Cross my heart, and.

Top – Topshop
Skirt – Glamorous*
Shoes – New Look
Necklace – Forever21
Lipstick – MAC, Siren
I love this gothic inspired skirt from Glamorous, I think it brings out the rock chick in me (a phrase I cringe at, but it’s true!) because believe it or not back in the day I used to quite like my baggy jeans and black hoodies… everyone had a Avril Lavigne phrase, right? Crosses and skulls are everywhere right now – both being great prints for the Winter season. This skirt is a soft, thick material and it’s really comfortable to wear. I wore it quite simple and with black here but I think this would also look really cool layered with a shirt and some biker boots. Again, wearing my great Topshop jumper, I have got so much wear out of this. I like the way I can wear a short skirt with heels and this jumper completely changes the way it looks – it goes from a very dressy outfit to something I could wear in the day.. for me that equals a great wardrobe staple.
This lipstick is also a new one for me, a bit on the dark side I must admit. I have really been loving plum lipsticks at the moment and loved this when I tried it in store. I do however feel like I need more of a tan to pull it off, what do you think?
I asked you on my Twitter whether you wanted to see a makeup post or outfit post this evening, it was pretty even so I went with this one for now. I do get asked alot about what foundation and makeup I use so I am planning to do both a post and video about it, so look out for those, I’m hoping to post them early next week. So who got snow today?! We got a little, it did take me almost 2 hours to get to work though.. weekend snow is much more convenient! (Oh and the grey lines are meant to be in the photos, I was going for an arty look.. aka crazy moment.)

    I have to say that this really dark and I suppose almost gothic look is fantastic on you. You did a great job of your make up (LOVE the eyes) and the outfit, well, simple yet sweet. I love it!
