Elsie and Fred

I got a really cool array of goodies from Elsie and Fred, a grunge, DIY, 90s vintage inspired store. Right up my street, I got a few pieces from there that I would deem as key pieces. The Sunglasses are so so cool, with an oil slick effect on he front and mostly shining greens and blues, they have such a 80s rockstar vibe to them. The jacket is a vintage Levi number, with a modified back reading 'Wild Hearts can't be broken' which I guess is true! I don't know if i've had my heart broken, but I definitely am a wild one. Then there's the tie dye tee with a mystical moon city print, taking me back to the 90s when there was an obsession with witch craft and mystery. 

I then finished this look with Missguided Leggings, a Claire's Accessories hat and the flat forms are from Spy Love buy.

Mother's Day

I had a delightful time round mother's today. We ate loads of food, good meats, salad and potatoes and finger picking goodness. Followed by an array of cakes. I haven't eaten that much in a while because I'm trying to be on a health kick to loose some weight before my busy summer!
My sisters and my nieces were over and we had a really nice afternoon, most of which was spent retrieving Lola from the neighbours garden, that she decided she took a fancy for as she found a way in. I love my mother, I hope you all had a great day with your families too!

Double Stag

Myself and Matthew both decided to get some more apparel from Stag as we mutually agreed it was mega cool. He for one loved it when he saw the first tshirt I got. What we both liked, is that fact that all their apparel is unisex so we can switch and swap with each other.

This time I went for this stand tall print because it has an American vintage feel, like an old advert. Perfect to wear with denim. I also went for the grey beanie as my hair is rather loud at the moment so I dont really want to wear anything that would clash. Matty went for the pinup vest, mainly to show off his arms (don't tell him I said that), but hey, they are GOOD arms. He pinched my burgundy beanie to finish the look.

Designer Desirables

Always on the hunt for dresses suitable for gigs/ festivals, I found this gorgeous number form designer desirables. I like that it looks quite bohemian but has the girly lace trim underneath. It is layered with a basic top, the lace, then the baggy dip dye top to finish. I would almost like to say its shabby chic, a term i've never ted to describe clothing, but it is, the light materials make it somewhat elegant contrasted against the overall baggy aesthetic which gives it that casual twist. 

I teamed it up with a chunky necklace I got from Topshop ages ago and some big boots.
