A recent Spring clear out has me rediscovering lots of old pieces! I found my vintage leather and suede jacket - another piece from TRAID charity shop. I know the outfit is a bit black today but some things are beyond our control... I used to love organising outfits together and experimenting in different ways but I've noticed recently I'll throw together what ever happens to be at the front of my wardrobe - which I guess is an experiment in itself. So today is black and tomorrow are ponies.

Today I'm wearing:
Leather and suede jacket - TRAID
sheer dress - TOPSHOP
Necklaces - Dorothy Perkins
Shoes - NEXT

I always thought I loved a print having an array of leopards, tigers, snakes and zebras hung in my wardrobe but prints outside this collection are far a few between. It's probably a bit too late to make new year's resolutions but from now on I'm going to do print as much as possible :) I picked up this giant hound's tooth shirt from a charity shop, TRAID in the Westbourne Grove branch. Its my favourite chain of charity shops in London as there's always a good mix of vintage and new stuff and every 2-3 months they have a massive clear out and everything is £2!

Veil and Shine

 The second the sun comes out I'm putting on my floatiest see-through dress and parading down the street bare foot - You can take a girl out of Yorkshire but you can't take the Yorkshire out of me.......
But for now my wardrobe seems to be regressing. While I love a sparkle and some shine - it's a bit festive! I can't help it the weather is confusing my body and my general attire. I feel like a bird who flew south but still ended up in the Arctic.

I don't normally like to bring attention to my lips but the shiny materials I'm wearing just called for it.

Today I'm Wearing:
Bobble Hat - DIY Veil see here
Cream chiffon shirt - H&M
Sparkle purple knit - H&M
Sparkle Tube Skity - Topshop (but exactly the same one found in Primark)
Platform - Jeffrey Campbell

Always be a Unicorn

When I was at school there were two types of girls. The Horsey Girls and the Non-Horsey lot. I was the latter and proud of it. Frankly I just thought it was a little bit cringe to gallop around the playground grunting   and kicking my hind legs around. Now I'm older, I see the magic!! Unicorns! They're beautiful and horses are the nearest I'm ever going to get to unicorns. Ergo, I like horses...

I've facebooked and Instagrammed my new vest a few times already and the reaction hasn't been positive - I've even heard open sniggering about it when I'm walking down the street but I don't care because I LOVE MY ROMWE VEST. It's got studs, bleached denim, unicorns and pink feathers...what's not to love?!
