Low Bun

Fringed Leather Jacket - Vintage

My latest hair-related discovery is the low bun, and I've been loving it recently. The messy kind of course - bits of hair left out and the rest of the hair messily tied up. I've been getting a little bored of putting it all up on the top of my head when I want it out of my face, so I'm glad I've found a brand new way.

I've also rediscovered fishnets. Probably not the best time of the year for that rediscovery seeing as the temperature is getting annoyingly cold now, but I think I can get away with wearing them out for at least two more weeks. What d'ya reckon? I think they look pretty cool with the distressed denim skirt and white boots.

INSTA WEEK #45


Today is a good day. Today is the last day I ever have to work in customer service again. Ever. I'm starting my new job next week, which I am excited about, but also nervous because this is literally the first 'proper' job I've ever had, like Monday to Friday, no serving customers (woop). I'm also excited to not have to worry about money for the first time in like 5 years - still gotta pay the damn overdraft off, but luckily Barclay's give you two years to get that sorted.

Cosy Lace Up

Tailored Coat - Primark
Scarf - Primark
Shoes - Topshop (Old)

Definitely the most wintery outfit I've uploaded since the cold has hit, but one of my faves for sure. I try and avoid wearing coats and scarves and all things winter for as long as possible (I'm still not over summer), but I think this cosy blanket scarf from Primark finishes off the all black outfit perfectly. I feel like this is the scarf everyone is going to have this year, like last year it was that red check blanket scarf from Primark (although I never got my hands on that one!). This thing is so soft as well, I feel like I'm going to live in it.

I think I've mentioned how on point Primark's coat selection is before, but go and check it out if you haven't already! This tailored coat comes with a detachable fur collar, which I usually wear, but I felt like trading it in for the scarf in this outfit. I feel like this is one of those outfits that can easily be worn in both the day and for a night out - gotta love those.

Chenille and Denim

Denim Pinafore - Topshop (Old)
Biker Boots - River Island (Old)

This chenille shirt is the last piece that I picked up at The Vintage Kilo Sale (you search through all the vintage clothing, and pay £15 per kilo), and I think that it looks so cute with the pinafore.

INSTA WEEK #43 & #44


I completely forgot to post an Insta Week last week, so decided to smoosh this weeks and last weeks together. Last week I got a job in Tommy Hilfiger, but I'm leaving already because another job offer came up which is a lot more suited too me. I also don't think I'm cut out for the working in retail life as I have to talk to customers, and most of the time I find talking to other people too much effort. Soz, not soz. I am the definition of introvert. 

In other pet related news, we re-homed a little fluff ball called Millie! I say little, she's a bit on the chubbier side of things. I've been playing with her loads to get her into better shape #exercise. She's a British Blue, and she is fluffiest, cutest thing - I won't write too much about her here as I'm going to dedicate a post to her.

Vintage Roll Neck

Skirt - Topshop

I posted a week or so ago about The Vintage Kilo sale and the sassiest of denim shirts. The Vintage Kilo sale is also where I found this beautiful *roll neck jumper. It's basically everything that I look for in a jumper - chunky, oversized and has a roll neck (a recent obsession of mine). In case you missed the last post about the kilo sale, you basically wander round the many many rails of vintage gems, bag up your faves, and pay by the kilo (£15). It's quite good because you end up paying a lot less for the pieces than what they would be sold for in most vintage shops.

I think that the jumper pairs up perfectly with this wrap skirt I got in the Topshop sale about a month back - only a tenner as well, bargain! This is probably one of my fave Autumn outfits at the mo.

I got one other piece from the sale - I'll be including that in an outfit post next week, so watch out for that!

Spark

Y'know it's coming up to Christmas/New Years Eve when the high street becomes a flood of sequins and glitter. I basically want to buy all of the sparkly dresses in Topshop, but I would just never wear them. H&M have quite a big selection of sparkly pieces in at the moment - I posted a picture on my instagram of this amazing sequin mermaid two piece, but I ended up going for these shorts instead, just because I'm probably going to wear these a lot more.

I've also wanted a harness for absolutely ages, and I found a girl who hand makes them on eBay. I think I may add to this one a little bit though, I haven't decided yet. I think they look awesome layered below transparent tops like this mesh tee from Missguided, but also underneath a plunging neckline.

Grunge Inspired Autumn Makeup

I never post makeup looks, mainly because I suck at doing makeup, but I finally found a Superdrug that stocks Makeup Revolution and really wanted to create a grunge inspired Autumn look with the Iconic 3 palette. I believe this one is suppose to be a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 (wanted that for ages).

As I said before, I suck at doing makeup so much, so this is so simple to do. Just three shades and a whole lotta blending. I took the coppery shade (does it annoy anyone else when palettes don't have names for the shades??) all over my eyelids, and blended the taupey purple shade into the crease, as well as bringing it under my lower lash line. Finally, I blended the dark purple shade into the outer corners, taking it under the lower lash line and stopping halfway.

Cowgirl Sass

I was very kindly invited along to The Vintage Kilo Sale in Bethnal Green a couple of weeks back. Hunting through the masses of vintage clothes, I found this gem of a denim shirt, with all the cowboy trimmings. The Vintage Kilo Sale has a pretty cool concept - you pay £15 for every kilo of clothing you pick up, so you can end up with some amazing vintage pieces at a fraction of the price they would be in a lot of vintage shops. They do events all around the country as well, here's their Facebook page if you were interesting in looking.

These ASOS El Paso boots have all the western vibes, and look so perfect with the shirt. I think they may just be my fave purchase of 2015 so far (not including Glasto tickets, nothing will top that purchase), just look at all of those star studs. So dreamy.
