A Chic New Years Eve Outfit

IMG_3136IMG_3140

Getting dressed up is one of my favourite things to do, and especially when it’s an outfit that I love. You don’t really get the chance to do it every day, as you’re heading to uni or work, so it’s so nice to spend the time to do your hair and makeup and choose a great outfit to live the night in. New Years Eve is always a special occasion for me and means a lot, so this outfit will have some many memories for me from an amazing night with family, friends and my boyfriend.

IMG_3139The main piece of my outfit was this gorgeous blush pink blazer from LKBennett, and was also such a bargain. It was such a great buy from Biscester Outlet village, and was supposed to be orginally around £348, and I got it for only £83. I couldn’t believe the price tag when i first saw it on the rail, and as soon as i tried it on i fell in love with it. Not only is the colour so gorgeous, it also fits like a glove and looks so classic. It looks elegant and chic, but still has a young, feminine twist, which i know will never go out of style. It’s a piece ill be able to keep in my wardrobe for years and something i know I’ll love forever.

So to make the most of this gorgeous piece, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit fairley simple and put together, to draw the look into one. To do this, I paired the blazer with my favourite black lace cami from new look. I love how chic and femine this looks, and it contrasts the hard tailoring of the blazer perfectly. It’s also so comfortable and such a staple in my wardrobe. I just wish they brought them out again, as i’ve wanted more ever since, and really fancy a grey, mink or blush pink one.

Then, to finish the look off I paired it with a pair of grey, faux leather trousers. They might look a bit weird, but they add so much class to an outfit and a bit of luxury, as it’s not the traditional denim jeans. As well as the trousers, I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to my outfit, and so i added thsi goregous opal necklace, that i bought from a small independant jewellery stall a few years ago. I dont get that much chance to wear it, but it looked perfect with this outfit and the pink of the blazer picked up the pink of the opal perfectly.

What did you wear this New Years Eve?

How to get the look but or less- Little Mix

The girls outfits at the One Direction This Is Us Premiere

One Direction: This Is Us - World Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

As promised here is one of the “How to get the look but for less” from The One Direction: This Is Us Premiere. I felt so inspired by all the fashion at the premiere and thought that as one direction are so popular and a lot of you will have watched vlogs, clips or seen pictures, will mean that you will have seen an outfit and think wow I love that look, “I wish I could rock that, but it’s too expensive!”

 

Well with this post you will be able to rock the look and for a lot less. I love finding style icons and trying to see if i can rock a look a celeb has and it’s even more fun when you can afford to but the things your seeing or trying on. So have a sit down, get a notebook and write down what you want to buy. You may even want a beveridge of some kind, (vimto for me)!

 

Leigh-Anne

She was featured as one of the best dressed woman in my review of the premiere. Check that out here: http://rachelspick.wordpress.com/teen-choice-awards-2012/one-direction-this-is-us-premiere-20813/. This look is just amazing. The  wide trousers and then the very structured peplum top with a plunging cleavage. This look mixes fenime silhouettes and structure with male colours and style. This creates a effortless looks that has everything covered up yet it is still very sexy with the shoulders being on full display and the cleavage. She looks stunning and so can you with this great look for less.

Jade

Jade as being the youngest of the group has gone with a total contrast to her other band mates. She has gone for more of a playful look with a splash of colour with a gold blazer and cute accessories such her elephant necklace. But she has turned the look on it’s head by adding some elegant strappy heels with grungy gold detailing that adds a bit more elegance and chicness to the outfit. She looks beautiful and it really rocks the personal style but still intertwining in the theme with her fellow band mates.

This outfit has been so popular with all the magazines and press. With Perri showcasing her gorgeous new engagemnt ring from her boyfriend Zayn, she did him proud looking stunning at him film prmeiere.

 

This dress was one of the hardest pieces to find a high-street version of, as it being so beautiful and the gorgeous flower detailing and nude mess at the top of the dress. I would not be surprised if this was from an independent designer, that made a one off, wherever she got it she did a great job finding something unique and it was a absolute show stopper. Then she simply added a small pair of black drop earrings to complete the look and her in a simple pony. She just looked so effortless and beautiful!
