The sky line is burning red.

 Dress - Topshop 
Leather Jacket - Red Herring 
Boots - Topshop
Tights - M&S 
Necklace - Accesorize 

This is another outfit I wore a very long time ago now. This is what I wore to go out with my sister when she was back home for the week. It is very rare that you'll see me in sporting two Topshop items that aren't shoes or jewellery. I got both the dress and shoes in the sale awhile back in the same visit! Since I bought them I have also got the purple speckled version of this dress, a spotty skater skirt, and a daisy ring! The is proof that they have improved their sizes as I have not bought clothing from there in so long due to the sizings. I do think it still depends on the material. Does anyone else think their sizing has improved? The leather jacket I got for 18th a scary 5 years ago and is the only item of clothing I've ever had so long! I tried to add studs along the collar but only ended up putting 3 on as it is very difficult and painful for the thumbs.

Not sure if you can tell from these photos but I had dyed my hair 'Cherry Red' (well more a dark red really). I loved the colour but do wish that red didn't come out so quickly. I know using a permanent dye would last longer but from my experience it fades just as quick but also gives roots but semi permanent fades more evenly. I am too lazy and fickle for permanent hair dye. It's always the way that the colour I love most is the hardest to keep. Let's hope another box does the trick, even though the red is almost gone now over a month later. Maybe using putting some dye in conditioner is the secret but I don't know it semi permanent dye will work. There's always some kind of hair dilemma going on!

Let's start a revolution with our hearts on our sleeves

 Top - Tour merch. 
Cardigan - Forever 21+ 
Skirt - River Island 

This is what I wore for a trip to Glasgow way back at the beginning of May when it was still pretty cold, to visit the newly opened Lego shop. The top was bought at a Blood Red Shoes gig last year and I was surprised that a the ladies fit actually fit me as I normally fit that ladies fit are not forgiving of busty gals. I really love the design of it as it is unusual. The cardigan was my first purchase from the new Forever 21 store in Glasgow. I really liked it the first time I saw it but didn't want to pay full price as I rarely do. I managed to grab it in the sale there was only two sizes left I got the smaller one but probably could have got away with a size down, but I do like my knitwear loose fitting.

 Necklace - Pretty Cuckoo 
Boots - Topshop 

I had been after some casual ankle boots for awhile but hadn't found any at a price I was will to pay. I came across these in the sale at half price and snapped them up along with a dress which I'll show in my next post. It the been a very long time since I bought anything from Topshop, never mind two sale items! Although we are now past boots weather (fingers crossed!) they will get lots of wear when the colder weather returns. We got these cupcakes just outside the Lego store and wanted to include them as they are so good.

 I thought I would include my very first attempt at an outside outfit shot. I was trying to be discreet which my boyfriend does not understand the meaning of hence the awkward look while people all walk about! I would appreciate any tips anyone has on outside outfit posts for awkward and shy types. 

Coat - Evans (very old) 
Bag - Accesorize 

I am very excited to be going to see A Plastic Rose again on Saturday so here's one of my favourite songs/videos by them. Do check them out!
