OOTD: Leap Year


Red Velvet Shirt: Charity Shop, £3. Embellished Crucifix Skirt: Topshop, £36. Ankle Socks & Tights: Primark, £1.50 & £2.00. Double Sole Creepers: Underground, £92. Necklace: Topshop Sale, £1.50.


Happy Leap Year! So, today is the only day a woman can step outside of tradition by romantically pursuing a man and ask for his hand in marriage. Go get him, girls! I am completely aware I posted a really similar look here a couple of weeks ago, but hey-ho! This skirt just goes so well with velvet blouses and I have many a velvet blouse! Wearing these double sole creepers are becoming a daily workout for my calves, I tell you! They're so heavy that I'll soon actually have calves of steel! It's also a rather difficult and calculated task to just walk up the stairs in them as you have to account for an extra 2 inches. Many a time have I kicked my foot on the stair whilst wearing them. Thankfully, there have been no accidents involving me actually tripping up as of yet.

I have the busiest two weeks ever ahead of me. I have a critique tomorrow morning for illustration work that's being put into a show we're putting on at our university next week. Also, at Urban Outfitters we're hosting a student lock-in on Tuesday night where I'm going to be photographing street style for them, followed by my boyfriend's birthday on the Thursday and then a 3000 word essay to accompany a journal due in the week after! Oh, and I also have a meeting tomorrow for a potentially exciting project that could be in the works for this blog. Cue nervous breakdown.
