Patterned Legs.

17 February 2009

I tried to go on a shopping ban this month but it really failed half way through. It started off as a nice day out with the sisters starting off at Yo! Sushi...where we were too hungry to count all our dishes and we were quite shocked at how much the bill came to. Luckily it was a treat to ourselves using a bit of our Chinese New Year money (laisee) Then my mom tells me about the £10 sushi buffet in a different restaurant (Shogun Teppanyaki in the Mailbox in Birmingham) which clearly, will be the better option next time!

Following this we tottered off to Topshop (with rather full bellies) and I decided to try on these grey gothic lace leggings that Topshop have had in store for quite a while now. They're pretty fun to layer up, especially to revive the collection of footless tights that I have not touched since Spring 2008.
Purple Dress (AA), Sheer Blouse (Topshop Boutique) Handknitted Vest (from Grandma), Lace leggings (Topshop) Blue footless tights (Probably Topshop too), Belt (Oasis) Necklace (Miss Selfridge)

I am completely in love with the crazily bright coloured tights and accessories from the Marc Jacobs show. No guesses as to which legs are mine. I am definitely inspired to try some bright colours underneath my new lace tights...
