Merry Christmas

Image
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas  and a big thank you from myself.  May you're day be spent with those dearest to you  and if your like me and missing a  fair few of them, then I hope you can feel their love in spirit. 
My gift to you is  something my friend quoted at just the right time and something I've remembered for the rest of the year .
"Don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy we'll all float on...  all right."
It's helped me so maybe it can help you too. xxxx

Dye the World

I wish I had kept the packaging for these tights because now I have no idea where they came from other than the markets.
I have a bit of a thing for tie dye at the moment so I was super happy to find these tights which I also have in black and white.
I really miss market shopping , I haven't been in a while and it's my absolute favourite.
I'll have to make the effort to go soon !

Eeeeeek less than a week till christmas, I'm not ready in the slightest , hope your all better off than me .

A Dreamer Dreams, She Never Dies

Image

 Clearly watching The Virgin Suicides Way to often. I also believe I will never tire of anything that that is white, dreamy and/or involves clouds.
Since I started my new job not to long ago, a few of the sites I like to peruse are blocked so I have been scouring Tumblr instead and decided to make my own . http://she--is--electric.tumblr.com/ It's not  incredibly fashion related just a mish mash of things that catch my eye/mind. You can have a look if you like but I don't mind .
Hope Christmas isn't stressing  you out to much !

This may be a suprise but I very rarely wear heals . Although I love them, they make everything a huge deal for some reason . I'd much prefer to run about in my creepers any-time day or night and I do. As you can tell this pair are rather dirty because of how often I use them . I find them so handy for when I walk off path and find myself slipping down hills and grabbing branches for dear life.
I went to a shopping centre this weekend for the first time in forever. It wasn't a pleasant experience to say the least. I can't stand the commercial side of Christmas and the chaos that comes with it. I did however treat myself to the new Black Keys album El Camino which is incredible. Had them on repeat for practically my entire Sunday. So delighted I will be watching them live in February . Hooray !

I wish I could walk around looking like a nights sky.
Back home where my parents live they have the most amazing night's sky I have ever seen, out of this world, clear , bright and beautiful. I would often go for walks on a hot night, to find somewhere I could just lay staring at the moon and the stars in the sky.  I honestly miss it so much.

It's only just starting to feel really cold here in the UK. I don't mind it so far to be honest.  I love the fresh air on my face, looking at a white frosty field, being able to see my breath,drinking mulled wine and wearing a nice coat.  I am however going to invest in a nice pair of cream tights for the next time I wear this outfit.  My legs didn't feel to bad however they weren't looking the best. 




I just want to be one true thing that don't fade.

I literally cannot believe how quickly the year has flown by
It's weird how time feels as though it goes quicker as you get get older.
I was in shock the other day when I realised, it's less than a month till christmas.
I'm really looking forward to christmas this year, not exactly sure why , but I have a good feeling about it .
Lets hope my feelings are right.

Baby Says

My aunty said I look like baby in this outfit? Therefore  named the post after a song  by The Kills which I really love at the moment . 
Currently I have been wearing a printed tee  thrown over tights a lot lately .
It's basically the easiest outfit ever.  I also found this vintage fur jacket the other week which keeps me so warm .  I know it's fur which a lot of people don't agree with .  What I can say though is that I dont wear fur unless it's vintage and definitely not an endangered species.  Apparently fur is also better for the environment because it doesn't require so many chemicals. 
Anyway I hope I haven't offended to many people and that you can enjoy the post .  

So Cute

It can be so easy to forget how beautiful the world is, especially when confronted with the not so pretty.  I love how a walk outside with my ipod in hand, instantly reminds of how incredibly beautiful the world is.  England has been especially good to me at letting me know this .  Nature here is amazing . 
On a more fashion conscious train of though the necklace I'm wearing in this outfit is so strange and interesting. It has the shape of a tooth inside the triangle. I actually cannot stop wearing it at the moment .  I've also found it hard to take off this coat as well, with the weather quickly getting cooler .
