So I'm back again with more insanely lust worthy items for you all to join me in druelling over since I am literally poor, poor, poor ATM. Oh well a girl can dream hey and is there really any better way to dream then creating awesome AW ready outfits with the items you can't afford?

Today is time for this stunning metallic maxi skirt from Topshop to have a whirl at creating outfit magic. Now this skirt (and let's face it actually this entire outfit) might not be to everyones taste however as soon as I saw it I just knew it had to be mine. Perfect for those upcoming Christmas parties as much as  for a trip to the shops this baby is incredibly versatile.

Today I wanted to show a more 'casual' day look as I just know that as soon as anyone see's this skirt they will instantly (like me) think 'occasionwear' and me well on closer inspection I just didn't see it that way. And then I saw this insanely, beautiful boxy floral shirt in these stunning burgundy/purple tones. Now it just made perfect sense that these two pieces needed to be together but the question now was how can I incorporate these into one and add warm and interest for a chilly autumn/winter night?

The answer to my question was these chunky sandals that I have officially been longing for since first spotting them in the window of my local River Island. Now you all know of my preference for a chunky shoe and I personally love the way they look against a slinkier silhouette to add a touch of the unexpected and dare I say it 'grunge'. I finished it all off with a autumn/winter appropriate combo of fur trimmed gilet and bowler hat to stay snug as a bug in a rug.  And of course with open toe sandals you have to have a matching lip and nail combo! To complement the stunning colours running through the shirt I decided on these plum toned lovelies from you guessed it...Topshop (I just can't get enough ATM).

So there you have it, how I'd style this amazing metallic maxi. Let me know how you'd style it in the comments below I would love to know. 



  1. I really must try Topshop makeup. Everyone keeps saying how good it is.
