Black & Gold

(Bralet: Topshop/Skirt: Primark/Blazer: River Island/Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell via Office)

Finally! I have managed to create an outfit post. I have seeeeriously been slacking on these since I came back from holiday in August! I just found it difficult to get decent pictures with my old camera and the focus wasn't great. But for Christmas I got the, Canon 600d which I'm loving at the moment. I'm no expert, so these pictures aren't perfect but hopefully, practice will make perfect once I spend enough time fiddling about with it. 
I wore this last night to my friend's birthday and this is the first time I've ever worn a pencil-slash-midi skirt of this kind. I had been trying to find this skirt from Primark for absolutely bloody ages and eventually I did. Soooo in love with it and at only £10 you can't really go wrong. I paired the skirt with this Topshop bralet which I picked up in the sale. I thought this would go perfectly with the skirt as the gold studs really compliment the gold thread running through the skirt.
I also wore my beloved Jeffrey Campbell Foxy's in Burgundy. Although these shoes really don't look comfortable in the slightest they really are the most comfy heels I own (along with the Foxy Spike which I also own). 
To keep with the Red, Gold and Black theme, I used a combination of Gold and Black eye-makeup and on my lips I wore a combination of MAC's lipliner in, 'Cherry' and one of my favourite MAC lipstick's ever - 'Ruby Woo'. If you are pale like me, this is definitely the lipstick you should get as it really compliments the skin tone. Plus, it lasts on the lips all night so it's perfect for clubbing/evening out occasions.

As I'm getting the hang of my camera now I will be trying to do a lot more outfit posts as they are my favourite type of post. It's the new year too so I'm definitely going to make that one of my resolutions! 

P.S: I took these pictures at night with flash - If anybody knows know how to make sure the background is always White (like the picture of me in the Blazer) can you please leave me a comment! I'm such a camera novice at the moment.
