Orange, leopard print and faux fur...

For me, Autumn is all about cosy textures and warm colours and I am always really pleased when I can dig out all of my darker coloured accessories- I love wearing the colour brown but it just doesn't look right in the summer! This beautiful orange/red dress is from Tesco (where else could it be from?!) and I bought it at the same time as my lovely tweed skirt. Unlike the skirt, it is still available on the website although it looks much shorter on me than it does on the model, I was planning on wearing the dress with nude tights and some ankle boots but I think it would have looked a bit indecent!

Dress: Tesco, tights: Tesco, faux fur gilet: charity shop (unbranded), belt: New Look, shoes: New Look
I picked up this gilet in the charity shop at the beginning of the year despite having my own D.I.Y. gilet this one is a lot more streamlined and is much less of a 'statement', it definitely raises less eyebrows when I wear it out! I have been wearing a lot of vampy nail colours recently and recently had to repurchase my favourite dark nail varnish, Max Factor's Ruby Fruit is my Rouge Noir dupe of choice!


I have been a lot more confident with wearing darker lipsticks this year and I really love the pared back look with the really dramatic lips. Unfortunately my skin has now gone completely mental so it will be a while before I wear this little foundation/concealer!


How are you easing yourself into Autumn?

I think dark lipstick, (actually, just lipstick in general!) really suits your face, this colour is lovely on you. Really love that gilet too, it looks so cozy & the orange is great against the browns & neutrals :)

That faux fur gilet looks SO snuggly! I agree, I wear lots of brown in Autumn although I have worn the odd bit in Summer. ;)

The orange looks lovely on you, I've had such an urge to wear orange now I've dyed my hair red, but it looks so lovely with dark hair as well. Should have worn it more before! Also, when I read your post I was a bit worried you might have bought the coat I recently have- its orange with a leopard print faux fur collar! I love the combo of leopard and orange, it makes me feel like I'm in the Flintstones!
Also yes, we must meet up soon :)

Orange looks so lovely on you, I can't stand it on me. Beautiful shape of dress though and glad I'm not the only one who has length issues. I'm easing into autumn by pulling on my favourite biker jacket and I'm about to repair the buttons to the faux fur collar can be reattached to it, perfect inbetween of coat and jacket. I'm also back to being attached to my big pashmina scarves in a multitude of colours. I'm desperate to find a lighter cotton print scarf, but it has to be pashmina sized. Talk about girl problems!
