Just a quick post to let you all know I am really busy with college work at the moment. I've so many assignments due including my dissertation, busy busy busy. I will be back to more regular outfit posts once I get all my work handed in.
I thought I'd show you what I wore out last Thursday night since I didn't get a chance to take any outfit photos. I had hold up stockings on with it too, but they kept slipping down and had to be abandoned.
Bottom photo is a DIY project I started on a study break. I can't afford Topshop's version so I decided to make my own studded bralette.

Vintage metallic leggings & asos leopard biker jacket

19 April 2012

Say hello to my new favourite leggings! They're one of the items I picked up at the Shutterbug kilo sale, which I wrote about in a previous blog. Better still is the fact they fit me, so my poor Mommy had one less thing to alter. I layered some of my latest charity shop finds under my fav jacket at the moment, my ASOS biker. I managed to get it with a discount code last summer as it was quite pricey. Anything that combines leather and leopard print is a winner for me, so it was worth it.

Have you picked up anything nice in a charity shop recently? x

Navy Suede Creepers

16 April 2012

I've finally bought myself a pair of creepers! I popped into office after work to just try them on for size, but of course I couldn't say no. I originally wanted a pink pair with leopard print upper. Sadly office didn't stock those ones. However I did get mine for only €80 which is much cheaper than the online prices. It was a toss up between these and the black suede with leopard upper. My friend and mother kindly pointed out I wear so much clashing clothes it was best to stick with a neutral. Thanks ladies! x

Shutterbug Vintage Kilo Sale

11 April 2012
Last Sunday was my first Sunday off in forever. I love my sleep and it takes a lot for me to say no to an extra few hours, but as soon as a friend told me about the Shutterbug vintage kilo sale sleep was the last thing on my mind. A road trip from Dublin to Kilkenny was definitely on the cards. For those of you who haven't heard of a kilo sale, it's literally when clothes are weighed and sold per the kilo.

The event actually kicked off on Saturday and within a few minutes the place was packed with people hunting for vintage goodies. Blanaid herself kindly emailed me the photos of the event, how gorgous is the venu?

We were a little scared there wouldn't be much left for us on Sunday, but we needn't have worried there was plenty for us to get excited about. I bought some of the most amazing heavily sequined items, leather shorts and silver metallic leggings that would rival your disco pants. In total I narrowed it down to 5 items and paid a grand total of €32. Shocking I know! Can't wait to show you all my lovely treasures in my next post :)
