Return of the Pam

It's been a while. Not sure if anyone's noticed but it's been almost 3 weeks!!! C'est ridiculous, non? I couldn't tell you what i've been doing but i just have had no time. You might think i had been studying, but you would be wrong. None of that has occured either, which is not good but i've got the whole weekend.....

I will stop gabbleing sometime.
Whilst being away from the 'Realm' i have managed to purchase quite a few items actually.
I said ages ago that i wanted a leather skirt, now i have one, but not too sure about it because it's sooo tight it shows every roll. I also said to Wendy that i would from stop buying clothes and start buying shoes, as i severely lack them, but that day i conmenced to buy 2 dresses. Thennnn today i finally stuck to this vow and bought some boots and some low-heels. I am very happy with all purchases and so decided to photograph them all for you to see.....

The beaded top is my sisters but a condition of her taking the photos was for that to appear in the photos. The boots are Oxfam, i've been looknig for some boots for a while and was amazed to find my big foot size in a charity shop, it NEVER happens! Also got the topshop super pale denim skinnies in the sale, they'e not the most flattering jeans on the old thighs but i can deal with it for these jeans.

Lovely white heels from British Heart Foundation another pair of charity shop shoes that actually fit (if a little big even, dare i say it), today was the 'miracle finds day' it seems, my sister also found a maxi dress for a ridiculously low price, it was the only one left and in her size. Excellent. Ha! Just realised my mole. hehehe.
I'm going to a christening for my cousin's child in a couple of weeks so i needed a new outfit for the event of course. Myself and Wendy-May went prepared for a hunt but we stubbled upon this beauty in the first shop we went in. British Heart Foundation in Leeds has been a god send for this past week. I also found the dress below in the same shop, on the same rail. I added the sash/bow myself, it's off another dress actaully but i thought it added a bit more colour. It's sort of Miu Miu-y in style though it doesn't stick out quite so much, the skirt part, it's getting there though!
Below are the boots in close-up. they're sort of cowboyish. (so when i got home i did the cotton eye joe dance with the family....t'was fun, a tad surreal, but fun!) Susan, i don't know if she does anymore, but she did want some cowboy boots so i feel a bit bad, but heck she's the same size and can wear them when she likes without paying a penny! It's a win-win for her...Not so much for me.

Now this is the leather skirty girty, look at the mammoth of the slit! Well you can't really see it, but it's ma-hoo-sive so i have to wear it to the side because otherwise i would indeed be revealing my self to the nation. Other than the tightness and the slit it is wonderful, the price was rather tasty also, only £8!! The stripey top i have live in for the past week andi never do that, i always wait at least two weeks before wearing the same item again, it's a weird problem i have, but I adore stripes and it's so big and comfy i simply couldn't help myself!

Yey! Grey's Anatomy, Heroes and Gossip Girl tonight. Very much looking forwards to them all.

And to all a goodnight!

My fave purchase is the leather skirt, and I do think that a slit at the back of a pencil has some certain allure. Now I wish that purchase was my own.

THOSE BOOTS ARE SO COOL

I think what makes them so appealing to me is because they are two-toned
