Structured bags and buttoned-up plaid

"You don't have to carry a designer bag that costs more than a car to look cool."
- Kesha 

After we chose and ordered this bag on Persunmall (which was hard considering how many awesome bags there 
are) they contacted us to say there had been a mix up with colours and the bags that were meant to be black 
had arrived in mint. Now that it has arrived, we are actually really happy this mix up did happen since we love the
 mint! It's going to be perfect for spring and summer, and this outfit didn't look nearly as cool before I finished off 
with the bag! I really liked how it brought out some of the different tones in the plaid (and made it look a bit more 
put together!)

lipstick - Rimmel Kate Moss in  'Kiss of Life' (111)
nail polish - Butter London in 'Diamond Geezer'
leggings, boots - Glassons
heart necklace - thrifted
shirt c/o frontrowshop

I was inspired to fish out my "Diamond Geezer' polish after seeing it in the nail polish feature on WhoWhatWear,
 they said Butter make the best metallics and I wholeheartedly agree with that! I only have the silver but will have 
to introduce the bronze and silver sometime in the future for sure!

I also read a really interesting commentary this week on fashion advice by Rebecca from The Clothes Horse . I
 think she made some really great points about how fashion advice and societies ideals shouldnt have to restrict 
you creatively and fashion wise etc. So if you are looking for something to read that makes you think, I've included
 the link above :).
