Since payday is creeping ever so closer (it feels like a life time since Ive received a decent amount of pennies into my bank account) I have a number of essentials on my wish list for the winter months to follow. I seen this grey jersey dress last week in store and knew it had to be in my wardrobe as soon as. Being back at uni a few weeks has been a struggle to find outfit that's are cosy and casual. This dress could easily be layered up with a cardigan, leather jacket,hat, scarf and biker boots all of above. The lace panel dress also Topshop I thought could be made causal by wearing with a grey chunky knit granny style cardigan... one I've yet to find on the high street. But the dress could also be dressed up for evening time too. I need to make a trip to Primark and stock up on some socks to wear under boots to create a casual look but also to keep my toes cosy!

When looking online at Topshop's Tumblr blog I seen this outfit idea... Another way to style the above grey dress....
I spotted a fringed collar exactly the same if not the actual one in this photo a couple of weeks ago on eBay, just a pity i never imagine it could look that good. I'm gonna keep my eyes open though fingers crossed another one comes up.

Its gonna be a long week ... Roll on Friday :(

September Purchases...

From the start of the month I had a clear wish list, as I always do the moment I complete a wish list I'm onto the next. Here is my successful buys from last month...
I have realise I have a tendency to buy too much of a good thing ... such as Topshop latest boots. I LOVE THEM and i want more. The boots with a zip are Ambush and the Chelsea style are Allegra. The faux leather shorts are H&M and leather look trousers Topshop. The tops are all Topshop (And Finally Fleetwood Mac T-shirt,Leopard heart Top and Crochet Collar Blouse). Since im in between jobs pennies are none existent right now so window shopping it is...

Back Blogging!!!

I realise it has been a while since my last post, due to starting back at uni. Having only been back a couple of weeks, we are expected to organise a placement for next semester. . Living in Aberdeen... A city with little opportunity in terms of fashion related work I have been looking to local newspapers to hopefully get a place writing for the women’s fashion and lifestyle sections.
 When doing some research I came across a new local paper to have started up. When I seen the advert for reporters/ writers to contribute for the paper. I immediately replied to the advert. After a shameful interview, leaving with little hope of ever hearing back from them again, i returned home with little enthusiasm but I received an emailing asking me to send some examples of work i had done for university. After that i sat hitting the refresh button about fifty times a minute. Finally inbox had one message... I was successful. I was asked to write a new article for the following Friday. Not only have i got my work experience sorted for next semester but also have a weekly column to attend to.
So it’s safe to say I’m pretty chuffed with myself  :)  The editor said he will take me on full time for my placement next year. This is the opportunity I need to get some much needed experience for when i graduate.
