What I Wore: Panic! At The Disco Concert

Hi! On Monday I was lucky enough to see one of my favourite bands, Panic! At The Disco, in Edinburgh!  The gig itself was totally amazing, I went with my twin sister and three of my friends and we all loved it - there's just something awesome about seeing a band that you've been a fan of for so long!

Anyway, I thought I'd show you my outfit, because when you go to a concert or a gig its important to be comfy, but you might want to look stylish as well!

Here's my whole outfit:  black disco pants (for those not in the know, think: really shiny high-waisted leggings), a tank top, jacket and boots.  I can tell you that Edinburgh in November is really freaking cold - I was ok because it was only a short walk from the car to Starbucks, and then to the Picturehouse, and my jacket was quite cosy, but if you do have to walk for a while to be somewhere, layer up!

This is the print of the top I was wearing (which I actually picked up at a clothes-swap!) and I think these little monkey faces are adorable!  (if a little freaky...they kinda look like sugar skulls!)

This is a close-up of the print on my jacket (from a charity shop), its kind of an Aztec-print which I really love, but I also think that the black and white stops it from being too crazy - even though its definitely a loud piece of clothing anyway!

I turned the sleeves up just a tiny bit so that the edges were white - as well as preventing my sleeves from being too long, I like the little detail.

My boots are my trusty old favourites - if you go back through all my blog posts these will definitely make a few appearances!  They're from Next, and since I've had them for about 3 years now they don't sell them any more, but Next is great for boots like these, and if you're looking for durability its definitely the place to go! There hasn't been any substantial wear on the soles or heels at all, and even though they're a little more roughed up than they were when I first got them, I think it adds to the slightly grungy look of them!  (when I got these they retailed at about £60-70)

Er, yeah, I'm sorry for my slightly scary fluorescent glowing eyes here...blame camera flash!

And lets not forget one very important accessory - the wristband I bought at the concert!!

Finishing with a few arty photos - the last two are me and my sister, check out her hairstyle, isn't it pretty?!
I hope that you enjoyed this post, some of the photos have been edited differently to normal, but since I was wearing black and white, it didn't really matter!

Have a fantabulous day! :)  <3

My Halloween OOTD

Hi!  Today I have a (late!) Halloween post for you - unfortunately, I didn't have any time to do any actual Halloween posts, but I thought that I would show you what I wore, as it is actually quite a cute outfit!  

First off, my makeup.  I really like how this turned out - all I did was use a pale foundation (since its Halloween and all) and then filled in my eyebrows (they're actually quite dark, but the light washes the out in the picture a little - I made them darker so that they didn't get lost with my strong eye makeup, but never too dark or they'll just be fighting with all that black eyeshadow!).  My lips were simple - line with black eyeliner (or a black those exist?) smudge towards the centre of your mouth, and fill the centre with a dark red lip colour, it looks really awesome!  My eyes were kind of Black Swan inspired - I was going to tie my hair into a tight ballet bun to match, but didn't have the time!  I covered my lids in black eyeshadow (do this before your foundation...I didn't.  Stupidly.  It got all over my face.) then blended out the edges, and after that I drew on massive cat-eye flicks!  The rest is easy: loads of little feathery lines pointing side-ways, and even a few little lines underneath my lash line at the corner of my eye to give a feather -like effect (it also makes you look like you have giant eyelashes!).  Finally, set the majority of the liner (I used gel eyeliner, by the way) with black eyeshadow (not the little feathery bits, because then you'll cover them and have to start again!).

Here are some more picture of my full outfit - of course, the pink socks are optional, but I was having a movie-night-in with some friends, so heels just didn't cut it!  Continuing with my Black Swan theme, I chose this black gauzy skirt which is kind of like a casual tutu!?!  In any case, its puffy and sparkly and I love it!  Underneath the skirt I wore my black disco pants (its a VERY short skirt) which I like better than regular black leggings because they're a bit sheeny-shiny and put a little twist on the outfit.

I ended up going for this very cool little tank top - it has little monkey/sugar-skull designs all over it, which I thought was appropriate for Halloween!  I then completed the look with a little black bracelet and my current favourite blue Gelly nailpolish from Barry M - adding in one gold nail for a bit of glam!

Here you can see my makeup more clearly - I also blended in some browns to the inner half of my eye for a little more dimension.

I'll leave you with this picture of my little brother - my sister did his Halloween makeup and I think its fab (and terrifying!).

Hope you enjoyed this little post - leave a comment or give me a follow if you did - I really do appreciate it!
Have a fantabulous day! :)  <3
