Autumn/Winter wardrobe – DONE.

5 Oct

With uni starting up again this week I thought I should spend my last totally free weekend going on an absolute shopping binge. Off I popped into town with my trusty shopping list that I wrote in shorthand for some unknown reason so naturally I went into a bit of a crazed frenzy in Primark trying to read back what F and R followed by a S T F meant.

After a few minutes standing there in the middle of everybodys way I realised it meant fur stuff – i’m great with words ain’t I? I scurried off to the back of the store where all the jems are hidden in order to find some furry items to place upon my head.

What would Cyndi Lauper do?

6 Aug


What would Cyndi Lauper do? aka WWCLD? – that is my shopping motto. Whenever I go shopping and I spot an item of clothing those words chime through my head and mostly the answer is always YES! Unless I have to pick something formal or boring like a pair of plain jeans.

So the other day when I was walking mindlessly through New Look, mainly just to get through the other side to get to HMV to go look at wrestling DVDs, I came across this fabulous jump suit and WWCLD? rang through my head and naturally the answer was YES ABSOLUTLY!

Now, to my horror whilst I was picking out a suitable size (it’s only a size 10 even it does look like a size 20-odd) about 3 chavalicious girls were also checking this out and I knew that they wouldn’t be following my mantra. They will probs be pairing it up with something tediously boring like a pair of black flip-flops and gold bangles.

While of course I will be accessorising it up to high heavens. Wide belts, skinny belts all piled on top of each other. All the bracelets I can find in my house, my millions of necklaces and my Bret Hart sandles – they are deliciously pink and have A LOT of fringe on them.

I might even try to pass myself off as Cyndi Lauper’s granddaughter when I’m on holiday – I think it may just work.
