"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

Bonjour from across the pond!!

I type this to you in my boyfriends new home for a year in the South of France! Toulouse, to be exact.

We arrived on Wednesday to settle Fray in for his new adventure at Airbus and it has been a crazayy few days. However, we've got over the worst bit of having no tea for two days and no fridge so onwards and upwards now.

Finally we got chance to have a touristy moment yesterday afternoon and wondered around, with me of course spending a little, not much changes even when I leave the country clearly. Anyway, what better time to do a little outfit post..


Outfit Details:
Sunglasses: Christian Lacroix, in Tk Maxx
Necklace: H&M
Bag: Aldo
Top: H&M
Kimono: Ebay (then DIY'ed, removed the sleeves)
Belt: Next
Skirt: Topshop

(excuse the bare-footedness, my flipflop's were not a friendly choice for wandering around)

Au revoir (for now)!

Dippin' and a-dyin', eBay style

It's always the same, I go on eBay to sell some bits and pieces and I end up watching a zillion things, get out bid on things that were destined to be mine in the last few seconds am then become so frustrated I vow never to be lured in again... 5 minutes later I'm knee deep in another bid war approaching the vital 10seconds remaining mark.

God help me, out of all the destined pieces, I ended up with one thing. One. It's a cruel, cruel game. 
Anyway, I'm not bitter at all, I'm more then happy with my bargain purchase and it's something I've been wanting for a while!  Finally a long maxi organza dress shirt.  I found a seller, names shall not be named, but with several lovely bits that I was determined to snap up.

I finally got this long purple dip dye number just in time for the warming weather again, so as I had a day off work and time to get my nails done and have lunch with the boyfriend I thought what perfect time to wear it for its new foster home! 

Teamed up with my Levi shorts, also a Ebay buy from last year, my trusty Topshop gladiator boots and Topshop Cami. Sunglasses, Ray Ban, Necklace Dorothy Perkins and bag River Island.

It's been a while since a little outfit post up here, and I really have not taken full advantage of working in a studio for the past 5 months! So today after work I got the lovely Cassie to snap away for my latest post.

I bought this mono jumpsuit in Topshop the other week and it is SO comfy to wear, it's literally like being in your Pj's all day!

It's current stock at www.topshop.com 
For £38 I think it's a pretty good catch and it also comes in other variations online! Go check it ladies..

I love the back detail with just a single little button to fasten you in, it's not at all restricting just a little irritating to button up with acrylic nails! 

Jumpsuit: Topshop
Necklace: Dorothy Perkins
Boots: Topshop
