Sorry I'm a little late posting (3 days..!!) but I've been at Reading festival this weekend and I flew out to France on monday.  The internet out here isn't great but it's better than nothing, so hopefully I'll be able to keep posting regularly while I'm here.  I'll be working on my tan so prepare yourself for some super tanned outfit posts when I return to England!

 Metal collar // H&M [link]
'Glow stick' neon dress* // Lulu's [link]
Metal cuff // eBay
Inverted cross earring // Reading fest 2011
Shoes // eBay [link]
Rings // Rachael Sudlow [link], etsy, eBay, Thomas Sabo, Tatty Devine [link]

The only thing I don't like about this outfit is that I really wish I'd worn a belt with it! The photos were taken at my mums and because I've been living at my dads house more recently I left all my nice belts at his house, so I had to make do without.  I adore this dress, and I'm so disappointed at how badly my camera translates the colour of it.  It's a really bright neon pink but it doesn't come out as amazing on camera which sucks.  I bought these shoes off eBay and I'm not totally sure if  I like them that much.  I feel they were more of a novelty buy but I still wear them nevertheless!

Tribeca Shoes Haul!

Lola black spiked boots* // £35 Tribeca Shoes [link]
I was sent these shoes and you'll have seen them on my instagram if you follow me because I am totally head over heels in love with them!  I couldn't wait to show you guys so I had to take some photos before featuring them in an outfit post (which I will do very soon!).  They're dupes of the Jeffrey Campbell spiked Lita's which, let's be honest, I'm never going to be able to afford with the crappy £5.25 I get an hour at my job so at £35 these shoes aren't going to break the bank!  I was actually very surprised at the quality.  At the price they're asking I didn't think they were going to be particularly amazing, as many of the spiked dupes I've seen on the blogosphere haven't been very good, but these are a great height, they feel sturdy, I find them easy to walk in, the leather doesn't look plasticky or flimsy, it doesn't smell like the handbag section in Primark (!) and the spikes don't look crappy, they are actual extended spikes rather than the plain cone studs with I like.  Another bonus is the Louboutin-esque red sole which makes the shoes that much more badass! I'd definitely recommend having a look on the Tribeca Shoes website here as their prices are awesome and the shoes are all absolutely jaw-droppingly beautiful!

TRENDING : Metal Hardware

Anything that's hard and very shiny seems to be extremely hot right now.  I actually own two things on this list, the H&M peter pan necklace and the silver chain cuff, but I'm really lusting after the many other beauties in H&M at the moment and I'm thinking about ankle cuffs but I don't know if they'd suit me or if they'd just look a bit strange!  This kind of simple, minimalistic really reminds me of Ivania's blog Love Aesthetics as all of her jewellery rotates around this style as well as incorporating clear perspex as well, which is just awesome.  What do you think of the high shine metal trend?
