"WHEN I FALL IN LOVE, IT WILL BE FOREVER."

Reading: Sense and Sensibility- Jane Austen.

If you haven't already noticed- I love studs! It was only a matter  of time until I studded another jumpers shoulders (as I had done so here). Black is 'my colour' over 3/4 of my wardrobe is black and i feel most comfortable in it, so naturally I choose a black jumper to stud.
1) The jumper I used is from Primark
2) What makes this jumper prefect to stud is the knitted pattern- how it has thicker patches and makes it really easy to stud in a patten.
3) I used these studs from Studs and Punks- some old and some new. the new ones are ever so slightly thicker so a bit harder to bend the prongs (but worth it)


4) One shoulder down...
5) And both together...
6) looks perfect.

It's first day out was for a coffee up the town centre with my boyfriend. I say a coffee we left my house at 12 noon and didn't return home until gone 9pm! We ended up meeting a couple of friends and a coffee turned into a coffee and a quick pint (or a cup of tea to me) to several cups of tea to dinner at King Du (if you are ever in the Harlow area i strongly recommend you visit them).

This jumper is a little deceiving- although look like all the hole would make it very light and chilly, it is not. It is very very VERY hot to wear (to the point where I have to take it off in my room when the heating is on) and almost like a jacket. I paired it with my lovely pin-up dress which am very happy layered so well so I can continue to wear it throughout the A/W.

P.S. I just started using LookBook (which I can't access on my PC at all so have to access on my iPhone making it a massive pain in the bum), and i am really enjoying it!
