OUTFIT OF THE DAY: WESTERN RED
Yesterday I realised I had a gift voucher I hadn't used on ASOS, so I decided to treat myself. Earlier in the day I'd been into River Island and seen the distressed Black Denim Skirt you can see at the bottom left of the picture. I always wear black bottoms, whether it's mom jeans, skinny jeans, leggings, I realised I didn't actually have a staple black denim skirt. I'm obsessed with western style pieces at the moment and I thought this skirt would lend itself perfectly with some western boots.
I saw these boots in Topshop yesterday and I'm obsessed, they are on my wishlist. I was looking for some cowboy boots, Office had some similar to these but all black. These boots are complete show stoppers, walk down the street in these and you'll turn a few heads. I love the western style but how it transcends over to a glam rock look.
To match the boots I've gone with this Motley Crue T-shirt ( Yes I know who Motley Crue are and I own albums). The accents of red in the design bring the red of the boots sublty through the outfit. The band T-shirt lends itself to this glam rock look. I absolutely love roses and you'll find rose embroidered pieces dotted around the high street at the moment thanks to our leaders in fashion, Gucci. I've kept this rose aspect going throughout the outfit adding this stunning red Regal Rose choker and featuring this incredible Rose Ring from The Great Frog.
I picked up this Western over the shoulder bag from River Island at the end of last year. It's such a stunning piece and extremely cheap for it's design detail. It isn't massively spacious but it's good for a small bag.
Instead of going for a black leather jacket like I normally would I've decided to go for the Biker Jacket style however in suede. I wanted a Biker Jacket fit to match the overall look but I like how the suede gives the jacket a washed/worn look. To finish off the complete look I couldn't not suggest adding a few of the Modern Renaissance shades to eyes. This palette from Anastasia of Beverly Hills is possibly the best palette i've ever owned, it's got such a variety of nude day shades to going out shades. This palette constantly sells out and isn't easy to get your hands on and now I know exactly why. I've finished the look with this eye catching Red Velvet Matte lip colour from Lime Crime.
