Tears don't mean you're losing.

Dress, Primark - £5
Black thick knit crop jumper, H&M - £7.99
Hat, carboot - £1
Bag, ebay - £20
Zara pointed black suede heels, ebay - £9
'carried away' necklace c/o Eclectic Eccentricity

I find it quite difficult to dress for A/W if I'm honest. I saw this dress in Primark on the 'sale rail' for a fiver. I am such a hoarder of shoes at the moment, I own far too many pairs and these zara ones are one of my favourites! (although not the comfiest!!)

I did the whole 'accent nails' thingy as if you spend over £6 on barry m nail polishes in boots you get this limited edition one thats silver glitter for free - and I really love it! I'm not a huge spender of beauty etc to be honest but it's nice to get new bits and bobs once in a while!

My absolute favourite online jewellery company Eclectic Eccentricity have kindly given me this 'carried away' necklace to giveaway on the blog! As part of their '12 days of christmas', they're running this same contest with different necklaces on other blogs (there is a list of these on this post)

Shake it out.

White lace bustier top, ebay - £20
Waffle knit topshop cardigan, ebay - £18
H&M velvet style shorts, ebay - £5
Leather bag, charity shop - £5
Black hand knitted snood, ebay - £6
Polka dot turban, c/o Crown & Glory

Got sent this lovely polka dot turban from crown & glory a little while back, great for channeling the black & white look. It was absolutely pouring it down with rain today and I just wanted to curl up infront of my heater with my laptop and a pot noodle. Looks like a very ebay heavy post, having the app on my phone does not help with my addiction - but it's christmas so I'm allowed to get myself some things now and again, right?

Sorry for the lack of posts recently - but can you believe how close to christmas it is? And It's 3 weeks until my 19th birthday - words can't even describe how unexcited I am. I WANT TO BE 18 FOREVER :(
