No looking back in 2013!

I didn’t kick off 2013 by partying all night on NYE unlike every year as I had to work on a paper that was due for submission but too much work and no play makes it all boring so as soon as the 2013 sun shined in London, I headed for a day out on 1st january to see the New year’s parade in London’s Trafalgar Square, later  went for ice skating in Somerset House. I donned a very summer-y top with leather dots and a chiffon shirttail. I would still consider it winter fashion as it has leather dots all over in the front. I wore my red corduroy chinos and black leather boots as it was freezing cold. No I didn’t go out just wearing that, a heavy black long overcoat and and a cashmere shawl to cover my neck.

By now, probably you all know that I collect pieces.  I picked up this authentic hand embroidered pure Pashmina shawl some about 7/8 years ago, I  hardly wore them ever, so this time thought to wear as ”heavy neck scarf” which is the trend of the season.

IMG_9446IMG_9435With leather details and colored trousers, I had to go very light on the eyes, so just drew my eye line with black and then drew another line above with the golden eye liner from Chanel. A red lips was so needed when the eye make-up was neutral. I have been loving the sparkly nails since the winter begun, I had this hot pink nails with glittery head on the first day of the year and completely besotted by the very spark of it.
