outfit 4

Peach shirt : Thrifted
Belt : hand-made by my brother
Skirt : Thrifted
Pinch-punch first day of the month i love August my birthday month. This has to be the comfiest outfit i own, i wore it the other day, as you can see my old hair colour. I am pretty un-decided about the colour i have at the moment (black currant) i think its too dark, I haven't exactly managed a tan this summer. 
It has recently come to my attention that i am a lover of patterns i never really noticed this before, the thrifted peach top has tiny little white spots on, another charity shop find it has mini shoulder pads. My brother says that this outfit looks like something a 1940's housewife would wear (i don't mind). Speaking of old and vintage my little caravan "betty" is coming along nicely me & dad have cleaned out the interior and have painted the walls inside a nice cornflower blue and white, it looks pretty awesome. I will be taking a few pictures later. I am heading into Oxford today, one of my favorite shopping and sight-seeing places, its pretty magical there amongst the history and the intelligent people, its really worth a look around i know i am bound to be spending alot of  money on things today...today i am on the hunt for the perfect satchel.

It is 25 days till my birthday, so i have decided that running up to the day, i will be doing 1 give away per week, i will be starting it tomorrow so get involved...the prizes will be a mix of vintage and hand-made.

  3. This outfit is beautiful. I don't own any long skirts, so must get myself some, or make them.
    I have not been to Oxford for many years now. We got totally lost the last time and decided to head back home. My mum and I were sitting on the edge of a pavement once in Oxford, then this guy (I think he was Japanese) turned up with a camera and took a photo of us. He must of thought we were tramps. Creepy and weird.
