Iridescent Adolescent

Will I soon be blitzing the world of youtube, batting Tyler Oakley from the top spot and compiling enough haul videos that it starts to become mildly offensive? The answer is, probably not. Video editing (or indeed anything involving a mild skill) doesn't come easily to me, and so far I've been dipping my toe into the murky waters of youtube with little success. But I soldier on, editing this ootd into video form for no particular reason apart from sheer determination and a qualification in procrastination (Did I just rap)? Watch and subscribe if you will, and I may even do the cinnamon challenge (I will not be doing the cinnamon challenge, or indeed any other challenge).
There is one trend, and one trend only that I can honestly say that I am super excited about. Usually I feel like that's an exaggeration reserved for fashion journalism, but this time I can honestly say that it is very much the case. Iridescent clothing has been peeking it's head up over the fashion horizon recently, and with my aggressive penchant for colourful clothing, I instantly fell for it. The way that it creates so many different colours depending on the light makes me feel like I'm some sort of shiny beacon of rainbow colours, like in science or something, I don't know. All I know is that anything which slightly changes colour and tint will be in my wardrobe before you can say 'gullible fashionista.'

This dress is such a find for me (find out more about it in the video!) It fits like a glove and I'm glad I 'stole' it from my mum before she put it on ebay. The asymmetric skirt gives off mermaid vibes, which is a look I've been obsessed with recently (see my other mermaidy post from August). It would be great to wear for a family gathering, a date, or as I've been wearing it in the daytime layered with a longsleeve top.

Do I even need to sing the praises of this coat again? Probably, I mean, why not? It is that incredible. I'm so glad I snapped it up in the asos sale! It's honestly been one of the funnest things to style ever! I feel like this specific look pertains to updated Hollywood glamour, although unlike many of what stars of old would have had draped around their shoulders, this ain't real.

Another note on the hair - I'm really thrilled with how it has been lasting at the moment. I think I may have cracked the code on long lasting hair colour - at last! I'm thinking of compiling a series of hair dye posts (and maybe youtube videos when I get over my crippling awkwardness) as I'd like to share some of the things I have learnt on this hair dye Odyssey. I think purple may really be the colour for me...for now *vanishes into a puff of smoke*.

  1. just fierce! this coat with your hair make a perfect combo, omg! and even though I'm into darker color again, I'm trying not to lose my old love for colors. I just got an amazing iridescent nail polish and this type of stuff is SO great. and looks amazing with black.

  2. Your hair is so freaking amazing:)

  3. Wow, amazing look! Love the dress and the photographs are stunning xx

  4. You hair is amazing and I love the fur jacket!

  5. Purple is the colour for you and I'll be forever envious of yiur bright purple hair. After a chunk falling out fir no reason what so ever my sister will never bleach my whole hair again so I'll never achieve your colour, so I'll just be living my hair dreams through you.
    Plus it adds to the mermaids vibe you have in which totally justifies you buying a lot of irredesent clothing

  10. I'm so envious of your ease to put an outfit together like this - I'm such a wimp when it comes to wearing colours, nevermind mixing and matching them! Your coat is so fabulous, it looks like it's been dipped in watercolours and that makes me want it. Probably just to look at, I'm not brave enough to pull this look off! You however, look amazing lady. I'm glad you saved the dress from Ebay, I recently 'saved/stole' some things of my mum's that she'd set aside for Ebay. Being similar sizes to siblings and mothers is a blessing! xxx

  14. Your outfit is fantastic! I love love love your coat (still) and it looks great with your dress. I'm obsessed with everything irridescent / holographic too. I think I need to invest in more holographic clothes before the trend passes, ha! xx
