Birthday Suit

For my 19th birthday celebrations I’m channelling my inner Ziggy Stardust and taking major inspo from all-round legend David Bowie and his bang on Kansai Yamamoto bodysuit (worn for his Ziggy Stardust tour, 1972-1973).

I’ve interpreted it with this striped plunge jumpsuit from emerging brand Missy Empire and added orange accessories.

I don’t usually do colour, especially not on nights out (I’m more of a play-it-safe with black kinda gal) but on this occasion taking a risk really paid off. The orange makes a statement and compliments the black of the jumpsuit nicely and although my feet may still be recovering from the heels, I can’t help but still love these Public Desire lace-up sandals (£17 in the sale)! They matched the tie back feature of my jumpsuit and also my River Island clutch, which is such a fresh and original style with its two-tone orange panels… Happy birthday to me!

I’m excited to officially have joined the blonde club now too, after F I N A L L Y getting a new ‘do on my birthday – just in time for Reading Festival and the last stretch of summer. Thanks for all you guyz who made this one special.

Peace x
