Wearing: Topshop coat, Vintage scarf, Mulberry bag, H&M bowler, Topshop jeans, Celine tee (via eBay) vintage shoes
Today I thought it would be nice to make the most of the changeable weather (windy/sunny/rainy/snow-currently stuck on sunny) to get some snaps taken for an outfit post. I really liked this background which is a pretty stark and simple one but I liked the look of it so Adrian started taking my picture. After a time I leant back against it to get a few different looks and noticed something out of the corner of my eye. The wall was mottled with tiny holes and out of each hole, a giant (no exaggeration!) spider was emerging. After I'd calmed down and made Age reassure me that there were no spiders crawling on my coat/hair/scarf, we realised that they were almost like trapdoor type spiders, each of the little holes in the wall having tiny strands of silk around it's entrance. Well of course me posing like a pro up against the wall enticed them out by disturbing the silk strands. I was completely freaked out but it was quite interesting in some respects, who knew you'd get spiders like that in the UK? Urgh, they were huge, shiny and brown with the longest legs! *shudder* oh the perils of blogging!
I've had this blogger's fave Celine tee for ages, but I hadn't got round to wearing it as it's a bit of a funny shape on me. I bought it thanks to an eBay link by VIPXO (see here) and I bought a size medium, it's quite short in the body but too broad in the back for me so I don't think I'll be able to wear it without something over the top of it like a jacket or cardigan as it makes me look very square! This whole outfit is very me; I love mixing a bit of high street with a cheeky lable and obviously a dose of vintage. My fave!
I also used the slightly sunnier weather to sack off the boots I've been wearing all week and pop on my favourite vintage granny shoes which I got in a charity shop. I am obsessed with grannyish footwear and luckily seem to be able to find a fair few pairs in my size in my local charity shops so I am always scooping these up. These are my pair of the moment but will probably be usurped by a pair of Charles Jourdan's I picked up for £4.99 last week!
Finally I just wanted to let you know you can follow my blog on Bloglovin. As you may or may not be aware, Google Reader (and possibly soon Google Friend Connect) is now defunct and so you can keep track of all my posts very easily on Bloglovin. I've only recently begun using it myself but I am really enjoying the platform; it's much easier to have all my favourite blogs in one place to bea ble to read and comment at my leisure.
