Multi Stripes

"The joy of dressing is an art."
- John Galliano

John Galliano couldn't be more right. The joy of dressing is an art; I express my inner most feelings, my emotions and my desires in everything I wear. I take pride in my appearance, striving to look great at all times (well apart fro when I'm running late to work, anything clean and not creased will have to do). I'm always experimenting with colours and textures, I just love being that pop of colour amongst a sea of dull hues. Where others wear black, I'll wear yellow... I guess you know where I'm going with this; I don't want to fit in, I don't want to look like everyone else.

I've always loved wearing bold colours and unusual colour combinations, but I'm not really one for wearing prints... at least I wasn't before I spotted this skirt on the Zara website. I was growing tired of colour blocking and wanted to make a change to my style, you know spruce things up a little, give more of a wow factor... do something a little unexpected. Because really, what's the fun in being predictable? Yep, that's right... there isn't any. 

Although I'm quite petite, and the model on the website (wearing this skirt) is probably at least 4 inches taller than me, I didn't let that stop me from getting the skirt. When I say it was love at first sight.. I really do mean it. Finally, I managed to get a colourful print in my wardrobe, something different to my usual. 

A few weeks ago I bought some flirty faux fur peep toe mules from Forever 21 and a bodysuit in the same colour, I knew the skirt would work so well with the pair. The blush pink of the heels and the bodysuit, went perfectly with the pink on the skirt. My mustard faux-leather cross-body bag, from Mango, made the perfect finishing touch, in addition to my amazing gold chain belt from Pretty Little Thing.
