I know I've been a terrible blogger of late, especially to all of my lovely girls, you know who you are. I guess I have just been focusing on other aspects of my life - work, new friendships and thinking about all the things I need before moving into the new place. On what planet is an iron a fun purchase? And thinking about decorating just sends me into panic mode, everytime I'm in the wallpaper section of B&Q I want to crawl into the foetal position, until someone picks for me.

I'm still in need of a new photographer so there are no new outfit posts for me to share with you right now, so i't time for another batch of pictures that were rejected because I hated my face. But, to treat you to something new, here is a picture of me, dressed as Jareth, The Goblin King from Labyrinth...just something I wear om your average Tuesday...

Seriously, I would wear this everyday - why did the pirate shirt ever go out of fashion? Anyway, back to the non-ridiculous (well mostly)...

Feeling a little like a French Prostitute in: Dress, H&M
Being annoyed by the wing in : Jacket, USC
Preppy Tee, Primark
Leatherette Trousers, H&M
Showing some cat lady chic in: Coat, Next
Tie Dye Dress, Primark
Leatherette Trousers, H&M
Satchel, Next.
Playing in the old back yard in: Dress, H&M
Leatherette Jacket, Matalan.
Jumper, Dorothy Perkins
Belt, New Look
Sucking in, wearing the world's tightest pants from H&M
Sporty Tee and Bag, Primark.
Leatherette Jacket, Matalan.
Any suggestions on where I could find a new photographer, and how many outfit posts do you dismiss?

  1. Love your outfits as always! Could you maybe get a tripod, if you haven't already? I know that could be useful for when you don't have a photographer! xx

  2. Omgosh! That first snap is everything haha. :D Love all the layering in casually windswept. :) I hate A LOT of my photos. I take hundreds and only use 3. I probably only have 1 or 2 I've never posted, I always force myself to use them, even if I hate them. I say rope a family member in! ;)

  3. But why did you hate these pics? You look gorge in every one! But I hate every photo of my face ever so I get it kind of haha. I use a tripod for my pics (although at the moment I have a tripod and no camera which is totally useless.) I hope everything's going ok for you, sounds like you've got lots of new things going on which I think is a good thing :) x

  4. Hahahahaha oh my gosh Gems! A French prostitute! That had me laughing so hard! :D I love how witty you are in your posts! But I do love that outfit! So cute!!! Hmmmm you could try using a tripod maybe? It's so hard without a photographer. I totally understand!


  5. I absolutely love your sense of style! I really enjoyed this post. Hope you find a new photographer soon! xx


  6. your first outfit is so cool! Imagine every day was a dress up day like that! Love the dress in your second picture :) x

  7. You have some great outfit posts. I struggle with finding a good set up for my outfit pictures x

  8. Wow you look amazing as the Goblin King! very effective outfit!

  9. Whaat?! Is that you or some hot glam rock chick from the 80s? This first outfit seriously reminds me of The Darkness (if anyone remembers this band at all).
    The other outfits are cool too though! I love the black/white print pants (YOU have to suck it in? H&M seriously is cutting their clothes wrong obviously then). The cozy fur jacket looks fab too, so good for the cool and winfy days to wrap yourself up in it completely! <3

  10. I love that 1st snap....! Your fake fur coat is lovely x

  11. These outfits are all stunners Gems! More importantly you are the stunner in every shot! You're taking it next level with fancy dressing, loving how feisty you are!! Working it for sure ;)

    So happy you are focusing on so many positive stepping stones, it's absolutely wonderful <3

  12. Hahaha, I don't dismiss one single outfit because it's who you are and it represents your quirky lovely personality! :D I Loooove the pirate shirt, would wear this every day too!
    As for the photographer, if you can get me some tickets and find me a job there, I'd photograph you everyday! Haha :D
    Btw, totally get you on the moving, we're moving out sisters, so much drama! :D

  13. I love all the monochrome designs and it's nice to see you blogging again :)
