On Friday night I was sponsor to my cousin for her confirmation. With great honour comes great responsibility, and so I needed to look the part of a mature, responsible young adult.
I had never been stuck for ideas for an outfit, nor had I been on a strict budget that would limit me from my original ideas for an outfit, so I had to pull my resources and hit up my local shopping centre, forcing me to rediscover and forage for pieces that would help me to achieve my aim of looking fashionable, mature and dependable.
I was pleasantly surprised when I bought two very simple pieces that, when combined, gave me not only an elegant, sophisticated look, but a slimming and flattering effect.
It started with a Black and White polka dot cami from Bardot. Then I went into Sportsgirl and found a mid length leatherette skirt. These two items made me feel like I had revolutionised my wardrobe.
Both items were so versatile that not only did they work wonders when put together, but individually I found I can wear the skirt with knitted jumpers, singlets and jackets of all colours. The cami could be dressed up or down with jeans, leggings and even mini skirts.
With it I wore black wedges, silver jewellery and a black clutch with silver sparkles, which all complimented each other piece really well.
