Culotted Cream.

I've not much time today, as I'm off on holiday on the 'morrow and need to finish packing...That's probably the worst part of a holiday. Aside from unpacking...
Here's an outfit I jammed together this evening, with my new favourite item: culottes. They deceived me in the shop, as I mistook them for a skirt. Crafty little blighters...
It was far too chilly to wear them alone, so I stuck my spotty tights on beneath. 
...And hey presto..! (...I've used far too many ellipses, have I not...?)
...





And that'll be it for tonight. I'm off to check I've packed the right amount of underwear...

Dreamboats and petticoats...

'Oh dear...' was the perfunctory comment of a certain family member upon seeing my outfit this morning. GREAT start to the day. They know precisely how to boost someone's confidence.
Despite that, I'm going to go ahead and shove it in this blog post. Hopefully it won't incite the same reaction in you.
Fingers crossed.
Well, at the very least, it's an outfit that I am personally comfortable in, which I suppose is of most importance...


...YES, I AM SAT ON A CHEST OF DRAWERS.

I'm often asked about how I do my makeup. I think it's due to the trademark 'flicks' of mine. My trick, if you want it right first time, is to create your line with a pencil liner, then go over that with liquid.
TAH-DAH.
Another makeup rut of mine is coral red lips. I use Dr. Hauschka, as it's 100% chemical free, but I'm sure there are loads of others out there that give equally great colour.



And here are a few close ups of my outfit components:
