And also

I went shopping today after my philosophy exam and I got some bargains. I managed to get a navy Bourjois So Laque nail polish from Boots for only €2 and I got a Betty Boop shorts and string top set from Dunnes for €7. It's pyjamas, but I figure that after a few months when no one else remembers it being pyjamas I can wear it out at night. The shorts look good with tights, I tried it on earlier.

I might take photos tomorrow if I get a chance.


I just saw this post over on Style Bubble and I think I'm in love with some of those clothes.

I need a job!

Wooo, ooh, ooh.

I had a look today to see if I could find some fabric to re-create the yellow dress in the last post, since I'm broke. It looks like a pretty easy style to copy, even with my lack of a sewing machine and quite rubbish sewing skills. Wunderweb all the way!
Anyway, the best I could find was some yellow gingham, which seemed a little too heavy. I dunno though, I might give it a go. On the plus side I found some pretty cool fabrics, obviously meant for a child's bedlinen or something that would make some awesome skirts/dresses. I'm in a DIY'ing mood right now and since I'm finished college for the summer I don't have much to do.

Window shopping online :D

It's the best because I don't have a credit card so I can't actually spend any money. If I want to buy anything I have to go hound my mum or sister for their cards.

That being said I may need to track them down soon, look at these beauties!

These can be bought here for €9.60.
As you lot have probably gathered, I love tights. I don't think I've ever owned polka dotted tights before, and I can think of so many outfits these would work with.

Can be bought here for €7.20.
These tights are so cute and girly, I'd love to pair them with a biker jacket or something studded to soften the toughness of the leather and studs.

Here for €12.
I usually hate footless tights, but I think I need these in my life.

I wasn't too impressed with the latest Kate Moss collection for Topshop, but there were two items which I really liked.

This Daisy Print Tea Dress, £60, is adorable and would look great with white plimsoles for the summer. I love the collar and the nipped-in waist.

I didn't think much of this Sailor Cardigan when I saw it on the hanger, but once I tried it on I fell in love. It fits like a dream and is just overall perfection in the shape of a cardigan. I love cardigans and this is possibly my favourite since my cream Topshop one I bought two years ago. (Which I just happen to be wearing today, an outfit post will follow)
Oh Topshop, why must you tease me with beautiful cardigans while I'm so unemployed?

Outside of the Kate Moss collection there are lots of other covetable clothes in Topshop right now, I'll run you through my pick of them.

There are Super Long Leggings by Boutique. I'm quite tall (5'9'') and I find it hard to find leggings long enough. I already have Topshop's extra long leggings, but they're just no long enough. These look perfect, look at the rutched effect at the ankles!

I've wanted a Reko dress ever since I first saw them on Lady Luck Rules OK a few years ago. I've never gotten around to buying one, but these two are gorgeous.

Available here for £40.

I actually saw the blue Reko dress in Topshop a few days ago and said to my friend "wow that dress is lovely, but it looks like it's a Reko dress". I checked the tag but it said nothing about Reko. It was only when I was 'shopping' online that I realised I was right!

I'm not usually a jumper fan, I wear the in the morning when I get out of bed, but I tend not to look at them as fashionable items. But for some reason these jumpers from Illustrated People really appeal to me 1 and 2. I particularly like the heart on the second one, zoom in and look at the detail!

This £20 t-shirt is gorgeous! I'm very picky about t-shirts but this one seems to meet all of my requirements.
Love love love this yellow dress!
It's only £28 too, bargain! And it's got pockets!! I love dresses with pockets soooo much. This is the perfect summer dress and if I ever manage to find a job I feel that it shall be my dress of summer '09.

I'm loving this spotty ballerina-esque dress too, perfect for nights out.

You can't see the zips very well in the photos, unfortunately, but I'm intrigued as to how they'd look. The top is a great shape though so hopefully they'll get it in stock in Topshop in Galway so I can take a closer look.

I'm loving how this cardigan drapes. It looks amazing.

These hippy-ish shorts are so summery and pretty, I love them!
1 and 2. I'd wear them with these embroidered flats, these bangles (they had nicer ones a few weeks ago, but they're gone!), a flowy floral top and long curly hair. Bring on the summer!
