Well, aren’t we the worst bloggers in the world! Claire and I have been super busy and have neglected blogging horribly. BUT OH WELL.
I have fallen in love with these Primark flatforms and genuinely can’t get enough of them. Unfortunately, they absolutely ruin my feet – the ankle straps literally BRUISE my ankles and unfortunately, I can’t wear them for very long. Which is a shame. I don’t know if any of you gals have bought flatforms from Primark before, but I would be mega keen to hear whether you’ve have the same problem?
But anywho, I also wore my new favourite velvet leggings, which are from New Look. They’re also on sale at the moment for £7, so if I were you, I would run there faster than a fast thing on legs to grab a pair. They are literally perfect for these chilly autumn days. On my top bits, I have on my FAVOURITE Missguided Baroque style shirt. When I bought it, it reminded me a bit of a Mandela shirt. If you don’t know what a Mandela shirt looks like…
What can I say, the man was a style inspiration. Blimey.
What do you think? Is Mandela your new style inspo?
Before anyone criticises me too much, I have relatively changed my mind about drop waisted dresses and skirts. I have always been like WHY, WHY DO THESE THINGS EXIST THEY ARE STUPID when it comes to drop waisted things, but now I have changed my mind and decided to love them, c’est la vie.
And the dress that changed my mind is this one. Granted, I bought it when I was slightly merry and had been drinking virtually all day in the delights of Yorkshire, this should have been a total disaster. But I was so pleasantly surprised, and for the price, it is such a great little buy. But how much was it, I hear you asking? WELL. IT WAS FIVE POUNDS. Yes. Five human pounds. This bad boy was a part of the Primark fiver range, which continues to impress me. While the quality isn’t great, for standard dresses that do alright for work and so forth, they really are great. I wore this out when we headed out in Hull for a delightful partay, and it worked really well with heels too.
I’m wearing it today with my favey denim jacket, my ASOS platforms (cough, I never wear these hehe) and a few bits of jewellery I have found lying around my room.
What do you think of this £5 Primark dress? Worth the bargain?
(What a stupid question Lauren, of course it is worth the bargain)
I am happy to say that Claire is back in England and I no longer have to cry myself to sleep every night. I’m not really sure how I coped quite frankly.
In my state of unhappiness and woe, I had to go shopping to try and cheer myself up in Claire’s absence. It did help actually, especially since I found this absolutely fabulous denim jacket from Cow, a vintage shop based in Birmingham (although they have shops in Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield too!). If you’re ever in the Birmingham area, I thoroughly recommend a visit to Cow – they have some absolutely EXCELLENT vintage denim and also loads of bags/shoes/dresses/errrrrything. I was really tempted by a chain print blouse while I was there as well, but managed to not get too drawn in (how, I don’t know). They retail online as well, so go and have a nosey kids, this is their website. The Birmingham Cow is based in Digbeth.
Anywho, enough ramblings about how much I enjoy Cow. The denim jacket I got is from the men’s section, mainly because I couldn’t find a ladies one with the right level of acid wash. I wanted it pretty oversized anyway, so I’m MEGA pleased with it even if I am technically cross dressing.
I paired the jacket with a simple Missguided swing dress, a gold chain and my horribly battered converse. I’ve got Rimmel’s Apocolips in Big Bang on my face (no really, I managed to get it in my eyebrow this morning) and fashioned my hair into some french braids.
HUZZAH. I only slightly look like an alien in that little selfie OH WELL.
