Camping in York

August 31, 2008












Beach Outfit

August 27, 2008

Well Guiwenneth and I, and several other friends, have spent the last weekend in a tent in a field in the middle of nowhere, York. It was a fab weekend and photos will follow soon, but now I’m thinking about the holiday I’m taking in 2 weeks to Majorca. I’m super excited because I’ve not been on a proper beach holiday in years. Of course, I am spending a silly amount of time planning my wardrobe so that everything is co-ordinated and goes with everything else. I am sharing a suitcase with the boy, so I have to try and pack light.

In a perfect world, my suitcase would contain the following.

The dress is by a brand called Mina, I followed the link to their website when I was creating the set, and I like what I see! The fact that celebrities are wearing their dresses does not interest me, but the cute clothes, and the reasonable prices do! I like the following items.







Etsy Love – Teonova

August 22, 2008

Etsy store Teonova sells leather masks, collars, cuffs and crowns. I am rather drawn to her cuffs with antique images on them. I especially like the one with the porpoise skeleton on, it’s slightly dark and gothic feel suits my style, and next seasons fashions, perfectly!





Black Lace Tights (again)

August 21, 2008

Yes, I’m obsessed. But I just ordered my very own pair of black lace tights! I got the Pamela Mann version (as seen in Elle!) from Tights Please because they do free delivery. They are on back order until 4th September, I think that everyone must be buying them! £6.99 isn’t a huge amount of money, but it’s more than I usually pay for tights, I’m quite happy with Marks and Spencer’s opaques. I have been lusting after them for weeks now though, so I think I can forgive myself the expense just this once! I can’t wait to get them now, I just hope I don’t ladder them the first time I wear them.

What she said.

I totally agree with Queen Lazy’s views on the up coming trends for Autumn. I can’t wait. I think I will be able to re-invent my lovely tartan mini.

Anyway, I don’t usually shop in Warehouse, but I went by the other day and just stared at the clothes in the window, I couldn’t seem to walk past!

Here’s my very hap-hazzard wish list. There are various themes there though, I’ve noticed!!

Sunday Outfit

August 19, 2008

Rubbish photos again, I know. I was trying out my new Sanyo digital camera. It’s a decent camera, but doesn’t have as wide a field as my other camera, so I had to resort to snapping myself in the mirror. Do they come out too dark on anyone’s screen? It looked ok on mine at home, but it’s a bit dark on my work monitor.

Anyway, how good would this look with black lace tights!



Top – H&M
Skirt- H&M
Short tights – La Redoute


Brighton road trip

August 18, 2008

Dressed for summer, with jumper and legwarmers as back up! I really wasn’t this miserable.

Lookin’ a bit chav. Isn’t it.

Sunnies, River Island; Vest, Topshop; Skirt, H&M; Legwarmers, M&S; Trainers, Converse (they have cats inside. So cute.)

In true English Summer style, it was really cold and I ended up borrowing my friend’s fleece and wool gloves!
