Outfit Of The Day - Turquoise Disco Pants
Good afternoon everyone! Today I have another outfit post for you all; I recently bought another pair of American Apparel's Disco Pants, in the new shade 'Deep Peacock'. I live in my black Disco Pants, and overwear them to death so I didn't think twice about dishing out the €82 for this pair (think cost per wear). I find Disco Pants go with everything and anything, they're super comfortable to wear and they wear extremely well! Turquoise is also my favourite colour, so I basically ran into American Apparel's store the other day, lusting for a pair. I must say, I am in L.O.V.E with them!
I wore them out for the first time yesterday and as they're quite a statement piece, I teamed them up with some simple and casual (for me) pieces. I wore a Sid & Nancy t-shirt I bought in Urban Outfitters (about 4 years ago), my Topshop leather jacket, an American Apparel grey hoodie, my Versace for H&M scarf (over-wearing this to death also, ugh) and my Doc Martens. I absolutely ADORE the colour gold clashing with turquoise, so I piled on some gold accessories; my Forever 21 chain necklace, a vintage peach stone ring, and two gold Topshop rings that I've purchased in the sales.
Makeup wise, I wore my usual pinup makeup but I drew a thicker-than-usual eyeliner line on my lids. I wore a Fearne Cotton for Boots pink lipstick, which is super moisturising and pretty - although it has a manky crayon scent off of it, which isn't too pleasant! I wore a lemon American Apparel nail polish also, which I picked up on sale for a wee €1.50 last week - bargain!
Yesterday was a brilliant day for me, as I mentioned on Twitter; I felt so happy and was in such a fantastic mood all day! I woke up to see that my favourite Youtuber BeautyCrush, mentioned me as her favourite Youtuber of the month in her April Favourites video. It was beyond unexpected, and it literally made my week! Sammi (BeautyCrush) is the reason I started my own Youtube channel, she's by far my favourite guru - to receive such amazing compliments off of her was just a dream come true! As a result of her shoutout, I received over 3,000+ subscribers in a day - it's mind-blowing! I'm still getting a herd of you guys in all over my Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook.. everything! It feels so great. If you're a new reader who's found me through BeautyCrush - welcome and I hope you enjoy my blog and other websites. I highly appreciate all of the support that my old and new followers have given me over the last few years. Without you guys, I wouldn't have the ambition and courage to take on my THUNDER + THREADS journey each day. I love you all dearly.
