Red and Black Week 2013, day 4: heatwave fashion



It's day four of Sophistique Noir's Red and Black Week! I'd have liked to have shown you some of the craft projects I've been working on, but I never managed to get the fabric on time and so I'm afraid that plan had to be scuppered. So it's back to outfit posts for me!

Not seen - pair of red shoes. It was too hot to take more than a few photos.

I have to be honest and say that this one isn't my best - the temperatures peaked yesterday when I was preparing this post, and I was overheated and tired (hence the grumpy expression). Still, it was fun to play with the simplicity of the dress and the use of colour pops.

I love the heart shaped cut out on the back of this.
Also on a red and black theme is my most recent ebay purchase, which will arrive today -
Included here because it has a red lining. (Picture taken from here.)
I've always wanted a coffin bag, and I finally got myself one! :D


I do actually have more elaborate things planned for the next two days, thankfully, though I think they will be posts mainly focusing on make up. 


Until then, best wishes!

    1. Thank you! Miraculously it's cloudy today, so the temperature has dropped somewhat - still, it's going to be a while yet before it's back to normal scottish dreichness. :P

    1. I was tempted by the cross ones I saw, but the bat one was the only one I knew had a shoulder strap. Still, there's always my birthday...

    1. I should probably be appalled at my willingness to fill all the stereotypes, but I like the design too much to care. ;)

  6. I always find it fun when an outfit is simple from the front but features some fabulous surprise detail on the back. The heart cutout is adorable! Great idea accessorizing the dress with red - normally hearts are depicted in red so this is a nice switch-up!

    1. Yeah, I absolutely love the design of this dress - the cut out on the back stops it being too plain. I'm sad because it's beginning to show it's age, so I'll have to see if it comes back ever, or try and make a pattern of it. Thank you for the compliments!

  8. I really like the dress you're wearing here :3 The cut-out heart on the back really gives it that extra something ^^ I'm also very jealous of your coffin bag!
