blouse, new look; faux chanel bracelet, market stand in london.

I almost feel like I'm posting this just for the sake of posting today haha. I wasn't going to do an outfit post originally, I wanted to do a "hair tutorial" but my photos weren't clear enough for that really and I couldn't handle the trauma of making a video again! All my outfit photos came out too dark, not in focus, I looked miserable (just because its so cold today!) and it was just a fail basically!

I wore my sheer blouse from New Look again today. God I love this top too much! I just put a pair of leggings with it, nude underwear and a ton of accessories because erm, 9am starts at Uni are not my friend. I didn't even get out of bed until 8am aha, hi lazy student! I think the ensemble looks okay though, despite my mix and match gold and silver jewellery, which I usually deem as a no-no. I bought this faux Chanel charm bracelet about four or five years ago, and think it's just adorable, I'm not a fan of rip-off designer things, because most of the time it looks really obvious, but with something like this, I guess it is just about okay (: Wore about 5 rings as well, and my ever trusty Golden Snitch necklace!

For the record, my hair is plaited around the back of my hair today, like in this photo below! How cute is this hairstyle?! Quite tricky when your arms just won't reach around your head though...

  3. That outfit is so simple and gorgeous! I really need one like that but I'm nervous to wear sheer shirts because I have big knockers and gahh I don't know! Haha. Anyway, the bracelet is gorg. And you must just look so freaking pretty with your hair like that!

  8. I love the bracelet. And honestly I always think fake Chanel and Chanel look-a-like clothing is fine because the great woman herself was fine with it and felt flattered by it. She would let artists into her shows when everyone else banned them.

  10. I tried that shirt on the other day, but for some reason something just wasn't right about it. Made me sad because it's SO pretty :(
    Wish I had the patience to try and style my hair like that! My arms get tired then I give up

  15. Gorgeous outfit, bet the plait looked lovely! I really want a sheer blouse from new look allready! What is the sizing like? xx

  16. Well I'm sure your hair tut would have been amazing :)
    Cute outfit though, the shirt is just gorgeous- and so easy to wear in different ways (which you're ace at doing anyway)
    I used to be a bit of a gold/silver combo no no-but I'm starting to allow it in certain areas now!

  17. Love the sheer blouse and bracelet; it doesn't look tacky so it's good in my books! :)

    The hairstyle is so beautiful also.. I should opted for something like this as its so windy here atm!

  18. Ohhh now I want to see hair pictures! I love doing plaiting - when I was revising for my last exam I learnt how to do a plait starting on one side of the head and finishing on the other. I was procrastinating! That top is lovely too.

  19. Bee: I think it's really cute! Especially with a sneaky few Crown and Glory pieces whacked in (: Will try harder to get photos/tutorial video over the weekend though. Eeek me too, they're absolutely killing me at the moment, I love my bed too much!

    Harriet: Thanks lovely! It's probably my favourite piece in my wardrobe at the moment! x

    Aimee: Simple was all I could manage this morning ;) Oh you should try one on before you buy. They're surprisingly really flattering! N'awh thank you Aimee, was a bit of a mess today, chapped lips, ever so slightly windswept, didn't blend my eyeshadow out properly...!

    Lyzi: ): I'm sure there could be a way around it Lyzi! Hope your packing is going well <3

    Heather-Louise: My hair's grown out so much recently, its the only way to make my hair look presentable recently, what with my lack of straighteners etc.! xxx

    Ellio100: Thank you! I think I will film/take photos of a tutorial over the weekend if I get some Uni work done (: xx

    Gem: Me too! Messy is the operative word when it comes to my hair/wardrobe/style! xxx

    Paula: Thank you!

    Vicky: You could perhaps start the plait a little further up? (: Thank you Vicky! x

    Kayl: Thank you! I'm usually not a fan of Chanel knock-offs, but a simple bracelet is fine in my eyes. The day I am able to buy my own 2.55 will be the greatest day of my life! xxx

    Jennie: N'awh I bet it looked lovely on you! My hair is basically all the same colour and horrid condition so it doesn't look too great in photos ): Thank you! I think you do too ;) xx

    Hannah: I tried it on, but it didn't fit me properly, so I went all out and got one 4 sizes too big which is perfect! Such a pretty blouse (: Just noticed you're on the same Uni course as me, just a year ahead :O x

    Stacey: Thank you! Haha my fringe doesn't clip back anymore ): Slowly but surely getting my "old hair" back though, yusss! xx

    Sarah: Thank you! I shall try and get one up over the weekend or sometime next week (: x

    Helen: It's so cute! Nothing like a messy bun when all else fails ;)

    ScienceGeek: Thanks lovely xx

    Monika: Thank you (: I'm still gutted I didn't get any decent photos! The sizing is a bit off... At the moment I'm a UK 6/8, but bought this in a UK size 14! I like an oversized fit though, although I noticed the shoulders are a tight fit. xx

    Steph: Thank you Steph <3 Going to re-attempt a tutorial over the weekend! I'm such a sucker for reworking outfits, I just can't afford hundreds of new pieces! Mm me too, I think in small doses is acceptable, and it depends how shiny the golds/silvers are! xxx

    Katie: Thank you! I wasn't sure when I bought it, check that blingy Chanel logo out ;) x

    Sarah: Eee I'm going to do my best to shoot one over the weekend (: I like plaiting too, such a cute, simple style. xx

  21. haha, don't you just love knockoffs? <3

  22. I need that blouse, <3 it so much!xx

  23. I'd LOVE to see a tutorial for that hairstyle, especially if it works in shorter hair like yours. I've got a bit of length now but I have shorter layers so it's difficult to do a plait.

    Love your blouse too! xx

  24. Alyssa: Thanks lovely! I want another similar blouse but with a print (:

    Kat: Haha they're a bit hit and miss though I find! Little pieces like bracelets are just about acceptable, but I'm not a fan of obviously fake bags at all. xx

    Holly: Apparently they've sold really well, so get down to NL asap if you're after one! xx

    Charlene: Thank you! I'm going to make the most of the weekend and film one tomorrow while I have the flat to myself I think (: xx

  25. This blouse is so pretty. There's a few colours though and I'm tempted to get them all but that would probably bankrupt me! And the faux Chanel bracelet looks so pretty! I never mix silver and gold either but I've seen few photos of people who just throw on any old mix of rings and it looks really good, I think so I may give that a go! x

  26. Jade: Thanks Jade! :D I'm quite tempted by the navy blue one but they're all sold out in my store. Mm me too, I don't tend to put much thought into what finishes my jewellery are, I just about managed to pull it off in this post, but on other days I end up taking some of it off! x

  27. Oh wow, that bracelet is gorgeous!
    Very jealous - what a find!
