B2 90sshortsfloral

 

Friday 90s music night in Camden: 90s-esque floral dress – Forever 21 (it’s nicer in the flesh, super-flattering). Worn with leggings and my Office boots (when will it be bare legs weather?!), my old tattoo style choker that I’m (clearly) obsessed with, a chilli pepper pendant that was a freebie at a jewellery shop in Siena and old earrings.

B2 90s

Saturday (was meant to be brunch but became linner): Zara tee, M&S shorts, almost old enough to vote by now Warehouse leather jacket, Primark backpack. The necklace was a Christmas present last year from my boyfriend. He got it at Sublime, a shop near my work that I’m kind of obsessed with.)

Sunday lunch with my family: Asos dress (I used to wear this all the time, I feel like it’s a bit young for me now but I like the shape so much that it stubbornly remains a staple!)

Bonus:

Monday night yoga outfit. (Yes, I do yoga. No, I can’t believe it either.)

YogaJam

Trainers: Nike. The Jam T-shirt was a present from my sister who bought it at a school fair she attended, from Andy Jordan himself (this is only exciting if you are an overly obsessive Made in Chelsea fan. Which I am) 😀

Happy Hump Day!

It’s Friday! And not a moment too soon.

I wear this when I’m feeling like I want a bit of edge but I still have to be appropriate for work. This outfit always prompts my bf to rage about how unfair it is that women can basically wear anything to work while men have to be boring. I’ve just realised that this makes it sound like he wants to wear tassels to work. I really hope this is not the case…

Anyhoo…..

-Tassel shirt: Warehouse. I love this shirt but I don’t recommend wearing it if you have a busy day ahead of you, as you will spend at least half the day detaching yourself from items that the tassels have tangled themselves up in. Phones, doors, bracelets, your pants, other people, other people’s pants… Seriously, this shirt has boundary issues.

-Treggings: M&S -I know, I basically wear these every day (except for when I wash them. Which does happen, I promise!)

-Studded mary-janes: Office

-Pearl and safety pin necklace: originally just a plain pearl necklace that my mother didn’t wear anymore. I stole the safety pin idea from here.

-Pink lips: Wet ‘n’ Wild, I am obsessed with this brand, when I was in NY  I bought so many of these lipsticks because they have better staying power than any other brand I’ve found and they are 99cents each!!!

Also:

-TGIF bracelet: BCBGeneration

-Asymmetric bow earrings that cause everyone to exclaim “oh no, your earrings have broken!” or make girl with a pearl earring references when they see me: vintage. I think they might actually have been 2 pairs of earrings at one point, but I think they go together quite nicely.

-Fake (I assume, think it was a gift) Chanel bracelet

-Star and horseshoe bracelet: Nomination

-Spiky bracelet: Forever 21

Have a great weekend!

(Once I actually arrived at dinner, I had to switch to my foot duvets as my friend has a no-shoe policy in her house. This may have somewhat killed the effect…)

Foot duvets that make my feet look like jacket potatoes: John Lewis

Last night was my annual Secret Santa dinner with my group of closest girlfriends. (This year we allowed boys too, dun dun duuun…) We all like to dress up and be festive at this-

Here is a sample of the Christmas jumpers featured:

– and so I figured that bespangling my butt was the way forward. 😀

A word on these trousers though. I love them. Truly. They are everything one could hope for in a pair of trousers. They are COVERED IN SEQUINS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! They are even comfy. Clearly, they are perfect.

Except.

Except. I want to know who modelled these trousers while they were being made/designed. Because they were obviously designed for women whose legs do not touch each other. (Or “aliens” as I like to call them.) Seriously, walking in these trousers is a nightmare. Every 3 steps I take, the sequins between my thighs get all tangled up with each other and tie my legs together. Needless to say this is not a good look. Neither is the fact that I consequently spend half the evening rummaging around between my legs trying to disentagle myself. (NB. This is difficult to do elegantly.) So I have only worn these trousers once before, which is a damn shame because if I had my way I would wear them everywhere! I dared to wear them last night only because I knew that I was getting a lift, that I was going to be sitting most of the evening and that I was amongst very close friends (karate chopping my thighs apart is now a popular new party game. Awesome.)

I think I’ll have to get patches (maybe leather?) added to the legs but I can’t think of a way of doing it that won’t spoil the effect. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!! 🙂

On the plus side, they do go multicoloured next to the Christmas tree:

Image(I’m easily entertained)

Anyway, we had an really really fun evening, and I am most definitely feeling festive!!!

Hope you’re all enjoying advent!

So, it happened again. What my dad affectionately refers to as my “accidental shopping” problem. It starts innocently enough. I go out, usually with the intention of simply getting from A to B, sometimes to buy a birthday present for someone or to help a friend find the perfect seduction underwear to take on a scientific research trip to Peru (don’t ask). I won’t shop, I think. You could call me naïve but the truth is that I’m clearly lying to myself and we all know it. And that is how I end up tonight, on my bed, grinning avariciously at my purchases, like a kid in a candy shop, a magpie in Swarovski, Cruella in Doggy Day Care.

Clearly I have a problem. And so I thought, what would be better? Should I a.) Become less obsessed with fashion? Or b.) Start a blog where I can ramble endlessly about clothes, jewels, bags, footstools (yes, I love them!), shoes and just about anything else that takes my fancy, thus further feeding my rampant lust for style and general fabulousness?

You’ll never guess what I went for… Read the rest of this entry »
