This weekend saw a rare spot of sunshine hit Manchester, making it the perfect time to take a walk. I wore a casual outfit, incorporating a variety of black textures.

 A few years ago, I would not have worn, sequins, faux fur or any kind of animal print but seeing as I continue to wear a lot of black, I have been trying to branch out in materials and textures to keep my wardrobe varied and interesting.

The bag was a Christmas present but I’ve used it a few times and am finding having a small backpack quite useful, as long as I wear remember to wear something else with pockets to keep my phone in.

On Friday we watched some shows, walked around somerset house and attended the Dash magazine party.

For the first time I decided to brave the February fashion week weather sans coat and with a clutch bag. I’ve always been an oversized bag person, mainly because of the sense of self-sufficiency carrying everything I could possibly need gives me, but this time I thought I did pretty well without.

It was a busy day and I didn’t manage to get many outfit shots but hopefully I can track down some of the numerous bloggers that photographed me.

Shows to be covered separately.

Ruby in the onyx

I’ve been working on a latex range for a different brand (details to be revealed soon), which alongside my regular schedule didn’t leave much time for sleep.

Near the cafe, I noticed this interesting old buildingthat looks like a chapel but actually operates as a library and decided it made an ideal background for my latest outfit post.

The starting point for this outfit was the blouse. I bought it off ebay last week after after a two-month-long search for one to match these shoes. The shade is almost exactly the same and I’m also really pleased my feather necklace shows up so well against it, as I never manage to get a picture that does it justice.

I decided to pair it with my sequin Joni jeans by Moto. These are a very fitted style and I find that they work really well with my proportions, being tight in the right places and flattering. I don’t wear jeans very often and find that high waisted styles are sometimes large on the waist. These also have a sequin front, which is very good quality, the sequins overlap each other to give a high shine and sturdy surface.
