Last Thursday night I went out for my friend Grace’s birthday. My outfit is very simple but I added a little edge with red accessories and red lipstick to make my look stand out. I opted for a leather look skirt that Grace so kindly lent to me and a black and white chequered blouse that I picked up in Forever 21 awhile ago. I love this blouse because it is a bit different to the array of chequered blouses in the shops at the moment. If check isn’t your thing you could select a simpler design top instead, perhaps a white or beige blouse with a black bow detail at the neck. You could also choose leather look leggings instead of a skirt if you feel you are going to be too cold with the legs out this winter!
My bag and shoes are about a year old from Forever 21 and Zara. The chunky platform heel is a style I always wear. I feel they add a little edge to the outfit rather than choosing a standard stiletto style heel. They are also very comfortable after hours and hours of dancing! I picked them up for €50 which I feel is really good considering the amount of wear I have got out of them.
The photos are a bit dark but I really wanted to blog this outfit! I tried to lighten them up as much as I could so I hope they are clear for you. I have also put together a collage of similar pieces that you can pick up in the high street at affordable prices.
