This Monday was the tumblr meetup, It was a beautiful day and I'm so glad I took my camera with me because we all took so many photos! Rather than posting them all here, if you click this link you can see them all on my tumblr, but I guess I'll post a few here too!
I bought this dress at clothes show live in december, its from Motel, I have two of them, but the otherone is cream with a different pattern on it, but its the same kind of style. I bought the bow tie from a charity shop, my nan gave me the scarf, the socks are from primark and dr martens from ebay! I'm off to Nathans house now, hopefully he will cook me a plate of yorkshire puddings awh!
I have a lot of highwaisted denim shorts, and I find that blue gets a bit boring, so I decided, I know I'll dye some pink! So here they are, I love them, I'll be wearing them all the time and I'll probably dye the rest of my shorts too knowing me.
I bought the top from Youreyeslie and my grandma gave me the belt. My glasses are from specsavers in the granny section. I'm going to need some new glasses soon because everything is becoming blurry again, why must my eyesight deteriorate, it was so good for 15 years!
This blouse is another recent purchase from the charity shops! The collar is really long, I feel like The Joker whenever I wear it, even though it doesn't really look the same. My skirt is from primark, again. I feel I should never have bought these velvet skirts as its practically all I wear, they go with everything haha. The sparkely tights are from ebay, as are my dr martens. I think the bow came off a present, or it was part of the wrapping on something I bought.
I've had a very good day today. It didn't start very well because I kept missing buses and they were all really late, but after I got off the bus and made my way to the charity shops everything improved!
Its been ages since I went to the charity shops. I bought some blouses and jumpers, but what I really wanted to show you were these marvelous things! I walked into the shop and they were staring at me. I was like, those have to be my size, they are made for my feet! So I walked up to them and looked at the size and yes, they were my size (UK 5) so I tried them on, and angels began to sing. They were £15 from The Salvation Army, brand new, they don't look like they've ever been worn! I was so happy.
Last night I got back from college and decided to take a photo of my outfit. I then continued to put on all the outfits I had worn over the past two weeks but had forgotten to take photos, and then photograph the ones I liked the most, so there are more to come!
I've started doing my hair like this. I got quite bored of my old updo and I thought I needed a new and improved one so here it is I hope you like it :)
Both my blouses are from charity shops, the skirt is from primark, but you probably already know that! My tights are from trusty old Marks and Spencers and my shoes are from primark. Also, I almost forgot, my grandma gave me the brooch.
These are my beautiful doggies. They are West Highland Terriers, and there supposed to be white but they enjoy playing in the mud, so they're more of a beige colour haha! Awh but I still love them very much. They're rescue dogs, they were breeding bitches on a puppy farm, forced to live in cages with what I'm guessing was very little food as snowie was very thin when she came to us. They were forced to have as many litters as possible before they could no longer have any more and then when the farmer had no use for them, he would, well.. get rid of them. I wrote more about it here on my blog back in August, and about the place that rescued them (Many Tears Animal Rescue) you can read it HERE if you like.
Snowie is the one on the right and Prudence is on the left.. Snowie was originally called Persil but my Dad said he didn't want to be running around the park calling "PERSIL!" Haha.
You probably think they look completely the same, everyone thinks there sisters, but I think they look completely different. Prudence is quite small and has a very rounded back and a small head but snowie is more square shaped with giant ears haha, I call her radar ears lol!
Snowie is very bossy and her two number one priorities in life are to go to the park everyday and also to eat lots and lots of food, preferably roast chicken. Shes become a very happy dog, when we first had her she was terrified of everything but shes a lot better now and has probably become a little over confident. She thinks rules the house lol.
Prudence is very friendly and likes basically everyone, apart from people she barks at which isn't many. She's very protective of my mom and gets very depressed when my mom is doing anything that doesn't involve prudence. We think that before she went to the puppy farm she lived in a house because when we first had her, she knew what suit cases were and what it meant when someone put on their coat or got their keys. She also hates christmas, whenever she sees the christmas tree she follows my mom around everywhere as if shes going to loose her. We think that her old family must have given her away to the puppy farm at christmas to make way for a new dog or something like that.. Although, I don't understand how someone could even do that.
Anyway, I love them very much, I don't know what I would do without my two ickle doggies!
Some photos from when I sprayed the entirety of my hair blue and green. I think this is my favorite colour as of yet, I defiantly prefer green to pink for some reason. When I first took the photos which was about two months ago, I posted them on tumblr and everyone said it looked like mermaid hair, which makes sense really lol. Although quite a few others did start calling me Old Greg, which was nice, yknow. Haha. I'm wearing my customized disturbed top that I bought at Clothes Show Live!
I should start telling people the names of the songs which my lookbook and blog posts are named as. This particular lyric "I'm searching for fragile bones" is from Evolution by Korn, who are probably my second most favorite band ever, Mr Manson being first of course!
In this look I am wearing a new top I bought last Thursday from Select! It was in the sale so obviously I had to buy it, there was another one which I haven't bought yet because sale items were buy one get one half price! I haven't worn the other one yet. I am also wearing a velvet skirt from primark which was £1! I have much love for primark sales! The belt was given to me by my grandma, I'm wearing it all the time currently, I think its my favorite accessory. I bought my tights from the Birmingham Rag Market but they were very flimsy and ripped easily, so I decided to rip them a bit more haha! Socks are from primark and the were given to me by my Nan.
My My Little Pony top has arrived! I have much love for ebay! I cut it up as soon as I got it, Like basically all my other tops that have been attacked with scissors. I'm also wearing a skirt which I made myself, a head band with a bow on but I have no idea where its from. A turquoise cardigan from primark and also from primark, my shoes and socks. My grandma gave me the belt, I used to have a pink one too but I have no idea where it's hiding :( I love how tacky it is as well, its like a jelly belt!
Also I have redirected my tumblr page to my blog here. This is because I really don't like tumblr anymore, I can laugh off hate very easily, but I dislike confrontation and that is what it feels like when I go on there these days, everything is so negative. Having it redirect to my blog gives my tumblr followers a chance to continue following me, that is if they want to, I do wonder sometimes. I might delete and I might not... I'm really not sure about it, maybe I'll go back to tumblr, who knows. There is just such a negative atmosphere on there, and in not being there I am hoping to post updates here daily and get rid of this mood of impending doom!
