In a back-to-school homage to all my dear friends (Hi Lori!), followers, and kind strangers on the morning bus run, I wore this jumper to meet people for coffee. The girl behind the counter of starbucks called me "snazzy". She then told the next person to write "Snazzy" on the cup. If it wasn't so unhygienic I would have brought it home with me. This really is the cutest jumper and was thus, ABSOLUTELY EXTORTIONATE. But I can't help but love printed knits and this is particularly soft and lovely. You can still buy it on the Urban Outfitters website but WARNING: they're designed to be worn quite slimly (which is not my cup of tea) so I ended up buying a size larger.
You can't see it very well in the photos but these are the epic cheetah printed trousers from Topshop's previous season. I had desperately wanted them but refused to pay the £35 so was thrilled when I got them for £15 in the summer sale. They look amazing in real life; I love the subtleness of the pattern. The shoes are also ponyhair which is sometimes a nightmare if rains but I was lucky... The weather has definitely taken a turn for the worse. Is it bad that this makes me happy? YES! Bring on the tweed! Bring on the wool! Bring on the heating bills!
No funny stories to report today. While I was waiting for the paralympic closing ceremony to start, my father walked in on me watching Home Alone 2 and commented that it was a film about "the failures of negligent parenting upon a future delinquent marketed with a polished christmas bow". I could only grunt in response. This was a day after he caught me watching my first episode of Jersey Shore. I feel he now thinks less of me; it would probably have been easier to explain away porn. Sad face.
edit 2: Oh god, I had to upload these photos through my flickr. It seem Anonymous has hacked into godaddy (where I host my images) and so my blog just looks terrible... Crossing my fingers they get everything back up soon. Deeply regretting prepaying for an entire year now!
