Today, I’ve had probably one of the best Sundays i’ve had in a long time.  I did what Sundays are meant for…no not rest.  I worked four hours in the morning and then tidied my room up, one because it needed it, two to sort my clothes out, yes, I actually threw some away!! and three to start the long process of sorting out stuff to go back to uni.  Luckily a lot is already up there because I kept some stuff up there.  I then had a bath, a cream tea and came over to my Grandparents. 

I’m also really excited because my uncle is bringing down a free standing mirror which will go in my bedroom, i’m so excited! I’ve always wanted one. 

Anyway so i’m waiting for this vintage jacket I ordered on ebay to come but with it being Sunday the lack of post made me sad so i thought I would post about the other mail I recieved this week.  I love getting mail, unless its a bank statement.  I muse over it for a while and feel guilty nfor the fact it feels a bit thick and then toss it. 

So here’s what I recieved this week…

I got a couple of things from eBay.  After hankering over a cricket jumper for ages, I now have two!! I like this one the most though.

I think i’ll team it with my new oversize blazer, also eBay and of course my hat!

Sorry for the flat, lack of modelling, I know you probably all like to laugh at me (hahaha) but my hair was wet as i got out of the shower.

I also got this post card from my sister.

It made me so happy.  I love James Dean.  I watched Giant one day at uni when it was a sunny Friday and everyone had gone home.  It made me feel so much better!  I tweeted this a while back…

 “had a dream last night my Mum was watching James Dean movies loudly downstairs when I was in bed. #analysethat. xx”
In addition to my tidying I also finished my little project.  About three years ago I bought a trunk from Oxfam for £10 and I love it.  I had always wanted one and saw it and bought it!! It was lined with some old checked papers but it was peeling to I finally got round to peeling it off and replacing it with some old postcards and articles.  They used to be on my wardrobe but when I moved rooms I didn’t need it anymore but didnt want to lose the postcards. 
Just for good measure I thought i’d throw in a picture of my cream tea…all M&S !!
So that was my Sunday, hope you all had a good day of rest and that you have a good week!! xx

Short post, lots of photos.  All my posts are short at the moment.  Really because I’m working so much and i’m so tired when i come in.  I’d like to say this is what I wore today but it’s not.  I wore an M&S uniform but I can’t complain.

This is a hat I bought from New Look a couple of days ago.  The dress is a vintage St Michael (aka M&S, how fitting!) from ebay for £1.99.  I think I might shorten the hem and sleeves.  I plan to turn the sleeves up and line them with white material.

It’s a bit of 70s meets 40s with the hat and the dress.  Why not…xx

I’m not going to lie, I put this picture in because I think I look quite skinny in it.

Today’s wears

I looove my bag. My Dad bought it thinking it was bigger and gave it to me. I love the way it looks like a doctors bag. Too cute!!

Necklace is from Rock ‘n’ rose from like yeeeaaars ago. Stripy top is from France and its actually my Grandma’s. Shorts are Matalan. I was wearing bright pink gingham wedges but you can’t see them boo!

This picture made me laugh so I put it on.



The lighter pink bracelet I got for £1 in the Primark sale because it’s more or less identical to one my Mum has that’s made of coral. The only problem is that one is eating itself apparently.

The turban

Messing around with a homemade turban xx

I have never wanted to be somewhere so much in my entire life.  The vintage fair on south bank next weekend.  I’ve been following it on twitter for ages and I soooooo want to go.  

It’s my Mum’s birthday that weekend though and I have to work otherwise i’d be there.  

It takes place over three days next weekend celebrating all from the 20s to the 80s including musicfashionfilmartdesign, and dance.

It actually makes me almost cry when I write there will be a big dressing up box to dress up in all desires from mod, skate, disco and so much more.  

The six story building that is the Royal festival hall, celebrating its 60th birthday will be transformed into  a multi-venue playground where you can learn dances, have makeovers, experience catwalks, eat and drink and shop and there are even nightclubs with even more on the actual south bank.  Heaven could not possibly be sweeter.
