My tradition is the art of superstition

Jumpsuit: ASOS | Necklace: New Look | Earrings: ASOS | Shoes: Peacocks
Back in May, I had a wedding to attend. I'm the type of person that will plan an outfit for a wedding from months ahead and I obsess over the outfit that I want to wear. I like to have a plan, a list of things that I want to do, want to buy, need to do..I'm a list person. Most of the time, this extends to the outfits that I want to wear. I first saw this jumpsuit on the 'New in' Category on ASOS and ever since then I checked it online daily. In the end (obviously), I bought it and fell in love with it. 
I also planned the hair style I wanted for this particular look which is an old hollywood glamour hair style..meaning waves and bouncy curls at the end. I have very long hair (see the above) and I had an idea that maybe it couldn't happen. What I didn't expect was my hairdresser to style my hair..weirdly. Basically using a straightener to create the hairstyle and after telling her that I once tried it using a straightener and that it fell, she reassured me that it should hold. It didn't...needless to say I was disappointed. I love the way she cuts my hair but she doesn't exactly follow the style that I want when I need it to be styled. There are a couple of other hairdressers that I want to try out so that maybe I could see whether it's my hair length that's a problem, or maybe if it's my hairdresser who doesn't a 100% know how to handle my hair length. We shall see!
Let me know what you think about my outfit!

We'll drive where we always do

Playsuit: New Look | Shoes: New Look | Necklace: New Look | Earrings: ASOS
It feels like an age and a half since I've blogged last. I've been beyond busy for nearly 2 months now. I'm in my final year, meaning thesis and non stop work and it's only now that I've actually got some time for myself..sort of.
Sunday usually means dressing up, going out and generally having a relaxed day. Last Sunday was the first time in well over a month that I've actually been able to do that. It was nice to be out of the house, into fresh air and just generally not having to sit down all day in front of a computer making sure I meet deadlines.
About a month ago New Look had a bit of a sale and I bought a few bits, one of which is this long sleeved black playsuit. I've been wanting a playsuit like this for absolutely ages, but most of the ones that I saw were a bit too short. So this one is perfect for me! Also, these shoes. These SHOES. A gray-blue platform heel? Yes please! I couldn't resist buying them and fell in love with them on sight (so obviously that means instantly adding them to my bag without even thinking about it)!
