YOU KNOW IT'S ONLY THE BEGINNING



KIMONO: *IN LOVE WITH FASHION/ ILWF - VINTAGE SHIRT: CHARITY SHOP - VINTAGE HIGHWAISTED DENIM SHORTS: WEARECOW - CLEATED SOLE BOOTS: *WHOLESALE7


I've been wearing this kimono (from ILWF)lots since I first got it as it goes with a lot of different things, I especially like it with my vintage charity shop find as the patterns and colours really compliment each other. Snowie decided she wanted to get in on the fun, not that that's any different from normal. She usually wanders aimlessly around in the background of my photos but this time she decided that she wanted to stand next to me for the entire photo process. Her face looks so happy and determined! Also these WEARECOW shorts are my favourite, they look super baggy but they fit in a weird baggy way, I think the legs on them must just be super wide. I wonder what type of trouser they were before they were cutoff for the legs to be that wide as I would like to find some more of these! They have a cute floral pocket stitched onto the back by the rework team at WEARECOW which I forgot to get a photo of but I'll try to remember next time!

HIGHSTREET VERSIONS OF THIS MONTHS FAV CHARITY SHOP LOOKS #1

Yesterday I went to London and had lunch with Anna, one of the lovely ladies from rewardStyle. We talked about lots of things, one of them was how I used to get asked lots of questions on formspring about what to buy on the highstreet and then I would go and find individual outfits for different people, this was back in 2010 of course. It was really fun so I thought maybe I should do something like that again. She also mentioned that I should do 'Shop The Look' type posts which, personally I've always thought of as a bit sell-out-y, but it does make sense in terms of because I wear a lot of vintage and charity shop items, they're all quite individual garments but I could find high street versions to show you all! So I thought that I would put together a post with my top three looks from the past month that have gained the most interest from you guys and show you where you can get my charity shop/ vintage items on the highstreet!

IN THE CORE I'VE FORGOTTEN IN THE MIDDLE OF MY THOUGHTS



SUN PRINT CROP TOP: *GYPSY WARRIOR - STRIPY TAPERED TROUSERS: *BLACKFIVE - BLACK LACE KIMONO: *SHE LIKES - VINTAGE GOLD CROP VEST: CHARITY SHOP - PINK LEOPARD PRINT CREEPERS: DEMONIA - NECKLACE/ CHOKER: DRUZY DREAMS - GLASSES: GLASSESSHOP.COM

The other day I decided to get my favourite creepers back out of the box and put them on for this outfit. I've pretty much stopped wearing creepers but occasionally these ones make a reappearance, they're super comfy because they've got a 3" platform at the back and 2" at the front making them easier to walk in than normal creepers which are super flat on the bottom and I always imagine that's what it would feel like to be an elephant. I went on the demonia website last night and noticed the bright electric blue creeper versions have been reduced to £40 and I'm contemplating getting them but I'm worried I will hardly wear them, such shoe problems. 

 I've also been wearing this kimono lots too, I've noticed them in some other colours on various websites and I'm considering getting them all so I have a nice variety or maybe that's just greedy but they make everything look so cool!

 Right now I'm on my way to London (woo train blogging) and I've forgotten my headphones and it's making me very sad as I never leave the house without them normally!!
