Goodbye England till next year's snow

Button up shirt - charity shop, Disco Pants - American Apparel, Chelsea boots - Doc Martens
Yes, I am a crazy lady and I took all these pictures whilst standing in the snow. Surprisingly  it wasn't as cold as I imagined, but it certainly was not a pleasant experience. However, I feel like I owe it to you guys since I've not posted in so long. I've done 4/5 of my AS module exams now so hopefully I will have more time but I highly doubt it so I'm not going to make any promises!

This shirt is possibly one of the best items I have ever thrifted. I should've taken a close up, but it's got burnt orange velvet and shiny black autumn leaves on a shirt black chiffon with a black fringed edge. It's really hard to describe, but is all my favourite textures and materials combined into one shirt. I call it my cowboy top but it's sort of annoying to wear since the fringed bits always get hooked or attached to everything. I love it nonetheless.

And then there are my disco pants! Yes, I finally have the much coverted and highly hyped American Apparel disco pants. They are everything that everyone says they are and I love them so much! My sister bought them for me for Christmas and I am so glad I have them in my possession. Anyone wanting a review of them since they are quite pricey but in my eye, completely worth it!

Have fun and stay safe in the snow,

New Year Lookbook: Tartan & Fur

Fur coat: M&S, tartan dress: New Look, headband - Accessorise
Muddy flatforms: Office
I know, it's been a while. School work and everything else has gotten ontop of me, so consequently, blogging has sunk pretty low down on my priority list. The British weather is pretty dire in the winter, crippling my blog productivity since it's always freezing cold outside and dark before I leave in the mornings as well as before I come home in the evening. But those are not the only reasons why I have refrained from blogging since November (craziness) - I have been unhappy with the quality of all my last blog posts and being the perfectionist I am, it has made me unwilling to post any more.

However, now it's a new year and that means time for changes. One thing that really bugged me was the format of all my posts - the mirrored outfit posts were fun to begin with, but they have quickly lost their novelty. I have some fantastic equipment in my disposal and it's time that I started utilising it to make my photography a bit more interesting. Today was such a beautiful day for once and since it is a public holiday, I decided to creep into the secondary school next to where I live to take some pictures outside the confines of my garden. My plan was almost over before it began as I ran into a caretaker but I just told him that I was taking pictures for a "school project" and he let me carry on.

I go through phases of loving different patterns - lastly it was paisley print, but now tartan is definitely my new obsession. The more tartan the better. This dress is actually from the Generation 9-14 range in New Look and it's age 12-13 which is absolutely ridiculous as it's pretty much a size 8 dress. I've worn it so much throughout the Christmas season. Next I am searching for a tartan suit jacket and skirt combo for sixth form, much like Cher's in Clueless.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post. I cannot guarantee a regular schedule of posts, since I have a total of 5 AS modules within the next 3 weeks. However, I will try to make the ones I put out as good as possible.

Thanks for sticking around.
Hope you have had a fantastic Christmas holiday and New Year.

P.S. I have no idea what a "Lookbook" is, but rhymes are cool.
P.P.S. I've missed my 1 year blog-iversary. I really am a terrible blogger.
P.P.P.S. Post coming up tomorrow on my second blog about New Year's resolutions.
