Dress – Yuki Tokyo*
Lipstick – Revlon Love that Red

So here we have it, my first outfit photos from the new abode. I seem to be very small and a little startled, having not quite mastered the whole logistics of my new photo area setup. My new camera is pretty amazing but I have so much swotting up to do. I am pretty sure I am nowhere near using it to its full potential. However, the best part of it surely has to be the ten consecutive photos it can take all in one go…bam bam bam! This is a whole new world to me which may explain the slightly ‘rabbit caught in headlights’ look in the second photo!

This dress was a recent sample sent to me from Yuki Tokyo and I was instantly enamoured with the fierce angular shoulders. The cut and material of the dress is really flattering, and the cinched waist with the contrasting bow is a really sweet addition. This dress is not actually available yet but will be coming soon to their SS12 collection so keep your eyes peeled!

Since my recent move I am totally embracing the fact that I can now walk to work. It is the best feeling ever, inducing a fresh glow and heightened heartbeat as I power walk the two miles or so into the office. The soundtrack of the week is the Red Hot Chili Peppers, hence the blog title. Such great motivation for the morning!
