What Helen Wore: GSA Degree Show

Tshirt dress | Hayley Scanlan
Sunglasses | Giant Vintage
Boots | Charity shop
Eye ring | Cheap Frills
Hand rings | Made by me

I made a quick visit to Glasgow at the weekend to see the Glasgow School of Art degree show. I thought such a cultural afternoon deserved a fancy outfit so I broke out my new Hayley Scanlan tshirt dress. I love it so much and already have a tonne of different ideas of how I want to style it. For this outfit I went for plain and simple monochrome to really show it off. It was so perfect for the nice weather as the fabric is super light and airy. The boots, on the other hand, weren't the best choice for the heat but at least they were comfy to walk in.

After a look round the exhibition Ross and I headed out to the Riverside Museum to snap some pictures. The building is pretty impressive, with it's shaped roof and reflective surfaces, and it worked very well as a back drop for these amazing sunglasses. I was lucky enough to win them in the Dear Thirty birthday giveaway and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear them ever since. I finished off the whole look with some awesomely creepy rings. I am obsessed with eyes so I love this Cheap Frills one and the hands were made as part of a jewellery class I attended. One of the jewellers at the degree show had some similar (but infinitely better) pieces on display, which I absolutely loved. I really wish I had a bottomless pit of money for attending these shows!

Been to any interesting exhibitions or shows recentley? Do share...

Photo kudos to Ross Bull, always on hand to capture my silly faces.
