New hair


Over the past few years my hair has been in a constant state of flux between short then growing  for months as long as possible (sometimes as long as 6 months) then getting it cut short again which I actually have to do in order to tidy it up and get rid off all the dead ends. Every time I do get it chopped I actually love it shorter but I'm too damn lazy to keep a steady routine of visiting the hair dressers, and I cant justify spending that sum of money for a simple blunt cut and hacking a few inches off. But then as it gets longer I want really long hair. I'm so indecisive. There was a time back in Australia when my Dad was there I turned around and said look Father I need to chop 3 inches off pronto and handed him a pair of kitchen scissors. Props to him he did a very good job. It wasn't until I was scouted to be hair model for a trainee stylist in a very fancy salon that they noticed there was about a 3mm length difference on either side of my hair. Not even noticeable to the average untrained eye. I did the exact same thing to my mum yesterday. I turned around and said Mum I need a hair cut. I thought I'd get a pair of proper hair dressing scissors, although £5 from Wilko they probably are no better than kitchen scissors, my mother also did a very good job at chopping my mop. Its not like I have a proper style that needs lots of maintenance. I may as well save my self some dollar dollar if I can get the job done free and to a good enough standard pour moi right? Cheers Mum and Dad my personal hair stylists.

The perfect camel

 

Coat- Charity shop, T- Dotti via charity shopm Jeans- Gap via charity shop, Bag- Next, Shoes- Converse

One thing thats been on my wish list for the longest time is a camel coat, and after seeing mega girl crush Zoe Kravitz rocking head to toe camel I really had to get one. There is always plenty around on the high street but I could never find one that I was 100% about. I wanted a floor length but could I find one that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg? eer definitely not. I went charity shopping with my mum and nan in Chichester and hanging right there as I walked into the door of Oxfam in the vintage section was this absolute beauty. Its a wool and cashmere blend and only cost me, wait for wait for it, £15. There is no way that this is anything close to that in value. I almost didn't get it seeing as its know officially spring. But a camel coat is something that never goes out of style and will keep for years. I actually went out wearing my blue leather jacket but it turned out to be a hell of a lot windier and colder in Chichester so after getting this I did quick changeroo and this became my ootd. Its so comfy and feels so amazing one and is exactly what I had in mind for my perfect camel coat. I kinda want it to stay colder for a bit longer now so that I can wear it more. In all seriousness though, warm weather hurry the f***k up please.

Double D


Jacket- Just Jeans, Denim shirt- Charity shop, Jeans- H&M, Boots- Primark, Bag- Next

Double denim is one of those trends that has come and gone several times over the past years. At first I was against it then I actually tried it a few years back with another shirt from a charity shop identical to this one and I kind of fell in love with it. I was quite pleased to see that it was a trend for spring/ summer this year. I immediately went on a hunt in all my local charity shops for a shirt as I know that it is the best place to get one with out spending loads on the high street. Piece of advise when charity/ thrift shopping, always always always check the mens section. That's where I found this oversized lovely. A tip for wearing double denim is to have different washes other wise it looks to matchy matchy. It also adds a nice contrast to the outfit. I love DD teamed with leather as well, I think it just sets of the whole look.
