Speaking of classic films... it may shock you to know that I had never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's before this weekend, and honestly, I didn't understand what all the fuss was about. Now I get it. This movie makes me want to lounge around in my best dresses, to buy an apartment in New York with a fire escape and to build a classic wardrobe of trenches and LBDs. Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly = True Style Icon.
I only really wanted the gold Alice band but these came in a pack of 3.
Another brilliant find at the local car boot sale. I love looking through old magazines, even though the clothes have supposedly long gone out of fashion. However, when you review Vogues from a few years ago, you realise three things: the same trends recur constantly; good editorials will always look stylish and you can track a model's journey to the top through old copies of magazines (April 2009, Karlie Kloss was in two of the editorials. By June 2010, she is in at least 3 of the campaigns).
Not technically a purchase - I was sent it for review through Amazon Vine. So far, it's been very entertaining, and beautifully illustrated! Basically it's a memoir by this writer, Kelly Doust, about her life and how clothes have affected it and been affected by it. I will share my review with you once I finish. If anyone else has read it please share your thoughts!
Again, this flower badge wasn't technically a purchase. I did actually buy it from a friend's mum at a school spring fair, but later had my money given back because I'm a fiend of the family. How nice is that? It's made from the material of a dress my friend had which I also own one of, so it should match very nicely!
