New stuff

Top: H&M, Trousers: Zara, Shoes: Kate Kanzier

Right so on Wednesday we had our Chinese written exam which for me was an unmitigated disaster in the way only an exam you have to write in Chinese can be, so afterwards I went shopping and picked up both this top and trousers - the trousers from Zara I was pleasantly surprised to find fit, and with ankle zips! Being 5ft nothing with a 'strange' figure (read 'perfectly normal') I struggle to get trousers that fit without lots of rolling up so zips and exciting features are normally a no-no. After this I thought wearing new stuffs would make me forget the exam and feel all ooooh and oooh and new and excited.....but it didn't.

Scarf: India, Cardi:......somewhere a long time ago

Adding the cardi and scarf and vague jazz hands helped a bit but overall new clothes just feel I went for 'basics' and there just isn't the same excitement as picking up something like a mental vintage shirt from a car boot sale. But I suppose it has to be done.
Thrilling climax to a blog post right there.

I'm off to eurocultured to spend the day watching lots and lots of other people have loads of fun from behind a bar whilst sneakily imbibing as much free food and drink as possible. Anyone in Manchester, you should pop down!


(I still have one exam :( so blogging will be back to the back seat)

pretty funky for a white girl

Shirt: Vintage Jaeger from carboot £3, Badge: Tatty Divine (via my boyfriend), Shorts: Blue Rinse Vintage, Shoes: Miss Selfridges

Love this shirt, my boyfriend said it was 'funky', I think we both know what he meant was 'I love you, but you make it so so hard sometimes'.
Dissertation handed in on Friday which was such a relief - hence the silence. Three exams till I'm finished and actually finally get some letters after my name!

Jacket: Korea, Shirt: Car Boot, Shorts: Blue Rinse Vintage, Boots: New Look, Necklace:....permanently borrowed off an old friend of mine who I know probably still wants it back

Another guitar I can't play!
I love the colour of this silk shirt and I picked it up for £3 but then it turned out to be massive so I cut the sleeves off in the hope it wouldn't look so huge. It didn't really work as now it's just massive round the shoulders but so long as I keep a cardi on at all times it's fine.


P.S Putney (the cat) came home! She wandered in after two nights away as if nothing had happened.

Spot the human

Shirt: Car Boot sale £3, Belt: floor at work, Shorts: Blue Rinse Vintage, Sunnies: China

Back down in London for the weekend, managed both the Royal Wedding from Hyde Park - which was spectacular and also back for Chiswick Car Boot Sale which is massive and a personal fave. Brilliant weekend, tainted only slightly by the shocking realisation my dissertation is in in less than two weeks and our baby cat's gone missing.
