I have just bought...

A kimono jacket from Topshop. I'm not supposed to be buying much but I got staff discount so it isn't too much. Also I am sick of ordering dresses etc off the internet and finding they don't fit when they arrive so this is a very safe bet. I know it will look fine and I can wear with high waisted shorts and heels for a night out or in the day to uni. Also I am liking kimonos at the moment and this won't be the last one I will be buying!

The Art of Procrastination

I'm putting off my work. Again. Here is an outfit post as I haven't posted one for aaaages.

...and there are my mustard boots in better quality.

I need to start bringing my camera to Uni so I can take pictures whilst I'm here and blog. These pictures are taken with an App on my iphone called Hipstamatic and it allows you to take pictures in a kind of polaroid format and switch between lenses/flashes and film. The first image is of a lovely purse I bought today in the best thing about Huddersfield - Magic Vintage. It's a tartan design and is big enough for all the rubbish I throw in my purse. I had my ASOS delivery today - the cream dress pictured in my ASOS post, Henry Holland suspender tights and some black boots. I've been on the hunt for boots for ages and these are not the perfect ones but they're good for real leather and £24 is a bargain. They're sat alongside my Office mustard brogue boots which are my favourites. I just need to wear them more. The last image is of my most recent obsession - not drying my hair properly and putting it up in a high bun which makes me happy as I don't have to spend time doing my hair. Plus it has just been bleached more so is pretty dry. I love the effect these images have.

This year I will...

...Take more photos with my many different cameras. I also want to start using disposable cameras on nights out etc... as I love the effect they give and my hand held digital camera is pretty poor. It was actually Company magazine this month which has inspired me to get my cameras out more as they have a feature on three different photographers who are of course ultra-cool and have worked alongside Rankin and work for Lomography. Have a look at Elizabeth Angela Johnson's blog. Gorgeous shots. Brilliant inspiration. Click here.

I hate to admit but...

...I quite like Fearne Cotton's outfit in this picture. I'm not 100% on the hat but I love how the colours match and she is wearing the same boots as I have but in a grey colour. Mine are mustard, although at first I was a bit iffy on the colour, they do actually go with most of my wardrobe. I'll include them in an outfit post in the near future.

ASOS styling.

I've just been drawn into the ASOS sale and as much I am trying to resist, my shopping bag already has 3 items in. All pretty cheap, but at a time when my bank isn't in the best state, I shouldn't be looking at all! Ahh well. I've noticed the styling on some of the outfits and to be honest thats what has made me look at the items even further. It's a breath of fresh air when you compare these images to the lifeless mannequin shots which Topshop uses. The bobble hat look is my favourite and I intend to be wearing my bobble hat a lot more (even if my Dad does say I look like Wheres Wally).

I currently have the cream button up shirt dress in the basket - at £16 it's a bit of a bargain!

Happy New Year.

I've always wanted a pair of sparkly NYE glasses...
