moving pictures





top: primark
skirt: romwe
necklace: forever 21
nails: models own top turquoise

Today I wore this, The tee is a Primark mens in extra small, it was only like £2 or something ridiculously cheap. I much prefer the mens basic tshirts than the womens ones. I find the womens ones really weird, stretchy and generally unflattering! Also wearing that Romwe skirt I've been wearing alot recently, its one of those really classic versatile pieces that goes with practically everything. I really need to take another trip to Forever 21 to get some more necklaces and jewellery. I've been eyeing stuff up on their website but I've heard a few horror stories about ordering online from there so I'm a bit reluctant! I think the London store is opening up soon for anyone who lives there though!

Remember to follow my new blog for more bits and bobs!

  5. So, i post this comment with the risk of being on the verge of sounding stalker-ish and crazy.. sounds promising. I promise, i'm not - that's what they all say. Anyway, if your immeciable style and looks weren't enough to make me want to marry you already, without being paired with your personality, then the title of this post is. Please tell me this is rush, and not just being hoping someone else knows who they are?
    As always, you look wonderful!

  10. Yeah I was on Oxford St at the weekend and all the billboards are up outside so F21 looks like it's finally coming to us Londoners and it's about time too ;) Love everything you're wearing as always Lily - I don't understand how you can make a baggy grey tee look so good!

  14. what can I say, you must really love this skirt. :) And that's good because it looks great on you. :)

  15. wow I love that nail varnish I was looking at it yesterday on the net and didn't know whether to get it or not, but you've swayed me!

    I always think to look in the mens section in Primark but once I get in there its so hectic that I always forget and want to escape ASAP. But the tee does look nice, u should try cutting the sleeves though or rolling them up, think it would look better.

    Love Alex

  21. love the mini layout change. and that first picture is divine! Agree about the woman tops-so tight and show your bra. I love the oversized fit of yours, so much more chic. xxx

  22. you're right, primark's womens t-shirts are horrible - so stretchy and go baggy easily. I love wearing scott's topman jersey t-shirts to sleep in, they actually feel nicer the more worn they are. need to get myself to the primark men's section I think!

    ReplyDelete
  23. about time they opened another f21 in the uk! the only one's in birmingham right? manchester needs one

    i bought a mens primark tee today, i have loaddds but my mum always puts them in my brothers wardrobe thinking theyre his! haha. i bought a white one to paint today with black paint. i made a knock of BOY london one before ahah was amzing

  33. Forever 21 is also coming to Bluewater! Haven't actually bought anything from there but will certainly investigate when it opens!

    I really need a versatile skirt like this, but for some reason I avoid buying basics and things that I actually need when I go shopping!

  37. You've heard bad things about ordering online from Forever21? I've been ordering there for...about two years, I think, and I've never had any issues or problems with the products!

    Great photos, great post!

    p.s. loving your bits & bobs blog :)

  41. the only thing about mens shirts is the sleeves can be a little long in my opinion. x

  43. Perfect skirt! I'm also the same way with basics, women's are always such a strange fit!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the new blog look! The header looks fantastic. I can never figure out how to format the text without just using the blogger template; still got a lot to learn! I get all my jewelry from Forever21, they have great stuff - a bit overwhelming when you're in the store though! Gorgeous as always, miss Lily!
