What I Wore...

Top//Urban Outfitters.
Skirt//Urban Outfitters.
Ring//Llymers Jwlry shop. 

Loving the 'vintagey' look, the school girl frilly socks are a favourite plus the fact that they were a bargain, 50p from Tesco!

Literally can't get enough of Urban Outfitters at the moment, although it can be expensive, this top was £18 in the sale, not too bad. The cherry coloured skirt adds a pop of colour.

I decided I needed some new boots for this winter and found some amazingly cheap ones in H&M but they didnt have my size...typical! So in the end I opted for the riding style boots from Topshop. Lovin' them!

American Fingertips.

Dwelling on the past....and suffering from the summer blues, especially with the bi-polar weather we are suffering from here in the UK. 

I went on an American road trip in the summer, visiting L.A, Santa Barbara, Las Vegas, Pheonix, Palm Springs etc. It was amazing and I want to go back! 

Before we flew out, I felt the need to get in the American spirit...

I got these acylic nails which the technician and I just made up as we went along, but thankfully it turned out ok! (Apart from the fact that my bum went numb after sitting down for 2 and a half hours...ouch!)

I'd love to have acylic nails all the time - wouldn't we all? But they are expensive and do damage the nail. Which is a shame because they look amazing!

Gothic Glamour

Black is the classic colour everyone goes back to. It goes with, you name it, everything.

So when I was rummaging through my wardrobe at 7.30am, frantically trying to find suitable clothes for a day of college, why is it I immediatly turned to the reliable black leggins and a black tunic? Simply because it looks...nice.

After my morning crisis, ASOS once again became my saviour.
I found this...

I couldn't get a good shot of the back, so take a look at the link.

The rings are from Accessorize. 

Who said Gothic was out of fashion?

The delicate, sheer material juxtaposes the inital heaviness of the piece and the white embroidered crosses uplift the intensity.

What I'm trying to say is; it's unique.

The cape-like pleat at the back is my favourite. £39 is not cheap and quite frankly, I don't think it should be that expensive but I am going to keep my beady eye on Reverse - the design label - because of their innovative designs and I think you should too!

Metallic nail varnish

The other night I dreamt about a nail varnish. 

Yes, I am that sad. 

Ever since, I have been trauling the internet to find a colour that matches my vision...
The only way I can describe it is the outside layer of tin foil - a mirror. 

I can see it now; a black striped tunic tucked into a woolen, maroon skirt with MIRRORED NAILS! 
So, if anyone could recommend me one, that'd be perfect! But in the meantime, I shall carry on dreaming...

With Regret...

Honestly, I never planned for my 'focus on study' break to be so long. I regret it hugely because blogging was (and still is!) my love. A Levels are taking its toll, and quite frankly, that's the only valid reason for my non-existant blogging.

A massive thank you to all the followers that have continued to follow my blog.

But one thing is for certain, I am back. For good. Without a doubt. I promise.
