Bear Hug

“All you out there on the floor, gonna get you in my paws
And give you a bear hug”

This post’s TUNE comes from the 2 Bears.  I LOVE this song!  Of course, obviously I love every song I post about, I wouldn’t post about a song I hated obviously, but this one is particularly good.  If you like Hot Chip, and why wouldn’t you, they are amazing, then you will love the two bears (this may be because this is Joe Goddard’s side project who is part of Hot Chip).  I love a good electronic beat me, and this little beauty definitely meets, surpasses even, expectations.  I also love the whole piss take quality of this video!  Please check it out here, and have a little look at their website here.

Ooh, I want to give you a bear hug, but instead lets have a look at another outfit...




Dress: NewLook (£22.99)
Tights: Primark (£2.50)
Shirt: NewLook (old)
Bracelets: TOPSHOP/TOPSHOP/New Look (3.25/3.50/3.99)
Boots: NewLook (19.99)
Jacket: NewLook (Sale £32.00)
Bag: Peacocks (old)


As I mentioned before I’m rubbish in sales, however, recently I picked up this leather jacket which is actual leather(!!!) for just a measly 32 pounds, what a bargain.  It’s not your normal leather material, it looks a bit suedy, but I do love it, and considering it’s size 6 (always the same in sales), it actually fits like a glove (a tight glove, but all the same).  I also picked up this dress at the same time, it wasn’t on sale, which really seems to surprise sales assistants, but I really liked it so I was having it, end of! It’s a really weird material, feels weirdly like foam kind of stuff, very odd, but at least it shouldn’t go picky and we can have many happy years together.
I like the whole shirt under dress detail, it just adds a bit of extra edge to what could otherwise be a very plain look.  I stole this idea off my sister, so kudos to her, but all the same, I’m allowed to wear it to.
Let me know what you think of the look...

Brap Brap,
