Coat, Dress and Shoes, Topshop; Heart print tights, Primark; Necklace, Vintage.

Wasn't going to post today, because it's all been a bit hectic, and my spare time has been spent watching The Big Bang Theory online, reading up about the globalisation of dress, researching the men's magazine market and eating. Of course. I popped into town before Uni today to hand in my job application at a store. Would rather not disclose that as I have no idea if they'll even take me on! I picked up a Sleek shimmer blush in Rose Gold, as seen on Lauren's blog - absolute LOVE. Go buy!

I wore my newest Topshop buy today, a toffee coloured Peter Pan tunic. It's exactly the same as my black one, only this is Petite, so it hangs much better on lil 5"1 me! I know this tunic is currently doing the rounds a bit in the blogging land, but it really is so easy to wear and surprisingly suits me, and once that happens, I tend to "stock up" a bit! I'm sure you all understand the feeling ;) The colour is absolutely perfect for what I had in mind for this season (matches the leaves and everything k!) and you all know I'm a sucker for a sweetly named item! It was -5°C when I left my flat this morning. -5°! Threw my pom pom coat on and hoped for the best, but it was still freezing ): Scarf/snood shall be promptly added tomorrow!

I came home from my photoshoot not long ago, hence the late post! I was interviewed and photographed as part of a feature about interning/gaining experience (i.e. the blog!) while at Uni and balancing it all. I'm a bit nervous about it being published! It's only for a Uni magazine though, and is distributed in Southampton, eek! Thank you all for the lovely Tweets, I was still a nervous wreck when I showed up, and v.embarassed to pose in front of the camera and other people haha!

P.S. Tomorrow I am posting a Fashion Q&A (: Keep the questions coming on Formspring though, I'm pre-writing them in advance while I have the time! xoxo

  34. I love this assemble - it's so chic! And the layering is perfect. You do have a lot of Topshop stuff I notice!! I can't blame you though, Topshop has really good stuff.

    I can't believe it's that cold over there!

  35. catita: thank you! i was, and still am, SO excited to have it in my coat collection! the pom poms and faux fur hood make me feel about 5 years old again!

    anewpairofvintageboots: thank you!

    daisy: awh thank you! i felt the whole ensemble needed some colour! oh gosh my topshop habit is really bad at the moment, i hardly bought any topshop over the S/S season, because i didn't like the pieces, but their new collection is a stroke of genius! haha yep, we're dropping into minuses already! ):
