Bad Blood

Crop top - Topshop, Disco Pants - Missguided, Necklace - Republic, Lana heels - Jeffrey Campbell, Moschino belt - eBay.

So I've had these new disco pants since Christmas and I've only just had chance to wear them! I refused to pay another £70 for American Apparel disco pants so I opted for (or rather asked Santa for) the Missguided ones. And I can say I'm pretty impressed. Obviously you pay £70 for quality but for £25 these super shiny black ones are perfect. They're slightly more high waisted too which is nice. The only thing I would say it maybe get a larger size and the legs are quite tight! Anyway, safe to say I'll be getting my wear out of these bad boys.

Things we lost in the fire

Dress - H&M, Moschino belt - eBay, Boots - Jeffrey Campbell, Necklance - Republic

Now we're finally getting some light during the day I can actually take some photos! The weather has been so awful, I hate Jan and Feb, dark and dull and no clothing to buy. Mainly because I have no money but also I'm more than ready to buy summer clothes now! I have, however, booked a holiday this summer so I can start getting excited!

Anyway, the outfit. I wore this to my friends leaving do at work...

My boots were a bargain!! Jeffrey Campbells in TK Maxx, who'd have thought? And for £29.99 I couldn't resist (although my bank account nearly did 4 days before payday). They're super comfy too.

PMy belt was also a huge bargain, I have 'Moschino belt' as a saved listing on my iPhone so I get notified when a new one is added, this majorly paid off. This baby cost me £5.99 + postage so I was more than chuffed. Obvs it's not authentic but I can't quite afford £100 at the mo!

I bought my necklace around xmas time, I had been looking for a simple gold chain forever but all the ones I found where hollow or just crap and light but this one in republic was perfect! And at £9 compared to about £20 in Topshop I was impressed!

P.S. Quite a few of my posts/outfits are named after songs so I will start putting the artist too. This one is Things we lost in the fire - Bastille (I've got ticket to see them in March - so excited).

Shoes shoes shoes

So I finally organised my shoes! They have been upgraded from plastic boxes in my wardrobe to an actual shoe rack! (Well they're divided between 3 racks and now only one box - I have too many shoes.) The only problem with the shoe rack is the gaps aren't quite big enough for my shoe boots or really high heels - which make up the majority of my shoes. Luckily I have a few more shoe racks to use!
I sorted out my necklaces too, it's so much easier than running around my house looking for the last place I left a necklace. My spare room has now become my dressing/storage room (and gym since there's a weight bench in the middle too!)

2nd row- Topshop, Topshop, Mia Limited Edition, Kurt Geiger.
Belts - Moschino (eBay bargain at £6! WHATT)
Left to right - Primark x2, Forever 21 x2, Miss Selfridge, Matalan, Primark, Miss Selfride, Nasty Gal, Republic.

Now getting dress is easier in a morning and it finally starting to get light during my hours at home I might be able to start blogging again!

Watch this space.....
