Under the Sea.... The ultimate mermaid shirt!!!!

If you're a regular reader you're probably aware I'm a sucker for anything mermaidy and am a big kid at heart. So anything fun and with an underwater theme appeals to me greatly. So when I spotted this amazing shirt hiding in the rails at a vintage weigh and pay kilo sale I grabbed it as quick as I could. It's a loose oversized style in a chiffon like material with an amazing underwater theme print with fishes all over. The bright blue and greens are colours I love wearing so it was absolutely perfect for me and as it is so light it would've worked out super cheap as it barely weighed anything in the kilo. For this look I teamed it with a pu leather skirt in the same lime shade, you can't really see it in the pictures but it was more to cover my modesty as although the shirts super long it's sheer so I still needed some bottoms. I wore tights as it's still feeezing and some chunky platform sandals. I accessorised with a lime leather bag and some cute pompom bobbles, finishing off with a shell necklace to complete the mermaid vibe!

Pink to make the boys wink!!!

So it's January and what a dull month it usually is, everyone's skint and that's certainly the case for me and the weather is miserable. I do have a couple of plans for the month though to get me through, including my first gig of the year in a couple of weeks which I'm really looking forward to. I wanted to brighten up this dull month with a bit of colour and a colour I don't actually wear very!! Firstly I'm serving up total 90s realness with this cute pink sequin beret. I was on my way to work one day and saw it in the charity shop window and had to run in and grab it before I got my bus. It was only a couple of pounds and I absolutely love it, I'm also sure I had one pretty much the same in the 90s as a child, why do we never keep theses things! Going for a pink theme with this look and planning an outfit around the hat I teamed it with these vintage spotty trousers. I picked them up at the vintage weigh and pay kilo sale a couple of months back, they're so comfy and I love the 80s style. I wore a high neck black velvet top tucked into the trousers and a silky effect bomber jacket. Playing on the 80s vibe I wore a chunky chain detail belt to cinch in the high waisted style more. I wore a gold initial necklace and my fave vintage bag and finished off the look with some more pink with these metallic crossover sandals, which match the spakliness of the beret perfectly!!

Hello 2017.... What I'm wearing 'The perfect Afghan coat!!!'

So hello 2017, how it has flown around, 2016 seemed to just zoom past, especially the festive season. But then Christmas always does and you're just left skinter, fatter and a bit depressed it's all over so quickly and then you're back to work. Although in retail you're never really off over Christmas, I did however get 5 days off this year which never happens, so it was nice to have a little break even though it was over too quickly. Anyway I hope everyone had a great Christmas and new year, I got spoilt at Christmas and got loads of fab gifts. But a new year and back to the blogging and I'm going to try and keep at it, as I've been quite rubbish at regular posting this last few months.

So as I'm sure you're aware it's been absolutely freezing recently, we seemed to get away with it not being too cold for a while but suddenly the temperatures have dropped. So it's definitely winter coat weather! I have had this amazing coat since summer when I found it at the vintage weigh and pay kilo sale. I had been after a vintage Afghan coat for ages but never found the right one, it's always hard to find one that fits. So when I found this and it fit me perfectly, I didn't care we were in the height of summer I knew I had to still purchase it. So it has just been sat in my wardrobe waiting to be worn. The best part about this amazing coat is it was only £15, can you believe it! It was on the fixed price rail so whatever the weight it was £15, bargain! It's in a brown sheepskin with fur around the trim and cuffs. It's so heavy but super cosy and I absolutely love the 70s style I teamed it with a checked kilt skirt and a vintage blouse. I wore my patent boots, a black fedora and my fave vintage bag. Finished off with a black velvet choker and some fishnet tights. I hate winter but when you have a coat as fabulous as this I don't mind a bit of cold so I can try and get as much wear out of it as possible.
