You know how last week I wore that cord A-line skirt that I wasn't initially sure about but decided I loved? Well, I ended up liking it so much that I bought a matching burgundy one too! Ami and I went to Winchester a few days ago and we used my new camera to take some cute outfit photos. Guys, this camera is a game changer!
As for the red velvet shoes, I initially bought them to wear with this dress but, unfortunately, the dress is a bit of a funny length on me and I'm looking into having it taken up. Despite that, they are perfect with this skirt so I was glad to give them their first outing. Notice the tiny heel? I know it's not much, but as someone who never walks in heels of any height, I was triumphant to comfortably walk around in these all afternoon. When I got home, I excitedly told Rich about how comfy they were, and how they hadn't been rubbing at all, only to take my tights off and discover they'd lopped a chunk out of my left heel. How they managed to do it without me feeling any discomfort is anyone's guess but, to be honest, I don't care if they mangle every single one of my toes, so long as I don't feel any pain.
Since I've been all about taking risks lately, I veered away from my usual pink lipstick in favour of something a bit more bold and autumnal. As I raced out of the door, I picked up Viva Glam Rihanna which I admittedly thought was more of a berry shade than the bright, glossy red it turned out to be. If I'm completely honest, I didn't feel entirely comfortable wearing it as I always feel like I make a mess of red lips, but it looks alright in the photos. Annoyingly, it needed loads of reapplication as it slid off every time I so much as looked at a drink but I think I'll try another red lipstick for my next outing.
