Accessories wish list

A mini post on some current accessories I am drooling over (quite literally)

Vivienne Westwood small envelope bag £250
Atalanta Weller clay black side zip boots £220
 Waiting for the sun 19.6G Naturel Sunglasses £110

I have been lusting over this bag for many months now and I can't see it belonging to me until my birthday next summer!
The boots are so essential and practical, yes i could find a replica pair for a fifth of the price but why would i want to do that!
Classic round glasses with a natural tinted lens. perfect for spring when it does come round again.
Why must every key accessories i want always be so painfully expensive!??!

Xmas Wish List #1


Boots: Topshop
Cut out Body: Urban Outfitters
Chanel Nail varnish: 515 Peche Nacree
Chanel: Coco Noir 
Chanel lipstick: Excentrique
Velvet Maxi: Asos
Velvet Mesh Body: Dirty Pretty Things
Chanel Blush: Rose Ecrin
Body: Love

Christmas is fast approaching! and I always use it as an excuse to buy more luxurious items!
A definite on my list is Chanel Coco Noir. I tested it on my skin today. From the bottle, the scent is very intense and 'grown up', a classic Chanel, and on my skin, the perfume settled out perfectly. Any perfume may smell different on another person as everyone has there personal scent, I love how that works out!
I also bought a Chanel lipstick in Excentrique, a perfect tangerine!
I can't wait until christmas, it really is an excuse to add glamour to your wardrobe.

Mini haul

Jeans: BDG
Velvet crop: American Apparel
Striple Turtle neck: American Apparel
Coat: Vintage
Watch + Bracelet @ Urban Outfitters

As a poor student I shouldn't be buying anything more than bread and cheap carbs, but alas I have been gradually spending on goodies.
Winter is such a cosy month and I hate the cold! The turtle necks look really stylish tucked into high waisted jeans with ankle boots. I'm trying to be practical with my purchases and mix and match them, although I can foresee my spending heading towards a lot of velvet and glitter for christmas!

Newly purchased Vintage suede and fur coat!
From Starfish Vintage in Brighton Laines

Today I went to a small vintage fair with my flatmate. It was a chilly walk and this coat kept me so snug. I'm so pleased with it! It was £80 but compared to current retail coat prices (which are ridiculous!), I think I got a good deal for what it is. It's my vision of the 'perfect' winter coat.
My jeans are american apparel high waist, and I practically live in them.
My boots are really old mens clarks boots. I didn't realise this however, I thought they were vintage until I got home and my mum told me they were 'Clarks' whoops.

Mini Haul!

I've been at university for over 2-3 weeks now and have done some cheeky Brighton shopping. There's so much variety, all my desires seem catered for! I'm hoping the next three years here will be an exciting journey.

My first purchase were the American Apparel high waist jean in medium wash. They are so 90's i just love them. At £70 they are the most expensive pair of jeans I have owned to date but certainly the best...and my bum looks killer in them.

I went to the Student lock in night in the shopping centre where selected retailers offered big discount for us. It was ridiculously busy and one girl fainted, fell on her face and lay there passed out with blood streaming down her face, all in a days shopping! 

Urban outfitters haul! 
A tartan mens scarf at £16 and black raw edge levi's £32 bringing out the autumnal side of me. 
The black polka dot playsuit is cut out, i'm optimistic but willing to cooperate, I just hope the cold weather doesn't affect me wearing it! 
The Sessun jumper was originally £110 and after sale and discount I got it for a ridiculous £9. I couldn't believe my luck. It's such a quirky little thing and I love the short sleeves and tie waist detail.

Topshop high leather boots! These were £70 but well worth the splurge. They have not yet given me blisters so are already in my good books! They're so on trend and I'm able to wear them with so many things, such a versatile winter piece!

I'm not usually a winter wardrobe girl but I'm definitely excited this year. 
Heavy knits and humungous scarves will be on my wish list if my bank balance agrees.........

**Perhaps not quite dressed for sunny weather!**

I gave in and got the blazer I wanted a couple of posts ago! It's so comfortable and goes well with loads, pretty chuffed! A not very exciting black and grey outfit but to my taste! My blazer was paired with a grey marl sara t shirt with PVC sleeves, faded black jeans, leather topshop loafers and bag and accessorised with sunglasses and a thick choker! I curled my hair into ringlets at the very ends, it looked adorable! Having shorter hair has been a god send, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. Even thinking of getting it cut shorter, so it's thicker and wild!
I went to get some lunch with my bf as it was such a lovely day. I did originally have a navy cashmere jumper underneath too, but the heat was too much, so off it went!

Bought this ZARA metal mesh necklace from work today. I think its perfect. Grey stones and gems, metal chains, lush! Its going to be so fun to accessorise with, putting it under cute collars and with plain tee's! It is £19.99 and for what it is I think its very reasonably priced, at least compared to other high street retailers.

My outfit is comprises of an american apparel circle denim skirt. I'm a little afraid to wear it out however as its incredibly short. I tucked a grey marl topshop dress inside, plain simple bam bam.
My shoes are topshop espadrille heels and are heaven to wear. Suede lace ups with a side buckle, the perfect height of heel. I'm upset with myself that I haven't made an effort to wear these during the summer (not that England has had much of one) as they would look so cute with jeans and a casual tee.


chow for now

What I Want!

A monochrome palette is really appealing to me recently! So I have taken it upon myself to invest in some key pieces for autumn, one of which are these Topshop ankle biker boots. I love them! They're not too OTT and would go perfect with jeans and a slouchy top. Fashionable practicality at its best. I really want a simple oversized boyfriend blazer too, and this Urban Outfitters one seems to tick the right boxes. Also from UO I would quite fancy this pretty 'Clustered rose' top by Kimchi Blue with oversized keyhole back! Last but not least is this Cheap Monday high slit t shirt in black. Revealing but in a poised and cool manner, of course.  Next pay day better be a good one £££$$£$

Bought this black halter body from American Apparel a few days ago and i'm in love! It fits like a dream. It is a deep V and having quite small boobies, I was relived that it didn't expose me in a nasty way. It's so comfortable and versatile, I only wish the weather would stay bright so I could wear it more. With student discount I bought it for £19, which is reasonable (for AA) i think.

My skirt is Topsop. A chiffon maxi with high slits either side. I love the paisley print mixed with check and diamond prints. Instead of a mini skirt slip underneath, there are mini jersey shorts which is so much more practical, especially when the wind blows. It was £48

Green OFTD

  Jumper: Topshop/ Dress: Topshop/ Belt+Sunnies:Urban outfitters

New Jumper from Topshop. It's so comfy and has knitted line detail on the elbows and front. I like the contrast of green and white together, I feel like I'm dressed for a warm spring day. I'm not too sure if I clash though, but either way it's a fun outfit!

                                         Cardigan: H&M/ Jumper: Petite Bateau/ Shirt:H&M/ Jeans: Topshop/ Boots:Vintage store

I am wearing rather a lot of black combo's recently and quite like it! I like and somewhat prefer the relaxed effortless look yet still looking smart and chic, if you may. I found my old chelsea boots today also! I found them in a little vintage shop in Camden and they're so comfy and fit like a dream. Originally I was wearing a dark purple lipstick with this look but slapped a mac red on instead for a contrast! I also am becoming really really fond of putting my hair up in a loose messy bun with a clip. I feel like an art teacher, next will be using chop sticks to hold in place. 

Chow for now!
