Shades of Green and Siblings.

I went shopping with my mom today but it wasn't very successful. I wanted a new book to take with me to Hong Kong but nothing took my fancy in the bookstore. So I plan to make a shortlist of books tonight by checking out some reviews on Amazon and go in tomorrow with a list. Are there any books that you guys have read and think that I should consider?

The only thing I did manage to buy were some tights. I considered getting the ones with the seam running up the back with the sweet little bows. I didn't get them and opted for a spangly gold pair instead but I might return and get the other ones seeing as they were only £3 in the in sale at John Lewis but only a very light grey pair were left.

Both pairs of tights were Emilio Cavallini and you get get hold of the seam pair from but unfortunately they aren't in the sale on that website.We all know that layers make all the difference to old clothes. So I layered a top over a black dress. The really old topshop top which has a cute babydoll shape to it, has a little bow detail at the front and has a tiny leaf design all over it which influenced the choice of the springy, leafy background. I wore a lighter green cardigan to brighten up the duller green and black.

I'm wearing...

Black dress (Vila), Top (Topshop), Cardigan (Oasis), Shoes (Barrats), Hair clip (Accessorize) Bag (TopShop)

I have been asking my sister if I could photograph her because she is quite the stylish lady! Finally she agreed and hopefully we'll see more of her on this blog, so here she is...

Shes Wearing...
