London living

What a lovely weekend. We went for a wander around the posh shops and houses near Sloane Square yesterday, had a yummy brunch and then after a look round Harrods, wine on the rooftop terrace there. Not something we can make a habit of but great for a treat! Then back for tequila and to watch As Good As It Gets - which is a brilliant film that I'd never seen before. Still not sure where I stand on Jack Nicholson - would I??

Then a lazy Sunday, full English, a walk to the shops and later on we're having steak for dinner. Yum!

Oh yes, and on Friday I went to an animal-themed fancy dress party as a rabbit. A very basic costume with a white dress, old ears and a gorgeous vintage white fluffy capelet from a charity shop - only £2 down from £15!

A random guy asked to take a picture of me as I was walking home - in a drunken, oh yes I'm dressed as a giant rabbit way I obliged!

Some recent wears...

With my slightly odd hair! The leopard print skirt again with a vest that came with a shirt from Debenhams.

And the day I dyed my hair to cover up the greys before I went to uni (a girl there actually said to me "it's like so inspirational that older people like you are going back to uni, you should be proud". Yeah thanks grasshopper, I'm only 26!!).

Wearing an old H&M dress and old Primark heels.

Well, here we go with another week....

Dress please

Hi! It's me. It's been a while hey? Since the last time I posted I've been getting used to London living, travelling in Thailand and Cambodia for a month, starting uni and fruitlessly searching for a job.

Travelling was amazing. I was with my boyfriend for a week, on my own for a week then with my sisters for two weeks. I'll have to do a seperate post with some pictures soon because if I start describing it this will be waaaaaay too long for a return post!

I'm also going to resist the temptation to post all the outfit pictures I've taken in the last two/three months at once - I have been keeping up with that at least, although probably more out of vanity that I look nice and want to record it than anything else!

Uni has been hard and intense and I'm only on week three (I'm doing Psychology for those interested). In fact I'm doing this post instead of my required reading so I'm really getting into the swing of things! I haven't gone full-blown vintage at uni yet but I can see that I dress differently to the other students - I wonder if it's because they're younger, or maybe as I've noticed London dressing seems to be cool and chic rather than a bit crazy like Brighton.

Anyway, I'm going to try and do a few smaller posts more often with some good wears of mine.

I'm going to start with the least recent. It's funny looking back at my hair now, you'll notice soon that I've dyed it and it looks odd from before - brown fringe and gingery hair!

First up, me wearing a gorgeous leopard print skirt that I bought from Red Bows Vintage, a bunny tshirt from Camden market and a man's leather jacket from a charity shop (mostly for my boyfriend but for me too, although I'm desperate for my own!).

Next up (and this makes me realise these are from when it was "sunny": a very casual outfit I wore on my way to go for a swim. An H&M cardi and a Red Herring dress from a charity shop.

Now for the more glam pictures. A red maxi dress from Forever 21, sadly now with so many holes I can't wear it anywhere except the shops and at home, and an absolutely gorgeous kimono jacket thingy from TKMaxx.

And lastly a dress that I've only started to wear recently although I've had it for a while. It's from Dorothy Perkins.

That's it for now, I've been really restrained but that just means lots more to come!

It's nice to be back :)
