boots: topshop

Quick post before I rush out to go shopping at Westfields to pickup a few things including my giveaway prize. Super late I know but today has literally flown past and I've hardly finished anything I need to do! I might stop off for a cheeky YO! Sushi as well while Im there… because it would be rude not to! Plus I've been craving it for days! I didn't think I could top the outfit from the other day with the all Topshop outfit, but I've outdone myself today! I was looking through my chest of drawers and found this top that I hadn't worn for ages! It has one of the most unique looking collars I've seen as it has two individual layers. I don't think Topshop sell this anymore though so Im sorry if you can't find it! Also the boots (Topshop Allergera's) and the jumper are both very old too so I doubt you can get hold of them either! I always feel so guilty wearing old things as Im always asked about them! I need to start doing some sort of symbol for old clothing! As well as something to do with size of the clothes I buy as Im forever asked about the size of clothing I buy! Would you be interested in that?

Anyway, back tomorrow for Birthday Bloggy celebrations! I should really plan what Im going to post about too! Eep!

  20. Definitely the size thing would be handy! Sometimes you make things look so different on you than they do in the shops because of what size you have bought! Love the outfit hun

    1. i might, but I've seen people critizied for "bragging" about their size, i generally wear 8 or a 10, and if i do wear something different i normally mention it!

  22. I love unique collars, it is hard to find any cute ones as there aren't many on the high street. Can't wait for Winter, as I think collars will be big again on the high street.

  28. The size idea is fab. I alway see things on your blog but rarely have the guts to be like "hoi you what size you wearing" feels a bit rude ha x

    1. yeah, its just awkward as some people see it as "bragging" about what size i am. im size 8 or 10 most of the time and if i do buy something a different size i generally say!

  37. I think it'd be a good idea to do some sort of symbol or code for sizing and old clothes. I was just thinking "oh I want that jumper" and then you said it was old! I also think the sizing one helps too. Maybe give it a try out? Love the outfit! I like all black sometimes, it looks clean and I think your accessories are the main focus here anyways like the collar and the jewels on the jumper [: love it! (massive comment...sorry!) xx
