A Pop of Colour

Hellooooo – here are photos of my most recent purchases from Urban Outfitters, matched with (finally) a new tee from Stussy’s SS17 new stuff. I tucked the tee in to the high-waisted mini skirt and threw on some fishnets to finish off the look.

There was a yellow denim skirt from Topshop which I had my eye on for ages, but they never had my size in stock, so I found this lime-coloured skirt, with a cute white stitch, which I ended up loving even more – so I had to buy it! (there’s me trying to justify purchases with white stitching… okurrrr b)

I had also been searching for a red mini backpack for ages, and I couldn’t find one apart from a vintage one which was selling on Depop. However, I was reluctant to buy it because I was determined to try it on with an outfit before buying, when I came across this one from Urban Outfitters. Dickies is such a good quality brand and very affordable – I love it eeee.

Thanks for reading!

Teddy Bear Fit

As promised, I said I would continue with a sweatshirt series and here’s the new addition! Yum yum new garm from Topshop; found it in the branded section called “Glamourous” online. I was torn between this brown Teddy Bear coloured sweat or the pale, off-white colour! I couldn’t buy both so I figured this brown would look cleaner for longer.

I love it – it’s soo warm and cosy! I got a size Medium because I love an oversized fit jumper.

Unfortunately I can’t find the original link but here is the white and a new grey colour I’ve just found since last looking at Topshop’s site:

I think this item will last me for ages – it’s a timeless piece and a comfy sweat will never go out of fashion. If I wanted to sell it on my Depop page, I can imagine that the re-sale price would be the same as the original (if not, more) because these Teddy Bear fabrics are so in at the moment. Ever since H&M came out with that classic Teddy Bear jacket which went out of stock so quickly, I have seen people selling their’s on eBay and Depop for £100 when it was bought at around £35 in store and online. Madness!

Defected Store Collaboration

I’ve teamed up with Defected Store – the clothing/merchandise line for Defected Records – to bring you guys some of their clothes, accessories and albums. When they kindly asked me to pick out some garms and items, these are the ones which stood out the most…

I chose the men’s items, purely because I prefer an oversized fit. However, there is also the choice to buy women’s if you prefer a smaller fit! You can see I have tucked in my sweatshirt and tshirts; although you don’t need to do this. I just thought it looked most flattering with mom jeans and cigarette pants.
