Long time no blog! I've been so lazy~
The weather's been so lovely recently I just haven't felt like doing anything but I ventured out today to London do some serious shopping as I've been having withdrawals.
I went to Oxford street, as usual! It's usually pretty quiet on Wednesdays, especially at around 11o'clock, the time I normally go up there but it was strangely busy today...
still didn't deter me!!
So on reaching Oxford street, the heavens decided to open and it was basically a torrential down pout of rain the entire time I was shopping. Somehow this caused one of the soles of my boots to come away from the rest of the boot, not that you could really notice it but I'm a bit annoyed that I can't wear them anymore... in the bin they go!
SO my first port of call in Oxford street was Office Shoes! I haven't bought shoes in ages but I did go in there for a specific reason...
Lets see what's in this giant-ass bag....
SHOES OF COURSE. But they're not just any shoes...
They're Jeffrey Campbell 'Lita' boots
IN TAUPE SUEDE!!!
This probably means nothing to a lot of you but basically I've been wanting to get hold of these hipster-magnets for a long time and I've only just bought them and I feel all tingly inside~
When the shop assistant brought them out I nearly had a heart attack and when I took them to the till was suddenly surrounded by another 2 staff congratulating me on my excellent choice of footwear and that they all had a pair. I felt like I was a member of an elite club!
THEY GO WITH EVERYTHING.
Oh yeah on with the other stuff. After feeling guilty over spending £120 on shoes (£108 with student discount!), but still in clothes I decided to brave Primark.
Primark is Oxford street a force to be reckoned with especially when its raining but I was brave ;_;
I wanted to try a vintage- [how I hate that word]esque look, hence why I bought these particular things. I don't normally buy clothes like these but I wanted to try something different!
and obviously I'll put a Gal twist on it when I style it up~
Simple black bag. It's spring now and as much as I love my furry River Island shoulder bag, I shall put it away for next autumn/winter.
it doesn't really show up in the photo but it's faux leather.
Rope necklace thingy. I don't know what attracted me to this, maybe because I've been staring at too many Mode-gyaru brand web-stores recently but it's quite lovely! It makes me want to wear a bikini and hunt for a beach.
Leopard print wrap. I don't know what you're supposed to call this silhouette (I thought it was a kimono sleeve top, but there seem to be no kimono sleeves...) It's really sheer and feels like chiffon. You can wear it tied up, as pictured, or let the the ends hang down.
It looks quite peachy in the picture but the skirt is more of a terracotta colour with cute little razor pleats.
It was called a size 8/10 but when I tried to pull it on, I could hear threads in the top hem snap as the elastic stretched x_x That's Primark quality for you aye!
A trip to John Lewis looking for black gel eyeliner (which I forgot to buy =_=) I came out with the blusher I posted in my March Want list; Nar's Angelika!
The camera flash drowned out the pink a bit but if you look on My want list 2 entries back, you can see it's true colour~
and lastly, a cape. I didn't buy this from London, I ordered it from ASOS a few days ago and it happened to appear on my door-step when I arrived back from London much to my delight!
On the hanger, it does look like it's just a blanket... Come to think of it, it basically is; a blanket with a slit going half way through the middle.
It sort of just hangs off your arms. It's super comfortable and perfect for Spring.
I had my 4th and 5th (it was a double lesson) driving lesson today and nobody died and I didn't total my instructors car so in my opinion that was a very successful day of driving!
I shall leave you with a song
