master of puppets








top: vintage (you can get them on ebay)
skirt: primark
rings: jwlry, market stall, forever 21
watch: swatch
necklace: asos*
shoes: H&M
nails: beauty uk white* and opi rainbow connection

Today has gone way too quickly for my liking! I have literally just sat down at my computer and seen it's 7pm. Absolutely crazy! The clocks changing really does mess with my head and my daily goings on! Although it is lovely having more daylight and not having to walk home in the dark come 5pm! Cant wait to start spending my evenings in the beer gardens!

A sort of summery outfit today to match the weather, I wore something similar on Saturday shopping but decided to wear my Metallica tshirt instead of  a studded black body. Had a bit of grief about saying my t-shirt was vintage even though I'm sure Master of Puppets came out way before I was born so its vintage enough for me! I bought it from a local vintage shop when I was living back at home but you can buy rawk~ tee's off ebay for about a tenner most of the time! I simply snipped the sleeves off and its now my perfect summer tee, Primark Men's tee's are good for cutting the sleeves off too for a sorta grungy look. Plus they are cheap so doesn't break the bank! I wore my new dipped hem skirt from Primark too, Which Im absolutely in love with. Im forever drawn to grey marl, but the dipped back gives it a cool floaty, sporty feeling it has. Im really loving the dipped hem look at the moment I might even get the black one when I have some more money! I didn't think it suited me initially but it's definitely a grower!

PS. Excuse my dodgy leg colour, my bed always casts a blue shadow on my legs! Trust me they were suitably orange ;)

  17. yeah Metallica \m/ crazy to think that a metallica tee can be classed as vintage, they are still going strong. xx

  20. The skirt is really pretty, didn't think it would look so good on when you see it hanging in the store!! x

  21. This is so pretty! Love your skirt, the fact that its primark makes it even better! Lovely outfit! xx

  22. i wore the black version of that skirt today, and i think it's the waist that's a bit weird?! i didn't think it sat as nicely as my other skirts like it! i want it in grey too, the hem is lovely x

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cute, I love my dipped hem skirt too! x

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lovely skirt, I'm so impressed with Primark at the moment although I have absolutely no money to spend :( I'm sure I read somewhere that 'vintage' means anything over 20 years old, and anyway if you bought it in a vintage shop I don't see why anyone should quibble with the definition!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nice Lily! Liking the skirt, am never too sure about them but this defo suits you and it still looks relaxed! xo

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gorgeous outfit! Love tops like that, looks really good teamed with the skirt! You look verrrry summery :) xo

  27. Sensing another pleather-skirt pandemic over these dip-hemmed skirts - all the ones in my local Primark (bar the size 18 ones) have been snapped up already!! :(

  28. well Master of Puppets came out in 1986 soo I would say it is pretty much vintage haha! although the top looks a lot like one I got from Urban Outfitters a year or so ago, I think? I've been thinking of cutting the sleeves off mine as well, it would make it a lot more versatile I reckon!

  38. I have this skirt in black! I find it makes me look bigger then I actually am - kinda sticks out on my hips! But I still love it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this, it's so effortlessly cool (hope that doesn't sound like a backhanded compliment!) I've got the black version of this skirt, but I might buy this one too. The black one is a bit see-through though, might have to kick it old school and get an underskirt/petticoat! Again, love this ensemble :)

  43. Definitley need to pick myself up one of those dipped hem skirts, so perfect for summer without being afraid of having your bum on show! You often wear a ring on your engagement finger which is such bad luck if you believe in those kind of things haha~ ox

  44. I really wish there was a prim ark near me in Germany or France, I would love a skirt like this so much. Oh well I'll pine for one for now. I love the top with that skirt, grunge but not overly grunge if that makes sense
