Apologies for the disappearing act; I've been away for a few days enjoying a mini holiday (any Prisoner fans out there? I went to Portmeirion on Wednesday- seriously one of the best places ever, so surreal). Anyway, before I went away I experimented with curling my hair. I have curly hair anyway, but I straightened it first, then put bendy sticks in and left them in for 36hrs (I didn't leave the house for a day). The result was rather fun, although I now realise I looked a bit like Louis XIV, who donned some badass black curls way before me. Before I went away, I also managed to break my camera, by dropping it for the 275th and final time. I had to use my fathers far inferior camera, and even resorted to my web-cam, but these shots aren't really any more awful than usual. Until I get a new camera though, outfit posts shall probably be few and far between.
The dress in this post is a gem. Mega tight, exposed zip, and cheap (thanks H&M). I wore it with my beaded peach vest, the colour of which is unusual for me, but one I definitely want to wear more. For some reason, I love mixing the blush/peach shade with vivid green hues. I don't know what made me crave this colour combination, but way back in January I used these colours as the basis of my first ever Polyvore set, which I've shown at the bottom of this post. Now all I need is more peachy clothing to go with my green accessories.
