When words elude me all I can simply type is OOTD. Although... I bet you all thought you had been let off then. This dress is something I bought to wear in summer, however I never got round to it... Okay, okay I forgot I had it, but to wear it in winter I simply layered with a Jumper and jacket and I was good to go.

P.s Sorry about the lack of pictures. The wind and my hair generally don't mix well and the faces I make when they start mixing is the stuff of nightmares, so really, I am saving you from sleepless nights.

Pretty Woman





The over the knee boot is this winters go to footwear, but how can you wear them without the pretty woman subtext? Aka; looking like a hooker! It is a real shame, as they so elegantly provide a sleek line to compliment your outfit while rather practically keeping you warm. They are sort of like a control pant for your lower limbs. Have I sold you on this trend yet? Really... The control pant and hooker spiel didn't win you over? I do actually really love over the knee boots and socks despite my previous jibes, they are incredibly easy to wear and they really can be worn with everything. The boots I am wearing with today’s outfit don’t quite come over the knee so I have simply added over the knee black socks to give the same effect. I think one of the main reasons I enjoy wearing these boots in winter is because it’s a change from tights which, can be less than appealing sometimes. There is really nothing I hate more, or is less attractive, than having to stop every five steps to hike your crotch back up into position and lets face it, we have all had to do the ‘tight dance’ at some point. Although recently, one of my friends commented saying 'You should always wear tights with these boots to avoid the pretty woman comment', but I think she is wrong the whole point of the boots is to add drama. Now, after preaching about not looking like a prostitute I should of perhaps not have taken these pictures on a street corner. For me the over the knee boot adds a hint of sex appeal in an otherwise oversized and 'Mannish' dominated season.
What do you think of over the knee boots or do you think they are slightly more street corner then high end?

Magazine Feature

It would appear I am in Look Magazine this week and I can only apologise that you have to see my ugly mug splashed all over your fashion mag. Maybe I should make like Batman or Lady Gaga and buy a mask? The outfit picture they have used is from a WIWT post (details of my outfit is on the link).

P.s How cool is the girls outfit next to me? Serious fashion envy!!

Bargain Hunt



This season I have fallen in love with the Celine print and although it is way out of my price range, I managed to find this amazing dress in a similar print for £26 pounds. Such a bargain!! What do you think?
