leather sleeved jacket









vest: asos
skirt: topshop
jacket: river island
boots: topshop
hat: topshop
bracelet: black tied*, claires accessories*, regal rose*
nails: essie cute as a button

I think I might be obsessed with leather (or faux leather) sleeves! This is a recent addition to my jacket collection from River Island. I tried this little beauty on a few weeks ago in Westfields and then had to ask the Internet if they thought I should buy it. Obviously the answer was a resounding yes and I swiftly went to check out. I bought it home and my two housemates ending up getting it as well. It's completely sold out online now and I have a feeling it might be sold out in store but don't hold me to it! Debuting my new collarbone piecing today as well as I feel they have healed suitably well considering they were a mess when I first had them done. I'm really happy with them and love how they have turned out! I got the first set done back in April on my Birthday but my plan was always to get two lots on each side so I went back and got the second set done earlier last month!

  4. Love the micro dermals! If I wasn't so square I'd have one too. heehee!

    I didn't think I'd like these kind of jackets but it actually looks really nice! Love the waterfall effect of the fabric at the front... and of course, that marl grey colour is always a favourite!

  44. Do you ever buy things and think... I'm unlikely to like this AT ALL within 2 years? It really gets to me sometimes how disposable the fashion industry is these days. I'd be interested in a post about your attitude to it in terms of quality/quantity wastefulness etc. Something that isn't often addressed, but with so many clothes made from non-biodegradable fabrics it could become a big issue of the future.

  69. Lily - your eyebrows!! They are so thick and dark, I understand this is a "look" and i too love groomed, filled in eyebrows but you're starting to look like Sam the Eagle from the Muppets in some of these pictures, it's just too much!

    I'm not a troll and I'm genuinely only saying this to be kind I suppose (in a weird way) in case you've gotten a bit pencil happy lately without realising x
