rule britannia!

1


leather jacket: primark
socks: topshop
scarf: new look
boots: new look

There's nothing like a bit of British pride! Im proud to fly the flag for British Fashion Bloggers! I don't think there is enough UK fashion blogs ones out there. I mean there is some fantastic ones out there, But all the "big" bloggers are mainly American. There is something about UK style that is so refreshing and different to other countries! I think its so diverse and creative compared to other countries. If you didnt know, I actually have dual nationality with New Zealand, As my Dads a New Zealand citizen, Therefore I've got a New Zealand Passport via birth right. It means if I wanted to I could go live over there if I wanted too! But of course I much prefer the UK!

Today I worked, as per usual. And I'm working tomorrow. Workworkwork! I really cant wait for a solid day off! I've got a ton of merchandising to do tomorrow! In other news my car passed its MOT, So the money I saved just incase it failed is all mineee! I'm going to buy some goodies from New Look (Hello staff discount!) and buy some new boots I've spied in Topshop. Its nice to have some disposable income after trying my hardest not to spend money these past weeks! Managed to slip a gym session in today as well as a cheeky McDonalds! Oh well!

  12. Lovely outfit. It is a very cool scarf. :) I feel that there are a lot of big fashion bloggers in Australia too, but I do agree there are a lot in America.
    I can request dual citizenship in the Philippines, where I was born!

  13. I completely agree, the big main ones are mostly American even though I think us Brits are more creative and imaginative with fashion. I have a white bedroom with a huge union jack I made on the wall.. so i try to fly the flag for us also

  16. I love this outfit heaps. Your scarf is super cute! And you have such lovely hair. Ah, I really like your blog. I was looking on your formspring today and I cant get over how rude and inconsiderate some people can be. Good on you for keeping your head up and letting your light still shine through all the junk! Hope you have a great rest of your week. x

  17. I am kind of the the same, I can gain a UK ancestory visa as my dad is Scottish and my mum is Australian and we live in Aus!!
    Definitely making my way over there soon.

  20. No offence to Britain but I am pretty sure if you came to the wonderful NZ and lived here you would love it!! I have a mate from the UK who after going back last year refuses to go again. She moved here when she was nine and being back there made her severly home sick for good old NZ!! I mean think about the weather, our summer is triple your length hahaha.

  24. Haha gym, then macdonalds, love it - that's exactly the kind of thing I would do!
    Oh no, now I'm thinking about macdonalds.
    I love the scarf and the boots look good too. Pretty cool that you can just hop of to NZ if you wanted to, it's such a beautiful place.
    I'm still thinking about macdonalds! Oh what have you done! x

  25. once someone told me that after a good workout you can eat whatever you like for about 30 minutes after the workout session. Sooo its not so bad that you went for McD afterwards :p nice outfit btw, as alwaysss :)

  26. You're right, there aren't too many british bloggers! Anyhow, you're my favourite:)

  27. I think Georgie is just copying your blog. The other day she posted your exact outfit, the purple primark dress and animal print headband.
    http://everythinggeorgie.blogspot.com/2010/08/love-my-cheetah-print-headband.html
    And now shes just posted victory rolls!
    http://everythinggeorgie.blogspot.com/2010/08/1940s.html
    And shes totally changed her layout to your exact style. How annoying

  28. totally agree british fashion is just that wee bit ahead of the time and much more unique and quirky than america.. def more UK big blogs needed!! think ur blog is def up there on my uk blog list :) x

    ReplyDelete
  29. Awwww, I know what you mean about there being a lack of UK fashion bloggers. It's great to read about fashion from all over but they usually feature clothes (and some make-up) that isn't as easily available over here.

    and yay, for being part New Zealand! My parents lived there for a bit, but moved back before my birth so I have no rights! ekk!

  31. I think there are some great british style blogs out there but we're kind of more modest in a way I think haha. I can't imagine us organising conferences and things, I think we have more fun though ;) maybe in a few years though, we always seem to follow the US.
