HOWEVER, last weekend I headed up to Manchester to watch the Stone Roses loooong-awaited reunion gig at Heaton Park. Hmmn... Manchester and a festival... it's like I was purposely hunting down wet weather and yes indeed the rain did reign. BUT, the gig was AWESOME! Music is another of my obsessions and there's nothing like dancing in a field to a fantastic band to make my soul shine, even when the sun does not. Sigh. It also helped that I dressed weather-appropriate, if not exactly at my most stylish... here's my poncho pic, accessorised with a pint of cider (not my first, hence the expression). P.S. I've never yet managed to find a 'petite' poncho and they do tend to drown me, no matter how small the size:
Poncho: Primark (size XS)
Hoodie: Topshop (size 8)
Wellies: Miss Selfridge (size 5)
Headband: New Look
I've actually worn some great outfits this week and MUST TRY HARDER to capture them digitally. The only one I have managed to is what I'm wearing right now and actually it involves one of my favourite shirts that I wear to death and usually snatch it off the drying rack to don without wasting any time in ironing the poor thing. Sorry about the creases, but I just couldn't wait. (I'm also wearing it underneath all the layers in the pic above, but promise it's been washed in the meantime).
Shirt: Topshop (size 8)
Vest: H&M (size 8)
Leggings: Topshop Petite (size 8)
Fake Cons: Primark (size 4)
Well don't I have a lot to say today. I'm now going to bang on about the two purchases I made this week that feature in the above pic. Firstly my supercute necklace... loving the silver/antique gold combo and who WOULDN''T want to monkey around in this? (Sorry).
Next up, fake Cons. I wouldn't normally touch such a thing with a proverbial, however I found these in Primark and they were ONLY SIX QUID so I just couldn't help myself. I even picked up a pink pair too, I was so overwhelmed at how Cons-vincing they are. And cheap cheap cheap :)
