DIY: A Glorious Two-Piece







The two-piece has definitely become fashion's latest victim, every blogger and fashion enthusiast alike have fallen for the coordinated elegance the two-piece allows. Perhaps its the fact that it allows for the laziest dress-up any girl could want. There is no thought process behind putting the outfit together, it pretty much does the work for you! Or maybe its the diversity of the two piece, there is a different styles or cuts for any occasion. Ranging from the casual daytime look Missguided have perfected or Boohoo's elegantly designed nighttime range. The options are endless! And for a generation obsessed with crop tops and high-waisted, it's really the best of both worlds!

When 888Sport contacted me to take part in the Glorious Goodwood Ladies Day Competition, I knew a skirt and bralet two-piece would be perfect for the occasion. Because although it maintains the nostalgic elements for going to the races, it also adds a modern twist to the event. So reaching for my scissors and sewing machine, I rescued an old dress from the back of my wardrobe and instantly turned it into the outfit you are seeing. By adding a sweet headpiece I found online and my trusted gold heels, I am ready to place so bets!!!

The weekend is close guys, hope you are enjoying the lovely weather!
Lots of Love

#purplehairdontcare


Bustier: Ebay £3, Leather shorts: Cafe society £5, Choker: Regal Rose(gifted)

I dont regret my decision to cut my hair but I did feel slightly naked without it. I was always constantly checking if it was long enough to have extensions put in. The choice of colour was however a spontaneous decision, I have been spending a lot of my days on tumblr, reblogging gorgeous girls with purple hair so I thought I would try it out. I toke me 3 days straight to braid my entire hair. I mixed colours, alternating from deep purple to lilac leaving the ends lighter to create a ombre effect.  Arguably having this hair in the middle of a heatwave is undoubtedly a bad idea but its summer and a free care attitude comes with it. 

Hope you have a lovely week,
Lots of Love,
Vanessa

Burning eyes, Beating sun





 I see the sun yet every inch of me questions how true it is to the temperature outside. So I cover up thinking the worst, surely every brit can relate to this. Yesterday's heatwave made me a bait to my own outfit choices, every fabric clinging to me and my jewellery weighing heavily all the same. I craved for a cool breeze and headed for any shade I could find. But true to its impending nature, hailstorms and thunder soon took over the night and I was rest assured that my wariness of the british weather was restored.

Wishing you guys a great weekend,
All my love
Vanessa
