Sinner

[Shirt -Joy, Jeans - Topshop, Leopard print pumps - Vintage]

Send me to fashion hell; I wore black and brown together this week! I bought this shirt for £5 in a sale at JOY (which has shut down now, another victim of the recession) last year and I love the piping, and the way the sleeves pouf out at the elbows =]. I wore it for a cinema date with the boy (Go see District 9 everyone!). I hadn't noticed how grey the sky & lake (which you have to cross to get to the cinema) look together until now, haha.

I have just moved into the boy's house for a few months. His dad moved to Vancouver two years ago on a professorship at Simon Fraser uni, and his Mam has gone to join him over there on a part-time professorship (I'm so jealous of them, I love Vancouver!). They will be back for a few months at Christmas, but until then I have moved in to keep him and Alfie dog company =]. We had a "house warming" party last night, which was lots of fun!
P.S My flickr account was full so I moved to Photobucket and I'm rather liking the image sizes!

  5. I actually like the the brown with the black, it's a light brown and so they are not too close in color :)
    I like the shirt a lot!

  7. Hurrah! The war shirt! Is this the first time you've worn it? It looks good! I have to hop everywhere. If I have to hop around NY, my left leg will be so toned! Don't let me drink at one of your parties again please. It would have been better if I'd gone out so I couldn't afford to drink! Haha xxx

  15. yes. women after my own heart, I love when people wear brown and black together. It's totally archaic to think that they can't go together. Nice styling! Oh, yeah, thanks for the comment on my blog, I'm now following your blog. you've got great style girl :)
    peace
