OOTD & Playsuit Rants

22 February 2015


This is the first OOTD I have done for this blog, and I have to say, I find them so difficult! I apologise for the crappy quality of these images, but we all gotta start somewhere! Tonight I was heading out for a meal and drinks for a friends birthday, and I wanted on an outfit which was dressy, without being too OTT.


I picked out this red playsuit, which is one I got from New Look last spring. I've only ever worn it once, as it has the most awkward fastening at the back! It has a tie fastening, which is completely impractical seeing as you have to reach behind your head and tie it yourself! It makes going for a pee a million times harder, and it's safe to say I just won't have the patience to tie this when I'm drunk. This little niggle has really put me off wearing this item! Does anyone else have this problem, that playsuits are totally impractical?


Nevertheless, I love the pretty floral pattern and it's flirty shape, and I don't really own another piece of clothing in this vibrant shade of red. The playsuit is made of a floaty chiffon-type material, which is super forgiving, along with it's slinky layered style.


I chose to wear this playsuit with black tights as it really is rather short. Let's face it, it's seriously nippy out this time of year. I also went with my H&M black leather jacket, as I loved the contrast of the girlie floral dress with the toughness of the black leather. I finished the look off with my trusty black Next ankle boots, as they are so comfy and go with everything!


I picked out a couple pieces of silver jewellery to go with this look: a pair of dream catcher earrings (my current faves) from New Look, and a simple short necklace (from a set of 3) from Primark. I also paired it with a gorgeous powder-blue bag from Accessorize


Makeup-wise I kept it quite simple, with the lips being the focus. The shade in question was the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper, an orangey-red which went perfectly with this playsuit. For eyes I used the Bourjois Colorband in Mauve Baroque and a touch of MAC All That Glitters on the lids, and Satin Taupe in the crease. 


This was actually the first time I blow dried and curled my hair since it's been cut, and I was really pleased with the results. It looked a lot better in real life than in photos! I've never been able to do anything with my hair before, so this was amazing!

Let me know what you think of this kind of post! I'll definitely be working on improving my OOTD photos.
