Stella McCartney platform dupe ~ C/O FrontRowShop

Why is it so much easier to write a blog post than a cover letter? I'm taking a little break from the myriad of job applications I'm doing today to share with you my newest acquisition, YES MORE SHOES! The lovely ladies at FrontRowShop asked me to choose an item to style and after seeing these on Pretty Sickly on Instagram I knew I wanted these. I've been..shall we say keen (obsessed) with getting my hands on a pair of shoes that resemble the Stella McCartney 'Kristy' pumps for a very long time, and finally these perfect little beauties are mine   I   A M   I N  L O V E !

Hey lovelies :) I'm currently snuggled under a blanket loving life, watching New Girl, I frigging love Schmit 'dolla dolla bells ya'll' LOL! I could go on...Anyway, thought I'd take the opportunity to share some of my recent purchases with you guys. I told myself this month I would only be shopping in charity shops, little did I know the American Apparel Outlet down the road would take over my life and being sad about how shit  uni is would make me reach for my bank card. I swear I cannot actually look at my bank account unless I am forced to pay rent or something. IT'S HARROWING. 

- Knit Midi dress from Miss Selfridge I got this with my uniform allowance from work, I love it!! It's bodycon and a little sexy with cut outs on the back whilst being warm and cosy for winter.
- Grey midi skirt from Primark
- Glittery midi skirt from Primark I've seen so many people wearing this skirt it's lush, the right length so pervy weirdos won't shout at you in East London
- American Apparel Easy Jeans I had these in light wash but I really wanted them in black, I got them for £34 in the Outlet and they are AMAZING! SO STRETCHY YAY FOR FAT ME :)
- American Apparel Riding pants I wanted these for a while and was so happy to find a pair in grey, they go with everything but they make me miss horse riding :(
- Primark skeleton print cut out shoulder studded shirt What more is there to say, this shirt is dope and already I'm getting into Halloween fever WOOOOOO!
- Gold and black belt  from Primark
- Hold ups Told you I'm getting Halloween fever - que slutty but well thought out home-made costume ideas
-American Apparel black denim circle skirt Not entirely sure this is me, a forgotten ebay purchase, may try and be girly soon :)

I've got to go get ready now, literally going raving with the freshers lol wish me luck..

Aaaaaaaaand look what else I found at the boot sale ...

 Heeeeeeeey lovelies! Thank you tons for all the lovely comments you've been sending my way lately, I'm so surprised at the response ye olde blog has been getting. And hey to any new followers, I hope I don't suddenly seem all shit after you see this post haha!! 

Just a quick one. I'm writing to you from within the pain and misery filled place of not knowing/being able to afford doing anything with my hair it's SO BORING at the moment! Apparently ombre just isn't satisfying, I want a pink afro for crying out loud! I can't face doing my own braids again this month, that's nine hours of my life I'll never be getting back. 
Even worse than boring hair is the fact I got my card declined today, when I was trying to spend £5.98 on some lovely fabric dyes for my 50p white jumper from the bootsale. Dicks at HSBC won't let me extend my student overdraft because I am always in it, I AM A STUDENT OF COURSE I LIVE IN THE VERY BOTTOM OF OVERDRAFT CRETINS! 

On a lighter note, I found my bindis and the car-boot sale on Sunday was pretty good. My first time ever I didn't really know what to expect but I managed to pick up a few absolute gems at bargain prices. One of those gems is my new denim hoodie/jacket with embroidered elephants on it. £2 !!!!

 I'll be doing another post tomorrow dedicated to my numerous other marvellous finds, as well as putting loads of my clothes/shoes on Ebay due to aforementioned dirt poorness :( 

in the meantime....

Charity shops and a vintage fair : London is bleeding me dry

 Hey guys , so today it was raining in London town and despite this fact I decided it was okay to wear tiny little shorts (albeit with tights, getting some weird looks in the library now NOT APPROPRIATE ). Sorry about the bathroom mirror pics, nobody around today to take any :/

 Where is it from?

Jumper: Topshop (last winter)
Shorts: DIY from a charity shop
T shirt: Gina Tricot
Lipstick: Mac in Velvet Teddy

My dad went on a weekend away to Stockholm with his lovely girlfriend (who I am sure chose my gift) and came back with this really cool t-shirt for me, you can't really tell much from the picture but it has this cool ombre rainbow thing going on , I love it.

This week has been a week of pure procrastination, my exams are only a month away yet I saw it fit to be wondering around Hammersmith and Shepards Bush all day. Me and Hanna (from the Sheet ) trawled through various charity shops and wondered around Westfield all day. Resulting in me only having £20 to live on until Monday :(. But it was all worth it for these bargains :

Shirt : £1.50 Cancer research
Shorts : DIYed from trousers £3.00

I apologise for looking like a complete idiot in this photo.

Dress: Reiss 1971 collection £10 Triad

Now if only I had a pair of these......

 And I'll have a killer outfit on my hands.

Just going to have a little moan about Triad (charity shop) by the way....

So I went into triad in Shepards Bush and I found this nice multicoloured 80's print maxi skirt  and lo and behold was I delighted to see a price tag of £2 on it. However, on going to the cashier I was told that actually the tag was wrong and it cost £15!!!! FFS, then I realised what had happened was that Triad had gone to cancer research (where the tag was from), seen the skirt was cool, then marked it up from the £2 cancer research charged for it. BEARING IN MIND I am as poor as a church mouse this really pissed me off, although I know Triad is a charity I thought this was a bit cheeky, not only are they stealing money from cancer patients, but they are trying to empty my pockets EVEN MORE. Needless to say I didn't buy the skirt (definitely wasn't worth £15) and took my business elsewhere (Age Concern). 

Models Own nail varnish in Fluro' Orange £5

And the Sunday before (please don't ask me why I'm not writing in chronological order) me and Ailbhe went to the food market and vintage fair on Brick Lane. I had some lovely dim sum AND a katsu curry, how greedy am I? There were so much really cheap vintage clothes and things, and the people on the stalls were lovely, including one lady I was very jealous of as she had a beautiful patent leather vintage Moschino belt, purchased from the stall across from her the previous weekend. I managed to grab a few bargains there as well :

Vintage  jumpsuit (I made it into a playsuit because the legs were a bit short) £10

Vintage mens shirt ( I cut out the shoulders and I'm going to stud the collar) £5

Vintage ring on the left  (I feel in love with it after it didn't fit Ailbhe and her tiny fingers, I still feel quite bad about it :S ) £6

And the nail varnish in this picture is by Models Own Beetlejuice collection in Aqua Violet

So yeah , I am poor but I think my wardrobe is better off for it. 

Still counting down the days till the student loan comes in, I got the date wrong and it's actually the 23rd wahhh! I'm going up to Newcastle next week for my friend Gabby's boyfriends house night called Nocturnal Playground, going to see those Futureboogie guys again, Lukas and Christophe AGAIN. Will be getting plenty of shopping done whilst up there, these are just a few things on my wish list :

  1. Stripy bodysuit -          £20       
  2. Cross bodysuit -          £22                  Miss Selfridge
  3. Flamingo jumper -       £19.99   
  4. Polo neck bodysuit -    £25                 River Island
  5. Wedges -]                   £60        
  6. Tartan bralet -             £12                  Newlook 
  7. Peace leggings -           £12        

I have all that to look forward to, now to get started on the revision and listening to Soul Clap too loud..... lets pray I pass the year.
