INSTA UPDATE DEC/JAN

BLEACH LONDON ROSE/ WASHED UP MERMAID
Unfortunately these cute little scrunchie packs have now gone out of stock (the scrunchies were kinda the main reason why I bought them) but I am really excited to try the colours out too, I've heard mixed reviews about Bleach London so we shall see how it goes!

ROCKING HORSE SHOES - EBAY
CHILLI PRINT SOCKS - TOPSHOP (out of stock) similar @ NEWLOOK
I bought these cute little rocking horse shoes a few years ago off ebay, unfortunately they're a bit too small for me and also the buckle snapped off, I got them from a wholesaler so I don't think they were particularly good quality. Originally designed by Vivienne Westwood, rocking horse shoes are super popular in various forms of Lolita fashion, mine definitely look fake when you see real RHS, maybe one day I'll own a real pair!!


SPARKLY VELVET TIEDYE DRESS - AMERICAN APPAREL
I absolutely adore this dress, I really wanted to buy it and now its reduced to $26, I'm soo tempted!!! I'm rarely the sort of person that wears dresses, usually I prefer separates, but this is too nice to miss out on, it combines my two favourite things, sparkly things and velvet!



MOM JEANS: TOPSHOP
POM POM TRIM: EBAY
I actually bought these jeans in a charity shop, and the pom poms were from a market that I stumbled upon a few minutes later (it was a magical moment of pom pom-jean DIYing revelations) but I found pretty much the same pair of jeans from Topshop and also I found lots of Pom Poms on Ebay, I would recommend buying three meters to cover both legs and then you'll have a little bit extra just incase of any mistakes! I stiched mine on by hand, its such a nice relaxing thing to do whilst watching the tv! I think these jeans would look adorable with all pink pom poms or lilac ahh!!


PASTEL FAUX FUR COAT: RIVER ISLAND out of stock similar @ BOOHOO
VINTAGE ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR BAND TSHIRT: URBAN OUTFITTERS URBAN RENEWAL VINTAGE
SKIRT: WEARECOW VINTAGE LACOSTE (PLEATED SKIRT/ SKATER SKIRT)
WHITE THIGH HIGH BOOTS: EBAY
On the 5th of January it was Marilyn Mansons birthday and I thought I'd post a celebratory Happy Birthday photo!


MOLLY SET: *AGENT PROVOATEUR
I got this absolutely amazing set from Agent Provocateur a while back, I went for the Molly set as I thought it was the quirkiest and most unusual, green isn't a colour one would usually associate with Lingerie, however, I think it works amazingly well in this set, its so elegant! Green is also my favourite colour, so I kind of had to have it! Ive actually just visited the AP website and noticed they're having a 75% off sale which is kinda crazy, I am so very tempted to get the Pheonix Bra because its sooo pretty and rainbow-y! And just think, its coming up to Valentines day, such a perfect time to have a Lingerie sale! I would also totally agree with anyone who popped these fluffy heels into their basket to wear every day of their life ever!

CROP TOP: OH MY LOVE
JEANS: CHARITY SHOP similar @ TOPSHOP
This crop top from Oh My Love is super cute, its actually normally a little less fitted than in this photo, I actually clipped it at the back to make it super fitted, I'm tempted to do it permanently on the sewing machine as I think it looks super good. I've tried to find these temporary tattoos online but I can't find them anywhere! They were originally from the Foot Asylum press team, I shall have to ask them where they found them!

WE LOVE IN VAIN NARCISSISTIC AND SO SHALLOW



BARF BARBIE PRINT HOODIE: *NYCT CLOTHING
BLACK TARTAN TROUSERS: *HELLO MARGARET out of stock similar @ BOOHOO/ TOPSHOP
PLATFORM BOOTS: EBAY out of stock similar @ DR MARTENS
EARMUFFS: SOUTH BEACH SWIM

The other day I went out to shoot this outfit post in the lovely sunny January weather, and of course, as soon as I was stood there, pulling my camera out of my bag, the sun decided to disappear completely behind the worlds most gigantic blanket of clouds! I was most displeased as I loved the location, the concrete filled bins are so cool, its always fun to have something to sit on, I was like, omg I should stand up, but everyone was scared I would fall through?? Missed photo opportunity!!! Oh well, I have always loved these trousers handmade by the wonderful girls at Hello Margaret, they're literally so cool and I always feel the need to say the word "Pantaloons" and prance around weirdly whilst wearing them. I also always seem to wear them with these platform boots, which I haven't worn much since Download as they kinda got covered in mud, but I de-mudifyed them and decided they must now become apart of my shoe wardrobe once more!

I popped together another wishlist, I love browsing for clothes/ shoes online sooo much, its quite the addiction, oopsie! As you can see, currently I am absolutely OBSESSING over yet more platform shoes, I am especially loving these insane velvet upper shoes with white platforms from Topshop which are only £35, which for Topshop I think is a completely insane deal for such cute shoes, I think I'm actually going to get them! I have also been lusting over the Velvet Platform Dr Martens for, well, since they came out and graced us with their presence basically. The other day I saw a wonderfully dressed monochrome-esque girl walking around Birmingham with them on and I was like right thats it, I've got to get them. So perhaps they will end up in my shoe wardrobe sometime soon!

I always find it so weird that despite my love of crazy out there clothes, shoes are the one thing I can't resist. Maybe I'm just like Carrie Bradshaw when it comes to shoes, apart from instead of Manolo's, its weird clumpy things that I can step on mean people with. Just kidding.. I don't do that...

DEBENHAMS PRESS DAY



DEBENHAMS

I have so many photos of press days from months ago when I lived in London, so these are probably a little old now, but I finally found them in a hidden away folder so thats why recently I've been popping up quite a few press day posts! I loved the setting for the Debenhams press day, its my aim to live somewhere that looks like this beautiful stately house one day! (haha I'm suure that will happen >.>) but its absolutely adorable and I was just stood there like ahh I don't want to leave!! Whilst there they were measuring bra sizes, so, seeing as I've never been measured before I decided to hop into the little changing room (as far as I'm aware, all stores provide free measuring, yay!). The lady who measured me was clearly an expert as within a few seconds and a measuring tape later she was like AH YES, YOU MY DEAR, ARE A VERY UNUSUAL SIZE and I was like, oh help! But not to fear, Debenhams stock soo many sizes! I'm not sure if its ok to put my bra size on my blog, but if anyones very tiny like me with averageish sized boobs, Debenhams is probably one of the best places to try! They stock sizes from 28J to 48J!! Which is kind of insane, but thankfully that means theres something for everyone!

TIME IS TICKING



GRID PRINT JACKET: LILY LULU FASHION only one size in stock, more @ MISSGUIDED
GINGHAM TOP: CHARITY SHOP similar @ MOTEL ROCKS/ MISSGUIDED
TROPICAL SHORTS: IN LOVE WITH FASHION out of stock, similar @ RIVER ISLAND/ MOTEL ROCKS
EMERALD JELLY SHOES: RIVER ISLAND out of stock, similar @ OFFICE/ SCHUH

The sun outside is very deceiving, it looks nice and warm, but once you get outside its freeezing! Clearly I should have put tights on (I'm crazy I know) they just didn't seem to go with the outfit. Also just before I took these photos I was wearing other shoes as they were comfier and I was feeling lazy, but as I put these jellies on, the strap completely snapped! So one of these is now completely broken beyond repair, thanks River Island :( fortunately they were the most painful jelly shoes I've ever worn as they are rock solid, like wearing a very non bendy piece of plastic on your foot, sadly they are also the cutest pair of jellies I've ever seen. Oh well, I will definitely be sticking to JuJu from now on, their jellies never go hard they're always soft and don't cut your feet open!!

My camera is doing that blurry thing again! Stop that camera! Its so weird how sometimes it works perfectly and other times it doesn't want to focus at all, maybe if I buy a new lens and sit it on the shelf so it can stare at my camera in a "ha har, you better work or I shall be replacing you!" type way it will work!
