That Statement Piece – OOTN



Right, so I’m not too sure how this works  but I’m just attempting to do my first proper fashion inspired feature. Every month or so, in my P’G Tips menu, I will explore my love for fashion, arts, design and make up, just to share a few tips with you.


Now the other night, I was in Islington in London for a pageant show which one of my best friends from university actually won and become Miss ACS UK 2016. Yes, it was a prestigious event with the contestants in their lovely evening and traditional wear and the crowd looking classy and dapper, but for me, I opted for a smart casual outfit, with comfort being my key inspiration mainly because I was travelling from far and would need to hop off one train to another. With this being said, a simple outfit can easily be dressed up and developed. After running around my local town centre, I went with my original plan of wearing a white over-sized shirt, teamed with blue jeans and went in search for a statement piece. Well to be fair, I never actually intended to include a statement piece in my outfit, I wanted my make up to do all the talking but I stumbled across this lovely clutch.

I managed to capture a few images before I left and once I had come back, thanks to my lovely little sister.

Details of how I dressed this outfit, where everything I wore/used was from will be listed below. From my makeup to my shoes.

Is it too late now to say sorry? 


You gotta go and get angry at all of my honesty

You know I try but I don’t do too well with apologies

I hope I don’t run out of time, can someone call a referee?

Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness

I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice

By once or twice I mean maybe a couple of hundred times

So let me, oh let me redeem, oh redeem myself tonight

Cause I just need one more shot at second chances

I’m sure you guys have heard that all so familiar song by Justin Beiber but I just thought to butter you all up abit before you express your frustrations towards me ! 
This is going to be an awfully short post today, mainly because it’s late and I’m working with a strict deadline, secondly because I don’t want to bombard you with my thoughts and lastly because this is just an apology for my 3 week hiatus.

                O v e r w h e l m e d.

That’s the best word to describe how I’ve been for the past couple of weeks. Being back home from uni, working, revising, rehearsing, socialising, just everything! But I’m so so sorry, I didn’t forget about you. Not anyone of you to be honest, I’ve just been caught up with myself and life changes. 
But I’m back guys, I’m back and I’m better.

Hoping you all enjoy the rest of your evening. 

Yours ever so truly,
