For the shoot I bought the purple top and black maxi skirt I’m wearing in these photos. I’m really into my cropped tops at the mo, even though I don’t have a wash board stomach. But in 2014, I don’t think anybody really cares about that anymore, I think a lot of people have realised the lovely ladies on our tellyboxes and magazines aren’t there to be aimed for. They’re there to sell a product, and not all of us have to aspire to be them. I’ve even noticed that mannequins in shops have a little tummy, and they still look cute in all the clothes, HeHe! For the longest time I’ve wanted a maxi skirt, thinking a looser fitting one would cover up the non-toned tum more. But I am LOVING this stretch one which glides over my tum.
I chose to accessories by expanding on the purple tone of the top. I went for a darker red floppy brimmed hat, which I thought for the longest time was called a Fendora(!), and a big bejewelled gold necklace. The gems reflect purple and blue tones of light which all links together rather nicely. My deep red lipstick matches the hat and emphasises the drama also created by the hat.
It’s always nice to stroll into uni and have several people comment of how lovely my outfit is!
I’m not gonna lie, as I’ve been writing this post I’ve been on a major Gwen Stefani/No Doubt binge. My ultimate Gwen fave is Cool. The song is super chilled and the video looks amazing, culturally classic.
