

Since the new skirt is so beautiful on it's own, I decided to style it very simply with a black crop top, chelsea boots and my new flower headband which is the perfect colour for the skirt. Naturally, I went with a studded belt and a tangle of necklaces, too, because some things never change..!

Unfortunately there's not very many good headshots that show off my new headband in all it's (crown and) glory - sorry, couldn't resist - but I can assure you you'll be seeing a lot more of it! I love it to pieces and think it's perfect for me, subtle enough to wear casually at uni, which I did today, but I know it'll look great with dressier outfits too. I can see myself wearing this outfit with a big scarf, leather jacket and thick tights underneath for when things get even colder, too. Find it on Lookbook here:



Do you love my new skirt as much as I do?!

  1. LOVE the skirt, the whole ombre affect to it is amazing. I also really like what you've paired it with and the headband is such a good idea to wear too. :)

    1. I honestly can't believe how lucky I was to win it, I'm one of those really annoying types that retweets all the competitions on twitter and enters all the competitions on Facebook and never wins a thing - karma was obviously holding out to get me the one item I was really coveting! Very happy bunny haha. You should definitely get one of the hairbands, I can totally see you rocking one and they would look so perfect with your uber-colourful wardrobe! If you like this one there's a giveaway for this exact one on http://www.stephaniedreams.com/ cos I was going to enter then realised I was wearing that exact headband at the time ahaha xxx

  5. Loving oxblood at the monent and its not too overpowering with the ombre effect! Who takes your pictures, you always have a snap whenever you get something so I assume you have a very willing photographer?

    1. I'm glad you like it :) Well, my dad and my housemate are keen photographers, as was my ex-boyfriend, so it's meant that I get a snap of everything at some point, though not usually straight away! :) xxx

  7. That skirt is gorgeous! You must have super thick skin though to keep wearing crop tops as the temperature goes down!
