Back To Basics

Monday, 27 February 2012



I'm back! Not that you'll have missed me, but I have really felt the lack of bloggage recently and I'm sorry for it. February is always a fully ridiculous month in terms of work/life balance though and life is only just starting to take back over.

How better to ease back than with an outfit post? Nice and simple, green and with some Irregular Choice shoes. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...


Dress - AX Paris via charity shop
Blouse - present from Vix
Shoes - Irregular Choice, Christmas present from Char
. I have wanted these FOREVER. She is fricking awesome.

How did the hair get so ginormous? Princess Leia(ish) buns, that's how:

Don't quite have the guts to go out like this normally...

Anyway gang, what's new with you? Have I missed anything good during the stupid month of being stupidly busy?

    The blouse is lush and I adore the shoes. Moved to West Sussex recently and went to Brighton last week and stumbled across the Irregular Choice shop. If ONLY I could wear heels.........

  6. You must wear your hair in those buns more often, they look great!
    Those shoes are fab-u-lous! I think I am (Irregular Choice) green with envy; but, like Gem, don't get on with high heels!
    It's grand to have you back lass!

  8. You manage to choose the LOVELY irregular choice shoes.

    I must admit I'm often a little scared when I see their name pop up in blog posts otherwise, given that so many of them appear to be designed by some kind of evil mastermind - "Hmmm, yes, lets have pale green perspex heel, orange and blue plaid with a picture of an orang-utan or a seahorse and, yes, yes, I know, a plastic 99 flake. And lets add some dalmation fur on the inside, but give it an open toe and rubber laces. The bloggers will kick each other to death for these! Mwahahahaha!"

    And breathe. Sorry. I've had some bad experiences in Schuh. I think maybe I don't cope very well with shoes. Or feet.
