Black Peplum Top: Miss Selfridge: £10 sale price
Extra long Black leggings: New Look: £7.99
Black fluffy handbag: Paul's Boutique:
Today's outfit of the day is a more formal/evening look that I very recently wore to my friends birthday meal out. I went for an all black outfit with a black leather jacket, fluffy oversized handbag and worker boots. Wearing all black can transform a rather casual outfit of the same garments from a casual daytime, relaxed look to a night-time, much more formal and sophisticated look, also another bonus to wearing black is that it is said to be one of the most slimming colours.
I love the shape that peplum style tops create, the skirt like frill at the bottom expands at the waist highlighting and drawing the eye to the slimmest part of the main body
The leggings from New Look are mega comfy and come in extra long which suits me perfectly as they actually become too long, although most short people probably won't appreciate how nice it actually is to have trousers/ jeans/ leggings etc that are too long, when you've been wearing trousers that are a few inches too short for years and covering them up with boots, extra long leggings become very exciting!
My bag like I've mentioned in other posts is a limited edition Paul's Boutiques from a few years ago, minus the dodgy luminous key ring, (nicknamed "Jennifur"), this always surprised people as Paul's Boutique doesn't have the best reputation anymore.
I decided to contrast my all black look with Barry M's bright glittery red nail varnish and matching lipstick made by GOSH (shade 60 Lambada), the colour is very bright and usually I don't wear bright lipsticks but it matched the nails nicely and had to be done! Erin borrowed some as well and to be honest I think we totally "rocked it"! :)
Also we managed to get a picture of the 2 of us where we both looked decent, this is actually quite rare for us as one of us is usually pulling some weird pose or has their eyes shut and hair all over the place, so after searching through hundreds of rather disappointing photos we found this. Was a pretty proud moment for us!
