Rochas S/S '15

Oh. My. God.  I cannot even begin to describe how obsessed I am with this collection, in all its floaty sheer perfection.  And the shoes.  And the eye makeup.  Seriously, this is my favourite collection so far this season, and I can't imagine anyone will manage to top it (predictably, I'm still waiting for Chloe and Miu Miu- Carven and Dries van Noten have already managed to disappoint me)  I must admit this isn't a house I normally think of very often, but I saw a photo on tumblr that made me click through to see the whole collection, and I'm so glad I did.  Can you tell I'm going though a big girly phase at the moment?

wearing...







A few outfit selfies, plus a DIY necklace I made recently... Still failing to wear any shoes aside from my two favourites- I'm well and truly smitten.

P.S. Had a bit of a name change- not sure how long I'll be sticking with this one, but inspiration is resolutely refusing to strike.

Two Weeks in September

There's been something of a glut of 60s themed editorials recently, but most of them seem to fall a bit flat, looking a bit too stylised and glossy, and thoroughly modern.  This one somehow feels just right.  From UK Vogue, October 2014.

Note to self...

l-r: In with the old, Topshop x2, ebay
to wear more jewellery!  A quick tidy of my bedroom turned up this lot, languishing unloved and forgotten in various boxes.  I'm officially banned from leaving the house without some form of adornment from hereon in.

Cheap thrills

Just thought I'd share a couple of new buys that were beyond affordable, yet have instantly become my new favourites.  I definitely needed something to cheer up my wardrobe from end of season fatigue, considering I'd largely failed to buy much for summer this year.  As it's very nearly September, it feels too late to make any serious purchases, but it's still quite hot here, so this is what I picked up to get me through the next few weeks until the temperature drops...





The perfect classic espadrilles, bought for 4€ from a supermarket, and the exact tan sandals I've been after for a couple of years, handmade in Greece, and costing only 20€.  I've worn either one or the other since buying them, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Summer outfits...

Outfit photos are a bit of a rarity at the moment, mainly because I've been wearing things that are more functional than they are interesting, due to both the heat and the fact that I tend to just throw on whatever I find before me as I run off to work.  This is pretty much everything I've worn in the last month or so that I've even remotely liked:
 
dungarees- Primark, top- Zara, espadrilles- Lidl

dress- Topshop via ebay, boots- Uterque
top- Oysho, shorts- Whistles, shoes- Park Lane via Asos

top- H&M, skirt- Topshop, sandals- local shop

Once more this year, I've failed to assemble much of a summer wardrobe, so I've been relying on my tried-and-true favourites, with the odd addition in the form of espadrilles and sandals...
