I always feel like my pictures are shit, I think its because there my own. I suppose I need to step p my game. Anyway had a beautiful Brazilian meal with my boyf today and this is what I wore. A 1950s vintage Chinese jacket which I got from a vintage stall in Afflecks Palace, Manchester. Although I decided to play it down the jacket will go with so many different patterns I know I can really play around with it. The shirt is from Zara however I got it from Oxfam, the skirt was in a Topshop sale, sunglasses are from ASOS and as for the brooch I think it was my nanas.
Has anyone been watching upstairs downstairs on BBC one? well the costume was absolutely amazing and it really inspired me especially with the hair and make up.
I did say I would do an outfit post today but yeah you don't even want to know what has happened!. my little pink sewing machine has chosen to be a little bitch and not work any more so yeah were currently not speaking. hopefully she will sort herself out or I will have to exchange the hoe for a Brother (ha).
I attempted to clean up my room/office/night club/prison etc etc. the cleaning was only moving piles of books about and paper so yeah I bored and decided to take a few really quick pictures as the rest isn't in good order. As I'm currently content with my wardobe, (it took a lotta get me there), i mean by this if I see any gorgeous little unique thing I'm not gonna walk past I am going to buy it but you know that goes without saying and holidays too thats just a rule you have to bring something back. But yeah other than that I am really happy with my wardrobe, although nothing goes and I have far too many coats (rail on the other side which you can't see yeah another rail). As you can see I am raring to go!.
On other daily boring news I have FINALLY decided what book I'm going to base my 'create two characters from a book you are well known with' for my university interview. I thought first of all its got to be a book more room for you, then I thought hmm book. And it struck me like Naomi Campbell, do a kids book!. So I pulled out one of my favourite books as a kid which I forgot the name of until I found it again...The Magic Costumes. I truly believe what people are meant to do is written for them (by themselves) when they were kids, when they were untainted and just liked what they liked. people should never loose sight of their inner child ever.

Happy holidays to you all! having a lovely day hope you all are too,well I suppose its ended for some. Been playing around with my new camera and its such an improvement from the old one which wouldn't and couldn't pick anything up. Any way heres some (well 3) of my christmas presents, most of them look like there from Easy Rider so its all good :). I was aiming for the whole hippie Tibetan look and yes I am eating christmas dinner like this.
The turban is from south africa which my mums boyfriend got me, the wooden animal necklace is my mums from acessorizse, big chunky silver necklace is from a really sweet shop in Lymm where I live which was a christmas present. As for the tassel burgendy top which as a christmas present, that is from TopShop I think its only available to buy from the website not to sure. The waist coat I made myself however its not finished as I need to add coin embellishment, I will be making one to sell however it will more than likely be different material. The boots are a christmas present and they are vintage from a seller on eBay and yes they are as amazing as they look. The mustard tassel top in the bottom picture was a charity shop find. Well I hope you all have enjoyed christmas and I will be doing a lot more outfit posts from now on :) .
