Black and White, Lace and a Gucci Belt

My Gucci belt finally arrived from Vestiare Collective! If you follow me on Twitter,  you might have seen my excitement waiting for this to arrive. It was my first time purchasing anything through Vestiare Collective, and although it took quite a long time to be delivered, I’m very happy with the service. I would definitely trust them as a company from which to purchase second hand high end items again. Continue reading “Black and White, Lace and a Gucci Belt”

Butterfly Dress and Denim Jacket – Spring is on its way!

I’d forgotten how much I like this butterfly print dress I picked up last summer. I remember being undecided about which size to get, being a bit in between sizes when I tried it on. I eventually went for the smaller of the two, and I’m really glad I did. After bursting out of another dress last week, I’ve been feeling a bit low in terms of my size, health and fitness in general. It’s definitely been a good start to the week to be able to fit into a smaller dress and being reminded that a broken zip doesn’t necessarily indicate an enormous size gain.

Old Clothes, New Outfit

I’ve worn every item in this post hundreds of times, but never together! The burgundy knit from last winter is the newest piece here, and it’s featured many times over on my Instagram. I’m also wearing my go-to block heeled ankle boots, which have had A LOT of wear over the years. This thin Mac from Primark was a bargain buy ages ago, and whilst I’d like to invest in a higher quality version, I’ve yet to find something that I’m willing to splash out on when this one does the job pretty well. Finally, this printed light cotton skirt: I’m wearing in my Twitter profile pic, and it must be at least 10 years old now!  Continue reading “Old Clothes, New Outfit”

Retro Tuesday – Valentine’s Edition

Valentine’s Day. Love it or not, it comes around every year, and it’s pretty much unavoidable. On social media, on the high street, on telly, it’s enforced romance and commercialism everywhere. To be fair, a lot of my friends have been advocating love in general, which is surely a good thing in the world today. I’m not a big fan of competitive romance, so I don’t really buy into the whole thing. I do like to nod to a trend in a small way though, so I’ve worn a red shirt and some rose quartz in honour of the schmaltz. Continue reading “Retro Tuesday – Valentine’s Edition”

Cosy Knit and Black

On a dreary Monday after a tiring weekend, I honestly didn’t have the energy to try and put together a particularly snazzy outfit. My default throughout the winter months has been a chunky, cosy knit and simple separates. I’ve gone for this tried and tested combo here, with an old roll neck jumper I acquired from a previous house share, trusty black skinnies and an age old wool coat.
