BACKING UP

Tuesday, 8 April 2014


































































































Here, you bear witness to me giving youth the cold shoulder - figuratively and literally - for the first part of my birthday celebrations. I picked up this backless jumper from H&M (I can't find it in H&M's online store but I found a pretty awesome dupe) and paired it with my trusty Topshop skinnies and Louboutin Pigalles.

Also, behold my new jewellery favourites - a teeny horse shoe on a chain, a mere £15 from ASOS. And it's gold plated! Bargain. And my new chunky chain bracelet, a present from my Mama (and Papa, although I'm pretty sure he didn't pick it out...) from Next.

All in all, a very happy birthday - thanks to those who celebrated with me.

THE BIG PINK

Friday, 21 March 2014






























































If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I am powerless to anything pink and fluffy. Unsurprisingly then, when this (now ubiquitous) coat hit ASOS, I snapped it up straight away. I'd been hankering after the Carven version (upon which this one seems to be based), but couldn't quite justify the small fortune for such a season-specific style. Regarding the sizing, I'd recommend sizing down. I opted for a size 8 and it's pretty roomy.

A couple of weeks ago, I hung out with the lovely Emma from Lolita Says So (one of my favourite blogs in the whole world - her photography is sublime) for a spot of lunch and some long overdue outfit snapping.

I wore the aforementioned coat with my new favourite trousers, a pair of pleather babies from Topshop, my trusty fuzzy H&M jumper from the old Lana del Rey campaign, a fluoro yellow Jimmy Choo candy clutch (a fortuitous sample sale bargain from a few years ago) and these seriously sparkly Jimmy Choo sunglasses. Add in my beloved Chanel trainers and I call this look 'eccentric pensioner who's popped out to collect food for her 12 cats'.
