California Dreamin’

10 Apr
coachellaa
There’s a lot of things that, as a student, I can’t afford. And apart from steak and champagne, the most upsetting thing beyond financial reach is a golden ticket to Coachella. Every year since I could discern that the Californian desert line up was the ultimate music amalgam to ever exist, I’ve wanted to go. Tomorrow marks the beginning of the first weekend, and again, I won’t be there.
However, I am absolutely adamant that one day, I will. So for that day, here is a collage of the outfits I would wear in that desert among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.

THE DIRTY, PRETTY LITTLE THING IS CHANGING TO A NEW URL OVER THE WEEKEND, WATCH OUT FOR THE BIG CHANGE OVER!

Things I Literally Need : Sheinside LAME Sweater

26 Mar

lame

Alongside The Burger Connoisseur, “Things I Literally Need” is a new and permanent instalment on my blog.

The thing with fashion is that it is necessary. Sure, you could walk round in bare foot, but it’d hurt right? So we wear shoes. And the truth of the matter is, why would you wear shapeless, shuffly flats when there are things such as Isabel Marant Dicker boots and Valentino RockStud flats available for our feet? Food for thought.

This sweater is from Sheinside.com and it’s only £11. That, my friends, is a week of okay food for one, or a lifetime of being able to wear a sweater that says ‘Lame’ on it in inappropriate situations (such as exams). Your choice.

OOTD – DIY and Wolf Online

25 Mar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs a very strict rule, I am not a DIY’er. I am intensely clumsy and should not therefore, be allowed in the presence of scissors. This weekend though, I approached the scissors, picked them up, and actually managed to use them without drawing blood. By DIY’ing the old jeans that I have come to hate, I have turned them into a ripped magnificence and it feels as though I have new jeans, which is great because I am feeling the student poverty hard at the moment.

Will you please take a look at the rings I’m wearing and gasp as is only appropriate in the presence of such beauty. They are from Wolf Online, which is a home made and beautiful boutique all the way over in Australia. The delivery is free WORLDWIDE and the prices are extremely decent anyway. Safe to say, I love them to pieces and I’d be really disappointed if you didn’t go and check them out right now here.

I Woke Up Like This

11 Mar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When you wear a T-shirt that brashly says “I Woke Up Like This”, you’d think that it would be the focal point of your outfit. But I hate rules, so I threw out the rulebook and on this coat. Oh, this coat. It’s from ASOS but I got it on eBay which of course means that I got it half price. It’s in mint condish apart from a rip on the inner lining which no one will ever see unless they get up close and personal to my armpit.

I think what this T-shirt says more than anything is: hey, I rock and I don’t care if you’re giving me weird evils because of it. I think all clothes should say this. Wear what you want guys, you look fab. Even if maybe okay perhaps you didn’t wake up like this.

OOTD : Burberry Cowgirl

7 Mar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She’s a silver lining, lone ranger riding through an open space.

This is one of my favourite ever outfits. It’s like watching The Wolf of Wall Street, eating pizza followed by a cheesecake from the Church Inn in Mobberley and then going and getting cocktails in London with the Arctic Monkeys.That’s how this outfit makes me feel. You can keep your ketamine, because I’m a fashion junkie.

The shirt is an ideal dupe of the IT piece of Burberry FW13 and it was so cheap from the amazing American site: Persun Mall. The shoes? Not as expensive as they look because they were just FIFTEEN pounds from H&M. And that hat. Oh, the hat. If I could write sonnets then all fourteen lines would be dedicated to it. It’s ideal and it’s a tenner. Get it here.

Have a great weekend lovers, and for the love of God see Wolf of Wall Street if you still haven’t.
