Back to poorly lit indoor pictures again this week I'm afraid! Although I was fully prepared to brave the cold in this outfit and take them outside, my house was sadly being painted this day and even though I'm much more open about my blog these days, I'm still not so comfortable that I can take my outfit photos with an audience of workmen!
This is by far one of my most favourite outfits that I have worn recently and amazingly, I managed to ditch the disco pants for a bit! There's something slightly witchy about my dress, and Season of the Witch is one of my favourite tracks that Hole did unplugged, so I thought it made an apt title for the post. I adore this dress, I don't wear it nearly enough and usually even when I do, it's so cold I have to hide the prettiest part of it underneath a jumper or cardigan or coat anyway. This time was sadly no different but at least I got to hide it under an incredible jacket this time. I think if I'd just worn my regular leather jacket with this outfit, it would be too black but the tapestry part of this jacket adds just a subtle pop of colour that really made the outfit for me. I think my Topshop fox scarf goes with the tapestry jacket so well, I'm really grateful to have received it for Christmas, it's great! So snuggly and warm and a girl who goes by The Glitter Vixen online can never have too many things in her fox themed collection. However, the part I love most about this particular outfit is the newest addition to my headwear collection: my bowler hat with cat ears! It's so cool. I first saw one similar on Missguided but it was 3x the price of this one and had sold out, so turning to eBay was the next obvious step. A few weeks later and this baby arrived on my doorstep. I love it so. I was terrified it was going to be too big for my tiny head but luckily it's just right. The ears make it just a little bit different from your regular bowler hats which admittedly, everyone seems to be wear right now.
Finally, I'm featuring an outfit I didn't wear on a Sunday! It was my chosen outfit for heading into town one morning to get my hair a much needed cut, the improvement is pictured above. I also wore this last week for my trip to Manchester to see some friends. I love going to meet them for a few drinks in Manchester, I always have such a good time. The one drawback is my friends are fans of real ale and I am really not a beer drinker. However, this time a miracle happened, and after sampling about 6 of the beers on offer and the barman laughing at me telling me I was in the wrong place if I didn't like beer, I found one that I genuinely loved. For those interested, it's called My Name is Ingrid. Of course, it was also one of the strongest beers in there. I left to catch my train really quite tipsy and the next morning awoke horrified to realise I'd left my railcard on the train, oops! It amuses me how I went through the whole of uni and I never lost anything while I was drunk and then I get drunk after I've graduated and lose the one of the most valuable things in my purse. Ah well, at some point, I'll try and find out if anyone has handed it in...
