Night + Day: Two Outfits

Two outfits here, firstly what I wore last night when I visited my friend at her uni and went on a night out. I fashioned a dress out of a stretch pencil skirt, waisted belt and a polo shirt, a sort of home-made bodycon dress.

I buy a lot of little things like tights, scarves, hairbands etc at Primark but not clothes or shoes because the shop is so "popular" as everything is so cheap and therefore the risk of being in the same place as someone wearing the same item of clothing is likely, and that always makes me feel uncomfortable for some reason. However, I'd spotted these hideously amazing shoes a few weeks ago, so I popped in yesterday to see if they were still in and they were so I bought them, despite my friend's disgust (literally, she was flabbergasted that I was even contemplating trying them on!!). I love them and their patent-snakeskin-mule-holey...ness!



This is what I wore today, inspired by some quite pleasant weather for once. Mind you, I have spent the whole day sitting around watching SKY TV, but nevermind. This dress is one of my favourites, and was only £3 from a second-hand/vintage store =].

  4. Very cute blue dress! Some of my most treasured things came from thrift stores. And those shoes might appear ugly to some but they're amazing in my eyes.
