Slice of that Loaf
I'll have a slice of that style
I'd been looking for some smart shoes that weren't boots, and they ended up being closer and cheaper than I ever could have hoped for; one floor away infact, and free, thanks to mum's winter shoe sorting.
I went through a phase of wearing loafers to school, but these are definitely a step up from shoe-zone's finest. ^ Vintage Clarks - higher quality than I could afford new, in the size I hoped for, but hadn't yet found thrifted - you can really see how styles come right back around. I personally prefer the plainer of the 2 pairs, but it doesn't hurt that the other's buckle is really on trend, and hand-me-down is a risk free way to try the trend out.

I call this 'Iced Latte'
When your drink matches your aesthetic
All black, a great backdrop for a great jacket - and yes, I definitely have too many jackets in similar tones, but they are all different, and I'm an 'If it ain't broke, buy another one' kinda girl. This example from Zara, £2 in still stitched pockets condition, maintains that the total cost of my collection is less than £20 - a lot less than I've spent cumulatively on the coffee. It makes sense that I like the drink, since I am obsessed with the colour (although I'm not really that extra). & yes, Nero is the best.

Size SackWhy you should search every secondhand every section
I love my denim shirt dresses, but with 2 very similar, it can look repetitive, even when I haven't been outfit repeating. So when I saw a black, T-shirt style denim dress - originally TOPSHOP - it was worth a second look. Size 6 that is beyond oversized (wouldn't be surprised if it was wrongly sized), it's not the most flattering of things - but it leans more exaggerated artist overalls than bin bag. It would also make the perfect canvas (pardon the pun) for a little DIY. Distressing? Patches? Reconstruction? Who am I kidding?
