Wearables 2

^^^ Today I wore ^^^
The striped top (charity shop) which have a great combination of colours which work in many outfits, the great high waist denim skirt (Beyond Retro) tho a wee bit to small its one of my favorites. Orange tights may seen like a bright chose but I think they work so well and I have never seen anyone else wear them, which is always a plus in my book even tho they are from Peacocks last winter. Mary Janes are one of my favorite style of shoe because they are so very flattering and complete any retro look, black and gold belt from the shop I work in Ju Ju (I seem to own a lot of skinny belt but I can't help myself and they can change the whole fit of a dress/skirt quick and simply).

The thing about petty coats is...

I don't know about you but i wear a lot of dresses and skirts, even more so in the winter because i find trousers cold and find i want to put woolly tights or leggings on. At the end of last summer as it began to get cold and the layering got in to full swing that old pet hate returned, that riding of the hem line as your walking along. Sometimes getting court between your legs or just in general riding up, worst of all riding up at the back where your bag sits and only the people behind you notice and don't bother to tell you. And as you may have guest this is where the wonder that is the petty coat comes in, I picked one up at my local Beyond Retro, but i have seen them in most vintage and second hand stores and they on cost between £5 and £10 in a range of colours...bargain!

 *Best buy of last year*

Breakfast with Lemons and Tiffany's

Woke up feeling a bit poorly, like the heating had been left on (but it hadn't). Aaron went and got me a lemon (hot honey and lemon the best cure for a sore throat) so I'm making a speedy recovery with Audrey at my side. I'm making the hearts to string together for our new flat which we are moving into in 2 weeks i can't wait  to make it our own.

Asos Night Cap

Cut out and wedges and lace oh my, and to top it all off a vintage channel bag.
Sweet dream will be had by me tonight thank you Asos

Gold Fingers

I have had a love affair with gold for years now and believe we will live happily ever after. It got spurred on this Christmas when Aaron got me an Irregular Choice voucher and I had my eye on those ankle boots for a while (which I am now the proud owner of). Gold nail polish is my next buy foe sure, so that when i make the paper flowers or cupcakes I can match them perfectly especially this awesome new crazy of edible glitter *maybe the best thing ever invented!*
