Lust After: Topshops new A/W collection!

In leather, new arrival, studded, topshop on June 30, 2010 at 7:49 am
O.K
so we all know I love a bit of topshop
and over the last few days I’ve seen a couple of posts including pictures of their new collection
and I was in love!
So as not to bore you with a repeat post of all the new piccies
I have decided to pic out my faves
and rave to you about what I like so much about it!
Capiche??
yum yum
what a combo!
I’m a huge fan of leather,
bags, boots, jackets etc!
So I’m tres excited about military boots still being around
especially combined witth a leather jacket,
underwear as outerwear dress
and AMAZING studded leather hat!
Did I mention this hat is amazing,
I seriously LOVE it!
I dunno how expensive its going to be
 but if its not ridiculous,
Im gonna get it!
O.K 3 things I like about this image!
1. Hat with ears I love hats with ears,
I own a few so I cant wait to get them out again!
2. Chunky knitted scarves, I had to get one hand knitted last year 
because I couldnt find one chunky enough,
so hopefully there will be more around this year
3. Leopard print (fake) fur coat! I have one, and I love mine
lots and lots and lots
Yummers,
victorian boots,
victorian dress
and a crazy studded jacket!
yes please!
Item wise,
these are a few that stood out to me!
This coat is amaze
I assume its fake,
but i like that it looks kinda real
with the different hues and whatnot!
I think this is the jacket from the other pic,
I love studds,
and leather jackets
so any combo of the two is great,
especially when its a leather denim look gilet!
I have wanted to make one of these ripped t-shirts for so long
but apparently its a real pain in the arse,
and tres time consuming
so topshop have done it for us!
Yay
Oh Wow
Studded cardigan waistcoat
words cannot describe,
wonder if it will be heavy??
Military Cape
I really wanted a cape last year but didnt get one,
There was a duffle cape on ASOS but I didnt get it cos it never went in the sale!
Cheapskate!
So yeah I think thats on my list this year!
Hope you enjoyed,
let me know what you guys think of it!!

Good Morning!

In fashion, visual sweets on June 28, 2010 at 9:35 am
Good morning lovely readers
I was just sat here, waiting for a Topshop parcel that should hopefully arrive today
and I got thinking
I spent loads of money on clothes bags etc,
but what’s the point?
It doesnt make me any better as a person
 and there are much more sensible things I could do with my money
but then I decided,
I like surrounding myself in pretty things!
This is the only time I’m going to have where I have a lot more money coming in 
than going out on bills etc,
so why not spend it while I can
before I get a mortgage and kids
everyone goes on about how much I shop
but I shop within my means
I have no debt (except sudent)
and I’m a complete bargain hunter!
I do own some expensive items,
but they are always reduced in some way
and can be kept forever!
So Im going to keep on shopping
ūüôā
oh and here are some beautiful piccies Ive been hoarding!

Damn You Home Sense!

In interior design, kitsch, lips, retro on June 16, 2010 at 12:28 pm
So actually I’ve been really good at saving my money recently
Until yesterday that is
When I went to HomeSense!
Where I spent £120 !
oops
I bought a double Cath Kidston bed cover for £29.99
which is really good value considering they are normally £60 or something!
 I also got a framed keep calm carry on poster for ¬£24.99
I cant find a picture of the exact poster in frame,
but its pretty much as above!
 My rooms theme is kinda kitsch retro Brit pop,
Plain white walls,
Black furniture, and bright accent colours,
so it goes amazingly
Most of my money went on this cushion!
I cannot tell you how much I love it!
It is huge, and so Brit pop!
it was £50, should be £100 though.
It’s by a french brand called Teo Jasmin
Who specialize in digitally printed interior items,
like cushions, chairs and canvases
Their website is full of amazing items
Including this:
Which I LOVE
It doesn’t go with my room at all, so I’m not going to get it
but I cant wait till I have a house of my own so I can give each room a theme!
So yeah,
back to saving my money now!
Do you get excited about interiors??

What Milly Wore: It’s a Hair Affair!

In all saints, Disney couture, hair, new look, Pink, rayban, topshop, what milly wore on June 5, 2010 at 10:00 pm
Good evening chickadees
 This is what I wore… erm a few days ago!
Spotty Dress: New Look £15
Black Cardigan: Topshop
Black Leggings: New Look
Name Necklace: Tatty Devine
Cat Ballet Pumps: Topshop
Upon taking the above what Milly wore picture earlier this week
I realised, I have crap hair!
TBH Id let it go a bit, hadn’t dyed it or had it cut in ages
let alone trying to style it!
So I got my hair cut at a local salon
and then me and my sister got to dying it last night and I LUFF it!
(apologies for the lack of make-up trying to give my sensitive skin a rest!)
Although its been asymmetric for a while, with a little undercut going on
It had grown out, and really didn’t look like anything proper!
So I asked the girl to shave the one side closer so it would take longer to grow back!
and when I dyed it, after the rebleaching / pinking and rootidge fixing
I put some blue on my wee shaved bit!
I likey!
It means I can wear it all across like this for funky days
or all down to cover my little secret for work!
Next I’m thinking a leopard print bit
yes??
Anyway, this is what I wore today
Ramskull Vest: Allsaints
Skull Necklace: Disney Couture
Skinny Jeans: New Look
Tattoo Ballet Pumps: Underground
Wang a like bag: Ebay
Sunglasses: Rayban
What do you think of my hair
too extreme?
do I look like an emo boy?
or do you like it?
Would you guys be interested in seeing how I dye it?
Hope you all have a fab weekend!
