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.
