Fashion: Street Art Meets Chocolate. London OOTD

Bankside Fashion
Hi ladies how are you? You may have seen my #MOTDs over on Instagram and wondered why my ice cream consumption has shot up dramatically. Earlier this month I was very lucky to win a limited edition Holly Fulton for Magnum ice cream necklace over on Instagram. The necklace 'unlocks' the pleasure store in Covent Garden and allows the wearer to enjoy unlimited ice cream until mid September (that's when the shop closes). Have you been to the shop yet? It's a very unique experience and the ice cream combinations are so good and very hard to resist. I will definitely need to go on a strict diet from September onwards. 

I love ice cream and sweets far too much and it is hard to resist the temptation. I try to balance out the increase of Magnums with long walks in London and only use the tube to take me back home in zone 3. I've known London for more than 15 years now and got a good map of the city, but it can still surprise me with the most magical places that you randomly stumble upon. So has a big street art captured my fascination along Bankside recently.

Alex and I strolled home and came across a bright colourful graffiti near the National Theatre. The fashion blogger in me had to take the opportunity and before Alex knew, he saw himself with my camera around his neck. He was so kind to take some pictures for today's outfit post and I hope you'll enjoy.

The bi-coloured dress combination is from C&A Germany and I got it for the bargain price of £6. The white top has a very casual and flattering fit whereas the skirt sits tightly. If the skirt was a bit longer, this dress would work well as an office dress but because it is a bit short, I'd rather leave it for leisure time. It needs barely any accessories and I'm only wearing the necklace and my Daniel Wellington watch.

The necklace is just gorgeous. It feels very light around my neck and I love the Magnum shaped form. The colours remind me of the Magnum Classic, a vanilla ice cream coated in milk chocolate. In fact the necklace is inspired by Magnum's shards of cracking chocolate and smooth vanilla ice cream. The pendant's curved shape is adorned with brown and gold perspex to represent the delicious treat. The crystal stud in the middle, a true Holly Fulton style element, stands for the icy exterior. If you look closely you can also recognise a little key hole to represent the necklace as a key for the Covent Garden store. My Zerah Aldo shoes complete my look and apply a sophisticated and fashionable touch to it. The studs also pick up the aztec pattern of the necklace.

Some of you have asked me for my make up. I've finally started to use my Death By Chocolate palette from Make Up Revolution (£7.99) and I'm loving the eye shadows. My current favs are One More Bar and Break Me Up which were used for this look.
