Dungarees and Pussy Bow Blouse

I love this outfit, it has a real 70s vibe, all with clothes I've owned for ages. I love it when you feel so on trend without buying anything new, just coming up with new ways of wearing old clothes. My dungarees and hat are from Select and my blouse I think I got at a jumble sale on the portobello road. I just wish I had a pair of flared dungarees.

Baseball Cap

A more boyish outfit than I usually wear, but I love my cap. It was only a pound in Primark and I feel a bit like a Monki model in this outfit.

House of Hufflepuff

Everyone always wants to be in Griffindor, Slytherin or if they think they're clever Ravenclaw. I know I'd be in the house of useless but good looking people - hufflepuff. It's great because there's always hufflepuff merch left. Listen to this amazing Mitchell and Webb sketch about most noble house of Hufflepuff here

Brooklyn tee and denim button front skirt

Of all the trends, I never thought I'd be obsessed by the 70s - actually I expected to hate it. I'm probably heavily influenced by rewatching that 70s show on Netflix which is one of my all time favourites. I got this tee off the kids section at new look, because it was not only nicer than the adult one but was also a pound cheaper. Hooray for no VAT. Skirt is from select.

Striped Dress and Denim Jacket

I've got a real thing at the minute for wearing denim with stripes at the moment. I don't know where that's come from...

This dress was only £14.99 in H&M. It's like they're going back to the price points they had when I was teenager, much cheaper that recently.

Flares and cropped tee

This is one of those times when visual merchandising really worked on me. These jeans and this crop tee were together in Topshop and I just couldn't have one without the other. I must have tried on every pair of flares on the high street before I went back to buy the first pair I'd seen in Topshop.

Fluffy White Clueless Bag

God, I am obsessed with rucksacks at the moment aren't i? This one I made myself (using these instructions here and adapting them slightly) to look like Cher's white fluffy rucksack in Clueless. I used fake leather and long hair fur which I got from Fabric Land (I know the website is terrifying but I promise it's a legit company which great fabric for cheap)

Leopard Dress

I saw this dress in ES magazine and then had to go to 5 different Zara's trying to buy it. Probably their plan, because I kept buying other things in there... It was worth the hunt though, it's super cute and was only £17.99 - bargain! Sometimes I forget that Zara can be really cheap.

Inflatable Rucksack

So continuing my love of 90s looking rucksacks, I went and bought an inflatable rucksack. Sure it's see-thru and everyone can see what's in my bag, but really what's in there that's so bad? And I can't put anything pointy in, but it's not like I carry a compass or something around. I got it from eBay for £4 so even if it pops, it's no great loss. 

Everyone who has seen it has told me what colour theirs was in the 90s. Mine was blue and kinda metallic. What colour was yours?

Phone Cases

I got a new phone recently so I got to go and buy a bunch of new phone cases. My favourite place to get phone cases is from China on eBay. They take ages to arrive but they only cost a couple of pounds. I really like the clear ones that show off the pretty rose gold colour.

Whist looking for new phone cases I rediscovered Claire's Accessories. I haven't shopped there since I was about 13, but they sell some wicked cool phone cases. They sell cases for like every type of phone (a girl in New Look told me if you don't have an iPhone it can be a bugger to find phone cases) and ipads and that too. They also have cool accessories for phones, like little charms and that.

Tropical Trousers

I know it's waaaay too early for an outfit like this but I literally had to put these trousers on the second I got them. I also have the matching crop top but even I had to concede it was too cold to wear it. I did give it a good try wearing it around work but in the end, it was just too cold. Trousers (and matching top) are from select. I ended up wearing it with a plain black tee and this kimono (also from select) which although is still too summery for the weather - at least I'm not freezing.

Sock Obsessed

About 2 summers ago, I became completely obsessed with socks from Korea. For some reason the obsession has come back - and man can you get some cools socks now. I've seen similar ones to the cat socks I was obsessed with in Topshop now so I guess that makes me a sock trend predicting expert now. You can actually buy similar to some of these in Topshop, but its definitely cheaper to order from the far east on ebay.

Silver bag

So I love Anya Hindmarch super cool, super 90s bag stickers, but I don't have a bag that cost more than £50 (thanks tkmaxx) so I don't really see the point in putting a super expensive sticker on one of my cheapo bags. The solution? Get a bag from Primark and stick a load of stickers from Paperchase on. They surprisingly don't come off easily (and the ones that do? Put new ones on!) I can't take credit for this idea - I saw it on Susie Bubble. Which I've used as justification; it's not the sort of thing a seven year old would do - it's fashion sweetie. Eh I don't care - I love my sticker bag.

Dungarees and Polo Neck

A slightly more wintery way of wearing my dungarees (from select) before the sun comes out properly. I feel like the polo neck (from boohoo) makes this look like a toddler woman mash up.

The perils of having pink hair

Or any other colour that isn't blonde or brown or redish.
It would probably be quicker for me to list the colours I haven't dyed my hair; grey -everytime I want to I get talked out of it, yellow - did it once and dyed it out the next morning, I just looked like I had an awful bleach job and those plumy-purpley-red colours you get - just never had the urge to have hair this colour. But there's a bunch of stuff you have to deal with if you have cool coloured hair. It's become a lot more common to have coloured hair - back in the day I used to go to a goth shop to buy my dye, now they sell it in boots. And living in London, rather than a small town means people have seen it all before. It doesn't mean that this doesn't still happen. 

People assume you're the sort of person who likes to chat on the bus/tube. And I'm really not. But for some people my hair seems to be an invitation to talk to me. I never get half as much of it when my hair is blonde or brown. 
All your outfits need twice as much planning. This applies even more if you change colour frequently like I do. Right now I can't really wear red or any autumnal colours like burgandy or mustard. Which is annoying because I have a really cool new red tee shirt I want to wear but it doesn't go with my hair.

Your hair turns to crap - unless naturally you have very blonde hair, to get your hair to go colours, you're gonna need to bleach it. So many people make a face when I tell them I bleach my hair. Well duh- did you think it just went light on it's own but somehow left dark roots??

Do you have coloured hair? Do you have any of these problems?
