paisley









dress: river island
cardigan: topshop
necklace: river island*
bracelet: black tied*
shoes: converse

YAYYY. What I love about going shopping is that I actually have some new clothes to show you! It's been a long time since I've really bought new stuff so I did go a little crazy yesterday buying new bits and bobs! I loved the print on this dress as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. It's the usual a crazy oversized sack style dress that really does nothing for me that I seem to love! The pattern is so me as well, I have my eye on the blazer version too which I think is SO beautiful! I picked this cardigan up last night as well. Mainly because I liked the texture of it and the fact it's not totally black, It sort of gives it a nice cosy feel.

Tonight Im just maxxing and relaxing and tomorrow I'm going to a Jessie J gig with Vitamin Water. Not a Jessie J Fan, but I need my Vitamin Water fix! Plus my housemates coming along too so it should be good fun! Which reminds me Fashion week isn't all that far off now! My love hate relationship with LFW is well documented, and Im actually not sure if Im going to go this year or not. It's one of those amazing experiences but Im always left feel out of place and a little irrelevant? Oh well!

PS. SOrry my legs are so blue, My lighting is shocking bad at the moment, but we had a letter from the council saying our bush was too big (rofl) and it needs to be trimmed! So I think it's getting done tomorrow!

  11. I like the twist that RI have done with this paisley number- Not the typical look for RI so I'm v.impressed! I expected to see this was from Topshop, so I'm pleasently surprised.
    I have noticed you enjoy your paisley print, check out the new dress that H&M have brought out, it was sold out in a few stores, but they may have brought more out since I last checked. It's more of a slim fit dress but is uber cute :)

  50. The pattern on your dress is lovely. It would also look good as a top. I always feel intimidated when I go to London Fashion Week as there are so many big people there and I equally feel out of place! I hope you have fun at the Jessie J gig!
