Listening to: Here (In Your Arms)- Hellogoodbye

Sometimes a weekend is just not long enough! Friday after work I went straight to Chelsmford for Chris gig (see the video here if interested), then Saturday I spent in London for day 2 of London fashion week (post will be up as soon possible once I get all my thoughts in order) and had an AMAZING time. I can barely putt into words how much fun I had seeing the shows and looking at all the street style but mostly meeting all the lovely bloggers (thank you girls for putting up with me!!). After that I went to South London (near Canning town) for another gig then back home to Harlow and the Square; where I had an awful experience leaving earlyish on my own where someone tried to get into my car tugging the handle and knocking on the window and then a man staring at me with his trousers undone. Chris had to come save me as I was to scared to start my car.

Yesterday I spent a very tired day (exhausted from the previous days activities) altering clothing, food shopping while my parents are away, and cooking an very tasty veggie curry for me and Chris.

One such item I altered was a sheer jacket. It came with a sequined patten over the front lapels but I am petrified of wearing sequined clothing. I am convinced that they will break off and get buried into my skin. It took me hours to carefully removed one by one and place it firmly into Chris had for safe keeping and disposal, with several breaks for snacks; and I  nearly cried when i dropped a sequin on my lap and Chris had to find it. I have no idea where my fear of them have come from but I can have them on clothing.

Today I've been doing the last of my weekend chores, and had to drive the 3 hour round trip to uni to drop of a letter (as they ever have not received the first or just don't feel like replying- I suspect the later).

Jacket: eBay and altered
Dress: Topshop
High Waisted Velvet Pants: Unlovable Lingerie
Shoes: DIY
Necklace: Gift
Bag: River Island

I love this lace dress but feel like I never wear it often enough- mostly because as its lace I worry about it catching on things, but partly because its a maxi and slightly sheer I can't help to be a bit 'bare' with what I wear underneath and constantly get comments about putting on some clothes.

I like this look. I love the sheer maxi look. This sheer number from American Apparel will feel very much at home in my wardrobe, and I am very tempted to buy this petite number  from ASOS too (although think I will be way too tall). Chris if you are reading this I would very much like this peach maxi- but in a size that will fit me, can you get your eagle eyes onto this task.
