BIRTHDAY BARGAINS.

As it was my birthday on Wednesday I decided to go shopping and treat myself beforehand....but on a budget of course. The idea was to spend £30 max and find a few summer tops and winter jumpers. 

I only buy items when I FEEL that the item represents ME. 

I'm not keen on copying cookie cutter trends from head to toe so with that in mind somehow I ended up with a neon pink jumper. Looking through my wardrobe it contains a lot of black items....very drab for the summer weather so I thought adding a hint of colour would help. 



Here's what I found:
















Black/White Jumper - Thrift Shop - £2.99
Peplum Top - Primark - £3
Red/Black Jumper - Thrift Shop - £2.99
Pink Jumper - Thrift Shop - £2.99
Bag - Primark - £5
Marl Vest Top - Thrift Shop - £2.99
Marl Dip Hem Jumper - £2.99

and...




....my awaited tie dye dip hem dress for a whopping £7 from Primark!!

 Okay. PERSONALLY I think that this was expensive for a dress BUT as it's my birthday week I thought what the heck. Any ideas on how to wear it when Autumn arrives? 

I was thinking a cropped jacket with ankle boots. What are YOUR thoughts?

HAIR-VAMP IDEAS.

Right now I'm sitting here as an 18 year old...19 in four days and I've suddenly noticed the drastic change in my appearance.

I look in my wardrobe and all I see is BLACK - WHITE - BURGUNDY - and  - GREY aka BASIC.

I can't complain as in comparison to my college wardrobe which consisted of odd floral tops, tube skirts and desert boots. I can't forget my green parka and granny cardigans as I literally lived in them. I liked experimenting with both my fashion and my hair which was a BIG mistake. I originally cut my hair into a chin length bob with my hair previously past my shoulders...

...I remember a slight phase of depression because I got carried away and told the hairdresser to cut my hair into short layers. BIG MISTAKE!

So why am I here researching nape undercuts....from past experiences I should stay away from the idea but I can't....I...JUST...CAN'T.




BUT then....I saw THIS:

Extreme Contrast Dye Jobs.

It's been a busy month. I was on a work experience placement with H&M with the Visual Merchandisers and learnt a fair amount in three weeks. 

It feels nice to be off from university but...I miss it now. I've got a few creative plans in mind but I need to put it to paper....as you can see in my scrap-poster I felt the sudden itch.
