I love how pretty all the lights look in Town Hall Square here, it definitely makes the fact it’s dark by around 4pm that little bit more bearable. This was one of the last days of the challenge & I’m pretty casual here as my aim was to get some early Christmas shopping done. It was a total fail though, I never came home with a single present, unless you include ones for myself…

I’ve professed my love for this Barneys Originals jacket enough times now, same for my fluffy snoods, but I am really annoyed with myself for not taking a better close-up shot of the leggings. I wear them quite often, so I was surprised I hadn’t featured them in an outfit post yet. I’ve always been a sucker for sheer paneling, but I just love the way they add a little bit of extra interest to an otherwise quite plain outfit.

I also thought I’d show you guys the finished StylistPick video of the whole 7 day challenge. There are a few outfits I haven’t put full outfit posts from up yet, I haven’t decided if I’m going to post them or if it’s a little overkill? Let me know if you’d like to see them or not!

I have to say I found this a lot easier than I expected, though I did get an awful lot of funny looks when I was doing the ones around the city, see if you can spot any of them! The hardest part of it was watching it back, is it just me or does anyone else find watching / hearing themselves to be particularly cringey? I mean, do I really sound like that?! I’m sure it’s not as bad as I think though, but please excuse my constant ‘Ummms’ & my worst habit, forgetting what I’m saying half way through talking! Keep an eye out for a little Nico cameo too!

    Those boots were a great choice, they’re so versatile… I’d like to see the other outfits!

    I always like hearing bloggers I read about every day in videos, but I definitely understand how awkward it is to watch yourself….That’s why I like pictures, no one can hear my silly voice haha!! You’re adorable though so don’t worry at all ^.^

      Aw, thankyou! Totally agree about photo vs video though, photos are much easier & no silly voices either! :)

    You look amazing and I am in love with those leggings and boots!

    Your video is fabulous! And you sound fine, haha. I think everyone’s just hyper-aware when they’re being filmed. Your leggings and snood for this outfit are gorgeous! The sheer panels are such a genius idea. (Coincidentally I have asked for the ASOS snood for Christmas!) xx

    You look gorgeous, and so so the lights ;)

    So funny how you hate your voice, you sound lovely!

    Loving all of your outfits but the best accessory is Nico :D

      Posted 02.12.2012 at 10:51 pm | Permalink

      Aw, thanks Becky! :)
      Yeah, I think everyone would agree with you on Nico being the best accessory! Hah! I couldn’t not include him! :D

    Oh you did a great job of the challenge, although it always helps when the item in question is black boots and it’s winter! Teehee. I know the feeling of hearing yourself back and thinking it sounds weird – my friend and I are thinking of doing a podcast so I can only imagine how that’s gonna be for me lol.

      Posted 02.12.2012 at 11:12 pm | Permalink

      Hehe! Yes it does! ;)
      Oh, you should definitely give it a go – it’s not as bad as you first imagine & I would love to see the results too if you decide to post it! :)

    Cool challenge, I have never taped myself, I did a project a few months ago for a short film but I have yet to hear and see the final results. I also have an accent when I speak in English which will add to the weirdness. It is so lovely to see videos and people’s mannerism and voice.Technology is crazy.
    Love the outfit as usual. I am one with all black outfits what can I say it comes naturally to us ;)

      Oh, I hope you end up posting it, I would love to see it! :)
      I agree, I don’t think you really get a full idea of who people are until you can see them talking & being themselves, photos don’t have that same sense of personality.

    Things I was thinking while watching the video:
    you accent is so hot :)
    Nico is so so cute
    I love that faux fur snood, time to dig out mine as well!

    I hate hearing my voice on the video as well, but don’t you worry, I think it’s just in our heads!

      Posted 02.12.2012 at 11:01 pm | Permalink

      Haha! Thanks Karina! I think it is definitely in our heads, it’s just so weird to see yourself & how you look/sound to others!
      And yes, definitely dig your snood out! Best accessory for this weather, I’ve been practically living in mine! :)

    It’s so weird when I see your photos in places around town, surprised I haven’t seen you as I’m there everyday haha! You always look so lovely and so bloody effortless! xxx

      Posted 02.12.2012 at 11:06 pm | Permalink

      I know I’m surprised I haven’t seen you either! We should try & arrange coffee one day, seems weird that we live so close & have never met! :)

    Love the fluffy snood! Very cosy looking :) perhaps the leggings will have to make another appearance so we can have a closer look at ’em!

      Posted 04.12.2012 at 9:23 pm | Permalink

      Thankyou! I definitely didn’t feel confident at all, but it’s nice to hear that everyone else seems to have enjoyed it! :)

    Loved the video! We always think we sound/look cringe on camera but trust me you definitely don’t, you’re a natural! Love all of the outfits, I think my fave was the one with the dress you made because I think it’s just so amaze. And I loved the little Nico cameo too of course! xxx

  16. Posted 03.12.2012 at 12:59 pm | Permalink

    GOD I love British accents haha. I love that you have an ease about you while your talking to the camera. It’s like you are just chatting with a friend. I get extremely nervous when I have to talk esp in front of a camera.

    ALSO Love your fur collar.
