Roman Holiday

As Pammy said, Susan and I have been in Rome and we are back now, which is lovely. Rome was nice, not what I had expected though, but it was nice...despite italian men shouting "Ciao big tita's" and "oooff Mamma Mia" at us. No joke. I suppose the sterotyping has to come from somewhere. It made Susan and I wonder what the English sterotype would be, and whether people who come and visit England actually see them. So if you have been to England and encountered any sterotypes I would love to know what they were! :D

Anyway! Outfits! We didn't do as many as hoped but here are a few. For once I didnt over pack and regretted not taking more clothes but it makes you be a little more crafty I guess.

(Cant believe I haven't bragged about the leggings below! American Apparel but cost me £7 instead of £30!!)

This outfit was inspired by Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday..hence the post title.
One thing I did not enjoy about Roma was running through the city (nearly getting killed by the crazy drivers!) as our teacher walked behind us shouting RUN!RUN!. It was just ridiculous as I did not sign up for a fitness regime!
Also Halloween has been and gone. Can you believe it is Novemeber already?Tres silly! Pamela did make it to halloween and we didnt really have costumes planned so we decided in an hour...record times I do believe. It was basically an excuse to wear what we would want to wear but cannot as college would mock us.

I was hoping to show some pictures but they didn't turn out!! I went as a "punk", Pamela was dressed as a "checker board" and Susan was dressed as a "ballerina on acid"...well thats what I would describe us as.

Happy Halloween Everybody.

It's a little early I know. But i'm a more than a little bored. Wendy-May and Susan are in Rome for a few days, and i feel lost without my partners in crime. But i'll get through it. They get back tomorrow.
I'm joking, we can all survive without each other......
They say they are bringing me a gift back, i told them not to bring the pope, but i wouldn't complain if they did. Although I did preferred the last one.
I'm very jealous that they're there right now, probably getting drunk, in Rome. Here I am in this frosty weather, freezing my toes off.
Anyway, just thought i'd post because we haven't for a while. Thanks for all the lovely comments as usual! The leathers are continuing being glorious! I'll probably be wearing them this coming weekend, lots of parties to go to! or just the one, we're not very cool.
Wendy-May and Susan are deserting me again for halloween as they're off to a party in York and going on a ghost walk at midnight. It sounds so much fun. But i cannot attend as i have to go to an open day in Wales the next day and have to set off at some ungodly hour in the morning.
Their idea for halloween costumes is the many stages of Madonna. We were all gonna dress up as different madonnas. I refused to be the 50 year old Madonna in a leotard. One of us was going to be 80's Desperately Seeking Susan Madonna. And that's as far as we got with ideas. Maybe one of us could be Cowgirl Madonna. I can't go now so i'll help those two's costumes be fabulous!

They could be the pointy bra madonna....

If anyone has any other ideas feel free to suggest them!

I have to say, though I love some of her songs, I'm on Guy Ritchie's side just because I love his films. They're all truely excellent. And i'm incredibly excited for his new Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey jr and Jude Law!

So what's everyone else dressing up as???

One Day We're Gonna Live in Paris. I Promise.

I am disgusted at myself. It's been officially almost 2 months since i last posted. I can't believe it I didn't even realise because it's not like i stopped reading blogs pretty much everyday, they are addictive. So apologies for my long absence.
Down to business. I LOVED the Sonia Rykiel show. It was amazing. The colours, the feathers, the designs by other designers, the top hat - what's not to like?

I must also add that I really enjoyed Louis Vuitton, i never thought such words would be said by me but it's true I thought it was very excellent!

Since being away i've acquired two things that have made me very very happy indeed. I have these obsessions with items, i usually really want something for ages until it gets to the point where i don't feel my life can go on with out my buying whatever said item is. And for ages now i've wanted leather trousers and thigh high boots. So you shall never guess what. I bought some. Yey!!! I got the leather babies almost a month ago from Bershka in London when myself and Susan were supposed to be doing art research stuff we accidently wondered onto oxford street and stumbled into quite a few shops when i found the trousers sent to me from above. They have lots of zips and everything!
Then the thigh highs came into my life via Ebay, it was a bittersweet moment when i bid. Handing over such a massive portion of my money isn't the greatest feeling but receiving such beauty is pure excellence i tell you!
So all in all i'm a very happy lady right now! There is the new addiction to capes that i've acquired, but i'm sure i'll shortly remedy that issue.....(bring on Ebay).

Hope everyone is keeping well and of course wearing fabulous clothes at the same time.

Oldy Lady

Yesturday was Susans 18th!! YAY! We went to blackpool pleasure beach and it was pretty damn cool! I feel a bit battered and bruised though, as at one point we felt our heads were going to fall off, but it was worth it!!The nicest looking rides are often the worst!And of course we celebrated in style on the train with a bottle of wine and cake....the only way to travel!
I know this is not fashion related at all but o well!
Hope all is well!
