Stud Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Cross Dip hem tunic  - c/o Glamorous
Shoes - New Look

Yay another outfit post. What are your thoughts on me doing outfit posts, do you like, or shall I just stick to the beauty stuff? Answers on a postcard please!

These were some quick snaps before I headed out yesterday to a surprise get together shindig for one of my school friends. It had just started to rain, hence the not so smiley smiley photographs!

 Embracing my inner rock chick I paired this Grey cross dip hem vest tunic with my trusty faux leather (an obvious choice, I live in this jacket!) and some wedge shoes for a bit of height! Those of you that have been fortunate to have met me, know just how short I am. At a gigantic 4ft 11 means that sometimes certain items of clothing dont look the way they 'should' on me. This was the case with this tunic/top. As a vest, this came up way too long on me so I knew instantly a waist belt would add shape, shorten and add definition to the outfit. By whacking on the thin belt, hitching up the top half of the vest so it hung over the belt (still lining up with the bottom of the cross - I hope you've noticed, attention to detail and all that jazz!) it gave the tunic top a completely new look. It works best on me as a loose baggy dress rather than a vest top. The way I have styled it makes it shorter, therefore more flattering on my tiny frame. Therefore it looks as though I am wearing the tunic, not the tunic wearing me!

I shyed away from dip hems in the past but now with this tunic and another dip hem chiffon skirt (post to come if you want?) being recent additions to my wardrobe, I am slowly coming around to the idea that I can infact pull this style off even though I am a very short human being!  ;-)

Much Love

    Keep up the outfit posts I love them :) This outfit is SO me! I love what you did with the vest/dress to make it suit you better, definitely looks good with some shape. I can see that it might drown you a little without the belt. Looks amazing though!xx
