Mixing Up Textures


Outfit: Blouse, Skirt, Bracelet, Hairband - Primark




I wore this outfit of mismatch textures to my friend's 'Winter Wonderland' themed party. Originally I was going as a snowflake wearing this white lace dress with chandelier earrings and plenty of glittery eyeshadow. Unfortunately, ten minutes before I was supposed to leave my sister told me that she'd lent the dress to her friend - cue 10 minutes of serious stress. I ended up going for this ruffle top just because the cream colour slightly resembled the initial look I was going for and paired it with the sparkliest thing I could find hoping for some 'Winter Wonderland' magic. The best outfit of the night had to be the three who turned up as the wise men, even bringing perfume bottles as gifts!

Love the sheerness of your shirt, and it goes so well with that cute mini skirt you've got on. Your accessories are very appropriate for a holiday party, too. Great job!
