Last weeks party outfit

Im Still new to this but i thought id make a post about my outfit for last weekend. It's so hard to find a last minute outfit but I managed to pull together some new clothes and some old clothes to put together an outfit to wear to a friends 'low key' birthday.
I'm wearing my new skirt from Temt. I absolutely love the print and just had to have it. It goes well with almost anything and I can wear it casually as well as dress it up. Perfect buy!

My top is so old but has never been work (typical). But I paired it with my silver studded belt from sportsgirl as my top was way to baggy and flowly and looked very unflattering without the belt. And lastly I'm wearing my black 'chunk leather' Windsor smith shoes. To die for! I love them and they are so comfy I would recommend them to anyone!

Oh and how could I forget my half lepoard half black leather mini Celine bag!

The 2013 Brit Awards Mini Red Carpet Fashion Review

The 2013 Brit awards highlighted some of Hollywood A-listers pulling out all the stops when it came to the red carpet. I la-la-laaaaarrrrved Taylor Swift’s red carpet outfit. She looked absolutely stunning in an Elie Saab dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry. Her subtle hair and make up suited perfectly for the dress and it was a perfect head-to-toe look.  Taylor Swift has been showing her more mature side lately and has been knocking it out of the park when it comes to red carpet fashion (Although the same cant be said for her love life...)  Some questioned whether or not this sexy Elie Saab dress was to show Harry Styles just what his missing but either way this was a hit and a perfect decision for the 23 year old singer and i think she was one of the Best Dressed at the Brit Awards.

Next we have Jessie J in her plunging Versace dress with Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch. I love the fact that she took such a risk because in my books she nailed it. Not many celebs can pull this type of dress off and she defiantly has. I also love her simple hair and makeup as all the focus is on the dress and her natural beauty.  Its daring, fun and flawless on the Brit singer .

22-year-old singer Rita Ora defiantly failed to impress when she stepped out in her orange  Ulyana Sergeenko gown. When i first saw the dress i had a love-hate feeling. I could see the potential and how the high neck vs low back COULD have looked stunning however the frayed edge and the unflattering puff at the back off the dress quickly changed my mind. I found myself finding excuses for this dress but have come to the conclusion it is just not her best look. I wasnt a fan of her hair and makeup either. And Although she’s known for stepping out of the box and not being afraid to look fierce and fabulous this was just a fail and I am disappointed. I expected more. Hopefully next time she’ll step out pulling out all the stops and looking flawless.
