I've been brainstorming looks for my work Christmas party, I wanted to do something different instead of the generic sparkly dress that everyone seems to go for at this time of year. I've had my eye on this colour block sleeveless polo neck knit for a while now, and to my delight it's now in the sale for a tenner no less! As always, I took to Polyvore and tried to work a look around it. I teamed it with a simple pair of tapered smart black trousers, I chose this pair from RI as the hem falls just above the ankle perfect for showing off these metal toe cap courts from H&M! I added the ruby ring and Red MAC lippy to make the monochrome getup POP that little bit more. As I was about to order the top online, my boyfriend decided he'd air his opinion, which went something like "That's hideous, you'll look like Cruella de Vil in that!" Needles to say I put off buying it, BUT I'm still in love with this look. Maybe it's my inner child that's channelling my lifelong want to be a glamorous, fashion forward Disney villainess!? (I'm not sure that's an actual word, but hey it sounds cool.) Maybe I should let my subconscious dictate my outfit choices more often, or maybe not?
