(Dress – Exact ON SALE, Blazer – Similar, Shoes – Similar, Necklace – Exact, Ring – Exact)
This dress is amazing isn’t it? The intricate detailing, the sequins, the design, the ombre, it’s just stunning in person and since I’m attracted to anything sparkly, much like a magpie, I was instantly drawn to this dress the moment I saw it in the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection! It’s by Needle & Thread and I think it’s perfect for the holiday seasons! It will look great for any Christmas or New Years Eve parties! I was absolutely freezing when we took these photos, but I wanted to share with you the outfit I plan on wearing for Christmas. I decided to dress it up with a black blazer from Zara and black heels from Topshop, to make it a bit more conservative and obviously give me a bit of warmth. I’m not overly fond of wearing such minimal dresses without some type of cover on top, so that’s why I decided to have such a strong blazer, to give everything some structure. For my accessories, I wore my Baccarat crystal necklace, my Butler & Wilson double finger eye ring and my ASOS pink crystal ring.
For those of you who are interested in the size of the dress, I took it in a size 10 as I didn’t want it to cling. I’m between an 8/10, so if you don’t want it really clingy, I recommend going with your normal size or your bigger size, depending on how you fit clothes! It’s also in the sale at ASOS, so make sure you snap it up if you love it! Speaking of sales though, I absolutely love this time of the month for shopping! So many shops have amazing sales before Christmas and after Christmas, but there are also wonderful deals and codes to be found too! If you keep a check on Voucher Box, they might have a code pop up for your favourite store! They often have clothing shops and restaurant deals! I have done a bit too much shopping myself actually, I’ve bought quite a few things and taken advantage of discount codes, so I don’t feel as bad about it, ha ha. I’ve got all of my Christmas shopping done though! Which is amazing for me! Anyway, what do you think of the dress? Comment and let me know!
The past couple of months have been really busy for me, so I thought I would share with you some of the things I have been up to! If you follow me on Instagram (@LornaRaindrops) then you will already know that I took three trips to London last month for press events, so I’m sharing those photos with you here, but I also did some shopping, went to the theatre, guest posted for a lot of people and more! So I hope you like some of my photos! Comment and let me know which you like!

I wore this outfit yesterday when I went to town with my boyfriend. I hadn’t seen him for two weeks so it was nice to spend so much time together this weekend! We ate at my favourite Italian restaurant and did a little bit of Christmas shopping! I will be posting Christmas Market and decoration photos soon too!
I’m wearing my Paige Verdugo Jeans in Amber Crown Jewels Print in these photos. They are so pretty! I won them for a great price as you know, but the print is gorgeous! I paired them with my Zara Black Coat with Faux Leather details that I got in the summer sale earlier this year and my KG by Kurt Geiger Winona Boots. This is the first time I’ve worn this coat and it’s actually really warm. I generally don’t like black coats as it’s a lot of black for me to wear, but I think brightening it up with these colours worked quite well. I added my Topshop Aubergine Cable Knit Pom Pom Scarf to give some burgundy tones to the outfit and my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Sycamore to go with the jeans. I prefer wearing jewel tone and bright colours when it’s a grey and rainy day! It helps brighten up my mood!
I just finished watching I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. Have you been following it? I thought Joey and Kian would have been in the final, but I loved David in it too! I thought Kian would win though, he seems like such a genuinely nice guy, although David does too, so I wouldn’t have minded who won. Also, I wanted to let you know that ASOS currently have 20% off of everything until tomorrow at 8am with the code WKEND20, so don’t miss out! It’s such an amazing discount! I did a little shopping spree and saved a lot of money on the items I want! Definitely take advantage of it! You can shop ASOS by clicking here. Anyway, what do you think of my outfit? I would love to you know your thoughts in the comments below!
As you know, Autumn is my favourite time of the year. Since I am addicted to bright colours and pretty things, I think Autumn is absolutely beautiful. I welcome the bright orange and yellow tones of the leaves with open arms and I love that crisp fresh air that comes with the season. I think Autumn just brightens everything up! It makes my outfit photos that little bit prettier, it makes me smile whenever I look at the trees in the park and I love the mounds of fallen leaves on the floor.
When I was younger, I used to go to the park and catch the leaves as they would fall, so I could have special untouched leaves. It’s always held a special place in my heart, so I thought that I would make this post with the lovely photos I have taken recently of the beautiful Autumn trees to say goodbye to it until next year! Winter is here now and it’s always so dull and grey, but at least I have the special tree in the garden which is always behind every other tree, so I still currently have leaves in the golden hues upon it! I know they will drop soon, but we have the festive season approaching really quickly! It’s been fun Autumn!
