It's been nearly a week since Christmas, and it feels a bit late to now be doing a Christmas post. But i've enjoyed reading everyone's so much that I wanted to do my own!
Being in retail I was back to work on the 27th and haven't had time to sit down and do this post till now :)

One of the lads

I fell for this 'parental advisory' wife beater in the mens section of h&m last month. And I couldn't wait to get it home, pose around and dream of summer - which this will be a staple.
Anyways, buying the top it occurred to me that I have A LOT of mens clothes, and I thought I'll show you into my wardrobe of androgynous pieces. I have worn 'boys' clothes for as long as I can remember, something of the 'lad' within me and trying to be one of the boys is probably to blame, but I always just loved the way that mens clothes are cut, they look great on a women's body.

New Boots!! ps I need your help!

I have this weird fascination/love for artist, musician  activist, singer, songwriter M.I.A. Its weird because I get completely obsessed with her for 2 weeks, cant stop youtubing her music and video's dancing around my bedroom to galang and bad girls and drool over google images for days over her style. And its strange because it happens every 4/5 months, I get obsessed then move on to something else, and something reminds me of her and I am back there again!

I am completely obsessed with gold right now, I'm a magpie to everything 'gold' in shops right now and im searching for the perfect gold trousers. (Saw some in new look months ago wish i brought them!) My search took me to h&m today and I brought a pair for £24.99 but Im gunna take them back because they didnt fit right - does anyone else find this with H&M's trousers/jeans?

I can see right through your blind eyes

So my evening began last night with an atempt to do a 'h&M haul' post, Each month there is a different shop that takes all of my wages. This month was H&M. So i gathered all my new purchases nicely on the floor. Getting arty and creative with my display, but my kitten Dorothy, just saw it all as new playground. She trashed my hard work and continued to play catch with my new necklace and ring! She was sooo cute I had to take some photo's (WARNING **** multiple cat photos below)

DIY!: Turn your tights into a top!

I had to take a pose of my cute new top with my cute new kitten! I watched today a video on youtube posted by ItsmyRayeRaye and have been completely obsessed since! Ive spent my eveing cuttin up various tights and im completely hooked. Here's the video posted on youtube by ItsMyRayeRaye.

So I practiced with a couple of plain black tights as seen in the video, but I couldnt wait to start cutting up my patterned and knitted tights to get the same effect! I brought some many patterned tights over the years that just haven't been worn; so im giving them a new sense of well being and loving with this DIY technique.

I haven't created my own 'how to' for this because its sooo simple if you just watch this video, and I dont want to take credit for someone elses ideas, but have a look at my new tops!


It's the week of halloween! which only means one thing! - Party and get dressed up! This year me and my best girl hayley went to a halloween party as the pink ladies! I was sandy and she was frenchie! It was so much fun. I really think the getting ready and dressed up is part of the fun in evening, especially when it means zombie make up.

I am taking photo's daily of my outfits to post, but it an almost impossible task. It is impossible for me to get a head to toe shot with good lighting and me not slouching/bent over to fit in the frame. I was meeting up with my best friends saturday night and wanted to show you guys what I was wearing. And this is the best shot I got! haha on the floor like a tramp - suits me perfect!

A/W Inspiration

It's time for layering up, drinking coco and wearing a darker shade of lipstick. It's my favourite time of year and im starting to get inspired  I've chosen these images and inspiration for the next few months, a lot are film stills but to me they are the best place for style-spiration.

OOTD- Ambiton

Bargin Make up/ Jewellery Haul

I'd run out of liquid eyeliner, so one lunch time I sneaked in to Superdrug to buy some more. As always though I got discrated by all the pretty colours and new products in the make-up isle. I had been using Rimmel's liguid eyeliner, but I always like to test new products and discover something new. 
Something I also wanted to get was bronzer. It is something I have never had in my make up box before (yep shock horror!) but my friends all use it and it's always in  the magazines. Plus my boyfriend always moans at me that my foundation makes me look pale, So i'd thought I'll give it a try.

There's a river in my island

Well this morning was fun getting ready. I got dressed fine no issues, took a couple of pictures for my blog and was ready to go about my day. I began making my lunch, when I got into a heated fight with the feta cheese and chucked the 'brine' liquid that preserves the cheese all done myself. With minutes to go before i had to leave for work i wasn't best pleased and had to quickly change and chuck my clothes in the wash. (I was looking forward to wearing my Sid and Nancy t-shirt today)

this isn't abnormal infact daily i am causing issues with my clumsy butterfingered hands and forcing myself to get changed again. I've decided because it is a daily occurance and this blog is all about my life and fashion i should combine the 2. So from now on I will be documenting all my clumsiness for your amusement! hahah!!

looking forward to it?! Me too! will be a laugh for sure! Anyways as I said I did have to get changed so this now what I am wearing:

waist shot - 
including red lipstick- 
 silver nails and a large latte to go!

Because winter is mysterious

I always find it a little difficult to dress in the summer months, I have lots of summer clothes, but unless it's 30 degrees they are no good. I still need to layer things up. So im giving up and dressing for summer now, and heading straight for winter. Winter clothes is all about texture, layering, fabrics, colours and luxury, comfort - everything I love. this is an outfit I wore last week - tartan trousers, roll neck jumper, green over sized coat, thick socks and my dm boots. A perfect winter outfit.

american appeal all in one £26, asos embleished tights £42, heart necklace £14, river island glitter jacket £60 slouch top £22, boy london top £55, new look hobo bag £19.99, wedge trainers £30, asos green flatform £35.

Well what a wishlist list! There are a few things I am need of, I need a new handbag (only have 2 one huge, one tiny - i need an inbetween one!) also i really want some slouchy tops/ jumpers that are easy to wear and will go with anything, for those days when I can't be bothered.

Searching ASOS i came accross these other goodies, the River Island gold glitter jacket is just out of this world, I can see myself wearing this to death. everyone needs a boy london top in their wardrobe and I really like this all in one american appeal jumpsuit, I would buy a bigger size and wear it baggy, roll up the trousers. These tights are just to die for!! though I go through tights like there is no tomorrow, so i don't think £42 would be worth my money but i want them so bad!!

i've been searching for a pair of the wedge trainers everywhere, yes they are everywhere but i haven't found  a pair i like. Until that was I found these today on! and just £30!!! but they only have size 3 left in stock!! who's a size 3?!! I'll be checking back  to see if they have stocked up. And lastly i just love these flatform shoes from asos, think they would go with everything.

new website - LOOKSOUP.COM

At the beginning of the week I was approached by Eva from LOOKSOUP.COM inviting me to take a look at a new website for fashion lovers and influences. Like Pinterest it's all about building your own collections of all your favourite things. Currently I have 7 collections - my blog antionettevintage (which is just a collection of photos form my blog); inspiration (self explained), hair i'm killing for (pretty obvious again!) favoutite looks, because it's cool (just photo's a like), wishlist and work (photo's from work as assistant buyer/boutique manager).

this is what 'my blog' collection looks like so far.

But like facebook, twitter you get to like other people's post and collections, comment on them, add them to your own collections, and you can follow people!

You can also add any images from the web to your collections. When you sign up there is an 'add on' to download that adds a 'COLLECT' button to your internet broswer toolbar, so whenever you see something on the world wide web you want to add to your collections, to just click 'COLLECT'
here's an example of me collecting a picture of GAGA for my inspiration collection -

So i've seen a picture of gaga that i want to add, I click on the image to get a closer look, and then hit 'collect' thats on my toolbar.
the screen then changes and you click 'collect' again that appears across the image, just to be sure your collecting the right image, or if you clicked on it by mistake.
then click it again, a pop up box appears so you can add any text, and choose which collection you want to add it too.

And ta daaa! just like that it's there for all to see!

Whenever you add something from the web, it appears on the home page for all to see. Others can then 'like'  it, comment on it, and if they want collect it for one of their collections. you can also share anything to facebook and twitter.

You can also upload 'looks' to the site, photo's of yourself much like LookBook. I'haven't done this yet, but this a screen shot of what it looks like when you hit the 'LOOKS' tab on the website.

Overall though, it's a really fun site that is slowly coming addictive. Like i said before, it combines all the things you love from other sites and puts them in one place!

So the site is and my page is antoinettevintage so go and check out and follow me if you like it!
