As classes were cancelled on Monday because of Veterans Day here in the USA, my friend Katie and I decided to go and see Skyfall; I had been getting frustrated by the fact it had already been out a week or so in England, and it only opened a few days ago here. Thank you to all my friends and family, in spite of threatening to, for not ruining it by telling me what happens! We were lucky enough to see it in the historic Fox theatre in Westwood (they have a lot of film premiers and red carpets there), but the real highlight of it all for me was the Britishness of it all. I'm not going to ruin anything, but I feel sorry for the people who saw it in London, and had to ride the District Line between Embankment and Temple on the way home after seeing the film!
Black Dress: c/o Fairground, Grey Tee: BDG, Ankle Boots: J.Crew, Military Jacket: H&M, Sunglasses: Breo, Nail Polish: Essie 'Where's My Chauffeur'
This casual afternoon look is really a mixture of new and old. First, it is an opportunity to unveil my brand new J.Crew boots that I am totally in love with, an early Christmas present from my parents. The nail polish I'm wearing is also new, from Essie's brand new Holiday 2012 collection. It is called 'Where's My Chauffeur' and I am going to feature it on The Glossy Guide soon; it excites me because it is an exact Tiffany blue. The real oldie in this look is this cotton cargo jacket I picked up in the H&M sale two Summers ago for only £10.
This dress, which was sent to me by the guys at Fairground (which I have layered over a plain grey BDG tee), and it is perfect the the chilled, laid back vibes that have been creeping their way into my wardrobe since I moved out here. Having a tan, especially on my legs must be changing me, as I usually would not wear something this short in England (it might also be a temperature thing, it is November after all!)
The guys at Fairground have been kind enough to offer one of my readers the chance to choose anything they want from their lookbook! This giveaway is open worldwide, and I will announce the winner on my Twitter page on December 1st. I've decided to try and start using Rafflecopter to host giveaways, so check the box on how to enter! Leaving a comment on this post letting me know what you would choose if you won is mandatory, as is following Life Lasting PR (the guys who rep Fairground) on Facebook, but there are also a couple more things you can do to get a few extra entries!
Good luck everyone, and I just wanted to leave you with a little outtake from this outfit shoot, hopefully sharing a little bit of the beautiful Californian sunshine I am so lucky to be able to enjoy here, with all of you!a Rafflecopter giveaway
For those of you who have already seen it, what did you think of Skyfall? I think my favourite part were the words 'Bond will be back' at the end of the film, it means we get another film to enjoy!
