Grey Gardens

 (feather cardigan and kilt: Topshop boutique, Wide brim hat: H&M Trend, silver pumps: & Other Stories, textures cami: New Look,  necklace: DIY) #teenvogue

White on white and black on black. I raise you. Try Grey on Grey. A depressing majority of my wardrobe is grey. It matches my personality. Don't suppose anyone has ever seen the documentary of Grey Gardens, not the weird Drew Barrymore adaptation? If not, I highly recommend it. Little Edie is maybe my favourite person and Big Edie is maybe my least favourite person. Obviously it is depressing, but who wouldn't find some pleasure in watching Little Edie being cute and Big Edie getting annoyed at the cats peeing on her portrait, while demanding ice cream? If you don't have 100 minutes spare, do watch Edie's flag dance that I linked above. It is too cute and makes me proud.. to be an American...?

If you want to ride a rainbow come with me

(Water colour blouse: & Other Stories, Orange skirt: Topshop Boutique, White pumps: ASOS) #teenvogue

I am not usually a fan of indoor pictures. People always do a much better job than me. Having nice scenery behind you covers a myriad of sins you wouldn't even care to know about. So my new "Irn Bru" skirt- as my sister fondly appointed it- is a current favourite of mine. It's flippy, it's orange, it's a crepe fabric. Basically I am envisaging many an outfit with it. Orange goes with everything, why did it take until my 20's to work this out?!

No help here from heaven

 Chvrches: Broken Bones (bonus track)

 (Feather collar: Topshop, Mesh stripe tee: & other stories, leopard trousers: H&M Trend, pumps: Zara) #teenvogue

I certainly didn't think this collar would be as massive/ heavenly when I bought it. It kinda looks like wings/ something Princess Mononoke would wear, therefore, I obviously couldn't reject it.

Also some sad news. RIP to these Zara shoes, you saw me through graduation and through many a day at work, I was sad to see you give up on life in January 2014 on my lunch time walk in an Industrial estate at approximately 12:42. Gone too soon without the true dignity a shoe of your kind deserves.

P.S. thanks for going at lunch time so I had to continue my afternoon meetings with a  heel bent into an approximate 45 degree angle. That was a fun afternoon. Nothing says, "I am a professional lady" better than limping around in a broken shoe.

Hot and Steamy

 (floral dress: Zara, M Belt: Maison Scotch, heels: Aldo, Bug necklace: ASOS, Hat: Vintage Pucci, purse: Mulberry) #teenvogue

Heh heh. Accidentally posted this last night. I should wear my glasses more, "Publish" is an orange button, "Save" is the one next to it that is grey.

So, these images are a bit swampy. I guess this is the hazard of taking your camera from a 4 degrees Scottish winter day to a humid 20 degrees. Steamy. Although, I kinda like how they turned out, so I should play this off as artistic not an accident. 

Much love,

Mutant and proud

 (X-Men Sweatshirt: Forever21, Snake leather skirt: ASOS, Silver Pumps: & Other Stories, Silver cuffs: H&M, Handbag: Zara) #teenvogue

Something you may or may not know about me. I love a bit of X-Men. Not the films, except First Class (don't get me started on lack of continuity and how inaccurate it was to the real thing though). I am meaning X-Men Evolution. I spent many hours of avoiding learning my times table watching the team take out the Brotherhood. My lame extent can be measured by my personal email address which may or may not have included Shadowcat somewhere in it.  Basically the only way I will give up my last name is if I marry a Mr Frost.

 So, we have all thought about it, what would your superpower be?

Find me at Tooting Bec

BAKERLOO by London Retro 

I was 10 when I got my first glasses, which coincidentally coincided with the same age I got braces. I didn't get courted much that year, and I was certainly never asked to dance to Steps at the school discos. As an "adult" even more vain than my 10 year old self I wanted to give contacts a go. However, after the stress of ruining numerous pairs while a rather aggressive optician successfully managed to stuff pair number 4 in my eyes, only to find myself even more blind than I was before, I gave up on the idea and re-embraced the glasses. I actually need my glasses for basically everything just short of wearing them all the time; work, reading, driving- living. One pair isn't really enough. If I leave my pair at work, the fear of being told I am on the threshold of being able to legally drive without glasses becomes a bit stressful, especially if you are already driving in 5 inch heels. Which is bad enough. Then the lovely Jess from MyOptique emailed me asking if I'd like to review a pair of their new range, which, wait for it, was inspired by the London subway. Cute. To avoid another harrowing experience including unnecessary blindness and eye poking or driving in constant fear of killing someone I jumped at the chance! Now, I must admit, buying prescription glasses online is something I had never considered, I am that girl in the opticians that goes to every shop in the city to try on every pair and leaves deflated, wishing she had a different face. My fussiness seemed incompatible with not being able to physically try on glasses. However, all the shapes in this collection are very modern and I actually found it really difficult to pick just one pair. Obviously the pricings are very competitive too, unless you opt for the grandma lilac wire frames you are unlikely to get the frames alone for much less than £100. Each pair in the collection comes in at a post-student-I-am-still-grippy friendly price of £79. VoilĂ , opinion on shopping for glasses online has now completely changed. 

So, MyOptique gift to you? Sight, enter below for your chance to win a pair of your choice.To enter you have to buy me a puggle pug. Only joking, just "like" MyOptique on Facebook and post on their wall "Enter Tea Toast Fashion's Give Away". Easy! The lovely guys over at MyOptique will also happily convert your glasses into Sunglasses or put in a prescription. See the full collection here, I have my fingers crossed for you.
