A Girl Like You

“You’ve made me acknowledge the devil in me,
I hope to god I’m talking metaphorically...”

This post’s TUNE is by Edwin Collins.  This song was released in 1995, I know this because I had a greatest hits tape (yes thats right, a tape) for this year.  It’s a tune I can never get bored of, considering it doesn’t ever seem to have been a massive hit that people remember I really think that this song is so so good!  You can check out the video here, and visit the website here.

Pip pip...

Corduroy Trousers: TOPSHOP (£7.00, sale)
Moccasins: Primark (old)
Top: Tesco (old)
Necklace: Dorothy Perkins (old)
Watch: Urban Outfitters (old)
Satchel: Camden Market (old)
Jacket: Primark (old)

Can you Adam and Eve it, I picked these trousers up for just seven whole pounds in the TOPSHOP sale, I didn’t even know you could buy anything in there for that price anymore!  Admittedly, despite the fact that they are a tad too small for me (my boyfriend commented that they looked like children’s trousers before I proceeded to squeeze myself into them), I still think they look good and were a bargain!  

Considering these are a size 8 they certainly don’t feel like it.  Is it me or is TOPSHOP sizes like one size too small, especially with trousers.  Has anyone found this?  I am generally a size 8 no matter where I go, but in Topshop, I do feel like a 10 fits me better, or sometimes even a 12.  There’s obviously nothing wrong with being these sizes, but it’s just frustrating when you know that it clearly isn’t right.  But like I said, maybe it’s just me... 

This top is courtesy of my sister, she was having a clear out of her wardrobe and I rescued this top along with a few other things.  I think I may have a problem... secret hoarder anyone?

I think I look quite coordinating in this outfit haha, everyone loves a bit of green, well at least I do, happy days.

Hope your all having a lovely week!

See ya,

  3. Great rescue, the top is lovely. I am such a horder too, really need to get rid of most of my clothes as I never wear them...but then I day. haha I feel the same about clothes, I feel like I am a different size in every shop which is frustrating I agree as you never know what is going to fit and what isn't. What a bargain at £7 - they look cute rolled up :-)
