Cockles, fish and chips and Mr Whippy 99 flake ice cream! A windy bank holiday Monday by the seaside, naturally!
I am wearing my Topshop thigh split maxi skirt (a la Jill Sander) probably not the best thing to wear in gale force winds.. with cream lace top (might as well be naked) and Topshop MOTO cropped denim jacket to keep three quarters of my arms warm! ah! Blue pumps with gold studs are River Island.
I can’t get enough of these rose print palazzo pants from Republic! Very popular in the 70’s, often gets mistaken for a maxi skirt palazzo pants are infact (very) wide legged trousers. There are smart ones for work, playful ones for daytime, dressy and causal ones… gives you a great new silhouette and perfect for hiding my big knees! (and that is why I look SO HAPPY here)
A rather exciting day today, going to the film theatre for the very first time to see ‘Sarah’s Key’.. being cultural on a Saturday.. just how I like it 🙂 ..and of course some light retail therapy!
Soft camel harem trousers from Dotty P’s with a pastel mint lace top from Topshop bought last year! This is the only green piece of clothing I have in my wardbrobe considering my favourite colour is green! Weird, no?! Actually I lie I do have this Christmas green dress from Tree People which is very green. Worn only once on Christmas day actually! Haha!
Bag is Tods and sandals are from Nine West.
AY CARAMBA, I feel like Miami Vice with my rolled up blazer sleeves thing going on.
..AY CARAMBA, I need new glasses!!!! How OLD are these? Well I can tell you, they are older than Jesus himself! I need to get with the times!!!! Roxy frames with [missing] diamantes just are not cool anymore(!) Which one shall I go for…?
A pair of Rapist glasses (apparently geek chic – by Gucci 2011)
Or some.. Tinnie Tempah glasses… (hmm these look a little bit rapey too)
Or these worn by Grace Woodward a London based creative and stylist!!! She looks fricken amazing!! These are the one!!! What are they?! …no one knows, not even the Internet?!! I resorted to calling Woodward’s PR instead and… I am still waiting for a call back!! (hours later) She called back (yay!) and they are from “Retro Super Future” Kanye West, Nicole Richies are fans of this brand too!
..didn’t think I would need to wear this until late September/October! I have thought the seasons have changed and pretty sure the leaves on some trees have gone orange already! It’s dark, dreary and at work today talk of this year’s CHRISTMAS PARTY, yup the deposit has been paid for! Wow, 22nd December feels like a few weeks aways!
On something a little more brighter I am feeling fully recovered from the weekend, BRING ON NEXT YEAR! 2012 V tickets go on sale tomorrow, not that it matters I don’t have any money! Boo bums!!!
My ring today is from ASOS bought in 2007, it’s made of copper so has lasted all these years! oohwee
Speechless!! Still can not believe we got to see Eminem!! WTH!! He was here!!! AT V!!! EMINEM!!!! Although he did keep shouting LONDON!! Who cares!!!!!! HAHA!!! He was there on stage joined by his homies D12, Royce da 5’9″ and of course RIHANNA, amazing!!! ★Just gona stand there and watch me burn★ Amazing, did make me cry a little bit, first ever time at a concert!!
