Bowler Baby!

Saturday, 28 May 2011


Yesterday I spent the day with my friend Rachel! We had been going on for ages about having a day out, and since we both had a break from school, we decided to!

We went for lunch (Chinese, YUM!), then had a little walk round the city. Rachel is so fun to be around, we have soo much in common, it's quite scary! She also doesn't mind messing around taking pictures in public, with an audience of on looking passers by! haha! 

We ended up at the Cinema after our walk about, and we saw Pirates of The Caribbean 4, which was pretty good, however I would have loved Orlando Bloom to gawk at! lol! ..xo

Up to my neck with revision! Meh. Thought I'd post some pictures of Killer Heels I'm digging at the moment. What do you think of the whole sock/heel trend? I kinda like it!

Hope you're having a good weekend! :)

*PS* I'm dying to own a pair of Foxy Woods. I think that's my Most Wanted Item at the moment!
*Goshes at the thought of strutting down the street in those babies...*

My new Love.

Satchel, £5.

Oh Primark, you have done it again.
I spotted this cute satchel while browsing around the store yesterday, and I immediately thought of Céline's Spring Summer 11 collection of Shoulder Satchels (Pictured Below).

The Primark one has sort of a vintage look, but bares a slight resemblance in shape and size to Céline's.
How divine do these look though? I especially like the Yellow one!

A Shop & Tell Video will be filmed and uploaded to Youtube once I get home from Uni later, so make sure you subscribe to My Channel to be updated! :) ..xo


Sheer Simplicity.

Guess what... I actually made this skirt!!! :D DIY FTW!! 
It's all thanks to the lovely Geneva for her amazing DIY posts! I was inspired, decided to give it a go and tadaaa!! To see the original DIY post of how to go about making your own, Click Here!

I'm back in Nottingham now, went into town to run a few errands and schtuff! The weather was so funny, one minute overcast the next sunny. Way to make a girl feel clueless as to what to wear!! Lol!
Thought this ensemble was suitable, however! :)

Skirt : DIY (Chiffon Fabric)
Top : Topshop
Belt : Primark
Bag : Topshop
Wedges : New Look
Cuff : c/o Jewel Mint

*PS* I'm wearing a bodycon skirt underneath!

Fresh Face, Dirty Eyes.

It's my version of a look that was featured in the Metro Paper some years back, and I remember reading it, and enjoying doing my makeup like this for a while.
About time I shared with you! :)

Behold! My new Vintage Skirt I ordered from Beyond Retro! I was so excited when I found it, and for a very generous £10, it HAD to be mine! I paired it with one of my favourite white shirts (Tailored Graphic Whites are so in this summer yay!) and my beloved Zara Court Shoes!
Sorry there aren't any 'details' shots, as these where spur of the moment photos taken after the MAC Event (blogging about that next) by the lovely Livia, thank you girl!
I have another Skirt and Two Bustiers from BR that I can't wait to show you!

Happy Friday! :)

Take a look at what my summer wardrobe is going to be like.
