ROAR.

dress: asos
jacket: dotti
tights: ambra
shoes: betts
necklace: diva
nails: essie 'off the shoulder' and 'fear or desire'

It was actually boyfriend who suggested that I wear this dress today when I was um-ing and ah-ing  in front of my wardrobe. I'm not sure if he actually thought I should wear it, was been silly or just suggested the first thing he saw so that I'd put something on and not stand there for ages. I don't wear alot of leopard print as it tends to be a little out there for my taste but every now and them something comes along that catches me eye. I really liked the fit of this dress (however, as I learnt today it's not a good idea to wear a swing dress on a windy day) and thought I'd take a risk and buy it. Still not sure about the print I thought I'd wear it with black tights (these fleecy ones from ambra are my favourites for winter) and my biker jacket to downplay the print a little. I added a snood (love that word!) before I left as it was chilly (again!) today. Boo!

I added an accent nail this morning as I really wanted to try out another nail polish from the Essie summer collection. While I couldn't call 'Fear or Desire' a neon, it does come really close and is a lovely bright orange. I'm thinking about walking down to American Apparel to have a look at their nail polishes and potentially (read: definitely) adding a few to my (rapidly growing) collection. Do you have an favourite AA nail polish shade? I really like the neon green!
