03. Socks, Shoes & Tulle

I was watching The Duchess the other day, and fell completely and utterly in love with the costumes and the soft colour pallet used in it again. I especially like how the costume designer accessorized everything. Although women of the time had to endure horrific corsets, I am very jealous of the beautiful dresses the richer ladies of the time were lucky to wear!
I have a sneaking suspicion that this is going to influence my spring outfits.


A slightly belated outfit post today - from my outfit yesterday.


I bought some knitted socks reminiscent of the socks girls wear in primary school. You know the kind, normally white with little holes dotted all over them. I used to love mine. TopShop have some in store at the moment, I bought a pair in a beige/nude colour.


I've been wanting to incorporate socks with shoes since I saw them on the Burberry runway. I think when done right, they can really compliment an outfit. As it's still quite fresh outside, although lovely and sunny, it also means I can wear strappy shoes while still having warm feet. Brilliant. Who said fashion had to be uncomfortable? I think this may be my favourite trend yet.


I went for full on girlie girl with the outfit - a pale pink dress from H&M that I was bought for Christmas by my stepmum, and layered underneath the dress I wore I lace top I bought from TopShop about two years ago. I wore it the death when I first bought it, but it ended up lost in my piles of tops I never seem to wear these days. Breaking it out and wearing it after so long felt really good.
I seem to be wearing my work shoes 27/7 at the moment - when I get paid I might buy another pair with my discount. I really like them. I think they worked really well with the socks too.


I'm going to the cinema tonight to watch Alice in Wonderland 3D with my friend Emily. I've heard mixed responses about it, so I'm intrigued to see how I'll take to it. I adore most of the cast, so I'm hopeful I will like it. I'm not paying for 3D glasses when I still have some from seeing Avatar in 3D. I'm not made of money Cineworld!


Ciao.

    STORY OF MY LIFE xDD
    I must have at least 85 different tops and love them all but wear them too much in the beginning, lose them then never wear them again DX so wasteful!
