jumper: topshop
skirt: primark (old/sold out)
necklace: river island*
nails: NYC & essie (see this post)
lips: MAC please me (review here)

I can't say this jumper is something I'd usually buy, even though in reality it does look like something I should like. I'm not so keen of studs on clothes, I don't know why but they seem to really turn me off! I especially dislike studded shorts for some reason! However I saw this jumper on the Topshop website and I thought "meh, add to bag". When it turned up and I slipped it on I knew it would be the one for me. I love the slouchy oversized fit and the material has a very sport kinda feel to it (I'm not good at explaining things!) but it sort of feels like a mixture of joggers and a jumper I used to wear to school! There are studs on the shoulders which I think add to the slouchiness off the item as they are quite heavy and just make it feel a bit more draped! I thought I'd give you a little break between the mountain of disco pants outfits I have planned for the next few weeks and wear my much coveted pleather primark skirt! I always seem go through obsessions of different items, for example faux fur, my primark skirt, my zara high waisted skirt, pink clothes etcetc!

Today I've been messing around with a DIY I've been wanting to do for a while as well as working my way through my dreaded washing pile at least we have good weather so I can dry it! Apparently I've heard its meant to be really hot (for England) tomorrow so fingers crossed. I also sent off all the Filofax's that were won during my Filofax giveaway so those who won should keep a look out for their post man! I'll be tackling my ebay items tomorrow trying to get them all sent out! I can't wait for all the dirty looks from people at the post office! eek!

  37. I love skull prints! I just bought a skull covered blouse, very similar to the Alexander McQueen skull prints on the scarves. I can't wait to wear it.
    hopefully you get some nice, hot weather sent your way. Here in Canada it's boiling hot! Can't complain.

  45. I had seen the bralet version of this. Absolutely loved the print, but really hated it as it's really small and flimsy so this might be it for me!
