glitter all over the room..

octopus necklace: gift

knitted vest: h&m

skirt: new look

shoes: irregular choice

the other day i was doing some more of the clearing out of the heaps of clothing in my flat, and i came across this skirt, which i had kind of forgotten i'd came from new look earlier in the year, and i think i wore it once and then chucked it in a pile behind the screen in my bedroom when i was having a manic tidy (usually about 5mins before guests are due to arrive)..

i added this knitted top, i always forget how frustrated i get when i catch my keys in the knit of this - and lo and behold i managed to do it before i had even left the house - fail! and the necklace hasn't helped this either, it got caught earlier as well, but i always think this top needs some kind of long necklace to give it a bit more of a shape..i've been wearing this one a lot recently, the octopus reminds me of betsey johnson jewellery, which i love (although i don't yet own any)..

and the shoes, i figured something yellow would be good, and i don't have anything much more yellow than these, gingham and bananas!

i'm hating the weather at the moment, it's just begun to rain in an insanely heavy manner..i'm off for a day in bham tomorrow, for a 'girlguiding media-spokesperson' training session, and then off to the bham bloggers meet up, which i'm a little nervous about - mainly for what on earth to wear..
