5 4 3 2 1

It's finally starting to feel like Spring despite the dreary weather today. Exams are therefore looming but I'm looking forward to the summer nevertheless for taking pictures and sun and freedom and inevitable laziness. Half term was recently and each time we have holiday I then have to wear my own clothes and totally freak out that I don't own any and go on an internet spending rampage. Therefore I have a lot of new clothes that I can't wear except for at weekends but I want to wear them all at once so again, I wish we didn't wear uniform at school sometimes.

Floral top from Etsy, Vintage floral blouse, DIY tie dye top, J Lynch belt (!!!), Vintage sheer skirt, 70s bag from a car boot sale, dead rose from Valentines day.

Dazed and Confused.

Shoes were £1 from a car boot sale and they are 3 sizes too big.

Some of my recent Instagram pictures. 50s sheer communion dress, floral vintage shirt, handpainted pendant from the SA,  Mary Quant moon and star stockings, vintage boots from Camden Market which I painted.

I got my sister to take the pictures below of me last Sunday. I bought the blue crimplene dress ages ago last year from Clobber, a vintage shop, for £16 and meant to take it up because it was really long and I finally did last weekend. The floral shirt that has featured way too much in this post already is from a vintage shop. The silver lurex sandles, I've been yearning over for months (since last june) were finally relisted on eBay for £7 so I am beyond enamored with them. Coat is the SA and I got the bike from a car boot sale but I need to get it repaired because the brakes don't work and it has a flat tyre. I rode it to school twice last year before it started to fall apart and felt like the queen of cool.

"What an interesting car boot" I really don't know why I look so interested.

Hopefully I will finish my zine soon. It is COMING. It's going to be in black and white this time I think so I can photocopy it all at school but it will be on Etsy for a miniscule amount.
