Thanksgiving OOTD

Despite being English and not really knowing what Thanksgiving is about, I have definitely noticed it becoming more of a thing here in the UK over the last few years (especially the whole “Black Friday” thing, which is suddenly a BFD apparently). Anyway, last year my friends decided to have a big Thanksgiving dinner (which, being only a couple of weeks before our annual ‘friends’ Christmas dinner, meant that nobody wanted turkey again so soon – what do Americans do? Do you have the huge meal with all the trimmings both times?). Being the Queen of Procrastination that I am (no need to use the full title, Your Most Serene Highness will suffice), I never got around to sharing what I wore to it last year and so here it is! (Better late than never, right?)

I obviously decided to go for an American theme (again)

I had originally wanted to wear my Primark dungarees:

But then decided that a.) I looked stupid, b.) I’d be cold and c.) I really did look stupid, so instead I went for:

Denim shirt: Primark

Jeans: Asos

Backpack: Asos

Plaid shirt: River Island

Shoes: New Look (with my Charlotte Olympia inspired Archie DIY brooches)

Baseball cap: merchandise from an Eminem gig

Phone case: Skinnydip London

Earrings: Lazy Oaf

My rings and bracelets are mostly cheap and old, from various markets etc. (except for the hearty one, which is Tiffany’s) and I just combined everything I had that was red, white, blue or starry/stripey. Never let it be said that I didn’t commit to a theme!

I appreciate that sandals look better without socks but hey, it’s November!

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone’s having a good week!

Dolly football

Last Saturday I went and saw Dolly Parton at The O2 with my sister and I officially have a new icon/muse/role model/ lady crush (girl crush doesn’t seem quite right!)/mentor! She was phenomenal, just 100% herself – cheesy, corny, tacky, preachy, chirpy, over-the-top and super-sweet. Her voice blew me away, it is so true and effortless it just pours out of her (I don’t believe the Glasto miming rumours at all). She played about 12 instruments, including the harmonica, fiddle, saxophone (after which she told us that she usually enjoys a cigarette after sax – haw haw), organ, guitar and several others I didn’t recognise at all. I have honestly never seen anyone so not concerned with being cool. She never tries to stay relevant, she never changes to fit the current fashion, she can laugh at herself, she is so completely fake yet totally honest and genuine about it. In short, I love her!

I obviously couldn’t resist the urge to theme my outfit around her awesomeness, so I foofed up my hair and wore:

Sequin dress: Oasis

Denim jacket: Gap, from when I was about 10!

Cowboy boots: My sister’s, from New Mexico

Earrings: Peacocks

Turquoise bracelet: Suite Blanco in Lisbon

D necklace: gift from my Dad, years ago

Dog2 Dress

Dolly tees

 

So Saturday night was awesome and I was fully prepared for Sunday night to follow suit. I wore my Greece shirt, bought in 2004 (when we, ahem, WON the European championships!), and never seen since. Amazingly I actually found this is the first box I looked in, which NEVER happens and was pretty much the most exciting thing ever. Despite thinking that people who wear football shirts out in public at non-football related events should be locked up, I wore this out to brunch in the morning too, in case it brought us luck. I paired it with my Mum’s vintage skirt, my Primark leopard print shoes, my Aldo orange bag and pink lipstick to ensure that I still looked mildly feminine.

Unfortunately, despite ALL THIS EFFORT, we lost on penalties. What little interest I had in the World Cup has now left the building.

*sigh*

Have a great evening!

FuseODG+Accessories

 

Last night I went and saw the delectable Fuse ODG at The Garage in Highbury. It was awesome, and I have been listening to Million Pound Girl on repeat ever since. (Admittedly this is not a new thing… (ask my long-suffering flatmates). I am so in love with this tune, not least because of the surprisingly feminist lyrics. 😀 )

This is what I wore:

FuseOOTD

Leaopard print jacket: Marks & Spencer

Black top: Urban Outfitters

Denim shorts: Asos

Glitter flats: Office

Love necklace: River Island

Orange bag: Aldo

Fusestage

Fusedancers

Fuseposeyaccessories

This was me being a tipsy Posey Poserson, trying to get all my accessories to show!

Fusebelt

Excuse the butt shot, this is to show my Paul Frank “call me” belt, bought to replace one I had saying “perfect” because a.) an uncle of mine once thought it said “erect” due to the positioning of my belt loops which kind of put me off! and b.) my sister stole it anyway.

Fuseorangebag

This kind of reminds me of a couple of years back when my friends thought it was hilarious to do this to all our photos:

My good side…

Hope you’re having a great week and remembering to be badder than bad!

These are my Outfits Of The Last Bank Holiday Weekend:

Image

Top: All the jewels! Most of them are things I’ve had for a while, and are from Accessorize or are vintage/gifts. The sunnies are from River Island

OOTDs:

Saturday BBQ: Sequin top from Next (old, although they always have a nice line in sequinned tees I find). New Asos “Ridley” jeans. I have trouble buying jeans (who doesn’t?) but these have a lot of stretch which I find more flattering on me and they come up nice and high (I hate surprise crack attacks. Again, who doesn’t?!) so are definitely my current favourites. (Although I ordered them in black too (same size) and they were tiny!) Booties from Office.

Sunday lunch with the fam: H&M cardi, pinky/maroon M&S trousers (These confuse me so much as I bought them in blue at the same time and the blue ones are super-comfy while these ones are trying to kill me! Why does this keep happening to me?!), Primark leopard print shoes.

Sunday night pub quiz: New white tee from Forever 21, Asos “Ridley” jeans again, neon green Converse (I used to wear Converse trainers all the time, I miss them!)

Cinco de Mayo margarita night with friends: Old GAP black shirt, Asos denim shorts, M&S tights, Office “Cecilia” flats

Bottom: Bags and shoes! The raffia bowling bag was a gift that my 3 year old niece picked out for me in the Philippines! (She has excellent taste! Must get it from her aunt…. 😛 ) And the blue bag was bought at a market stall in Florence.

Pink earrings: H&M

Pink & green earrings: Asos, Daisy necklace: Brooklyn Flea Market

Huuugely heavy diamanté and perspex earrings: Accessorize

Gold, colourful earrings: Accessorize I think, necklaces and rings are all vintage/gifts. The gold and coral necklace is one of my favourites. My Dad gave it to me as a gift for passing my GSCEs (a million years ago!) and I think it looks like something a mermaid would wear 🙂

So, on the 3 day long bank holiday weekend I wore:

7 bracelets

5 rings

4 pairs of shoes

4 pairs of earrings

3 necklaces

2 bags

& 1 pair of sunnies

 

My partridge was in the shop.

😛

Have a good week everyone!

Love,
