Just another girl who is going to rule the world.

Ok so I am finally getting over my hangover from Friday night, yes you read that correctly my hangover has lasted 3 days. Its tragic and wrecked my diet as all I have is eat junk food in an attempt to feel normal. Really must get into the swing of healthy living again tomorrow.

But here is another attempt at an outfit post. Again it is in my room which is again cluttered. I feel a tad embaressed asking my mum to take pictures of me while I pose and I can never position the camera right so that I can get a whole outfit shot. But I am trying, hopefully Ill get it right! I would be greatful for any tips! I also feel ever so awkward posing, not at all a natural. I envy anyone who can work the camera!

This is what I wore out Friday night, I had to go to work the next day on four hours sleep which was not fun at all.

Please ignore the dress hanging up ready for work the next day!

Just for clarification the bra is a nude colour, not white! I dont want people to think I wear white bras under black, its my pet hate haha! But I needed a strapless bra and its the only one I had!

What I wore:
One armed rouched body - Next
Tulle skirt - Next
Tights- Primark
Cameo braclet - Market
Shoes - Next

This is one of my best friends who I went out with. Isnt she beautiful? Its always a lethal combination when we go out, our boyfriends panic! You always have to have a token wetherspoons toilet shot. I am looking extremely happy because I was on my second bottle of wine at this point! It ws starting to take effect!


November Purchases

So this week was my beloved payday, it took long enough. So of course I treated myself a little bit, im getting christmas presents too so im not being entirely selfish. Also now Ive laid them out ive noticed everything is black. I tend to stay away from black in the winter, I find it makes me even more gloomy.

Here are my beauties!

Black leather shorts - Topshop. I finally got these beauties ive been lusting over for 6 weeks. Never really had the money but I thought sod it this month, just have to not drink as much when I go out. I adore them, I have already found so much in my wardrobe to wear with them. I feel they may have to be surgically removed ill be wearing them so much.

Black faux suede wedges - New Look. These were a complete bargain, £18 with my student discount. I really needed a pair of new black shoes, I was wearing the same ones out time and time again feeling like a right old skank.

Black Satchel - Charity shop. I finally brought a satchel like I was banging on about in the last post. I was doing my daily visit after college to the local charity shop and grabbed it straight away. Its such a nice size to fit all my junk in and real leather for £6. How could you go wrong!

Black rose suspender tights - Next. Id had been waiting for these to come into our shop ever since I saw them in Look. We dont usually get the stuff in the magazine due to us not being a huge huge shop. I thought I might have to trek to London. But I spotted them last week and made sure I put some on hold. Im never very good for tights, only get one wear before my clumsiness rips a massive hole in them. I try to only buy Primark tights because then its not so much a waste of money. These were a fiver so its more than I usually spend but got staff discount which was a plus. Ive included a close up so that you can see the pretty rose detail.


Back to school

I have been productive today honestly, Ive completed a presentation for tomorrow and organised all my uni folders doing all the little fiddly bits. But that does not mean I havent been browsing the internet imagining what I would buy should I have the money. This seems to be happening rather a lot recently, I really dont know why I torture myself!
I adore Satchals, I dont have any admittingly but I love them nevertheless. Im really bad at buying bags, prefer to spend all my wages on dresses. The Mullberry Alexa is my favourite but alas the price just mocks me.
Ive found this one online at Esty by a seller called frenchenglish and fell in love.

Isnt it divine? I love the scalloped edges, it looks so romantic. I feel like I should be in an Enid Blyton book going to boarding school.The colour isnt the most practical but its so pretty! It will jazz up any outfit, adding a little pop colour. I like patent leather so much more than just normal leather, I think it looks more classy. I need it. At £65 its not too expensive but still its far too high for my delicate bank balance. I need to have a rumage around and figure out what to sell on ebay.
