Take one unwearable shirt...

So when I brought this shirt home from the Sack Sale, Jack was less than impressed with it. He actually laughed his head off hysterically and asked, 'when are you ever going to wear that?'

Here's the wonderful garment itself...

Some love for the pig's bum coat hook?
I honestly didn't think it was that awful; in fact, I rather liked it. But perhaps it is a little 'out there' for the general majority. This is why I've decided to prove him wrong and have come up with three great outfits with the 'unwearable shirt'. Take that ;D 

Outfit One
Jumper - my sister's, skirt - H&M, Boots - Primark, Headscarf - not sure, Watch - Jeremy Scott for Swatch
I've got my Ace Ventura hair going on.The thing that actually attracted me about the shirt was the interesting material, it's so bright and shiny. The main qualm I have with it is that it's a little on the large side, so I've tucked it into this skirt to mask that.

Outfit two

Tee - H&M, Jeans - Primark, Skull bracelet - Charity shop, Watch - Jeremy Scott for Swatch, bracelet- Pandora

Check out the lil socks - so chic, right? :') A more casual look now, and the oversized look of the shirt works great this time. Of course, I did tie it at the ends as it is actually ma-hoo-sive, but I think that looks okay. It makes for a nice cover-up and and extra layer in this freezing cold. I'm notoriously awful at dressing for the winter weather, so I was pretty thankful for the additional warmth.

Outfit Three

Jacket - Sack Sale, Leggings - River Island, Trainers - Pastry, Bracelet - Pandora

'What choo lookin' at?'
Me looking just a bit insane
I look an absolute berk on this picture. I know it's hard to believe, but it actually was the best of a bad bunch :') It's the only one where the outfit is completely visible. Bad lighting, you see. 
 Despite the fact the photo is a bit loco, this is my favourite look. I'm rocking the dogtooth trend this season, plus these leggings are quite thick so keep me reasonably warm, which is a bonus.
I got two denim jackets from the sack sale, and I've been wearing them so much recently. I'd been on the lookout for one for so long and two came at once, how perfect :3

So what do you think of my unwearable shirt? Did I convince you guys that it's beautiful or do you still think it's completely hideous?

Inabit guys ..♣

Pink & White Candy Cane Nails

Hello bubalas! 

Haven't posted for a bit, I've had a mental couple of weeks, and I'm setting sail for another one tomorrow. Phew, uni is incredibly tiring. I'm excited to interview the head of events and entertainment in the city Wednesday, but of course I'm very nervous, so wish me luck :)

I'm in the process of writing a post on my 'unwearable' shirt, so look out for that within the next week or so. Like I say, there's rather a lot going on. On top of all my work, it's Jack's birthday on Tuesday, so I've had to get myself organised for that. Perhaps soon I'll get some sleep :')

Hope you like the nails, they are kind of like my candy cane/rock summer nails but I've opted for the more traditional pink and white. Cute, no? I'm thinking about doing a Christmas version, red white, green and gold maybe? Hmm ...

Hope you have a stupendous week

The Phantom of Camden

My friend Alex's birthday falls on Halloween, and instead of going for a night of clubbing, we decided to do something a bit different.

 My other bestie Jordan is studying up in London, so we combined visiting her with a day-trip for Alex's 20th. First we went to Camden town; where we explored the weird and wonderful shops and stalls and ate doughnuts. It was freezing, but awesome.

Amazing masks , how appropriate 
So cool right?

These collars were beautiful, but pricey

The weirdest yet wonderful place I've ever been

After a meal of pizza came the main attraction of the day: The Phantom of the Opera in Her majesty's Theatre. It was absolutely amazing; I'd love to see it again. All the actors had incredible voices, but the girl who played Christine really blew me away. Wow.

It was such a great day, I really must start going to the theatre more often 8) Shame I'm a broke student, eh. I'm totally obsessed with this show right now, I'd go see it again and again. I can't wait to get back into London; next time will be Big Bang's concert at Wembley. Unfortunately I won't be able to have a look round then but who cares - it's BIG BANG!

Ménage à trois ;D
Me, Jordan, Alex

Hope you had a great Halloween ..♣
