top of the shops

Please excuse my lack of photo post recently. I know im supposed to be doing a look book diary but without a camera (mine decided in its own head not took take photos anymore) but you will have to take my word for it that I am keeping it up. ‘Everyday I’m leopard print’ (sing like LAMFO) as soon as my camera is working again/been replaced/I have a new one. I will take photos of all the items I have been wearing.

Today I did something dangerous. It’s 2 weeks till Christmas, I have done no Christmas shopping and I don’t get paid till the 20th December. I took 5 minutes of my working day and had a nose at TOPSHOP ‘new in’ items – as per normal my heart has fallen deep in to my stomach as I have fallen for almost everything and am extremely tempted to ignore Christmas blame the recession not buy anyone presents and stock up my own wardrobe.

Here is what they have to offer:

Tan harness belt £40.00; Wallpaper Dress £65.00; Dip Dye Jumper £65.00; Orange Peter Pan Collar Dress £70.00; Pink Peter Pan Collar Dress £46.00 Day Bag £25.00 ‘city of Angels’ tee £22.00; Pink Silk Cami £26.00

I fell in love with this colour scheme last winter. Chole brang her sexy back at fashion week last autumn and these colours were everywhere. I even rearranged my wardrobe to have these colours next to each other and inspire me and it’s a colour scheme ive loved ever since.

Leopard print peace top £20.00; peace bra top £12.00; black platform shoes £65.00; Fur Coat £110.00; Teen Angst Crop top £22.00; Leopard Body £38.00; ‘Sin City’ Tee £22.00

Ok where to start. The teen angst top is a absolute fucking must! So is the peace bra top. I would layer it on top of another top/dress to show the world. I also really like the leopard print peace top; though I don’t like the length I would cut it to a crop top and maybe cut under the arms to, to show a bit of flesh, and a top underneath. £20 seems bit much to me to spend on a top im just going to cut up. So I might for this to go in the sale. Oh and if you don’t like the leopard print colours, it also comes in grey.

Tomorrow is our work Christmas due. Ive never quite understood the fascination with buying a new dress, the stress of getting ready. Everyone see you every day, they know what you look like. Wearing a £60 Lipsy dress is going to change their opinion. Thats why I am wearing a 3 year old black high waisted skirt and a size 24 (im size 12) leopard blouse that I brought in a charity shop for £4.50 2 weeks ago. Belle of the ball? Who gives a toss? Not as if it’s royal wedding or anything.
