I am going to put ALL my clothes in this little box.

27 Mar

I turned up to Benny’s work today in my new favourite outfit – see below – and his work collegue said to him “You could never live with her – the fashion Police would wake you up every morning.” Any normal person would take that as an insult, but i’m not normal so thanks Michael for the compliment :D.

These boots are made for walkin’

As of time of writing and without trudging all the way down stairs to count I currently own 10 pairs of boots (ankle, shin, knee, thigh-high – all flat though may I add) – obsessed me? I THINK SO!

Now, I know for sure that I didn’t HAVE to add another two pairs to my already full at the brim shoe closet but when I came across a pair of boots that I couldn’t live without in Primark this week I knew ASAP that I would be adding another pair to my bursting boot collection.

Bonjour!

My 5000 word essay on whether ‘the fashion blogopshere has taken over from the established fashion magazines’ has now been handed in so now I’m back to my usual bloggin-ness. YEY!

So yesterday off I popped to Primark for the first time since Christmas Eve!! – I know right, whats that all about? – and because I had left it for eternity and a day my favourite shop had plenty of cheap buys that I HAD to have, rather then having nothing like it usually has when I go in every day.

One thing I had noticed about Primark though is the fact that all their clothes have gone mega downhill ATM, there wasn’t anything clothes-wise that I liked let alone wanted. Perhaps, it’s the lull of post-Christmas fashion and that their Spring/Summer collections haven’t came through yet but really who the hell would wear a polyester khaki pair of flares? SORT IT OUT!

Sequins Galore.

Bonjour blogarinis,

Sorry about my little leave of absence but snow + essay + no money = one sad little Chantal. However, as Take That would say I’m (btw is anybody else pissed off about Mark Owen being downgraded now that the glorified druggie who is Robbie Williams is back?) back for gooooodddd.

Now, I haven’t had a BIG shopping trip in ages and yes, I am extremely depressed about it but with a few random walks through town to get to the bus station or to buy important things like food and knitting needles I have managed to scour out a few barginous buys.

First up, its every girls best friend – no not diamonds but Primark of course. Unfortunately, everybodys favourite shop hasn’t pleased me very much over the last couple of months so I wasn’t expecting to come across anything amazing while wondering aimlessly through. Continue reading

Hat full of stars.

14 Dec

Oh, I really hate this snow now! No not because of the cold or the fact that I’ve slipped over about 10 times but because I have had to wear the same shoes every day with all of my outfits!!

As far as wellies these are a-okay but big black rubber boots simply don’t look good with a micro mini skirt but they are a necessity in this crazy-ass weathers so I’m going to have to put-up and shut-up.

Bowler hat: Stiches (fancy dress shop) – £5
Tweed blazer: Charity shop – £4
Camel blouse: Charity shop – £1
Black bodycon skirt: H&M – £7.99
Wooly tights: Primark – £2
Wellington boots: Primark – £10

I feel like a proper englishman in my tweed blazer and bowler hat – “Good afternoon to you Sir.”

Wes Brown Syndrome.

18 Nov

Yes I am currently suffering from that embarrassing disease of Wes Brown-avitus. My skin and hair have blended all together into one colour! – time to dye my locks I think, but what colour? – red, blonde, black, vimto? – the possibilites are endless, but all I do know is that I need it transformed ASAP before I am one block of beigey/brown-ness.

Anyways, less about my scary syndrome and more about my fashion…

Leather Jacket: Topshop – £30 (god, I have had a lot of wears out of this jacket – well worth the money.)
Oversized Camel Blouse: Topshop £40 – I JOKE, I JOKE! £1 – Charity Shop. (but really they are this expensive in Topshop – its quite sickening TBH )
Necklaces: Various places – £2 – £4.
Dark Denim shorts: Charity Shop – £1.
Studded Barrel Bag: Primark – £9 – IKR WTF?! – but I did desperately need it and its the perfect size so the amazingness has balanced out the OTT price.
Woolen Tights: Primark – £2.
Black Brogues: Primark – £8.

A piece of advice from me to you: do not wear micro denim shorts when riding a bike – OUCH!
