Skinny Love

"Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt, we were never here"

This post's TUNE comes from Bon Iver.  Now I'm sure you know this tune from Birdy,but this was originally a song by these group of talented individuals.  This song is beautiful, I love the lyrics, I love the tune, I love his voice, I think that covers all bases to love!  You really need to check out this song, and I think that in some weird way it really suits my outfit... yes I am strange!

You can check out the song here, and take a wee peek at their website here.

Moving on...




Dress: TOPSHOP (old)
Necklace: TOPSHOP (£4.00, sale)
Tights: Primark (old)
Shoes: New Look (old)
Jacket: Primark (old)
Satchel: Camden Market (old)

I can't help it I must be some sort of horder, instead of throwing old clothes away I stick them under my bed, I can't bear to get rid of them... But it's lucky I didn't because when I rediscovered this dress the other day I was so happy.  It's about 5 years old now, wow, and has survived well, I absolutely love it.  I also enjoyed going shopping under my bed in all my old clothes, a heck of a lot cheaper than normal!!  Anywho, I love this dress with my lovely brogues (which are also kicking on a bit) as it gives it a bit of a cute geeky look, when is that ever not good?!?!

As usual, I'm a freezer, so a coat is essential, and this oversized boyfriend blazer works particuarly well.  Add to the mix my over used Camden Satchel and there you go.

I'm starting to realise I really need to buy some more bags, I seem to have a limited selection, I can't help it, I just really love my satchels so much that I just wear them with everything!  So anyway, a new bag is definitely on the shopping list!


See ya,

  16. I tend to keep things as well!
    Which is when my Mom told me that I should throw away things that have been at the back of my closet for at least 2 years. It works!
    love the dress though! Xx
