Jacket - Therapy (old) / Top - Emoda (old) / Skirt - M&S

Lyrics in title from I Made a Promise to the Moon by Jason Webley

So we're at my last outfit post of 2016! I dressed up festively for the occasion and everything. Black counts as festive around here. I wore this to dinner at Dishoom with some friends I went to uni with (feels weird typing that in past tense). I paired my black velvet skirt with my gorgeous Emoda top. I love the small ruffles on the high neckline - a feminine touch without going overboard. Not that I have a problem with going overboard - it is the party season after all. I like a casual contrast to a fancy outfit, so I threw on a denim jacket. Thankfully the weather wasn't too cold that day so I didn't freeze during the shoot.

King's Cross has been my favourite place to hang out recently, mostly for its places to eat. It's also a great place to shoot outfit photos. These were taken opposite Google's London HQ. Google if you're reading this, I'm the crazy lady that was loitering outside your offices the other day. Hire me. I also have to give props to Faaizah for meeting me before dinner to take these photos for me. She had to deal with bad light conditions and a light drizzle, and on top of that she has to put up with me on a regular basis. So a big thank you to you Faaizah, and a thank you to all my friends who've made this year bearable. And a big thank you to you reading my blog! May 2017 treat you right.
