This is what I wore today. The heart print sweater is from zara, i love it to pieces. The velvet skirt, brogues and tights are all from Primark. the brogues hurt my feet alot when i first wore them, but thankfully my feet have moulded into them now :p

Last week was really crazy, i started uni again and have been loaded with so much work, essays, projects etc and tomorrow i start my sewing lessons which i'm scared about!

Remember the floral skirt I bought from the charity shop the other day? I shortened it and it looks perrrrrfect. :3

I also went sale shopping the other day and got this heart print sweater from zara, £14.99 from £25 or £30 I think, i've had my eye on it for ages.

My secound semester begins tomorrow and i feel really lazy, though i'm kind of looking forward to things going back to normal again, it just feels like fresher's week part 2 when i had no idea what was going on, and i was basically dead all the time.
I want to go shopping but may just end up drawing and listening to the strokes today. :)
ps, please check out my ebay items, the link is in the sidebar.

 Yesturday I went to the charity shops, and as usual, Leeds provided some lovely things :) I got a plaid shirt for £1.49 and a body-con floral corduroy skirt for £3.99. I have seen alot of sleeveless plaid shirts in vintage shops for £25, I refuse to pay over £10 for something I could easily find secound hand and alter myself. This was my first attempt:

I might put this on my ebay later if anyone is interested. 
Last night I watched Taken, which was really good. I might watch another horror/thriller tonight, maybe Hausu or Shutter Island. 
Today I think I will shorten the skirt I bought yesturday. I want to buy lots of secound hand clothes and alter them to replicate the ones in vintage shops. 

By the way, I have recently put a few things up on my ebay,  please take a look :)

Hello. The other night I stayed up until 2am watching movies, 'The Dreamers' and 'The Lovely Bones'. Both of them were kind of weird, but i think weird films are interesting:) My plan last night was to go to bed early, but instead I stayed up reconstructing and organising my's very difficult when half of my stuff is in Leeds and the other half here. It makes it difficult to pack for when I leave on Sunday, I don't want to take all my pictures and stuff off the wall..but then my room at uni will be very boring and depressing..
