Indian summer

Weird weather going on in England right now, we're having a belated summer falling in the Autumn called an 'Indian summer'. Its all nice and sunny but my wardrobe is rather confused.

Vintage floral shorts, ebay - £25
Vintage white lace bustier, ebay - £18
Converse, ebay - £15

These floral shorts are my absolute favourite! They are two sizes two big which sortof shows on the pictures but they're super comfy and I pinned them at the back so they aren't toooo baggy. The converse definitely didnt get enough wear out of them this summer, but the summer was pants, so I'm making the most of it this week! The shorts and shoes were actually bought last summer! And I just never ever had a chance to blog about it, I'm such an awful blogger - woopsie!

YSL arty ring ends tomorrow, and the winner will be picked and announced in about a weeks time :)

Jar of hearts.

Enjoyed my two days off work, and have decided that I will try and update at least once a week as I've been neglecting big time, and theres just so much to show you!

Vintage white bustier top, ebay - £18
Vintge DIY polka dot cullottes, Carboot - 50p
Belt, came with a skirt
Vintage brown mini satchel backback, carboot - 50p
Black swallow cut out wedges, ebay - £20
Stag necklace, primark - £2.50 or something?

Remember my white bustier bralet top from this post? well, its too big for me on the bust and I had to face the fact it just wasnt fitting me anymore. I tried to find one similar but couldn't, until I stumbled across a baby pink one. I bleached it and then painted it with fabric paint.. and voila!
The cullottes are vintage marks&spencers, and were actually like, palazzo trousers. But I cut them up into shorts :) The bag was such a steal, especially as places like topshop are charging extortionate prices for the little satchel bags!

My hair looks a little crazy, it' was crazy windy! I've been wearing my hair up alot at work as my hair is getting so long now, it just gets n the way.

Heres hoping I keep up with the frequent blog posts! :)

Thats what makes you beautiful.

These photos were taken on wednesday and I have only just had the time to do an official bloggypost - oh dear!
So much stuff has happened since the last time I posted -
I have a new (so much better and fashion related) job!
My boyfriend and I are now long distance
My bank balance is alot healthier - I sold lots of my old clothes and have been on quite the tight spending ban.
All my friends have left me and gone off to uni, I'm so depressed!

Other than that I've been pretty normal, I'm alot better now. I'm less anaemic as I've been eating lots of healthy fruit and vegg, and I've even started working out more so I'm just an all round fit and healthier person! I want to apologise for how slow I've been with blogging/tweeting/tumblring(haha?) as my new job has genuinely just taken up so much of my life. And if you were wondering - it's nothing fancy pancy it's just a fashion retail job, but it's miles better than my previous job! Bit miffed I couldn't go to any LFW things or the lookshow, but couldn't really take any days off my new job and didn't fancy spending so much money! Maybe next year, ey?

Dress, vintage - free
Heels, ebay - £20
Ring, ebay - £12
Clutch, vintage - £2.50
Hat, primark - £6
'Make A Song & Dance' Necklace - C/o Eclectic eccentricity

I found the dress amongst some old things of my mums, its a vintage dorothy perkins number and a size 14. To be honest its awful on the hanger, but belted up, a good pair of heels and a fancy hat, it looks pretty lovely!

I've wanted a black floppy hat for ages and of all places to have the one I wanted? PRIMARK. I love it, except it really is so hard to take pictures because it shades my face and I'm no expert photographer, so therefore I do not know how to fix the lighting problem except take many pictures until a few are OK. The hat is genuinely so good at 'making' an outfit. Put it with literally any outfit and you look 10x classier and more sophisticated, it's amzazing!
I also wanted a little harmonica necklace for ages and EE were kind enough to send me one, it actually works and everything! It's so quirky and cute I can't get over it!

Think thats enough from me, I'm hoping to update soon but sorry if it's not as soon as it should be! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
