Outfit 02/07/2018

Amassing a wardrobe inventory on Urstyle has really reminded me of some of the lovely things I'm lucky enough to own, but completely neglect. It's mainly due to my own haphazard dressing, as well as a fear of ruining things. For example, many of my Regal Rose pieces are tarnishing beyond recovery and so it makes me afraid to wear them (I am now painting all of their items with clear nail polish, which helps. They even deleted a review of mine from their website when I complained that a choker I had from them turned brown, so I fear I'm not the only one who experiences this. However I do love their designs so I shall persevere.) I'm also very sad that I can't find a good approximation of the beautiful black crocheted Monsoon cardigan I'm wearing, which I got for £5 on eBay. It is stunning! The bangle is also a close match to one my mum recently passed on to me.

This Topshop dress was an impulsive sale buy, and it has proven to be exceptionally handy. I wear it at least a couple of times a month as it takes me from work to an evening activity feeling appropriately dressed for both. Also, velvet.

Clan of Xymox

What I wore to see Clan of Xymox on Saturday evening. The heat wave continues, but all this black mesh definitely made things easier. This was also my first outing in the Current Mood Strapped Traitor boots. Thoughts on those to follow, but they were comfortable until about the seventh hour on my feet! I also wore my silver armour ring for the first time in ages and managed not to lose it. Success!

I actually planned this outfit in advance using Urstyle and it was both perversely fun and very convenient! I will fully admit to being both an outfit planner and a spontaneous dresser depending on how together my life is, but this saved me so much time.
