Dalmation Print Nails

I saw these it an 'a' or an 'o'...dalmatian..dalmation?? hmmm...nails on the Topshop Unique catwalk. Hated the clothes. Adored the nails. So with my trusty Models Own nail art pen (actually not that trusty because the hairs keep falling out) I decided to give it a go. I really like the result and brings a touch of a/w without actually having to wear chunky knits and coats.

Outfit Post - Orange Pleats

Another pleated skirt to add to my neverending collection. I'll do a post one day and show you how many I have...its actually embarrassing. I just think they're so easy to wear and they look good with everything...chunky knits, crop tops, vests..etc. I've been carrying this vintage bag everyday for about a month now and I'm showing no signs of too happens to go with everything in my wardrobe and only cost me £18. Actually my entire outfit hardly cost me anything. The skirt was £2.50 my clogs were a gift, the a. wang vest I got using my chic points on chictopia and my cardi was about £35...topshop always makes me spend more than I normally would grrr.

Outfit Post - Maxi Cardigan

I finally got my hands on a crochet maxi cardigan! Good old primark came to the rescue yet again. I've been after one of these for ages and having had returned one to topshop last year because of poor quality I was surprised to see this baby hanging by itself (sure, a size too big) that must of been bought at another branch and returned to my local one. It was meant to be. I've cut and re-ombre-d (can that be a word?) my hair...its super light at the ends, but i need to do it again because its not faded in as much as i'd like it goes from dark to blonde too quickly..does that make sense to everyone? lol. Right im off to eat sunday lunch mmmmm.

Cross Nails

I've had some time to kill tonight so I decided to paint my nails. I've had this idea in my head for a while now about doing black crosses over white nail polish so finally today I went out and bought Models Own Nail Art Pen in black and 17 Lasting Fix in Mini Skirt....not quite sure why they'd name a white nail polish mini skirt! I did this totally free hand so the crosses are by no means perfect and I havn't been bothered to clear up the mistakes round the edge yet...but I really really like it. I'd probably use/make stencils next time because sadly im a bit of a perfectionist and the wobbly lines anger my ocd lol...whaddya think??

Outfit Post - Fringed

fringe jacket; Topshop

I bought this jacket from toppers yesterday on sale for £18 down from £50. I looooove it! It's everything I adore combined...fringe, crochet, cut-out details and I had to wear it immediately..ignoring the fact it was incredibly warm that day...totally worth it though :) I also bought the skirt the same day from a charity shop for £ too includes another of my loves...pleats! However, it is incredibly see-though and only realised this when seeing my reflection in a shop window...ah well, totally worth it too :D
