Black is the new Black

"Now it's getting dark and the sky looks sticky, more like black treacle than tar" - Arctic Monkeys 'Black treacle'...
 For any of you that attended Blogger Love Fashion Week last Monday then you would've been well aware of the all-black chic dress code. One which I welcomed happily, as I love wearing dark colours, so this was right up my street!
What wasn't up my street was my dying bank balance, which meant I wasn't able to buy a brand new outfit for the event - which being the shopaholic that I am was horridly tragic. Anyhoo I quickly got over it and just decided to work with what I already had and recycle an outfit! With my Fedora hat in toe I created a look that was a little bit of androgyny, a little bit chic and a little bit casual, just the way I like it! And when I say I was dressed in all black, I mean ALL black, right down to my underwear...But don't worry I won't show you any pictures of that! ;)
 Excuse my tired and red eyes, I'm a struggling insomniac! 
Not sure how these pictures were going to turn out as the sun was starting to set when we started taking them, and my camera does not do well in low light so I was worried about the outcome. But I don't think they look too bad! We took a few with the London skyline in the background, which was just beautiful. We then went down to the shore and took a few more there, and the sea as a backdrop was even more breathtaking. 
This picture is one of my favourites and I think Arj looks absolutely gorgeous!
My favourites are the silhouette shots! I just love the dark and mystical vibe to these photos, they're kind of sexy!

I would just like to say a special thanks to Arj for taking these lovely photos of me. She's the perfect photographer companion, as we both bring out the crazy in each other, and that always makes for a fun shoot!
Did you like this look? What did you wear to BLFW?
