OMCZ - One item three ways

Challenge 30#
One item three ways- This weeks challenge theme has been chosen by Erin! Here is what she she said "Blogging about fashion while living on a budget can be difficult. There is a lot of pressure to keep up with trends and be the first to display a relevant piece. Because it does not suit my finances or lifestyle to constantly purchase new items, I love creating multiple looks around one piece to really stretch the life of my wardrobe. I challenge all of you to create a 'One Item + Three Ways' look to either showcase an item through multiple seasons, or for multiple occasions."

Outfit one

Skirt - ASOS Curve
Top - ASOS Curve
Shoes - Simply Be
Belt - Fat swop

Outfit two

T shirt - Primark
Shoes - Primark

Outfit three

Swimsuit - Forever 21
Shoes - Primark

I had to be quite creative this week, i'm at home for Easter holidays and have a limited wardrobe with me. I picked the skirt as they are the most easy items to mix and match with. I really like the swimsuit, it has a cut out detail under the bust and a halter neck. The sweetie print top is just adorable and the black and white check it actually cover in sequins, i like how the pattern repeats in the skirt. The skirt is beautiful, the underskirt is actually quite short compared to the top layer, i am wearing a 22.

Dress - ASOS Curve

I've had this dress for a while now, i just loved the shape and print, but i didn't have anywhere to really wear it, but as i've been unwell recently and barely getting out of my jammies i decided a bit of dressing up was needed. I love how clothes can make you feel better, not physically of course, but putting some effort into your appearance and putting on a lovely dress can perk up your mood and get you out of your ill funk. I have no idea if i have tied this dress correctly but oh well i like the effect, i also think a chunky belt would work with it. Yes it does have an air of a silk nightie about it, maybe that was why i felt so happy in it, wasn't too much of a stretch from my jammies.

London Outing

Top - Live Unlimited 
Cardgian - Asda
Necklace - Primark

On Tuesday i went to London to see Russell Howard at The Royal Albert Hall. The venue is truly stunning and one of the most beautiful theatres i have been too and we were two rows from the front so had a great view; i had to stop myself rushing the stage and touching him. The show was very funny (i don't care for your personal opinion on my taste in stand up comedy). I have seen every one of Howard's tours since 2006 now, just as he started appearing on Mock The Week so it has been nice to follow his journey. His sister gave birth while he was on stage so at the end of the show he phoned her and her us all to sing to his nephew. I also went for a mooch around Selfridges with my poor brother in tow, i spent ages cooing over the beauty counters and even made a few cheeky purchases.
