The pretty lies, the ugly truth




(Stripe/ Floral top: Primark, Gold tip skirt: Zara, Belt: Karl Lagerfeld, Brown wedges: Topshop, Purse: Mulberry) #teenvogue

Got some high definition goosebumps going on there. My poor legs suffer so much, I really should just wear tights.

This belt was oh so much of a bargain. When I used to volunteer in my local charity shop I was tasked with going through their stock, tidying it up and organising it. I came across this belt and a Ralph Lauren one in a tangle of pleather belts. Promptly telling the ladies that these two belts were actually worth some money I watched her mark it up at £5 so bought it with an extra donation. I loved volunteering in that charity shop, it was great fun, the older ladies were adorable and some of the donations were hilarious. 

Also a bit of a bargain was this top from Primark, it looks very Topshop and if it was in Topshop it would be 7 times the price. I rarely go in Primark because I find it really stressful. But me and my friend sucked it up and had a go. I mainly came out with mens clothes... for a DIY that I started today. I did notice that Primark is now not so much of a bargain, it is now pretty similar pricing to Forever 21 and H&M, it is good that the child labour they must have previously been using are now getting a better wage.

With love from,
