All black everything…

Dress – C/O INLOVEWITHFASHION    Hat – H&M    Shoes – Topshop Boutique     Bag – H&M     Bracelets – Topshop    Necklace – H&M    Lipstick – M.A.C. Impassioned

I’ve always maintained that my dress sense is usually a reflection of my mood and unfortunately guys, I’m going through a pretty rough time at the moment, so you may need to bare with me in regards to depressing tweets and status’ but I’ll be alright so don’t you worry now.
On the contrary, even though this is my depressing outfit, as me and my new blogger buddy Ngoni  discussed over dinner and vino the other night, you can just NEVER go wrong with an all black outfit, effortless and chic so that is exactly why I picked this from the New Arrivals page on the Love website this week. I absolutely love it, its just one of those dressers that can go from day to night in a heart beat, and me being the lazy fowker that I am, find that an extreme selling point!
I also thought I’d show you guys a better quality picture of my hair from behind (also I don’t really see the back of me all that often so its for me aswell). Obviously many of you saw the not so positive comment about my hair in yesterdays post but I promise it hasn’t changed my love for my new hair. The reason why I did it was because I’m never going to cut my hair, I’ve learnt to accept that now, I just do not suit anything but long hair. But I also felt like my hair was portraying more of a glamorous person, which I don’t feel is really me right now.
I got my hair done at the Christian Wiles Salon in Northampton after I spent some time pestering whoever looks after their facebook page. I then randomly dropped by and was informed that they had two experts in Ombre hair (or as they call it, Smudging) I was put into the hands of the absolutely hilarious Matt, a Scouser with an obvious love for what he does, because quite frankly, I loved every minute of the experience, he kept me entertained whilst also at complete ease as when I visit hair dressers, I tend to get heart palpitations…Oh and I forgot to mention, the head massage….anyone had one of those at the Hair Salon? Ever had one so good that you have to try so hard not to show how much your enjoying it and don’t want it to end? YEAH THAT!

    Love this outfit. You definitely can never go wrong with all black.
    Love the pop of colour from the lipstick.
    & Don’t take to heart the bad things people say. That “anonymous” person was so stupid. Blatantly jealous that they can’t rock the ombré or too scared to. Your new hair looks nice!

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:16 pm

      So glad you like it Nabz!
      I may play the clown most of the time but this clown got a heart and its a big soft gooey one haha!! xx

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:18 pm

      Yeyyyyyy! I keep looking in the mirror and going “Oh Haiiiiii new hair!!!” haha x

  4. Heather Louise 10th March 2012 / 5:56 pm

    Can’t beat an all black outfit if you ask me! Looks fab and the hair is lovely!

  5. Sarah 10th March 2012 / 9:40 pm

    gorgeous as per usual, i’m loving these style cut out dresses at the moment!

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:19 pm

      It’s a simple way of staying mostly covered but giving just a peep of some skin! 🙂 x

  6. VictoriasProcrastinationProject 10th March 2012 / 10:52 pm

    You looking stunning – your legs go on forever. I love black, you can never go wrong!

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:19 pm

      They go on forever because there’s no difference between them and my bum hahaha, like an ironing bored, me! x

  7. Klara 10th March 2012 / 11:03 pm

    I agree when you are feeling down this comes out in what you wear. It’s hard to wear bright colour or prints when you feel like just fading in. I hope whatever has happened/is happening is sorting itself out for you. You look gorgeous in black as always.

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:20 pm

      Isn’t it amazing how your mood effects your style! I’m so glad I’m not the only one haha xx

  8. Sadie 11th March 2012 / 12:54 am

    I need to wear all black more often, love this whole outfit! I love head massages at the hairdressers, I find them so relaxing that I struggle not to fall asleep. Last time I went the women next to started to get her hair washed and just piped up at the hairdresser “If you do head massages when you wash hair, don’t, I hate it”. I was laid there thinking are you crazy?! Who could hate that?! 🙂 xx

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:22 pm

      Omg she clearly needs to take a chill pill, they are literally the BEST thing ever!!!! Black never fails though eh? xx

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:22 pm

      I used to be the same but I’m more brave these days, it’s all this print clashing that I’m scared of haha!!! x

  9. Belle du Brighton 11th March 2012 / 9:14 am

    Looking gorgeous as ever. Smudging, ha! never heard it called that before. Everytime my mum sees me she goes ‘oh lauren, and do you STILL like your hair looking like that? You look you cant afford hair dye for your roots’ MUMS EH?

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:24 pm

      Yeah they call it smudging because he put the colour on my roots and then bleach on the bottom, and with his fingers litterally smudged the two together!! AMAZING eh? My mum hasn’t seen mine yet but I know she wont appreciate hahaha x

  10. Bells 11th March 2012 / 10:16 am

    Your hair is just amazing! Love the lipstick 🙂 x

    I love your hair, I recently cut mine quite short and am missing having long hair to play around with!! Your outfit is gorgeous and I really like your blog! I’m following now so I can keep up to date with all your new posts 🙂 Would love if you would visit mine x

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:27 pm

      Oh if you check my instagram you will see i’ve had my fair share of bad hair cuts hahaha! But now I have learned to just leave it be me tinks 🙂 x

  15. [THE BEAUTY DIARIES] 11th March 2012 / 7:04 pm

    I was actually going to ask if your hair was real in the hope you’d tell me it was paid for, but I am now seriously jealous because my hair will never naturally grow to that length or be that thick! Until a few weeks ago I’d had a weave for almost a year and was loving my 22inch locks but it was getting a bit much one night so I made my mum take them out and am now having ‘a break’ but I know they will be back in by Summer if not before!

    Oh and what lipstick is that it’s amaze!


    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:28 pm

      I will admit its a tad excessive the amount of hair I have, a person doesn’t need half of what I have let alone the whole lot, you’ve got to think about summer time, its literally like wearing a hat and scarf….meaning I pleasantly suffer my fair share of sweat-tashes ahhaa x

  16. Zoe Newlove 11th March 2012 / 7:19 pm

    Lyds what lipstick are you wearing? Love ze hair :o) x

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:29 pm

      Hey hun! It’s MAC Impassioned, I try to put the lipstick I wear at the bottom of my posts if I think its complementing the outfit 🙂 x

  17. Temporary:Secretary 12th March 2012 / 12:06 am

    Hope you feel better soon and you’ll be back to your happy self in no time. xxx

    • Lydia Elise Millen 12th March 2012 / 10:30 pm

      Oh I do love a TempSec comment 🙂 thanks beautiful! as they say everything will be alright in the end 🙂 x
