you really got me



top: asos (I got a size 8)
skirt: H&M
hat: H&M
ring: primark
tights: primark
necklace: zara taylor

I hate having such a moody photo face! I just find it so hard to smile and pose at the same time! I just end up with a solemn crabby bitchy looking face! I promise I smile IRL! I love these big long sleeved oversized tops that all the shops are doing at the moment! I have one from Topshop, Peacocks and this Asos one has now added to the collection. They are nice and flattering and great to layer over things, I'm wearing a Topshop bodysuit under mine to keep me warm! Its got so cold over the past week, and seeing as I still dont have a winter coat I'm doing anything to keep warm! I haven't worn polka dot tights in forever either, I just thought they would add a little something extra to my outfit! And the hat... Well I loved it when I got it but struggle to make it work with some outfits! Its a great little hat but sometimes it just makes me look weird ya know... When I tried it on with a long Mac my friend said I looked like a pedophile!

Skipped university today to start doing research on my dissertation, I haven't even decided what Im going to do it about yet. I've been looking for relevant and researchable topics. My intial idea was to do it on internet memes and image macros and how things like that have spread all around the internet. But I think trying to explain lol cats to my Cultural Studies tutor would result in a face palm! I've got to the point where I'm thinking about doing it on the infamous Gap logo and other examples of when re-branding goes wrong! Its also the last week of my Love/Hate project so Im trying to finalize all my artwork and typography for that, it looks amazing and with all your imput it really helped me along with the concept!

If you haven't seen my latest Youtube video, you can watch it here!

  6. i LOVE the hat but i know what you mean about trying to pull it off. i have a tribly that i love but feel like a total idiot when i have it on. i've even had people tell me so, and yet others seem to wear them with ease?

    goes well with this outfit.
    me likey.

  7. laughing at the paedophile comment!

    for branding going wrong, you could look at the armani black code aftershave being pulled for racist messages or something. though that's not re-branding, that's the original branding..

  23. How is it possible that I either own or have been looking at everything you wear? It looks lovely on, you've confirmed my want! Totally get what you mean about posing as well, I have to just take one or two photos or I get annoyed with the faces I'm pulling! I'd never think of wearing a hat but you pull it off so well!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really love the color of the shirt. The color is so much like autumn. :-)

  25. I never think you look moody lovely! Just focused and not giving an inane grin, which is fine;)
    Lovely top and hat combo. The gap logo is a cool idea for your project too, as there is so much on the internet about it already - there's a really good article in marketing magazine this week too if you need more inspiration! x

  26. That hat really suits you and that colour, loves it in the dress you had aswell. Good luck with your project, can't wait to see it xx

  30. You look lovely as always! Really like the combo of the baggy top with the skirt. I always pull the oddest faces in photos, it's hard not to!!

    Good luck with your dissertation!! Mine was in creative writing, I did it on ghost stories. :)

  34. I love these kind of shapeless tops, although I don't wear them on frumpy days because, well, I feel more frumpy!

  35. I really like these slouchy-but-still-fitted tops! I didn't know they had them in Peacocks, but I'm definitely going to have a look in there, £10 is much better than the Topshop ones! Which admittedly, I did still buy aha (: Excited to see how your Uni project turns out! xx

  36. just watched your video - lolling @ "this isn't a recommendation, this is a bad review"

    i think what you want is a single barrel curler! I have one and it's brilliant - (I'm from Aus but i'm sure you'd be able to get them in the UK).

    I curled my hair with it in my second last post, on chelseaaa.com so have a squiz!

  43. Hey Lily! Love your blog! :) I was just wondering how do you tie your scarves on your head? Can you do a tutorial for that if you don't mind? :) I would love to try it out but I just don't know how. Haha. :) Thanks! :D

  50. I'm going through that uni dissertation anxiety at the moment too.. though it sounds like you have a direction of sorts? And of course from the help of everyone on here...my you've generated quite a fan base! jazzy ♥

  51. Great outfit! The spotted tights def give the outfit just a little extra.

    I love both idea's for your dissertation. I think the second topic sounds really interesting and there is a lot to discuss and analyze on branding gone wrong. I probably just find it really interesting because I'm studying marketing and media. haha. Hope it goes well for you! :D x x
