Hello buddies, and welcome to my first in a series of posts that will take us all the way round to this time next year! I’m going to be blogging an outfit every month from Junarose, as one of their Junarose Friends. I’m usually cagey about ordering from companies when I don’t know what the fit is like and so stick to the retailers where I know what size to buy and how it compares to my body, so I just had to make the best guess possible when I chose my first items. It turned out pretty well! Unfortunately the beautiful shirt is sold out now, and when I ordered it there was only one size left, which was a size larger than I would usually buy. It’s come up quite long in the arms but fits everywhere else, if a little generous. I love that it has a slightly longer back as it more than covers my a$$.
The shaggy black faux fur gilet is truly wonderful. I got it in an XL and it’s just the perfect fit. It’s going to work so well over so many top/trouser combos that I wear, and I can see it looking great over long-sleeved bodycon dresses too.
On my bottom half I’m wearing Scarlett & Jo wet-look leggings, which felt like the right trousers to go with this outfit. Casual but kind of chic. Altogether I feel like this would make a really excellent date outfit, possibly because I find the mix of textures (fake fur, shiny material, suede etc) really ~sensual~.

And a little bit more detail of the perfect beautiful collar, and my slicked-back hair before it got rained on and wilted…
Oh also here is my new lipstick obsession: Topshop lip bullet in Motel. As far as I can establish. it’s only available in the mini set with Wine Gum. It’s the *perfect* beige for me and has been instrumental in the ’80s powerbitch makeup concept I’ve been trialling this weekend. I’m usually all about mascara-only eyes with a bright or dark lip, but I played around a bit and found that dark eyes and a more natural lip colour actually works for me!
