Hi lovelies, how was your weekend? I had a really fun few days involving a swamp-themed birthday party and my brother's 18th birthday, but I have a definite case of blues from coming back down to reality! Last night we won the pub quiz which involved a certain amount of tequila shots and I would definitely prefer not to be starting my second job today, but there we have it.
Necklace - Koa Jewellery
T-shirt - (local gig)
Garter - Custard and Berries
Socks - eBay
Dr Martens - Cloggs
I look fairly awkward in these photos, and my hair's awful which I do apologise for but I have to blame a lack of sleep for all that - I didn't get into bed until well after 4am as I was putting my very drunk brother to bed (he was hilarious and had a great night, but I did feel somewhat responsible and took all possible measures to ensure he didn't wake up to a horrid hangover to ruin the rest of his birthday!) This outfit came about because I had a few separate things I wanted to wear and figured I'd just wear them all at the same time, basically. That includes my cheap eBay striped socks (one day I really need to buy the genuine thigh-highs from American Apparel but how expensive?!) and a T-shirt from a pretty awesome local band which I adore for the awesome illustration and the fact that it says 'Shithouse' - there's nothing better than a decent, slightly obnoxious graphic T-shirt. For £6 at the gig it was a bargain. Combine that with my beautiful new garter from Custard and Berries (I sense a new addiction coming on) and my new favourite necklace, it just felt right to throw all of this together and top it off with some DMs. If it's a mess, at least it's a comfy, all-black mess (that says 'Shithouse' for good measure.) Find this outfit on Lookbook here.
Today all I really want to do is lie in bed and listen to '... Like Clockwork' by Queens of the Stone Age but unfortunately I can't so I'd better get moving. Hope you have a great week, guys.
