Once again these photos are a few weeks old, hence the fur coat, gloves and hat. I actually went outside without a coat on today, so Spring truly has sprung. In this photo set I am wearing a Victorian belt buckle which I originally intended to transform into a brooch by adding a pin. I never quite got round to doing this, instead I added a chain to it and now prefer to wear it as a necklace. I get quite a lot of compliments when wearing this, it really is wonderfully detailed. I'm a little unsure about the chain fringing hanging from the buckle, one would perhaps think of chatelaine and its various little tools, but I think in this instance the chains are purely decorative.

I'm addicted to 'Vampira Polish' made by Eyeko, it's black with red micro-glitter....

I may not have posted an outfit in a while, but I have still been taking outfit photos...lots to catch up on, these shots are from 2 months ago! The outfit is a bit blah, but my hair had some spectacular volume to it that needed documenting, and I wanted to share the supremely dangly earrings I recently purchased from New Look. New Look is a pretty scary place to me, but it is worth an occasional venture into as these earrings prove.
Blouse (Zara), antique lace collar, skirt (Topshop), shoes (Rascal)
I bought the sweetest earring holder a couple of weeks ago, black wire fashioned into a miniature room divider. It's nice to have (almost) all of my earrings out on display, reminding me of ones I haven't worn in a while.
Not only does Fan Bingbing have an adorable name, she has an exquisite sense of style. I've long been a fan of her polished, lady-like look, but she recently blew me away with this ensemble. Pictured here attending the Elie Saab Fall 2011 presentation, Fan is of course wearing Elie Saab. The turban was a self-made creation, showing her flair for styling as it really does complete the outfit. A bold choice, but when you're as flawlessly beautiful as her you can get away with anything!
