Outfit: Absolution

Listening to & inspired by: Absolution by The Pretty Reckless

Today’s outfit post is a little bit different – it’s the first time I’ve taken the photos myself, and inside our apartment. Tiz usually snaps the photos for me, but I wanted to have a go on my own today. This explains the lack of a full body shot! I’ve focussed on the details of the pieces I’m wearing, which has been quite refreshing. I’m also starting a little something new with this post – each of my outfit blogs will now be inspired by a particular song, as I almost always have one in my head when shooting photos. Today is all about Absolution by The Pretty Reckless – click on the link above to listen whilst you read this post!

♥ Jacket – Missguided Adelphe Contrast Quilted Jacket*

♥ Top – H&M Long White Vest

♥ Skirt – H&M Lace Tube Top (I decided to wear it as a skirt!)

♥ Shoes – Missguided Kelly Lace Up Patent Brogues*

I guess one of the reasons the song was in my head is because the outfit is pretty reminiscent of Taylor Momsen’s style – I adore the faux leather jacket, white vest and lace skirt look. I think by teaming it with the brogues I have added a quirky edge to the outfit, and love the patent look matched with the textures of the jacket and skirt. The slick of lipstick rounded the look off, and I’m totally in love with this shade from Smashbox in Black Cherry – it’s now discontinued, but there are a couple of similar shades still around from the brand.

I’m so impressed with the jacket from Missguided – it’s a unique twist on the standard faux leather jacket, and it totally works. The absence of a zip is complemented by the statement oversized collar and lapels, and the shiny sleeves are just fabulous. The shoes are also from the brand, and are similarly wonderful. I’m definitely going to be keeping a close eye on their site!

What do you think of the outfit? I always love your feedback so don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!

Stay Creative,

    I love the idea of creating an outfit based on a song! I just can’t get into the Pretty Reckless. This song is decent. I tend to like male voices more. I bet if a guy was signing it I would like it better but it’s growing on me. Oh! and great outfit 🙂

    I love the jacket and I also liked the idea of how you used a simple top and used it as a skirt.
