You Could Have It All, Dear

Bowler Hat - H&M
Green Plaid Shirt - Topshop (old)
Grey Marl T-shirt - Topshop
Black Zip Leather Skirt - Topshop
Gold Ruffle Socks - Topshop
Agyness Deyn X Dr Martens Creepers

This is one of those really awkward outfits where I realise afterwards I am wearing all Topshop. Working 30 hours a week there it is hard not to accumulate an abundance of clothing and find yourself walking out the door in head to toe Topshop on a regular basis. Not that I mind, I genuinely think it is the best place on the high street for everything from basic pieces to on trend statement makers. 

This little leather skirt has been worn on a regular basis since I got it, however it has not yet made its way onto my blog. I love leather skirts but feel the skater dress/skirt thing is a bit very 'done,' so I fell heart over heels for this A-Line version instead. The little gold zips make it a dream for tucking things into although I preferred it un-tucked for this look. 

I am heading into London tomorrow lunch time for my interview, so I shall be sure to tell you all how that goes this week! I will try and capture some outfit pictures before I go too, as I quite like my ensemble for tomorrow (if I do say so myself).

For fan of: The Smiths

The song of the day today is 'Become What You Are' by Merchandise. I read about Merchandise in last weeks NME (yes, and?) and was instantly intrigued. Hailing from Florida, Merchandise had a lot to do with their local punk scene before breaking into the mainstream last year. An insanely gorgeous sounding band they have just released the first track from their new EP 'Anxiety's Door'.

    We have a skirt like that in work.. I might get it on uniform. Quick Q: are Topshop really strict on wearing full uniform? (as in, on the shop floor, full price, not fragment) I'm thinking grad VM job and this seems petty but I want to work somewhere I can wear my own clothes.

  3. I love that skirt! Your little socks are so cute too. Good luck for tomorrow! xo
