I wore my mustard tights from Dorothy Perkins again
, this time I paired them with some Converse (bet you didn’t see that coming.
.) and my Gap skirt. You can also see my watermelon necklace
trying to get in on the photo action. Luckily it is not really in focus, it’s the tights we are looking at!
I have been making a big effort to not wear black tights and am glad to say it’s going very well. I will of course show you all that own do own other colours of tights than mustard, maybe I should do a full outfit shot. What do you think ? I want to continue with wearing black tights less throughout the window and stick to some classic autumn colours such a mustard (obviously), rusty orange, deep red and navy.
Excuse my friend getting in the way there..
I had my hair coloured at Veewon
in Beccles, the girl did a really good cut and I am happy with the colour too. I miss the bits of copper and blonde but as this fades it will start to shine through, so that’s something to look forward to. This is more work appropriate and yes, it’s just brown hair but in certain lights it shines red and copper which makes it a little more exciting.
I loved having bright red hair
and really embraced it whilst I was in Cannes
, but as soon as we were back it had faded so much, red colour seems to fade as soon as your start washing it. I think I ruined plenty of hotel towels with my red hair and to add to it my friend Luca
died his pink
so I am sorry to say those poor hotel towels were in a bit of a state. If you are thinking of colouring your hair red and are happy to enjoy the bright colour for the few weeks it lasts then that’s fine but if you want something which will last longer then I don’t recommend it. Mine faded to a lovely copper and blonde shade which I really enjoyed having, then the roots started showing and I finally had to have a change.
I think I will go back to having red hair one day, my hair needs a rest for now though.
For those of you like me who have too much stationery and try to display it nicely but it just becomes messy…well, I have an idea (a simple one)
I have decided to keep all my stationary in shoe boxes, but you could use plastic boxes form somewhere like Ryman
. At the moment I have just put everything into a few boxes but as soon as I have some spare time I will organise them a bit better.
The coat is 70% wool which makes it’s selling price of £125 a little more understandable, this is sure to keep you warm and cosy !
To me this coat represents a new 2011 version of the coat Zooey Deschanel wore in Yes Man
. UO did a coat about two years ago which was very similar to the vintage coat (yes many people google away trying to find out where that coat was from) which Zooey wore in the film Yes Man. Still to this day people make their way to my blog post about similar
coats to the one in Yes Man.
I have shared each autumn since the film, a coat
which I thought
would give you the look of Zooey Deschanel in Yes Man. This year I am with UO and their Pins and Needles
navy coat, I think it is a new look and shape but still keeps the delightful coloured edging. As classic as navy and red will always be it is ok to mix it up from time to time and this is exactly what UO has done. I think the green edging has worked really well against the navy.
If you want to get the Zooey Yes Man look with a 2011 AW twist then I suggest you go for the UO Pins and Needles
coat. I am very tempted..!
