I don't know what you take me as...

Shirt: vintage / Shorts: Wrangler vintage / Socks: Topshop / Shoes: New Look (old) /

Bag: Topshop / Rings: gift / Necklace: charity shop

I love socks with heels these days and Topshop have these socks in at least 10 different colours (including black for a safer choice.) With such a light coloured outfit a great idea is to add lipstick *insert my love for Rimmel* their lipsticks are amazing. Know when you have that lipstick that stays even till the morning? And you have to scrub to get it off? This one takes less scrubbing.

Summer is over, its official. After going out for a work night out in this outfit, im in bed with the cold the next morning. As many vitamin tablets, Activia yogurts and apples you consume you can never beat the sniffles. So im swapping my bottle of wine for my duvet, Band of Brothers box set and floral kleenex tissues next weekend.

Hope your weekend will be more exciting than mine.

Hello, good morning, how ya do?...

Top: charity shop / Shorts: vintage Wrangler / Shoes: New Look /

Bag: River Island / Scarf: charity shop / Necklaces: Miss Selfridge

Need to stop wearing these shorts so much. Thats all I really have to say about this outfit. Bar one little tip, to change or hide a logo on a bag you dont want anyone to see- add a little silk scarf. You get so many colours and patterns and as cheap as £1-2 in a charity shop. Ready, set, go!

I put a spell on you...

Jacket: vintage Karen Millen / Top: River Island / Jeans: River Island /

Bag: charity shop / Shoes: Gift / Watch: vintage / Bracelet: gift

Aberdeen is, to me, Scotlands answer to the North Pole, my mum is my answer to Gok Wan meets Anna Wintour, and this coat is result of both put together. My mum found this for me in a charity shop a few towns over from her, and she is one for big labels, bargains and trends. I swear sometimes she knows more about Fashion than I do, and i'm studying it. 

So this was a surprise she brought up for me a few weeks back and its comfort in a Dementor like coat. I just wish Ron Weasley would be in my life when im wearing it.

Wise words to the wise: always check washing labels on clothing items before you buy them!

I usually remember to but forgot with this one, which then happened to be 'hand wash only' juuuust after I spill wine down it, never ran home to quickly to soak a top in water before. Isn't the beading just gorgeous though?

Merry Wednesday :)

It’s just me, myself and I...

Top: Vintage / Skirt: vintage /

Shoes: Primark / Bag: gift (Zara)

These heels remind me of Carrie and Sex and the City.. I really wanna pair them with boyfriend jeans and a big jumper and then a bell skirt, nip in waist dress.. vintage Dior if I was feeling rich... but im not and i eat beans on toast for my dinner every night. So back to reality- i wear it with vintage, vintage and a bit of Primark.

I got this bag from two of my best friends for my birthday and I seriously LOVE it! Its easy to tuck the handles in and make it a clutch (as shown) or just as a shoulder bag. Although quite small, it does allow you not to bulk up your bag with unnecessary junk like the 3 week old bus ticket, the weeks old half bar of galaxy and your keys in which have a million and one keyrings on (mine has a mini/4 inch purple bear thing called Moses.)
