HOW. AMAZING.



Look what I found on Etsy today- a beautiful vintage cowhide clutch. Perfect for carrying from class to class during term time next year, I'm sure.. and oh so practical, no?

I LOVE.

oh so RETRO



Found this lovely online vintage store the other day whilst on the blog traipse the other day. Even better news is that the prices are pretty reasonable AND it's UK based so I get cheap delivery. YEAH.

Ciao Donnatella



Well it looks like I'm the last person on the planet to hear about Donnatella's agreeable new hook-up with H&M. AHH could not be more excited, especially because it's all gonna be in stores around the world, from the 17th of November, which, isn't that far away. So, between moving and studying, looks like I got me some saving to do.

Ciao H&M.

ohhh SADIE



Initially I think it was the vibrant colour that first attracted me to this little gem.
..And then I really looked at it, and now, love it as if it were one of my limbs, something i may not be able to live without: I know it's definitely not something I'd normally be drawn to: but something about it- and I'm not sure what exactly- really calls out to me, like a friend with a juicy story to tell .. ohhh.

(The) 'Sadie'.. I must have you.

Everybody's Girl.




My new style obsession, and just general female crush, Miss Chung I do adore you, oh so very much. With her mature take on our Brits preppy school boy style the majority of the time, she rarely manages to get it wrong in the eye's of yours truly.
Beautiful, witty, and practically perfect in every way.
Alex Chung.

I don't know why I do



I found this in last chance to buy the other day, sadly in the wrong size.
BUT today I found it in store.. I love it so much, something draws me to it, but I dont know what it is.
Think I'm going to have to just 'Go For It'.

El-Oh-Vee-Ee.




After seeing Miu Miu's swallow platforms in their spring '10 show, I found myself a little obsessed with any kind of block heeled shoe. Although, I found pretty much everything that did catch my eye at that point, was a little out of my price range. So, anyway, here we are a year on: I'm in Topshop having a quick rummage to see if there's anything suitable for my graduation dinner: and I come across these babies (the layla block heels). AND.. In. My. Size. All those old feelings of love and devotion (you bet I had any pictures of these shoes, and possible outfit choices to go with them, taped alllll over my bedroom walls) towards that particular pair of shoes, came flooding right back, and so I felt I owed it to myself to at least try them on for size. The shop assistant assured that there were only two pairs left (one in my size, thank god), and so after trying on- and them looking even more amazing with my feet in them- I had to make that purchase.

SO, I wore them in the car ride home, I had them on whilst getting ready for dinner yesterday evening; I wore them TO dinner, and out afterward too. I wore them this morning as I got dressed: even though the balls of my feet were killing me, after wearing them all of last night. I wore them as I munched on my breakfast this morning. I had them on whilst I lay on my bed, and read some Hemmingway at lunch. And I'm wearing them now, whilst I'm writing this post- as I write, thinking where else I may possibly be able to wear these beauties again.
So at this point, I'm definitely thinking I've got my money's worth out of these shoes.

Thank. You. Topshop.
