Denim, Pearls and Disco Pants

Off to see the Cribs at New Slang tonight. Not actually listened to anything they've done since about 2006 but as long as I'm drunk with friends I don't care.

Fed up of my extensive yet boring wardrobe, I impulsively cut the sleeves off of this denim shirt. Luckily I don't think it turned out too bad, but I thought I should probably try and rock it tonight just so that it's not been totally wasted!

I'm so excited for my jam packed Jubilee weekend. Hopefully tonight will start it off perfectly. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow as I die of hangover in bed.
Have a good evening!

This Week's Top Buys: GOT THE JOB

I GOT THE JOB! Not the blog job that I posted the outfit for, but the boring-outfit, big, scary, media job that I was never going to get because I sucked in the interview and 800+ people applied for the position - that job.

I had pretty much forgotten about the whole experience and set my heart on the bag blog job which, despite being a pretty fab job, was basically unpaid, with only expenses and "pocket money" which wouldn't get me anywhere living in London.

On top of finishing uni and getting a job, this week has also been rad for my housemate who finished her degree yesterday and has just arrived home to tell me she's passed her driving test so congrats to her <3

Naturally, I celebrated in the only way I know how (other than getting really drunk). I shopped.

Tomorrow night is go!
Bralets - Primark; £4 each
Easy Jeans - American Apparel via Maudie's eBay; £20 (RRP £64)
Jumper - Topshop via eBay; £15 (RRO £26)
Breton top - Charity shop; £6
Pearl Collar - Primark; £6
Spike boots - Random Kingston shop; £30

I've been searching for a good breton top for ages since spilling bleach on my trusty old one which was inherited from one of my mum's '80s wardrobe clearouts. I've also been on the hunt for a good lace bralet without forking out Urban Outfitters prices. I'd have posted in a picture in the white one, but since it doesn't have padding I thought it would be a bit rude!

Mauds was selling her Easy Jeans and, as a sucker for anything American Apparel/high waisted, I put in a bid and now have one more pair to add to my collection.

But best of all are my new studded boots. Along with the rest of the world, I've been lusting after the spiked Jeffrey Campbell Lita's for as long as I can remember, but when I saw these babies for just £30 in a random shoe shop in town, I couldn't resist. I'd just got a job, just finished uni, and they were a bargain. Yeah, they're not real... But I'm still on a student budget!

Naturally, this has done wonders for my party plans:

  • New attire
  • Sexy shoes
  • Finished uni
  • Got a job
  • Vicky's finished uni
  • Vicky's passed her driving test
  • I found a sneaky bottle of wine left under a table at work
  • The Cribs are playing at New Slang

Bikini Day

I actually ended up spending most of yesterday sat on a roof in my bikini, but I'd taken some outfit photos and they probably shouldn't go to waste! I've actually managed to catch a bit of a tan as well which I'm happy about.

I only put on eyebrows, blusher and mascara for days in the sun so... that's why my face looks weird.

Hope you've all been enjoying the heat. I want it to last forever!

Tonight, We Are Young

Lauren got some pretty hilarious snaps from the boat party on Wednesday! Somehow I wasn't majorly hungover yesterday, but I think these photos perfectly reflect the progression of our intoxication.

By the way if you suffer seasickness, white wine isn't a good way to go.

I've just woken up after 10 hours sleep and no longer have a clue what to do with my days.

Not as drunk as I look... Yet

Degree = Done!

This evening I handed in my last ever piece of coursework. In other words, I've finished my degree! Terrifying. Had a lovely time on the boat last night, but now I obviously need to celebrate all over again tonight!

I spent the afternoon sat by the river enjoying the sun. It wasn't as enjoyable as it could have been with the weight of that last assignment looming over me but now it's done I want to sit in the sun forever.

Let's hope it lasts for the Jubilee weekend!

I don't even know when I last went out with bare legs but I am LOVING it! So much so that my day and night time outfits are barely going to change. In fact, swap the creepers for my tapestry babies and I'm set! It's too hot for anything else.
