Bit of a blur....

These photos are a tad blury but I think I have disguised them a bit by giving them a vintage feel. This dress has such a seventies print I heart it, Think I got it from Primark.  Sorry I totally abuse my fringed bag but It just goes with so much and I love the smell of the leather.  Have you got an item that you wear all the time?? These boots were a total steal from New look on line they were £60 down to £25. They are real suede+leather and I know I will wear them to death in summer.  I bought my black fringe biker ones at the same time I was made up when I spotted them.  Pay day tomorrow :-), I have gave myself a challenge :-( I have to go one month without buying any clothes which includes shoes, bags, jewellery everything, Melissa!!! If I buy jewellery I always tell myself it doesn't count nice try!!! I spend the majority of my wages on clothes etc and I feel like I need to start enjoying what I have and not be so obsessed about what I haven't got yet. As I have plenty.

Boots-New look
Bag-Shanghai market
Gilet-Shanghai market
Hat-needs a break from ones head-New look


  1. Ohh I love it, very 70s-esque. I like the vignette effect on the pics, it kind of goes with the outfit. And that gilet is just amazing!!!! Nice bargain find on the shoes my dear. I am exactly the same, but I always tell myself that it's 'shoes' that don't count though, don't know how that one works...!

    Ps. I didn't realise you were a fellow Mel :) I was going to ask in your other post which one it's short for, Melanie or Melissa, but I see your a Melissa! Now that would have been spoooky!

  2. Love this look, the dress is gorgeous and really suits you x

  3. Looking good missy love all the pieces and the boots will defo be fab in the summer when it arrives. I love what you said about enjoying what you have and not obsessing about what you dont have. Good luck with your spending ban xoxo
