This look was meant to be quite 80s, as I wore it on a night out to an 80s bar, but with a bit of a crazy, current twist. I loved how all the mannequins in the window of the Oxford circus store were dressed yesterday when I bought this; with funky statement tights, crazy sky scrapers in jewel tones or animal print, and wacky, oversized printed jackets thrown over a tight black bondage dress. Also, I am so in love with this beautiful Topshop shell clutch (even though the chain BROKE before we even got to the club) I have always been really fascinated with structured bags that are in the shape of objects, like glitter-covered box bags or or shiny plastic ovals. To me, it's like having a special little magician's box or burnished mermaid's shell to hold all your bold MAC lipstick and other going out essentials.
