bohemian rhapsody

i really didn't want to use the word 'boho' but i didn't know how else to describe these dresses, they're not to everyone's taste but i just love them & how effortless they are to wear. i always get compliments when i wear mine (even if it is from 5 year old girls!)

mia christiana /// stylelikeu

see her video & the rest of the photos on stylelikeu website. i don't really know how i feel about some of the videos on the stylelikeu website, as much as i love nosing around people's wardrobes when you hear the people talk, most of the time they just end up sounding really pretentious and contrived. or maybe that's just me.

rubbish stories by roseanna clare

you know when you begin telling a story to someone and then halfway through you realise it's actually really boring and you wish you'd never brought it up? well roseanna clare collected a load of stories her friends made her suffer and wrote them all in a sketchbook and added artwork to them. i'm ashamed to admit that the second one was my contribution..

check out the rest & more of her art on her tumblr

the one's that got away

these are just three many pieces of jewellery i wish i owned but alas are too expensive and/ or are sold out. 
exhibit a) tom binns safety pin earrings (too expensive)
exhibit b) iwona ludyga skull bracelet (too expensive & sold out)
exhibit c) low luv x erin wasson bone hoop earrings (went down to £15 and sold out, i'm kicking myself)

p.s. apologies for my awful picture editing skills, i dunno i kinda like it scrappy?

lazy weekend

lots of cat snuggling, cosy jumpers and grey's anatomy. one of my news years resolutions was to take more photos for my blog so here's a start! other resolutions include reading more books, to get a new job and to finally make it to paris to see pauline! 

because brown elbow patches are so last year

made in chelsea

i love a pair of boots, (i think its in my genes - my mother is a self confessed boot whore), but more specifically chelsea boots. My housemate would grow increasingly frustrated everytime i acquired a new pair as his small boy brain failed to comprehend how this pair was so different to a pair i already owned (heel height! this pair go further up my leg! they were on sale!). at this point in time i am looking to add a patterned pair to my wardrobe so here's a few pairs that have recently made me drool (not really! maybe a bit!)

please please let me get what i want

i want this dress from jarlo so much! if only i had £60+ to blow on it, i would pair it with lacey socks and my office frightener clogs.
