Black & Blue





Crochet Waist Dress - Ebay (Topshop)
Denim Button Shirt - H&M
White Frill Socks - River Island
Spike Ear Cuff - Topshop
Alba Boots - Topshop
Woven Bag - Vintage
Lettered Necklace - Primark
Ring & Cross Bracelet - Topshop

I really love bringing this vintage woven bag out in the summer time and teaming it with denim, it's served me well at a couple of foreign holidays and festivals, and was actually bought by my mum in Topshop in like the 80's?! I know.. even my vintage items are from Topshop. Also, me with my hair in a topknot is a pretty rare sight, it usually means i'm either in a foreign country or severely hungover but in this case i'm in the middle of a hair dying process and i'm not that comfortable with the colour at the moment, it's in desperate need of an ash-based toner. I put some highlights in myself and they're a little brassy, so i'm waiting a few days to lessen the damage of another dying session! 

Also i should mention i have a giveaway planned for reaching 200 followers (i'm pleased as punch!) Pretty tempted to try the item on and keep it for myself, i won't lie, but i don't think my conscience would allow it. The item arrived yesterday, i'll give you a hint .. galaxy print! So i'll get that up within the week once i figure out how these giveaways are done, keep an eye out!

    1. Unfortunately it's a Topshop dress from last summer! I'm pretty sure there might be some on ebay if you do a search for a crochet waist dress! xx

  30. This dress is lovely and the denim shirt looks fabby over it, I might have a look in H&M for a shirt as I can't seem to find one that has the oversized look - most are fitted, and I think they look better worn big and loose over a pretty dress, like this!

    1. This is actually quite fitted buttoned up but i went for a larger size and left the buttons open! Try Topshop i think they usually always have a denim shirt of some description in stock! x
