Witchy Wardrobe [Part 2]



Okay, so I don’t actually aim to look like a witch on purpose, but I couldn’t resist this dress by Band of Gypsies. The brand, which I’ve been following for a while now, is stocked in several UK retailers (like Topshop, Urban Outfitters etc.) and their clothes are uh-mazing...


FURIOUS FAUX FUR JACKET (NAVY): Cheap Monday via Urban Outfitters
CHIFFON BELL SLEEVE DRESS: Band of Gypsies via Topshop
LARGE BRIM HAT: eBay (£3)
BLACK DISCO SHORTS: American Apparel 
JADON BOOTS: Dr Martens
BLACK FRINGED TAPESTRY BAG: River Island

Unfortunately you can’t purchase these gorgeous gypsy garms directly from their website (which is kinda weird) but I guess I prefer to try things on in store anyway. I’m slowly building up a little collection from these guys so watch this space for more from them.

This particular dress is fully sheer, so it came with a black slip dress underneath. It’s really unusual for me to primarily wear black so to break it down a bit I detached the slip dress and just wore some AA hot pants underneath. I feel like I’ve acquired two new dresses with this purchase because I’ve finally got a little slip dress to go underneath all my mesh/sheer/crochet goodies.

Also can we please take a moment to appreciate the fact that for £3 this hat can be yours to own. Thank you eBay! … and please don’t be put off by the slightly misshapen nature of the hat pictured; it has attended a good number of parties/outings and has been a victim, on multiple occasions, of annoying person wanting to steal it off your head syndrome. To complete the look I opted for a bit o’ purple lippy. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I bloody love it. If you’re looking to make the transition over from a lighter shade, I would highly recommend Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Sugar Plum because it’s not too dark and on 3 for 2 offer in Boots atm! I’ve already converted my sister to the dark side with it - we don’t actually have cookies but we can afford to buy some with our leftover lippy funds.      

Sooo… purple lippy… yay or nay? & what are your thoughts on Band of Gypsies clothing?
