What's Black And White and Red All Over?

Skirt - ASOS, Sweater - Retrospec'd, Shirt - Ben Sherman, Shoes - Qupid from GoJane

...me and my dumb face! I'm not great at riddles. This is the outfit I wore for my 24th birthday. I didn't fall over in these shoes ONCE and I was very proud. Also this cake was made for me:

Steve Buscemi putting on lipstick aside, this jumper is one of my favourite basic black items and I've never found anything to match it - lightweight and mid sleeve, so you can wear it all year, high neck so its perfect for collars, and cropped length so I can wear it with my collection of harry high pants and sally circle skirts.

Would Turn For - Anne-Catherine Frey

I like to think I have original style that is unique to me, but then I come across people like Anne-Catherine Frey who dress EXACTLY how I would want to - not a shoe, accessory or hair out of place - and I think maybe style can never really be original (as much as we'd like it to be).She even sounds like me:

"How do you get dressed in the morning?
Very quickly, because I always wake up too late. Very quick, very easy, very comfortable, very basic, but I never forget my signature shirt collar."

Favourite weekend activity? Sleeping!"
(from Telegraph UK)
A woman after my own heart. She makes me want to grow some eyebrows.

I'm usually a bit scared of yellow with my firey old mop of hair but this pastel suit seems to work.

Geometrics, Etsy Style

Left to right scrolling down: Portugese cropped jacket - They Roared Vintage, Guy Laroche jacket - The Stitchkeeper, East German vases - Love My Vintage Bazaar, 50's skirt - Shop Reinvintage, Jean Paul Gaultier top - The Stitchkeeper, Swimsuit - Alea's Closet, Periodic table poster - Hey Mom By Promise, Necklace - Gili Life Collection, Wine rack - Rust Belt Threads

This post should really just be called "Shit I Want From Etsy", and I guarantee there will be a lot more of them. I love Etsy. I sometimes wonder why I ever buy things that aren't from Etsy, to be honest. I'm going to say Etsy one more time.
