Outfit of the day

White lace dress-Topshop, Bag-Vivienne Westwood, Navy velvet boots-Topshop.

This is what I wore last night to go shopping with a friend, all I bought was a cup though (haha!). Again, I am wearing that Topshop lace dress, paired with the navy velvet boots from Topshop which I mentioned in a previous post. The bag is from Vivienne Westwood, it's a really great bag as it comes with a long strap so it can be worn over the shoulder like a satchel, or as a handbag like in the photo, and is also quite spacious -Yay!

Dr Martens

I have always been a fan of Dr Martens, ever since I went through the whole 'grunge' phase at age 13, walking around thinking I was so 'misunderstood' in my baggy band hoody and jumping into mosh pits. It's strange how times have changed and how they are considered fashionable now in comparison to 8 years ago. Nevertheless they are amazing and despite having quite a high price tag, it is worth every penny because these boots last for YEARS! I am telling you, I'll be wearing these when I am 70 years old at this rate. I love them so much I have 4 pairs! Used to be 5 but I sold my dark purple metallic ones a few years back. I have a dark pink pair which I have worn to Japan and back (literally!), a limited edition Hello Kitty pair in white with blue soles and a red bow on the sides (Did I mention I have her tattooed to my wrist and that I am obsessed?), a standard black pair and my latest edition is a pair of baby pink ones which I picked up at a boot sale last week for £10. Very chuffed about that as I have been wanting some baby pink ones to replace my battered dark pink ones and now I have them and didn't have to shed out £60 yay! Happy days!

Bowler hat

I bought this bowler hat from Camden the other day. I have been searching high and low for a bowler hat that fits my large Blythe-like head, so when I stumbled across this one for only £10 I bought it without hesitation. It originally had a rather ugly corsage attached to it but the lovely girl in the shop replaced it with this cute polka dot ribbon which is more my style. H&M did a equally cute bowler hat for £7.99 with black ribbon but because I am slightly behind the times, they only had left over stock of size small and medium which was no good for me. Anyway, I am very happy with this purchase and will hopefully get some outfit shots of me wearing it at some point.

Outfit of the day

Cardigan-Camden, White lace dress-Topshop, Creepers-Office.

A somewhat awful quality photo taken on my iphone 4. My apologies for that, and also for my attempt of using an app to try and make the photo look slightly more decent by adding a vintage tone to it.
This is my bedroom, you may recognise the floorboards from other photos on my blog. My house is currently being rewired so we have had to take the carpet and furniture away so the electricians can get to the floorboards. The downside of this is that me and Mike are having to sleep in the spare room and our clothing and possessions are in boxes in various parts of the house. Rewiring the whole house is a long and tedious process. The only upside is that my bedroom makes great photo opportunities now that there is no furniture in it.
I love my lace Topshop dress, but the length is very annoying. I have to wear shorts with it as it is just too short. Bare in mind I am 5,5-5,6 so am not really tall or anything. The creepers I bought second hand online, they were in brand new condition (originally from Office) and only cost me around £8. I did have another pair of creepers which were black with pink leopard print but I stupidly sold them a few years ago...little did I know that they were going to be very in fashion years later. Let's just say I sold them for ridiculously cheap and regret it.
Oh and say hi to my cat!
