Living Room Fashion..

So those of you who know me, know that I'm not really the most stylish person...
Ask any of my friends what I wear normally and the reply will be - jeans and a t shirt... this has seriously been my uniform for the past... I don't know how many years...  jeans and t shirts have come and gone.. but they have always been replaced by a plethora of others.. I think at one stage I owned about 15 pairs of jeans... I've lost count of how many t shirts I own... my mother says I could open my own store... funny thing is.. I probably could, I have THAT many t shirts... Luckily having lived in many places over the last few years.. I have them all stored in separate places.. but if one day.. all my t shirts were to come together in one place...

Let's just say.. I LOVE t shirts...        Anyways... moving right along....
The point I'm making is, it is rare that I am not in jeans and a t shirt.. so when I bother wearing something different... I feel like I should mark the occasion... so here's my first attempt at an outfit post...

Coat - Uniqlo 2007 (can't remember cost); 
Dress - American Apparel £25 ( I paid £12.50, 50% off w/coupon);
Belt - thrifted at car boot sale 20p (might have been 10p, I forget);
Tartan tights - souvenir shop £7.50;
Boots - M&S outlet £12 (originally £80, as they are real leather) SCORE!

I kept meaning to get the mister to take photos of me while we were out.. but it was cold out and we were running from store to store and I totally forgot till we came home... so s'cuse the laundry in the background!! At least it's only towels!! :)

Who says you can't wear green and purple!?!?! 

How did I do?? Yes?? No?? Would you be seen in public with me?? :D

Oh, and remember I said I made a t shirt necklace??
Well, here are some pics of me with the finished product!!


  1. Hey! I do my photo collages the hard way. I find the pictures on Google, save them, crop them, and them combine them using PhotoScape (you can download it free in the internet). I'm sure there must be an easier way to do it, but I don't have fancy photoshop or anything like that so I make do. :)

  2. haha, it's fine!
    I actually just upload pictures straight from my computer to Blogger. Blogger has a new post composer now that makes it MUCH easier to control picture size. If you haven't upgraded to the new post creator yet, there should be a button or something on the current one. When you upload the picture it will default to a smaller size, but just click on the picture and there will be an option to make it the original size. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
