Before the indoor shoot above, me and my Mum went to a nearby park when she finished work. We took some photos outdoors - haven't done so since July in the Philippines, see those photos here. However, as you can see, it just didn't work out! Our amateur photography skills just weren't enough to counteract the dark. Saying that, I don't think they were too bad for a first attempt but I think it's best to stick to indoor shoots... At least until Spring comes!
Outfit worn on Friday 30th November 2012;
Karen Millen black mesh-over-sequins top,
Dorothy Perkins black/green checked long-sleeved shirt,
Mint Velvet black jeggings,
New Look black studded ankle boots.
I never used to be much of a sequin/glitter/general-sparkle fan. I bought this top and the nude version back in Winter 2010 just for work - when I worked at Karen Millen - but once they were out of season, I stopped wearing them. I only began wearing them again this Autumn. I'm loving wearing them in the day to add sparkle to an everyday outfit. This shirt was also resurrected recently from my closet.
These jeggings need to be replaced by real black skinny jeans asap. They are getting baggy on me and my jeans need substance to support this big butt. *Linda shakes her bootylicious bum like Beyonce.*
You should know that I am addicted to these new ankle boots of mine. I've worn them EVERY DAY since I got them... I know that I should fight the urge so that they last longer... But they just look too cool!
Back in late November, I showed you my favourite sketches for the upcoming Harrods Christmas windows. Now the windows have been completed and our Disney heroines' have been dressed in their designer frocks. As predicted though, the dresses either turned out better or worse than the sketches so here are my new top three, of the finished products:
3. Rapunzel from Tangled
|Dress by Jenny Packham|
2. Aurora from Sleeping Beauty
|Dress by Elie Saab|
1. Tiana from Princess and The Frog
|Dress by Ralph & Russo|
For more, see the full gallery here.
I actually favoured the Tiana and Aurora sketches so the dresses lived up to my expectations; but the Pocahontas dress unfortunately didn't turn out as elegant as the sketch, in my opinion. The Rapunzel dress was a surprise because it was quite dull in the sketch and yet it turned out gorgeous!
That's enough sparkle for now. Hope you guys had a great weekend!
