Fix up Look Sharp

“I got the big beat,
I hear the sound”

This post’s TUNE comes from Mr Dizzee Rascal.  Who doesn’t love a good bit of rap! Especially a good British one!  Back in the day when this tune first come out Dizzee was more of a rarity as a British rapper, however, now days he’s joined by plenty of other UK talent, Tinie Tempah being a fine example!  Anywho, this song is just so cool, and since then Mr Rascal has kept his standards very very high, all of his songs could have easily been used here but I thought I’d start with one of the ones that began it all!   
You can check out the video here, and visit his website here.

Oooooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Lets have a look at an outfit is it?!

Someone loves posing....

 Dress: TOPSHOP (£18.00, sale)
Shoes: Internacionale (old)
Tights: Primark (old)
Necklace: Primark (£2.00)
Jacket: New Look (£32.00, sale)
Faux Fur: HandM (old)
Bag: Miss Selfridge (old)

This was one of those few items I found in the sale.  You know when it's an actual bargain because I wanted this dress before when it wasn't in the sale, and not just because it was cheap which is the normal reason I buy something in the sales!  Anywho, I love the lace detail and the full length sleeves, it's so pretty :)

My new necklace goes lovely with it, and just so I can go outside and not freeze to death I put my leather jacket on top.  The faux fur is something I bought from HandM a while ago and just haven't worn, the poor thing has been sitting pretty in my wardrobe all this time!  It goes beautifully with my jacket and keeps me lovely and warm!

So they were right, it's snowing!  It seems like everyone is on a snow day today apart from me, one of the drawbacks of living so close to work I guess boooooo!  Although I am determined to go for a little walk and enjoy the snow later!  Not just nice but neccessary!  I love it when it snows, everything looks so pretty!

Are you on a snow day today?  Come on, make me jealous :( haha

Bewsh,

  18. Fix Up Look Sharp is one of my favourite songs I always listen to it when I'm feeling nervous about something and it makes me feel cooler :) although admitting that makes me feel less cool.
