Don't let the bells end

Ohh it's so sad when Christmas is over! But there's always New Years Eve to look forward to.

As seems to be tradition (for the last few years) I was ill over Christmas with a  horrible cold and spent most of Boxing Day and the days after on the sofa. But aside from that it was lovely and always great to spend time with family. My mum spoiled us as always (until we have kids of our own we will have stockings every year!) and I was chuffed to get a new vinyl player from my Dad, I've been looking for a decent one for months so my records will no longer just sit on the shelf. It's so much more satisfying to listen to old music the way it was originally played!

I love this white lace top, I picked it up for 6 quid when I was showing Little Wing at the vintage fair, I thought it was nice and Christmassy (in a non red and gold way...) but I teamed it with pleather trousers. Love my pleather.

Merry Glitter

The annual Glam Rock Christmas girls night out took place last weekend and what a fun night it was. The first hour or so of music was too good to be true, these are the best girls to dance the night away with.

My glitter shoes are Lucy's Mum's from back in the day! She was getting rid of them and I was lucky enough to get them! Dream shoe <3

I'm getting very excited for Christmas and New Year, starting with a trip to Winter Wonderland tomorrow. And hopefully more party times with these gorgeous girls in 2012 as in January I will be starting a new job at Topshop HQ (very excited..!) and my office will be right in-between these two gals, wahoo!

Little Wing at Vintagenie

Little Wing has been in hibernation for a little while but last weekend I got my arse in gear and took my stuff to the Vintagenie vintage and craft fair at the Penta Hotel in Reading. There were so many lovely traders there and Amy (my housemate) was doing some lovely vintage makeovers. It was quite a quiet day but all in all it was a really fun-fair! I picked up a couple of lovely vintage blouses too and it was another chance to wear my silver glitter boots!

Crystal skulls online soon x

I worry, worry, worry, worry

Loving this song at the moment. So feel good!

So last weekend we had a small gathering to warm the new house, it was fun hosting our first get together and I got to wear my new Frock and Roll shirt with the lace flares I got ages ago (somewhere in one of my posts) and haven't had a chance to wear.

I even baked! I do love baking when I can be bothered to get messy.

Bag lady

I am currently in love with this bag from Zara...

Monday, 28 November 2011


I kinda love what Stella McCartney is wearing to the British Fashion Awards tonight - it's crazy and pyjama like but it's so different from all the balls gowns and it looks SO comfy! Love the matching bag too. I'm a big fan of the jumpsuit, I have a loud patterened flared one I'm considering cracking out for our housewarming on Saturday...

Sorry about the watermark, I'm embarassingly quick on the mark here (thanks to Twitter I might add) so Getty Images is the only way!

Winter knits

It's more than a bit nippy now, so out come the chunky knits. I've resurrected this Whistles oversized Fisherman jumper from a couple of winters ago - it was way too long (once again due to my shortness) so, as seems to be habit of mine, I cut the bottom off! I've been bumming around the house in it but it also looks cute with a shirt poking out. Mmm cosy.

Sporting some great eye bags there... thanks cold.

I've just noticed in the corner you can see the scraps from my polka dot shirt cutting session...

I wanna Frock and Roll all night

I love this time of year, I feel so Christmassy already - although money will be much tighter this year now I have rent and all that malarky to pay, but I have started my Christmas shopping already. Hoping to fill my diary with trips to Winter Wonderland and the Christmas set up at the garden centre (which my Mum, Sister, Granny and I do every year to buy a new decoration) and some festive Christmas shopping evenings.

As yesterday was pay day, and the first month that a majority of my income was swallowed up by rent and bills, I softened the blow and treated myself to something from an amazing little vintage shop near where I live (Reading) called Frock and Roll. It's full of really well picked and very reasonably priced vintage items. Unfortunately I wasn't slim enough for the circle skirt and lace prom dress I was lusting after but I did buy an oversized mens spotty shirt which will will be great to wear with simple jeans and a red lippy. Although I have cut the bottom of it because it was too long to stuff into my jean.s

It's great for statement dresses and fun 60s pieces - there was a pink shift dress with a feather trim around the collar that I loved, it made me think of a 60s housewife wearing little slip on mules - but then when would I really wear it! If you're ever down in Reading I strongly suggest you pay them a visit!

(I don't mean to look like a ridiculous poser)

I am full of cold this weekend so I plan to stay indoors, watch a lot of TV, cook some peppers and start the work on reviving Little Wing for Christmas..

pip pip cheerio, I'll be back soon

Total blog neglect - been settling into the new house but we finally have working internet, wohoo! So much has happened in the last couple of weeks, crazy times to update on.

We're not crazy, we've moved into number 99 :P.

Worked this weekend at a firework and lazer show which was fun and festive, followed by a lovely meal with my parents. The rest of the weekend was spent snoozing on the sofa and in bed with my boyfriend watching Sons of Anarchy before he goes away again. Touring turns him into this...


ciao, ciao

Office Schmoffice

I still miss wearing whatever I want to work - my smarter corporate office dress code makes me feel very uninspired and leaves my wardrobe quite lonely!

Despite that I can indulge in my love for masculine trousers. I love these Zara trousers, I bought them in navy as well when they were in the sale. The cross over front is slightly Mr Darcy and they are a bit widening but they taper really nicely at the ankle. Today I teamed them with a loose vintage shirt and snake belt. I mainly wear flats because most of my shoes aren't 'corporate office friendly' but these are GOLD! I felt more like myself in this today.

Really love the new look book images from Planet Blue. I'd like to try the glitter eyes for a night out dancing, luckily my housemate is a make up artist so I can blag some help!
