Outfit of the day / orange and abstract

Woooh, I'm spicing it up a little.
today I add a splash more vibrancy with pattern and colour. 

To be honest I usually find this cardigan to be quite muted in tone, not nearly as bright an orange as one girlwithsomeclothes might like. however it does tend to compliment my skin tone, and many other fashion items that something much brighter might over shadow or destroy.

I found this skirt ages ago at one of Farmers epic red dot sales. I don't know why I haven't worn it before now. Possibly because of the front split, and the decision time it took to decide what to wear under it, and what top to wear with it.

The orange of the cardi compliments the skirt beautifully, without being overly bright and making the outfit off putting. 

But then again I guess that's just my taste... Some may be well put off. 

what about you? 
loathe or love?

Nails of the day - stripes away!

Super Thanks to Jessie from Nailed It NZ for the inspiration.
Not too boring, but super quick and easy.
Great nails for an easy weekend design. This is a great tutorial from Nailed It NZ.

Doesn't take too much precision, and the more random looking the stripes the better.

What do you think?
I might try and spice it up with some other colour combos some time. 

agirlwithsomeclothes is a slacker! I cannot remember the nail polish I used.

(I can have a hunt if you so desire- let me know in comments)

Nails of the day - check(ers) them out

apologies for the great pun 

I did this funky checker design free-hand. Ok I used a Sally Hansen Nail art pen.
But I'm still pretty proud of the almost neat-ness of them.

I'm quite excited to try these again, and use the nail art pens for more designs 

What do you think?

Base Colour: Sally Hansen Get Juiced
Black and White: Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in Black and White
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Mega Shine (I think) its the shiny silver bottle with the blue lid.

Nails of the day / green stripes???

These were a little design I thought I would try after seeing the Nailasaurus's Waterfall Nail Art Tutorial.

Here is my attempt with a green hue. 

I also added some glequins because it just didn't look quite right all on it's own.

What do you think?
think you might give it a go?

Green: Revlon Wind Fall
Blue Stripes: China Glaze Fade into Hue
eeeep I can't remember what I used for the darker colour!

Outfit of the day / Orange is the new black

So you may be able to guess from the title I have been watching a lot of the new(ish) netflix drama
Orange Is the New Black (2013) Poster

I wouldn't say I love this show, but it is enjoyable and something I look forward to sitting down and watching.

It's about a 30-something lady, Piper, who is newly engaged and sentenced to 15 months in prison. Pretty much tells the story of her time in prison, with some intriguing flash backs to her time before prison. Once you get past the initial shock of so many boobies all at once it's a pretty enjoyable watch. Oh, and it also stars that due from American Pie (you know the main one) - Jason Biggs, and that chick of "That 70s Show" - Laura Prepon according to IMDb.

It is, therefore, only fitting that my outfit today should be orange in support of Orange being the New Black.

Cardi: Glassons
Top: K-Mart and singlet from Glassons
Skirt: Max
Leggings: Farmers (they're special tummy sucker-in-ers)
Shoes: K-Mart
Bag: Sydney (Paddy's Market)

Nails of the day / purple gradient with studs

this was a little bit of fun...
I've been meaning to do a gradient tutorial, but until then here is another design for ya'll.
