Unlikely Icons;

[today I wanted to do a post a little bit different, I thought using people/animals/characters would be a good way to inspire outfits, so that's exactly what I have done]

OOTD; Winter Jumpers.

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days but the good old winter flu has caught up on me.. 
Jumpers are like essentials for the wintery months.. England is like living in the north pole except rainy instead of snow/ I think layers are the best for this kind of year.
I wore this jumper with just a midi skirt and creepers but in winter I would need tights or atleast socks.
Both my jumper and skirt were from charity shops& creepers from eBay.. 
I'm going to be posting some Halloween themed post over the next few days, so keep a eye out for that.. 
Hope you are all well.

Everybody's dressing up, I'm dressing down/

I think dressing down 'party dresses' is a good winter style, I always feel like I don't get much wear out of them during the colder months so I thought I'd show how you could wear dressy dresses for day wear.
dress; #
coat; # 
bowler hat; #
necklace; #
satchel; #
boots; #
Layers; by adding layers to this outfit it will take the detail from the dress and to looking at what you are actually wearing with it, tartan is also a Autumn trend therefore adding this coat will suit it best to this season. I would also add simple black tights to keep you warm. 
dress; #
faux fur coat; #
cardigan; #
tube scarf; #
belt; #
shoes; #
Maxi dresses/skirt are always great for winter as they are easy to just pop on with a basic tee/jumper. To really dress down this look I added a snood style scarf this takes away the neckline along with a casual grey cardigan which adds a autumn colour theme. I thought I'd add detail to this look with the little fox faces loafers..I love them but they are quite expensive however you could probably do a DIY to a basic black shoe to get a similar look.

beanie hat; #
scarf; #
bag; #
boots; #
Beanies are pretty 'big' this season (I've just ordered this myself) and I think teaming a very detailed dress with a backpack and beanie instantly makes it look casual. I love these boots to, plus they are pretty cheap.
I would wear black tights with this look too.

Ahcahcum Muchacha Cat Bags/

I was looking on Tumblr the other night when I spotted a picture of these amazing cat bags, I've tried finding a place to buy them but I just can't find them anywhere! I know they are a Japanese brand called Ahcahcum Muchacha. I found some websites but they were sold out, they have a facebook page to but obviously it isn't in English. I think the cute little faces and not been able to have one for myself makes me want one even more. If anybody knows any more about them please let me know. 
Hope you like them too.

OOTD; Best Bitches

Just a simple outfit today, maybe be good for a meal out or a shopping day? However add heels and I think you would be set for a night out with some jewellery. I feel like I just don't wear these disco pants enough, maybe its because the colour is so 'out there' (where I live anyway). I was thinking of getting the charcoal or black ones just as they are a bit more 'wearable' ORRR the easy jeans, I just can't help but think of pound signs when I think about American Apparel although I do think some things are worth it. Maybe the Christmas fairy will bring me some.. 
I've also been looking for a shirt like this for a while, it reminds me of Beetlejuice&I love it. Surprise surprise its from a charity shop(£3). 
Shoes; Ebay; £25.00
I wanted to share this necklace with you all too.. I love it.
