shirt: vintage
cardigan: primark
playsuit: H&M
rings: primark


I've been eyeing up one of those Pussybow neck blouses that we currently have in stock in New Look. The sheerness gets me though, I tend to avoid sheer things because I never know really what to wear underneath things! As much as I'd love the confidence to just wear a bralet or something under it I just cant! I just threw on this H&M playsuit that I tend to wear for layering all the time! I need some black shorts, I really like these twill ones again from New Look (Working there exposes you to so all of the nice pieces!) But I tried them on the other day and they didnt look right, I think I want some really baggy droopy kinda puffy looking ones. Im thinking really old fashioned tudor stylee puffy. Does anyone get what I mean or am I just dreaming about something unobtainable?

I'm probably the only blogger in the UK who hasn't indulged in the Models Own 50% off sale (The codes FACEBOOK50), Despite actually saying I wanted stuff from there. I've got till midnight to decide which shades I want/need. Someone enable me!

Todays my day off "YAYYY"! So I've done nothing what so ever. Although drinking lots of tea, stopping people faking me on teenspot, replying to emails and online shopping! I'm definitely going to the gym at some point today probably right after I post this actually! I haven't been working out half as much as Id like to be! I might lighten my ends of my hair again tonight if I can be bothered to run to town before the shops close! They are quite blonde, but I'm wanting more of a Drew Barrymore fade compared to a lighter one like I currently have!

Oh, And a note, I've had some issues with blog "copying" recently. I really don't care if you do copy my clothes or my style, if you copy & paste my content or ideas then that's another story! well with my ideas, you can use them, as long as you credit! Feel free to use some of my blog features ideas but just say y'know! Credit where credits due! I emailed one of them and their response was totally rude and defensive, and I was honestly a little pissed off. On one hand I think yeah being inspired by someones outfit, yeah cool. Hey,I am all the time. But I always try and put my own stamp on it! Anyway the moral of this story is, Try and make things your own! well even if you are going to copy, how about just saying on this was inspired/borrowed from Lily @ LLYMLRS, rather than go through people calling you out?

  1. Is the cardigan still in stores? I'm going primark tomorrow and if it is I am sooo buying it :D lovely look.

  2. i think it might be in the sale now, but they have a polka dot one similar!

  3. I got a few polishes from the models own sale thing, and 'deep purple' is by far the best! In different lights it can look purple, green and grey/black, it's pretty unique and awesome!

    ps that teenspot thing is ridiculous!

  4. You inspired me to ombre my own hair today! Well, I had a little help from my hairdresser sister but I love the effect! Will definitely be going a bit lighter next time though. Thanks LLYMLRS :D

  5. One of my faaaavourite blogs!

    I have a folder of 'outift inspiration' and you feature in it many times but this is one of my favourite outfits! It's nice and smart but casual too.

    Totally agree about the copying thing... copying is flattering but what's wrong with telling people who you copied from?

  6. I think that this is my favourite out of all the outfits I have seen you in, and possibly of all the outfits I have seen in general of late. That blouse is delicious and I'm extremely disappointed that its vintage (so I cant pop out and buy one). I am loving ladylike blouses right now and your wearing the look well. X

    And who on earth would think that it's a good idea to literally copy and paste someone else's blog to pass off as there own? Thats not even devious, it's just plain thick.

  7. My hair is going to take a while to be ombre'd. My roots are a darker blonde to the lengths/ends. About 2 inches of my roots are showing at the moment. I'm just going to let it grow without colouring it.
    I'm a different Leanne to the one above. I'm going to start using my nickname which is Lea. I haven't seen many of them.

  10. Love the outfit! Your hair looks so good, i really wanna ombre mine but it's a bit of a weird colour atm so i don't think it would look right.

    Cannot believe that teenspot thing..that's really dodgy..it could be a old man pretending to be you for all we know...scary stuff :S

  11. That's so weird, I was about to buy one of these blouses on the way home from work tonight! They have some really lovely ones in Tesco of all places (: The teenspot thing is so strange! The copier is pretty much leading a double life! :| x

  13. Lily,
    You look wonderful as always. I absolutely adore this shirt!! As for the fake Lily on teenspot...wow how did you even handle that? I would have been SO PISSED. And blog copying? That's ridiculous but I feel sorry for people who lack their own creativity.

  16. I'm always wary of those types of blouses because they can look dated, but you make it really modern! Love the print on the cardigan too. :)

    Love Sanchia xxx

  20. that girl on teenspot is so so weird... why on earth would someone do that? i ordered some stuff from models own, really hopes it'd be here today but looks like it'll be tomorrow! the grass green is the one i'm most excited for, i think green is my colour for the autumn.

  27. I've never understood people who impersonate others, who blatantly steal content from another person. They never ever get away with it. Saying that, you inspired a little bit of my outfit for today and I mentioned you... http://www.clearyourheart.net/2010/08/outfit-post-wheres-robin.html

    The Models Own discount is incredible. I got purple passion and it's glorious.

  28. I've been such a fan of your blog for ages Lily, but i've never commented enough on your entries!

    I'm sorry you have to deal with rude copiers.. you're just such an inspiration to people I guess! You've inspired me to try blogging more!

    I'm also in love with the cardigan you have on here!

  31. Hiya,

    I'm a mod on Teenspot. I just happened to come across your blog last week during a google search and realized we probably had a faker after your formspring response. Just wanted to let you know the user has been banned and the photos have been removed. :)

    Take care.

  32. I took the pictures of Drew into my stylist just the other week. I'm growing highlights out though, so I am going to have to bide my time until the root section is dark/grown out enough and, on the other end, enough dye has washed out of the ends. I love her hair, though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. well said. i completely agree. also, loooove the cardie.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Good luck with the hair - I am totally loving drew barrymore's style at the moment!

    And I love that pussy-boy. I have some vintage silk and lace camisoles and slips that I wear under sheer things and that works really well - Still looks kinda underwear-y but without being as full on as just a bra (I'm not so brave either!)

    Lots of love Christina x

  36. I'm seriously considering having my hair done like Drew on Monday. I like having blonde through my hair but I'm a terrible one for not getting my roots done so this style seems ideal for a lazy lardarse like my lovely self :P

    I was really chuffed with the Models Own sale. Like you, I didn't order until late in the evening on the last night, but I got two eyeshadows, three nail polishes and a macara for £15, inc p&p. Not too shabby. Plus the last time I ordered I got a free eye pencil which I'm actually rather impressed with. Not bad for the price at all.

  37. Perfect!

    Loving every single part of that outfit, and the way it all fits so effortlessly.

  40. I read this and I just thought, "What the heck is a teenspot?" That whole false identity thing is pretty weird. I'm not going to check it out, but it's creepy to think that someone's been trolling completely through your blog to impersonate you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love that little cardigan! Really cute blog here :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Just stumbled upon your blog today! I love your syle, and you're also really really pretty :) will be following from now on!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love your outfit!! Great cardigan and top!!
    I try to avoid sheer tops too for the same reason.
    I like Drew Barrymore's hair too. That would look good!
    Sorry about people copying you! That would make me mad too!

    Love me...Love me not

  44. I saw this cardie in Penny's (primark) and wanted it so bad but had just spent my money on shoes. You've styled it really well. I love this outfit :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Can I just say that I am in love with your hair!

  48. I have constant issues with my content being stolen. It's going to be the topic of my next Blog Issue post. Unlike you, I'm not quite so understanding!

    How creepy that the captcha code for this comment is 'cloan'?!! :) x

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love that cute blouse, you have layered it well! Can't believe people would blatently copy content from your blog like that! Being inspired by someone and copying them are 2 very different things!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ok fair enough people shouldn't copy the content of your blog if you are the first person to have that particular type of post but as for copying your outfits I have to say that the reason I love your blog is because you have all the same clothes ad me and wear them the way I do. The fact is there isn't anything incredibly different or unique anout how you put outfits together. You dress the way I and lots of other girls dress and you buy your clothes from the same places most people do. And none of that is a bad thing or a criticism of you. That's what I LOVE! But you can't really say people are copying your outfits because of those reasons ya know? I don't mean any of this in a bad way because I do really like your blog I just wanted to say that because I don't want other bloggers to feel they can't wear their clothes the way they normally would just because you got there first you know? Anyway sorry for the very long comment. I do love your blog lol and don't ever change! Oh and I don't have a blog in case you were thinking that's why I'm saying all this lol

  51. I LOVE the all dress! Outfit is cool! Nice post Lullaby keeps more article about fashion trend, nice job!
