White Birds Fly Across A Red Sky

Hi lovelies!

I recently caught up with a friend and we decided to head to Carnaby Street. We headed to a new American-style restaurant, Stax. The food was great, as was the service and I'd definitely recommend it. We then did a bit of shopping to round everything off. It was such a lovely evening.

I wanted to wear something nice, but also something that would look cool with boots due to the rain. I turned to my ever trusted Lady V London. This dress was actually going to be my Christmas Day dress last year, but I went for a different one in the end. Lady V are great for making dresses that can be dressed up or down, which is why I have so many! I paired the below dress with my standard ankle boots, a fab satchel I bought at a blogger sale, and my new Collectif cardigan.
Dress: Lady Vintage London^
Cardigan: Collectif
Satchel: Blogger Sale
Leggings: South (via Very)
Boots: Boohoo^
I love the bird theme of this outfit. The white birds against the red base really soften the look and I love the slight Asian feel of the dress. Swing dresses are also so comfortable and usually have a slight stretch, which is great when heading off to stuff your face! The cardigan is a new purchase from a recent Collectif sample sale. I adore the Swallows on either side and on my way to dinner I had a few people ask me where I got it from - a total winner!
Such a gorgeous outfit, and definitely one of my favourites this year. But then, having an outfit which is completely vintage inspired is likely to get my vote ;)

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
