Marching bands of Manhattan

(Gold jumper: Vintage, Cross Skirt: Topshop, Stud belt: ASOS, Gold shoes: DIY)

Honestly, I don't even know guys. Between seeing Twilight recently and having shoulders like an American footballer apparently makes me pull mega brat face and endorse hand-on-hip posing. Kirsten Stewart can take the blame for this one. 

SO-MUCH-GOLD, I hear your eyes scream... Yeah. I did. Not one thing I am wearing on my body doesn't have gold on it somewhere. What can I say? I am feeling festive. Wearing a tinsel jumper will do that to any girl. Honestly unsure of what this material is... itchy though, wearing that grandma endorsed vest is a winner with it.

This skirt is from last Christmas time? Did anyone else get it? The quality was almost stunningly bad. The beads might as well have been stuck on with blue tack. I worked in Topshop at the time and saw the beautiful beaded floor below the arm full of this item  and bought it anyway... deary me. I did rush it home though and sew the beads on a bit better. Pretty sure this baby was recalled. 

Oh well, did anyone see my friend in these pictures? He has been a feature of my flat since last Halloween, I saw him this year, Mid October and considered taking him down but I think the office block across the road has grown quite attached so I left him. Wouldn't want to ruin office moral. Also, my flat is a homage to every holiday, except easter... bats, snow flakes, bunting, paper streamers... so it seemed immoral to cut him down in his prime.


With love from,

  6. That skirt looks lovely, I never would have known the trouble you had with the beads from just looking at it. The little crosses on it are cute x

    1. I am so not a cross kind of girl but the flippy skirt sold it for me and I actually love this skirt. Topshop quality can be pretty bad especially when it comes to embellished items.
