It all started with pulling on my old faithful H&M treggings, even though they were lifted from the dirty clothes pile mounting up on the floor. The treggings had been consigned to this pile, even though I'd only worn them once this week, because they have little mud marks up the back - I kick horrible black muddy mulch up because I walk stupidly. Oh and I dropped a bit of my dinner on them near the top the night before... but like a true student I wasn't going to let this put me off. I had to wear the treggings because I've thrown all my tights out (growing my nails seemed like a great idea, but the damn things snag on all my tights and create great gaping holes and ladders), and its waaay to cold to go bare legged.
I hadn't a clue what I was going to wear with these treggings, and was feeling particularly uninspired by my wardrobe, I really wanted to wear and dress, and my head was being stubborn and wouldn't pick anything else out. But I did know I wanted to try out my new red lipstick. I've never worn red liptick before, except when I was about 5 and used to lick red smarties and wipe them over my lips, but I don't think that counts? Is just me that used to do that? Anyway, this is when I started to go a bit wild, like a kid in a sweet shop, I frantically rooted through my draws and jumper boxes.
|I'm a H&M mannequin actually. Shirt, Jumper & Treggings, all H&M. Socks - Primark, Shoes - Kandee, Earrings - Sportsgirl, Lips - 'Kiss' No. 41 GOSH.|
I start grappling again... oh I want to wear these new earrings, they're so pretty, and have red on them, that would go nice with the lippy, but wait, focus, earrings arn't going to help with the naked top half dilemma. Now I want to wear a bow in my hair, a pink one, like Minnie is wearing on the jumper. But I don't have a pink scarf, poo. Ohhh you know what I reeeally want to wear, my NEW SHOES!! But I can't wear my new shoes, I'm going shopping in town for an afternoon, not going for a night on the town. The shoes are really not appropriate. But they're new... and soooo pretty...Ok, so unfortunatly I didn't actually wear the wedges, I put on my brogues for shopping, but look how pretty they are!!! And how fun and crazy is this outfit!? The shoes just make it!
|Yes that's a limited edition Barbie doll dressed as Elle Woods from Legally Blonde 2, yes it's mine. I think its cool.|
I introduced it to the pictures for a childlike quality like the lolly, but then I didn't really know what to do with her.
The good news for you is... if you check out the beautiful website there's a sale on, and you can get these babies for a tenner!! Plus some other brilliant bargains! Hurry, they only have limited sizes left! I freaking love their sweety related names, if only they had the 'bubble gum pump' or 'fruit salad peep toe' in my size!! And I'm loving the 'cherry bombs'!What do you think of my 'Smartie Tube' outfit?!
PS. I LOVE red lips, but the colour rubs off everywhere :-( Is this me just being special? How do I get it to stay put and stop leaving red smudges on my hands etc!? I'm worried I'll accidently smear it all round my face!!
PPS. I bought 6 pairs of tights in town, so I can go back to wearing clean clothes. haha.
