This is just a quick outfit post I'm afraid because I've been really busy this week writing abstracts for conference papers (deadline is tomorrow and I've already sent them off =]) and trying to get a head start on the next chapter of my thesis (not going so well).
This is what I wore yesterday:
What I'm wearing:
Jumper : From a discount clothes store for £10; I've spent all autumn and winter trying to find a black cable knit jumper without any 'stuff' on it; I didn't want spiked shoulders or a 'trendy' skull (anyone else feel like they can't wear skulls at the moment because they are so fashionable?) I finally found this jumper just before we went to Cardiff.
Collar: New Look £4.99. Likewise I couldn't find a detachable collar I liked in black (they all had sequins on them!) but I thought this white one was cute and I don't mind the pearls.
Ankh necklace: From Oasis Markets (alternative indoor market) in Birmingham.
Skirts: Top one is from River Island via a swap shop, bottom one is my beloved Lace Skirt from New Look.
Leggings: New Look £5 in the sale on Tuesday. I don't like leggings (too many bad childhood memories) but I have to admit they are comfy and there are a lot of nice designs out there at the moment! So this is my 3rd pair this year!
I brought the leggings because I've been wanting to buy some cool tights but I couldn't really afford any of the ones I really liked, like these Pamela Mann ones which look quite similar. Although I would say that Pamela Mann tights are worth the money; I've been given a couple of pairs as presents in the past and they are really good quality; even I haven't managed to get holes in them, my budget is a bit tight right now!
Ash thought I looked a bit like a nun in this outfit =P
I however was a bit worried that I looked... trendy? Have I been seduced by mainstream fashion this season? After all everything I'm wearing can be found on the high street. What do you guys think?
