My “Rents” and little brother came up to Nottingham to see me last weekend J it was great to show them round my new “home”, although my mum was appalled by out uni kitchen (it’s truly disgusting but par for the course) .
I took these pics in the park behind my halls; I’ve just learnt it’s called the Arboretum (which means collection of trees).
This Diesel top is one of my first purchases for my Zalando Fashion Frenzy win. I love the fact it looks like a band T but isn’t.
I teamed it with my Topshop crushed velvet gold metallic tube skirt, my Primark fur jacket and my Acne Admire wedges.
The white snake print and gold cuff is from H and M.... it’s very reminiscent of a much coveted House of Harlow leather and gold version.
I love that it’s
getting a bit colder and all the leaves are such pretty colours. When I took
these pictures it was the perfect autumn day.
I’m wearing Topshop
waxed trousers, a white sheer New Look shirt, a faux fur gilet from Canada, and
my Jeffrey Campbell Climber boots, the cross studs are from Asos and the shirt
pins are vintage.
I found these shirt
collar pins in my mum’s vintage jewellery and immediately had to borrow them.
They instantly give any shirt a unique twist and after seeing the Zara shirt
with collar detailing on Fashion Toast it gave me even more reason to wear
Also I dip dyed my
hair purple!It was much brighter
at first but has now washed out into a lovely lilac colour. I used Paint Box
purple haze and also have the pink version to try out at a later date. These
colours should last anywhere between 3 and 30 washes.
I can’t wait for
tomorrow as I have a Uni trip to London and then the Motel and Glossy Box event
in the evening J
And to top off the
week my family are coming up to Nottingham this weekend to visit me J
Lots of pictures today as I just couldn’t pick my favourites.
I based the whole outfit around my new VJ style shoes (I loved them after seeing them on Le Happy) I really like the fact that they are sort of like a girly creeper, with the thick platform, point front and cute ankle strap, (the boy absolutely hates them … oh well). And although I’m saying they are my creeper substitutes I still am stalking a pair of double sole blue creepers on eBay J
The red velvet shorts are from Topshop, as is the black top and my leopard print coat is from Primark. The red watch is DKNY, and the rest of my jewellery is from everywhere.
I’m loving velvet for this winter after seeing it on the Michael van der Ham a/w 2011 runway. The jewelled colours, flirty silhouettes and drapery had me mesmerised the entire show.
I have found a great range of velvet pieces in the high street already, my favourites being at Topshop, Boohoo and Minkpink.
