Welcome December!


A new month, a new look, & several new additions to my wardrobe :) 








I was wearing:
Amber feather vest - Club Monaco
Black long-sleeve bodysuit - American Apparel
Burgundy trousers - Zara
Multi-strand necklace - Forever 21
Nude suede foxy platforms - Jeffrey Campbell

These photos for my latest 'Look of the Day' didn't come out at all how I'd hoped, but I can't help but love this outfit & all these pieces to bits! The trousers, bodysuit, & vest are my newest closet acquisitions. 

If you follow me on Twitter, you may know something of the ordeal it's been trying to get this stunning feather vest (with silk lining) from Club Monaco. After selling out, days in replenishment boxes, & wrong sizes I finally got it last night! Perma-smile, seriously. I really have to say another huge thank you to the wonderful girls at Club Monaco on Robson who graciously put up with my numerous phone calls & questions over this one. It's such a unique statement piece, but I have so many great outfit ideas planned for it! I know it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really do love it :) The Zara trousers on the other hand I'm a little peeved with, having not stretched at all as I was assured they would. Still, they are a beautiful colour & I still have some hope on the stretch... And the bodysuit of course is a wonderful staple. I own the short-sleeve version in several colours, but this one is perfect for the colder seasons. 

Other than new items my life seems to be work work work! I'll be working quite frequently up until my Christmas holidays, so I was quite glad to get this outfit shoot in before work this morning. Are any of you similarly busy with work or school? I think the fact that Christmas is coming up makes it seem even busier than usual! On which note, I can't believe how soon Christmas is! I'm such a holiday person & am terrifically excited haha :) Admittedly I've been watching Christmas movies & listening to xmas tunes every spare moment I get.

Now then - I'm off to bed for the evening! Wishing you all a lovely & festive month <3
