Boux Avenue.

For christmas, my boyfriend gave me a lovely little bag from 'boux avenue', a company which I'd always wondered about, as one of their stores was opened near me.

I'm so impressed with Boux Avenue on a whole. They have clicked onto a market of lingerie which I feel places such as Ann Summers & La Senza missed out on - the vintage boudoir esque feel that all girls want when picking out lingerie. When you walk in it doesn't feel like a place full of raunchy sex toys and cringey outfits, which of course is great for some people, but for me I love the girliness of having lingerie. It's like walking into a vintage dressing room - with drawers filled with frilly knickers and pretty pyjamas hung up delicately. I'm not the best at explaining things - but on a whole they have the nicest lingerie and the prettiest shop out of all the places I've visited.

I got this pretty pink number with frills, and it was gift wrapped so elegantly.
Have you ever bought from Boux Avenue?

BIG FAT DISCLAMIER - I have never even been contacted/ affiliated with/paid by Boux Avenue - just genuinely was impressed and thought the set was too pretty not to show! :)

Video Games.

St Michael striped breton jumper, thrifted - £1
Topshop leather leggings, gift
Chunky knit red scarf, primark - £3

I went to meet a friend for a coffee and hit up a few charity shops, and wore a pretty casual outfit. Really love jumpers with leather leggings at the moment - although the leggings aren't the warmest thing in the world!

Also got some treats from a local chinese supermarket and couldn't help showing you..

They also had live crabs/lobsters and aloe vera juice?! I love eating foods from different places - especially the sweet things!

I'm off to a gig on thursday in Leeds, one of my favourite band from being a teen - oh yes - panic! at the disco! They've always had a special place in my heart ;) and I'm being the adult with my little sister and her friend. I went last year by myself and loved it - but my god, I'm such a wimp at gigs, I'm so tiny I just get thrust around everywhere! I think I'll keep it quite basic and wear a bustier and leather shorts like I did last time.
I'm also off to the very event in London on friday, and then the zomg blogger bash on monday - let me know if any of you are going! It's going to be a busy week for me to say the least!

OH And I've made a facebook page for she wears fashion, just so when I do a new post and people aren't on the blogger dashboard, they can still see :) Just like my facebook page HERE :-)

So today was a fairly normal day, James & I usually go to a carboot but because of the wind, when we turned up there was like 5 stalls so we just went. Theres only one running until March and I'm so frustrated because it's where most of the stock for the shop is going to be from! I've still got a few gems I'm selling however to keep me going till March :) The items are all going up tomorrow at 7pm HERE, as they're on a scheduled listing. There's only a handful at the moment & this jumper is one of them..

Bird knit jumper, thrifted (carboot) - 50p
Topshop leather leggings, gift
Black hand knit chunky snood, ebay - £5
Fox ring, gift
Blue stone ring, primark - £2

I'm so sad to be selling it as I think its the cutest jumper in the whole world, but I have to realise I own too many knits/jumpers so I cannot justify having it.. even if it was only 50p!
I'll be tweeting when all the items go up etc, so please let me know what you think of the stock etc, and if you like it and all that jazz. I don't want it to be a 'blogshop', I want it to be an actual shop that could potentially be my career, but of course I'm going to just have to see how it all pans out :) But any feedback is muchos appreciated, and if anyone is wanting anything 'buy it now' im open to resonable offers if you just mail my ebay account!

Meet my new babies..


& Dash :)

They are the cutest little rabbits in the whole world! They're sisters and are constantly snuggling up to each other. They are both ridiculously tame, they don't scratch/bite/kick and are very mischeveous.

They are currently sat next to me on their little rabbit bed on my bed having a snooze :)
Do you guys have any cute pets? (stupid question, I bet you all do hehe!)

mr. know-it-all

Just a few quick snaps, I wore this yesterday when we went to the petshop to pick up the two newest additions to my family. If you follow me on twitter, you'll know what they are, but for now I'll leave it as a surprise until a proper post full of lots of cute pictures!

Primark beige knit crop jumper - £12
Topshop floral playsuit, ebay - £20
Suede schuh heel boots, ebay - £12
Ring - gift

I couldn't resist buying this knit jumper from primark, it's not the most flattering but is super cosy!

I've been posting way more recently but it's been mega hard - I'm still shooting my photos in JPEG rather than RAW, but only because I'm so lost as to what to do! I've had my NIKON D3000 SLR camera for over a year now but I definitely need a crash course in photography! I feel like my photos need major help when it's winter - the dark is my worst enemy :( if anyone has any tips or reads any good tutorials please let me know, I'd love to know how all you lovely bloggers get such wonderful photos!

Take me down like I'm a domino

Went shopping last week with the boy and picked up a few essentials (primark slippers ftw) and got all layered up. I'm not great with my a/w wardrobe, but I'm loving snoods and knit jumpers. I sorted my wardrobe out earlier this week and found so many lovely knits I forgot I owned - and just in time too!

Mens burgundy knit snood, primark - £5
Khaki cardigan, charity shop - £4.50
Topshop black maxi dress, ebay - £11
H&M leopard clutch c/o The Look show goody bag
Turquoise ring, carboot - 50p
Topshop gold heart watch bracelet, ebay - £7

I'm glad we went to a shopping mall, as my feet would have frozen in my wooden clog wedges, they were getting chilly in the car let alone in the icy cold!

How have you guys found the a/w fashion?

So recently it was my nineteenth birthday. Thankyou all so much for the lovely birthday messages on twitter! I had such a lovely day! I woke up to chocolate pancakes in bed with balloons everywhere, and as I came downstairs, I saw my birthday cake & got to open all my amazzzzing presents! Me and my boy then went to a few charity shops, abit of primark shopping (i got some new knickers and pyjamas, of course!) and then went out for a meal. I wore my new vintage faux fur coat I got off him for christmas - it's sooo snuggly!

I also got some 'American chocolates' off my little sister & two packs of my favurite ever chocolate - FORRERO ROCHER ... but I ate them all hahahahaha so sorry bout that. Then I recieved my 3 FAVOURITE presents of all..
My boyfriend bought me a Thomas Sabo charm bracelet! We went to pick the charms together - because he really didn't want to get it wrong with something so expensive! The star is because I'm his star (yep cheesey blah blah) & the 'eternity' one is pretty self explanitory, same with the letter K. The 'frog on a pearl' was just beaaautiful, so I picked all these. and I haven't taken it off!

These are now my favourite pair of shoes. They are lookalikeys of the forever coveted Tan 'Dany Jessica Simpson' & 'Jeffrey Campbell Foxys' and they are SO beautiful. They are the 'Asos bitten platforms', and they are the nicest quality ever. They were also £75, so they are the most expensive shoes I own. Cannot wait to whip these out in the summer! And they are SO comfy!

.. and finally, this was the biggest surprise ever. My dad bought me a laptop. Now, if I'm honest, I've never had so much money spent on me, a laptop this nice is so out of my parents price range, so it was such an incredible surprise, and I am so so grateful! It means I can take my blog with me wherever I go.. and yeah its not a MAC, but I love it, and I think I'm always going to be a PC girl at heart ;) it also had HD graphics and a CORE i5 processor - which apparently makes it really good. Literally been sat watching so much tv on it at night!

So yeah, this was my birthday! I feel like genuinely this is 'my year' and I'm really going to try and keep this blog up to date!
