Forever I've Known Nothing Stays Forever, Can We Still Try?

Red Rose Headband - Crown & Glory
Cherub Necklace - Topshop
Brocade Dress - Forever 21 (old)
Black Stud Bag - Primark
Black Strap Boots - Primark

This is what I wore today while helping my friend source clothing for her new vintage venture. We had a lovely time looking for some gorgeous bits for her to sell and even found a few treasures for ourselves too. Tomorrow I am going to pop round her house and try on some of the things to show you some of the gorgeous bits she has found.

This is a dress I bought from Forever 21 while I worked there last year. It is such a good winter dress as the fabric is quite thick and the print just reminds me of all things festive. I did wear it with a hoodie and my studded denim jacket as I would have frozen just like this. My necklace and headband are pay day purchases, I love everything Crown & Glory do especially their 'Whole Lotta Rosie' headbands. I bought the black one too which will also be making lots of appearances on my blog I am sure. Just because it is winter does not mean I will stop wearing flowers in my hair!

The Maccabees get my song of the day with Forever I've Known from their third album Give To The Wild. I love The Maccabees so much it is unreal. I remember seeing them at college in Portsmouth for the first time and getting my setlist signed by the whole band, that piece of paper is still treasured and on my bedroom wall. I have probably seen them at least ten times over the years and every time is is just unreal. Last week we bought tickets to see The Black Keys in Amsterdam with The Maccabees as support. I have yet to see them play their new album live and would say without a doubt I am more excited to see them than The Black Keys!
