Russian Dolls, African Jewellery

Russian Dolls

I wore this outfit on Friday 7th December 2012.
I'm wearing:
Dorothy Perkins black fit and flare dress,
Cache Cache black (sleeves rolled up) bolero,
Avon red/gold/black/white/yellow Russian dolls necklace,
Marks and Spencer berry red tights,
New Look black studded ankle boots.

African Jewellery

I wore this outfit on Sunday 9th December 2012.
I'm wearing:
Dorothy Perkins red fit and flare dress,
black/red/yellow/green/animal print beaded "I Love Africa" necklace from Gambia,
brown wooden bracelet from Gambia,
Mint Velvet black leggings,
New Look black studded ankle boots.

Yes... I bought the same dress in different colours! In fact this dress came in a knitted version too which I've worn on the blog before - see it here. I also have the knitted version in blue - it's actually my "bloated day" dress because it's looser. I usually just throw it on sans accessories so I doubt you'll ever see it on the blog... Despite having four versions of this Dorothy Perkins dress, the black is still the best fit. I've actually worn this black one on the blog already - twice! (Here's the last time.)

My necklaces are my favourite pieces in these outfits. The Russian dolls necklace was a present from my Mum last Christmas. I actually only remembered I had it the other week so this outfit was the première for this necklace. How cool is it that it's like a real Russian doll?! I kept showing it off at college that day like a party trick. The "I Love Africa" necklace was a recent present/souvenir given to me by my man from Gambia (his home country). Honestly, I would have never picked it out myself but I actually love it now!

That's all for now... Hope you've had a good weekend!
