90's Buns


Just a quick post today with a little video showing how I do those cute lil' 90's buns.  Soz about the theme of bad quality running through this post - I had too use my iPhone 5 camera, which most definitely ain't the best of the best.  




You basically just twist the hair round your index finger, slide your finger out, and secure using a bobby pin.  Easy!

INSTA WEEK #2


Every time I come home from uni, I force the monsters into a pet selfie (bottom left) - how adorbs does Yugi look!?  If anyone was wondering what's up with his left eye, it's actually a battle scar from one of his many fights.  Him and his bro Tao skulk around the neighborhood together, on the hunt for other cats to fight.  Serious, I've seen them do it.

If you didn't catch the first outfit featuring the fur camel coat and want to see it, click here!

How awesome is this panther tee?  He looks so angry.  I definitely don't wear it enough, but you know me... I like my clothes big enough for two, and I think this one was bought before my cray cray oversized days begun.  Just shows how old it is, because I don't even remember when I didn't want everything to be three sizes too big.

Anyone follow Lua, on Le-Happy.com?  She recently posted an outfit, and instead of wearing a shirt underneath her top, she just had a collar around her neck.  I thought that was a genius idea - shirts can get bloody uncomfortable under tee's, so why not have just the collar?

Faux Fur Camel Coat #1


Faux Fur Camel Coat - Vintage
Snake Print Shirt - Vintage
Dress - Urban Outfitters (Old)
Boots - Depop
Choker - eBay

I bought this fur camel coat bloody ages ago, and completely forgot I had it.  Happy days when I came home from uni on Sunday, and found the poor thing hanging alone in my wardrobe.  Soz for neglecting you, I love you really.  I swear I am constantly rediscovering old clothes.  Deffo a sign that I have too many.

I'm pretty certain on the fact that it is all I will be wearing, day and night, so why not do a few posts on how I style it?  I'm not sure of whether there will be two or three yet, so bare with.

I also finally got my mitts on some over-the-knee boots, YAY.  Okay, I kinda wish they were a bit taller, but how could I say no for £12.50?  Bargain right there.
