Rebel without a cause.. it's heavy Oxblood!

As we come to the end of 2012, take some time to reflect. It has been quite a year for me, from starting this blog a month and a half ago to my University graduation, not forgetting 'the end of the world', roller coaster much? Due to my curiosity and great love for experimenting with fashion, I have always wanted to try teaming up different clothing pieces of the same colour in one outfit! Well, today I did just that. Oxblood has been a huge trend this year and I feel its only right I bring this rather amazing yet dramatic year to a close in Oxblood. How can you fall victim to the winter blues whilst wearing such a gorgeous colour? 

I am a huge fan of skater dresses now mainly because they are flattering on many different body types, including mine. Because I'm so short, I am rather picky when it comes to the dresses I wear and tend to go for tight, short dresses or pencil dresses . However, I have a new found love for skater dresses and the colour of this dress is what caught my eye. Completely covered in Internacionale merchandise, I think I pulled off this look quite well. I definitely recommend having at least one skater dress in your wardrobe, they are a great statement piece. Those wedges are the most comfortable shoes in my shoe closet; they are sort of my 'go to' heels when I know I 'm going to have a long day.

I accessorised this outfit with a long necklace and a print coloured scarf; keeping it playful. Oh by the way, I have my new Revlon Lipstick on(light brown colour), should be doing a review on it soon.

How are you ending 2012 and what are your thoughts on my look?
