Last Day of Magic

"Last day of magic, where are you?
A little tornado, a little hurricane roar..."

This post's TUNE comes from The Kills, you can see the youtube video for this song here.  If you've never heard of The Kills before, then you my friend have been missing out!  With one of the coolest front ladies in town and the edgy dark lyrics, why wouldn't you love them, I know I most certainly do!

So yup, please check out The Kills!

Anywho, on to the outfit post...











Leather Jacket: New Look (Old)
Skirt: Primark (Old)
Cardigan: Primark (£5.00)
Collar Shirt: New Look (Old)
Shoes: Tesco (Old)
Bag: Miss Selfridge (Old)
Scarf: Dorothy Perkins (Old)
Bowler Hat: H&M (£12.99)





I knew I really wanted a bowler hat because quite frankly, I think that they are the bees knees and can make any outfit look too cool for school.  So with some money in my purse I set off in search of one.  Now I don't know if I have a bit of a weird head (it is quite likely givent the brain it contains) but all the hats I tried on (namely the ones in topshop) seemed to be too big, and to be honest with you, too expensive!  So I was thrilled when I found one for just £12.99 in H&M, and being the excellent shop that they are had the hat in different sizes, so mine now fits perfectly!  I do love H&M for having different sizes in accessories, I presonally have child sized wrists so the fact I can actually buy bracelets in here which do not fall off my arms is amazing!  All hail H&M!

My skirt was a bargain a few months back at just a fiver in Primark sale, the cardi, again just a fiver, and the collar is from an old top that I skillfully (not so skillfully) managed to burn a hole in, fortunately, I can still use it for stuff like this :)

Let me know what you think, does the hat work

Peace and Love People,

  1. What a fab outfit - you look lovely! The bowler hat is awesome, really suits you. I've been coveting the black one in Topshop but might have a wander to H&M if it's cheaper. I totally agree, the Kills are so good! I would love to see them live :-)

  8. I love this outfit, I feel like the red and leopard print combination almost shouldn't work but actually really does! And I'm just a big hat fat in general so you had me sold at the off.

  9. The hat is so kooky! I love this look, I thought this was a jumper all of it's own... would never have guessed it was a little Primark cardy with a collared top!

    Pretty! :-)

  60. I absolutely love the Kills! They're one of my favourite bands and I actually think that Last Day of Magic is my most-played song of theirs. Great minds think alike ;) I really like how you've paired the leopard print with the Peter Pan collar here- it looks great!
