For so long I have been searching for the perfect pair of leatherette pants. I thought I had found them when I saw the perfect pair of leatherette jeans on the H&M website - I ordered them in a size then as I knew their trews were small fitting. The thing is when they arrived I would have needed a pound of lard and forklift to get them over my fat ass...gutted.
After several more unsuccessful attempts in New Look, River Island and Primark, I had almost given up, resigned myself to the fact that leatherette pants and my disproportionately large bum were never going to give in, then I was saved by the miracle that is elasticated waistband. Thank you jeggings for making the waistband acceptable once again - the elasticated waistband made the £15 leather trousers from H&M fit perfectly.

Although they do squeak a bit when I walk, they are comfortable, look awesome and I love them...can't wear them enough!

Jumper, New Look
Trousers, H&M

What has been your favourite item of clothing recently?

Sorry I have been so bad blogging recently, I'm just so down on myself after finding my hours as a freelance writer reduced. I'm trying to get back to myself I swear.

There are two things in life that I love: a good scare and Ethan Hawke's lovely weird teeth. So when they both came together with the release of scarefest 'Sinister', I was pretty darn excited. The movie follows egotistical true crime author Ellison Oswalt (I know I don't know where they got that name from either) as he moves his family into a murder house to write his latest book on the previous owners who were all hung in the backyard. Apart from one of the children that is, who has since been missing.

It isn't long before Ellison finds some horrifying home movies in the attic, showing not only the fate of the family he is investigating, but also many other families, all linked by the mysterious 'Mr Boogie'. Instead of going to the police with his findings, Ellison keeps it secret hoping it will lead to success with his latest work, to see him once again in the spotlight he so craves. Of course, this was not a smart move and cue scares a plenty.

I have to say, I haven't seen a horror movie this good in a very long time - one moment I was on the edge of my seat, the next I was being scared right out of it. There was tension throughout the movie that grew and grew with each scene to the shocking conclusion. It is a must see for fans of the horror movie genre.

I leave you with the tantalizing trailer and a few words...Once you have seen him, nothing can save you!

Have any of you guys seen it, and what did you think?

I am so sorry bloggers, I know I have been terrible recently, I have just been so low on motivation recently after some problems with work. As a result I am rather far behind on outfit (and any other kind of posting). Being a long-time sufferer of depression I take set-backs really personally, letting them really hit my self esteem - luckily I have an amazing boyfriend and family, which help me get right out of that funk.

So anyway, excuses over - I promise I will really try to be better for you guys and get back to my blogging best. So this is a super cute little dress I bought recently in the Missguided sale - yes my addiction to leopard print is as strong as ever - it is just perfect for all occasions.

Dress, Missguided - same here.
Shoes, Matalan - same here.

How do you guys deal with blogging funk?

I don't want things to affect something that I really love so an advice would be appreciated.
