Rumaging through my Wardrobe...

Another quick visit home meant that I have begun clearing out things that I no longer need in my room, ready for the crazy amount of stuff I have accumulated over the past couple of years at Uni. So out went a pile of old magazines for recycling and a bunch of old clothes to be donated to charity. I pulled out an old Topshop Denim blazer which I bought about 5 years ago. I was about to throw it out when I realised it's potential! It was clearly during my customising phase as I had to pull off a gazillion iron-on patches of flowers and peace signs and I think you can still make out the daisy buttons that are still attached in the first picture. I shudder to think what was going through my 16 year old mind back then! Of course I pulled them off by the time I took the second photo! I rolled the sleeves up and pulled the lapels up and wore it with my New Look belt and voilà, the transformation is complete and it's definitely a keeper! Don't you just love it when you discover something new in old clothes?

Hair- Urban Outfitters Patent black Bow (not that you can really see it!)
Clothes- TopShop T-shirt, TopShop Denim Blazer, H&M jeans, New Look Belt.
Shoes- Topshop Navy Heels.

My sister is off to spend some well earned cash in London today, I'm jealous but I do need to stay away from the shops if I want any decent spending money on holiday. Though if there is time tomorrow I might pop into a few vintage shops and see if I can spot any cheap bargains. I might also buy some false eyelashes for the soirée on Friday, but I've never worn them in my life!
