I can't quite believe I am still wearing tights at the tail end of May, where is the sun? My mum actually got me these tights and some other colours on sale, I like the strange mustard-y colour. Plus they go with my latest jumble sale bag, found yesterday. It's Etienne Aigner and was only 50p. I went to a few jumble sales yesterday but didn't really find anything too spectacular, it is really getting tough to find anything pre-1980's in these places.  On the other hand, I did find a small haul of 1970s Puffin children's book with the most interesting illustrations. I think they might look good framed too. I am undecided on this necklace - I am not usually into such bold jewellery. I think i chose it  because it reminded me of some great 70s necklaces I saw in the British design exhibition at the V&A, which is very much worth visiting in my view. Not much else really, I've been trying to really embrace all that living in London has to offer and trying to find my place within that. On that note I off to the South Bank for dinner now. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Cardigan - Gap
Necklace -COS
Silk top - Jumble sale
Quilted skirt - Comptoir des Cotonntiers/charity shop
Vintage tights - Gift
Shoes - Henry Holland/Debenhams

Well the weather acting like its Autumn is making it hard for me to know what to wear right now. I keep wanting to wear light pastel coloured things but end up back in darker colours and more cold weather wear. It's not so bad since it means I can wear this skirt. I found it in a charity shop and took it in a little at the sides and now I really like it. It's a not too in your face floral pattern and it's quilted, I like the different textures. The silk top is a great colour but it has obviously suffered some bleach or something and has some green marks on it. I was thinking of trying to dye it or bleach it another colour, anyone have any experience or tips about dying fabric?
