mr monopoly










new look metallic jumper
topshop fur collared coat
office boots*
black tied bracelets*
zara rose gold bag

I went along to some press days today with Victoria and grabbed her for a few moments to take some outdoorsy outfit photos. I really like how they came out, I sometimes wish I just had someone to take them for me as I just love the vibe so much more! I didn't really dress up today as I got up and ready in about 15 minutes. Threw on a metallic jumper, a hat and my trusty ASOIAF inspired coat and ran (got the tube) into Central London! Im absolutely obsessed with this American Apparel dress I bought at the weekend. It was super pricey at a ridiculously eye watering £39 but I have shamelessly worn it many many times since then. I could never get away with wearing it as a dress but it makes the perfect skater skirt for layering up.

I made a video and have done a full post on the River Island press day which you can see above (or on my Youtube Channel)and then the post over on ETCLLYMLRS.

  36. That coat rocks the house, me want-y.
    Admittedly a weird point to fixate on buuut: what denier tights are those? me want-y too. I need a change from 100 denier.
