What is that?

I recently discovered some vintage (what i thought was just sheer fabric) but clothes under my bed donated from my auntie a while back. They're so interesting and I had so much fun with the way they flow.

They're actually a pair of high waisted bloomers with a sheer uneven skirt and a sheer blouse wth interesting ruffles down the front and on the cuffs.
I'm sure one day I'll get better photos so I can really do these clothes justice but for now this will do..
I'd really love to wear the skirt, I just need an appropriate time and event to do so!
Unfortunately the fabric has a few rips and tears in the skirt, because they are so all i suppose, but nevertheless they're beautiful!

I never know what to wear this time of year...

This time of year february/march when s/s11 trends have been out long enough and we all want to sport them but the weather just can't decide what it wants to be..
my first official springy like outfit, im wearing shorts for christ sake.. just hope the weather stays like this to match.. or i guess I'll have to do alot of layering.
how are you combating these months?

WILDFOXGIRL

I'm a little obsessed with american brand Wildfox Couture (wildofoxcouture.co.uk)! Usually, I wouldn't be attracted to clothes like these but there is something different about this brand which makes it seem a little more grown up, but not, if that makes sense. It might be there use of religious symbols which attracts me, ( I love seeing them used in fashion) or just the overall funniness of their tee's, or the little story that went along with the A/W 10 collection.
Anyways, I'm sort of refraining from putting these ones onto lookbook as shorts and a tee isn't much of a look, really..


Anyways, let me know what pieces of wildfox you own (if you do) or if you don't and why!( anyways, its way nicer than what Juicy Couture has become) ill leave you with the piece I'm coveting atm..

Paris

A few photographs from a beautiful trip to paris my bofriend took me on just after christmas. Most including my trusty camel coat but I just thought it was worth putting them on here because I had an amazing time.



We went to all the major places, the Louvre, Effiel Tower ofc, Champs-Élysées and also the vintage shops a bit more out of the way, but my favourite was Colette (www.colette.fr) which inculded work from young up and coming designers. The stores layout is lovely and has loads of quirky ornaments suiting different designers. Although, when we were there there was a sale on (yay) so there was quite a few sale racks but they still had beautifully presented mannequins displaying outfits from an aray of designers.





The photos of me were took by my wonderful boyfriend and and ones of effiel tower myself.
