why 'rose from the ashes'? well when my boyfriend was doing his post-process editing he added this lovely, smoky dulled-out effect onto all the photos that was reminiscent of some fantasy film setting. I didn't expect it to complement my outfit which was full of springtime pastels and florals, but the wintry feel of the background provided a surprisingly pretty contrast! So the 'ash' is for the background and the 'rose' is for my punny little way of mentioning the floral crown lol.

I love my new Dorothy Perkins glitter clutch with the scalloped flap edges! The shape and structure are just so perfect, and adds so much understated elegance to any outfit. And yes there is actually stuff inside the clutch, although it looks empty! I've fit in an iPhone and a coin purse stuffed with keys, coins and notes in there- I guess another perk of the clutch is that it retains its smooth, flat envelope shape even when it's got your going out essentials inside.

I was honestly in the biggest rush to put this outfit together- I've been so pooped from work that I didn't even have the energy to pull it together properly. I made the dire mistake of mixing silvers with gold (glitters on the clutch with the jewellery) and I didn't even have any bling around my unfashionably bare neck. Oh well, I felt like such a woodland princess with this gorgeous cream and pink floral crown on my head, that it didn't even really matter what I wore underneath :)
