Online shopping….

Im a huge fan of online shopping, you could say it was a slight addiction of mine one of these sites , a credit card a cuppa tea and a cinnamon swirl and im all set to shop !

Online shopping is a lot easier than walking round window shopping because you haven’t been paid yet , or when you do get paid the thing you wanted is sold out and your hunting for that last size 8 ! (that i never find …hello size 18 ? )

Apart from the great but usual ASOS, Topshop and Urban outfitters which are easy accesible to me  i have been on the hunt for other shops and one of my friends allways comes to me for “new” online shops, I’ve found so here we go :

Bitching and Junkfood

Not only does the online store  remake vintage garments into something edgy and exciting ( i have the bitchy cross shorts love them !) they have a selection of vintage pieces as well as a weird but wonderful accessories line of head dresses, bracelets and ear cuffs not for the faint hearted mind ! You can find the amazing pieces online at bitching and junk food or urbanoutfitters.com

 

So wanted these shorts !!! sold out : (

NastyGal

One of my favourite shops but it breaks my heart when i see the custom fees !! I do own a beautiful top from here though black knit and all  shredded at the back  ! Any how not only do i love the styling,  models, photographs and website layout there stock is to die for !

I dont know who the model is but she my favourite she has been on asos and catalogs anyone no her name ????

So much choice from Jeffery Campbell shoes , vintage beauties and new brands you can lose hours just browsing !!!

Free People

I havnt oreded anything from this online store yet based in Philadelphia
as i have never finished looking at everything , there is just so much to see and there jewellery and shoes are amazing ! If your after something laid-back and unique its Definitely worth a look !

UNIF

Dont no much about the brand apart from its based in California and thier video look book is making me want to move there asap  ! but it does feature on NastyGal and again more great images !

Well theres just a few online shops to drool at  and just to let you know im setting up my own  : )

Its only through ebay as im not that technical with the whole website designing ! ive got a bunch of old beauties and vintage pieces that need to be cleared out once ive photographed them ill post the link  !

Happy shopping !

Spring / summer …..

Vintage vest cow Birmingham,   leopard print earrings topshop. Casio watch Ebay

Oh how the winter days are slowly fading away and i am one that cannot wait for the day to leave my house with out a jacket !! Heres a few of my high street and internet favourites that Ive been window shopping in .

Asos has some great spring/summer clothes and they always style the models well and student discount at 20% is even better.

Nasty Gal i adore this shop yet the shipping cripples me some great looks to get some inspiration from though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Urban Outfitters a few summer pieces mainly casual that you can team with shorts instore is better that the website.

Aldo …. the shop that allways has a size 3 left  ! and i can see these shoes lasting me all summer and maybe in my wardrobe by the end of the week !

And last but never least Topshop  florals, silk and fringed im loving it all ! My empty purse is the reason Ive been avoiding the store in my town the last couple of weeks as the window shopping becomes depressing when you see beautiful bikinis and tiny dresses  hitting the shelves and im still wearing a cardigan and a leather jacket to go out the house  !

But ill bide my time till the student money rolls in and i can treat my self and hopefully the sun will keep on shining and warming up!

Lost in London..

London ….ive been wanting to go for ages and whena trip came up at uni i jumped at the chance…Getting up at 5:30 am was not great though we went to the tate modern and the national portrait gallery but i will post about that sepretly as there is so many pictures to share…

So i got to go to Harrods and was very impressed with the window displays and then went to camden market , i would love to say i got to brick lane… but i never seems as people in london cant give directions ? So we got lost and my friend got half his body trapped in the tube (You would have had to been there bless him it was comical )… then we got the tube and a taxi to find the Marc Jacobs store which took forever but in the end brought some goodies and treated my self in camden market..: )

The bird is chippy… he likes noodles  : )

Theres me in my fur hat keeping warm in camden market… There was so much more to see and buy … I cant wait to go back and maybe then i will find brick lane !!

I will post the beautiful art works up soon and my beauties i purchased  but untill then sleep is needed last week of uni and i have one more piece of work to hand in !

Goodnight ! x

Foxy …..

I have a new obsession …. and its all to do with foxes, dont get me wrong  i saw one in the local park not long ago at something like 12am and it scared the shit out of me …it just stared at me as i walked quickly on the path … but i watched fantastic mr fox the other day (…again  i love the film )and then noticed how much these little furry rodents are all over the place !

1st day of christmas

Woooooo 1st of december and the snow is falling and this year i am fully prepared with a variety of thick coats, cosy hats and thick tights ! The only thing i need is some practical gloves, when you have a touch screen phone and a slr camera your freezing your hands the majority of the day … so no photos of the snow yet but i am going to do my christmas shopping this weekend in Birmingham at the German Christmas market  cant wait !

Well my boyfriend has started his shopping all ready and i have lots of lovely things but these beauties i think any girl would like to see in thier christmas stocking or by the tree  !

new hat ?

I had the pleasure of going shopping with the other half this week and did a spot of shopping where i brought this hat i love it everyone has the ones with the “flaps” so i wanted something different.

( silk shirt vintage flee market birmingham. Leather skirt vintage store manchester  , hat tkmax ,belt primark  , bonjour ring  asos )

(My favourite necklace in my jewellery box right now is this little typewriter  from topshop )

As you can see my flowers have died im not just lazy and not thrown them away they are there for a reason one so my boyfriend can see how ugly they are and go and buy me some new ones … ( this didnt work … he didnt buy me any dam it )

And the other as im working on a project at the moment n photographed them .

i have so much work on right now and christmas is only round the corner which means full time hours at work with angry customers and walking home in cold winter nights.

But at least i have my bottle of baileys at home to pour in my hot chocolate !

Im off to lunch now n a spot of shopping i shouldn’t but hey my lectures were cancelled today what better way to celebrate but to shop !
