NEW IN:
texture treats.

Velvet, wool, sequins and sparkles; I want to wear them all, ALL THE TIME

I have been more than a little bit norty in these past couple of weeks i.e. spending money I should be saving, on things I couldn't physically resist.

First up, I've done it; found the perfect LBD come LVD, killing two birds with one stone. I deserve a pat on the back. Clutching desperately onto the fact that technically, my student life ain't over yet (gap yah, y'know), I got this for a steal in their 20% off, student, weekend event, a while ago now; I ain't prepared to let that little luxury slip through my grasp, anytime soon. But look, its nice a pretty and velevet-y and sparkle-y. The perfect party dress, just need me some invites.
Velvet, glitter spot, skater dress: Topshop

Forever 21 are my latest proud pleasure. It is ridiculous cheap with stellar offerings. My first impression initiated thoughts of a budget UO store without the pretentious kooky bric-a-brac. Do we agree? It has taken Newcastle too long to introduce one of those to its streets, how long do we reckon it is before it gets its own F21? Another reason to move to London.
Sequin skirt: F21

Finally, h&m how I love thee. Top form they are. Countless times I have walked in and grabbed a staple that I had been longing for, to no avail. They have come up trumps too many times this season, I am somewhat anticipating the downfall. This is a cheaper and toastier version of that TOPSHOP knit that I had my literal heart set on. I bought this from h&m on Camden High St. so obvz I love it even more.
Fluffy knit: h&m

That's my lot for a while.

Another day trip to London beckons, I can't keep away.

  13. Completely agree that urban outfitters is pretentious! It's so overpriced for the kind of stuff it sells. I've only ever bought a tshirt out of there.
    I wore a wool skirt yesterday. It's the way forward. x

  15. That dress is absolutely amazing, it just calls out to me everytime I'm in Topshop! It's just perfect. You can't go wrong with velvet and sparkles.

    I live in Newcastle too and my friend was saying we apparently are getting a forever 21! She knows someone who works in Topshop in the Metrocentre and apparently Forever21 is taking over where Primark was, hooray!

  18. Definitely agree with you on F21! The Topshop dress is lovely, will be on the lookout for it now! x

  19. Love the velvet dress... I want a nice skater velvet dress. As for Forever 21, like..half my clothes are from there as I worked at the flagship store (in Birmingham you know :P) I agree, there is a lot of good stuff at a good price, but man there is so much crap too.. I would say less UO and more H&M. Oh and F21 are opening SO many stores atm so one in newcastle will probably pop up soon!
