"OH, I'M JUST A GIRL, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT ME".

Listening to: Just A Girl- No Doubt.

Today I finally got to see Chris! I haven't seen him since Sunday afternoon and after falling asleep straight after work (both guilty there), being called into work on my day off again (me) and a million other reasons it was nice to finally see him and have a massive catch up and gossip and general couple conversations. After buying him a new pair of work trousers (as he has started a new job) I finally bought a tripod. Now I feel like a proper fashion blogger. Yippee!! (Again what does everyone think of the photos and do you have any suggestions to improve them?)

These photos were taken after taking my boyfriend to work and getting stuck in traffic. This is the 'dog walker entrance' to the Town Park and just out of sight from the road- which was a very good thing as a man on a bike drove past me 3 times (and although I am now sure was just curious) freaked me out causing me to run with everything just bundled in my arms back to my car. I then saw 2 other men dressed just like the first ride past and realised it was probably just the uniform from a factory at the industrial estate and felt a little silly.




Dress: Primark & DIY
Socks: Primark
Shoes: Lakeside
Oversize Denim Jacket: Charity Shop
Choker: eBay (similar here)
Gloves: eBay
Spiked Headband: Topshop
Bag: eBay

I LOVE this look! L-O-V-E it! The dress I have had in my wardrobe for about 4 years, it was originally yellow but yellow looks awful on me (I have yellow tinted skin) so I wore it perhaps just once of twice. But the cut of the dress was amazing so naturally I dyed it a nice safe black colour (you can still see the yellow in the stitching but I quite like that so not even going to attempt to dye it). I love the way it flares out and fits perfectly around my chest and waist (whooo). But mostly it makes my chest look amazing!

My denim jacket is here once again but I am still in two minds if I should leave it be or stud the shoulders... I'm so indecisive!

The headband was not a DIY for once (completely shocking my boyfriend) and  was bought with the remainder of a voucher from Topshop. Not only is it simply amazing because of the spikes, but its in a beautiful  pale pink colour. This is the furthest from what I would normally go for (my whole family asked me if I was actually aware it was pink) but that's what attracted me to it. The it is different to what I would normally pick, and I think it looks awesome with my hair.

I'm well aware it is no longer available online and probably not available in most stores but I honestly think it is a wardrobe essential for everyone to own a spiked or studded piece of head ware.


For a difference in the normal black colour (and one that would look amazing in either red hair like me or brunette) you can't say no to this beautiful Gold spiked headband from ASOS (they also have it in black); or this Exaggerated spiked headband from Dixi. Or the Best of the bunch- this amazingly beautiful Floral spiked headband from Creepyyeha (its beautiful- check out her other floral headbands with pink flowers).

  32. I love love love this outfit! & your outfit photos are looking seriously amazing these days - you even have the posing spot on, miss fashionista! I'm so glad you got a DSLR in the end. Posing in public is horrificly embarrassing at first but you get used to it, promise. After a while you just won't give a shit who sees you! haha
