hunting for witches







top: new look (mines size 18)*
necklace: topshop
coat: topshop
shoes: asos*
bag: ebay (black medium)
nails: models own hedonist*

Today I wore what I refer to as "my Disco Pants", the American Apparel Shiny Nylon Tricot Leggings. I've tried the "blogging famous" AA Disco Pants, but after the shock of not being able to squeeze into a pair initially ( I subsequently found out I can fit into, I just shouldn't eat out with KateEmma so much). They aren't as tight, or as structured as the "proper ones" and are just opaque high shine leggings rather than trousers. But I much prefer these to the Disco Pants on me, much more flattering, not as tight and not nearly as long! I literally had half the trousers bunched up at my ankle when I tried them on! Plus they are £40 less than Disco Pants, which may still be expensive to some people but to me thats much cheaper! I normally wear the American Apparel Spandex Leggings, which I highly recommend too!

Today I've literally been so cold I've been sitting in my Game of Thrones coat all day! Probably didn't help that I was hardly wearing any other clothes apart from a vest and leggings but w/e! Im currently blogging from my bed under a duvet and a blanket with as minimal amount of flesh showing as possible! Cant believe a few days ago I wasn't even wearing tights! Excuse my absolutely miserable expression in todays photos, Im not even sad at the moment, I just looked like I was about to cry in almost every photo I took! Trust me these were the best of the bunch!

    Your post title has just reminded me that I need to go and listen to Bloc Party - it's been a while!

  13. I tried that vest on in my actual size but it looked so odd - peaking out near the armpits where my boobs are, it looks so much better as a bigger size, does your bra show though!?

    Also, is that bag a large? I'm still umming and ahhing between large or medium! x

    1. I wore one of those body suit things under neath it so you couldn't see my bra! Yup its a medium ;)

  35. love this top, it's really cool. and that's a great tip about disco pants/shiny leggings - disco pants really are insanely expensive and i'm much too scared to try them on for fear i won't get them over my gigantic backside! xx

    Replies
    1. that was my problem! i started pulling them up and was like OH GOD THEY ARENT GOING TO FIT! but thankfully on the second time i tried they did fit! but they are ridiculously overpriced! i mean £70 for glorified leggings is terrible! i think these are reasonable price for good quality leggings though!

  36. I was going to buy that top but it looked so small in my size. I love the outfit choice today, and I want that necklace!!!

  37. You were just giving us "fierce" :)
    I am constantly buying stuff in the "wrong" size. Tbh, I'm not wrong, the shops are. Obviously.
    It would be mine

    1. haha yeah! intense looking ;) I never really look at sizes when I shop, i know what looks like will fit me so I get things that look right! i think size is just a number as I wear between a 8 and a 14 sometimes! even up to a 18 as per this post!

  48. So pretty, I love your hair in these photos! I've had a pair of these AA leggings for years and have absolutely worn them to death, well worth the money but probably need to invest in some more! Love your top, wasn't expecting new look and loving models own hedonist at the moment as well, just want the sun to come back to match!

    1. i love american apparel leggings, i think they are so worth the money as ones i get from topshop or H&M always go funny at the knees or ankles or split at the crotch! I've never had a issue with any of the american apparel ones i've tried!
