Heya guys, Happy Halloween ! better late than never! So here is a quick blog post about what I have been doing/wearing ect ect.. I have just got back from babysitting so am v v tiered so I'm sorry in advance if none of this makes sense aha Anyhow this is an outfit post I wore to Cambridge on tuesday. I got the monochrome dress when i was shopping in London a while ago and just thought it was an absolute bargain at £12.99 like whut?? They only had it in an XS though and although it fits it is rather tight around the neck which can get rather annoying. The top I made myself ages ago which i was planning to make a matching skirt with (I have the material and already have places a waistband in it) I just need to find some time to get round to it. Now for the pumpkin! When I first cut out the pieces I thought it wasn't going to look a thing like Walter White/Heisenberg (From the series Breaking Bad if you don't know what I'm on about) but then I put a tea light inside and BAM wolaaa it looks great! I was so so pleased with it deffo upped my game for next year! I was In London on Halloween looking at the 'Facing the modern: The portrait in Vienna' exaction at the Royal Academy and looking round the university Camberwell so felt pretty worn out by the end of the day so just went to sleep! boring boring aha I did however buy some lovaaay stuff from the shop Monki in London. I have been dying to visit it for a while now and always buy stuff from them online so thought it would be great to actually have the chance to try things on in store. As i imagined i would i ended up spending loads of money.. but how can you blame me when everything so god damn amazing and reasonably priced?? I might end up doing my first ever haul video scary stuff on youtube soon, would anyone be interested in watching it? Thanks !! 


What kind of Pumpkins did you guys make ?

River Island Wish List

I think I am beyond in love with this River Island mongolian multi-colourd bag, shame its £150  :( think it's going to be a 'wait till someone ebays it' or a 'wait till it goes on sale' kinda buy. I also adore this new season river island bomber jacket which I think would look lush with black skinnys tartan socks and my black loafers, so I might just have to make an investment! I tried on those black Chelsea boots in store in Leeds and they just looked really clumpy and had didnt really look like chelsea boots which was pretty sad so I am taking them off the list!
I have been obsessing over this art installation created by Richard Mosse and just cant get over the beauty of it so i'll leave a link bellow so you can check it out! Thanks xxx

#OOTD








Jumper - Topshop
Jumpsuit - River Island 
Socks -Topshop
Loafers - River Island 
Belt - River Island 


Just a quick ootd here as I have been so so busy with work and things.. Seems a week off just isnt enough! ohh well! I have been meaning to do an outfit post with this beautiful jumpsuit on for a while now so duh daaaa! I got it in the River Island sale last season (I think) for only £15 or something which I thought was pretty decent for a jumpsuit! The monochrome flower design stands out quite alot so it's defiantly a statement piece for any wardrobe. I had to team it with a pink fluffy jumper since its oh so cold but I think it works really well. I also was able to team my new loafers into yet another outfit (obsession has clearly already started) this time with a cute pair of frilly topshop socks. So much monochrome!! I am now off to do some more work oh the joys of being in education ! bye for now xxx

#OOTD










Top - Topshop Vintage 
Belt - Charity Shop
Trousers - Topshop 
Coat - Topshop 
Shoes - River Island 
Gun Necklace - Clothes Show Live 
Chain - Charity Shop 
Grumpy Expression - Priceless 


Heya guys, now I know I promised more outfit posts so here we are! This is the lovely warm coat I brought recently from Topshop which I love love love! Its a perfect coat for winter as its very warm, believe me i've been testing it out over these freezing few days. It also has an adjustable fur collar so if you feel you'd prefer an all black coat look (is that a thing?) then you can easily remove it. The pockets on the coat are also mahosive as I managed to fit all my pencils in one and a rather large purse Mary Poppins? which was very handy. The cigarette trousers are something I have been trying to get hold of for a while ever since seeing them on someones lookbook that I used for my textiles coursework. Blue Blue Electric Blue..  I managed to find quite a few pairs on Ebay occasionally but didnt really fancy paying face value being the bargain hunter I am so I decided to wait fo
r a while and BAM here they are at £11 and like a fiver p&p :D Now to the shoes.. I have been dying for some loafers for a while now as I have this image of myself in some black loafers and black skinnys with tartan socks which I cant really explain but yeah bring on the blog post! aha I found these beauties in the River Island sale for £20 instead of £45 so I brought them horaay I know own a pair of loafers!
