Yoo yo yo,

I haven't blogged since boom town last week and words can't even describe how crazy and amazing it was. It was definitely the best 4 days i've ever had and I want to go every year of my life. It's not like any festival i've ever been to before, and the thought of returning to V after this literally makes me want to vom. Everyone was dressed up in fun fancy dress, everything was far from ordinary and I felt like I was in my spiritual home! I have a few photos but I dunno if you're interested in seeing them?

I went out for a quick lunch by the canal today with Dan, and dragged him in to take a few snaps (obviously). The overlay on my skirt is actually an Indian bolero I picked up from the car boot but it fitted perfectly round my waist and I think looks really cute over the top of skirts and dresses. What do you think? 

 Skirt - Topshop £32 // Bolero used as overskirt - Car boot sale £4 // Crop top - Urban Outfitters £16 // Chain - River Island £12 // Bindi - Pack of about 1000 - eBay £2 // Shoes - Dr Martens £30ish // Socks - Topshop £3 // Rucksack - Car boot £50p

Dan taking the mickey out of my poses pa ha ha! (sorry had to include this!!)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a fringed kimono here. Just one day left!

  9. would never think to use a bolero over a skirt like this, looks so cute!


  10. A lovely example of cultural appropriation. Way to take a respected and meaningful symbolism of the Hindu culture and turn it into a fashion accessory. I mean, I am a Caucasian Hindu, I have been my whole life and I as well have encountered comments such as these from people who didn't realize that I was raised Hindu. I have just been following your blog for a long time, and I have not seen you mention that you are Hindu. It's disrespectful.


I love hearing from you! x
