"I WOULD GO OUT TONIGHT, BUT I HAVEN'T GOT A STITCH TO WEAR".

Listening to: This Charming Man- The Smiths.

Day 4 in France was rather uneventful- as our plane home was early afternoon. The strange thing to note that as we were leaving France it got really overcast (and apparently rained) and we landed to brilliant sunshine in England! Talk about taking the weather with us. Our flight was very quick- it takes just over an hour and we got home in only 45 minutes- which my sister slept the whole flight through- tempting me and her fiance to grab when the plane landed to frighten her but she woke up early. But our joking about it woke her up :(
This is what I wore home- and some pretty snaps of my hair! I bought this really beautiful pin/stick that I can use to put my hair in a bun (saving it from elastic hair bands).




Shirt: Charity shop
Disco pants: Ark clothing
Creepers: Camden (similar here)
Necklace: eBay (similar here)

I have fallen in love with these disco pants dupes- and I am very happy Becca from Fashion train not only wears them amazingly but also encouraged me to buy them a pair of disco pants for myself. I don't know if your like me but I actually prefer these to the American apparel ones (they're cheaper and better shaped for my body, as well as managing to get a pair that  fit me well where I was an in between size for the AA pairs.) but if I had the chance I would still buy a pair.

These are my picks for Disco pants- the American Apparel ones care of ASOS, Glamorous dupes, and my Ark clothing alternatives.
I've added some alternatives to items I own in the last few post and I was wondering- what do you guys think? Is it something you like? Helpful?

    I'm still not brave enough to try any variety of disco pant, as my legs are where I carry all my weight, but I'll definitely be umm-ing and ahh-ing over the dupes for the next few weeks, ha! xx
