Argue with Your Sister, only God knows how you'll miss Her.

Sometimes it's nice to stay in bed listening to French music and eating caramel waffles all day, when you know you really should be doing work, or at least something constructive with your time. Similarly, sometimes you know your morals will never win out; do you miss important lectures or have a lovely, if not freezing, day with one of your best friends? Irresponsibility will always triumph. And so yesterday I got to see Tori and had a wonderful time in the city, being childish at the natural history museum and spending money I don't have. Sadly, she had to go, but all good things come to an end.
We also made a trip to Beyond Retro, where despite living in London I had never been. I decided on some knee high boots, as I have been looking for some for a long time, and they were in my price range. And they're awesome.

I have a Christmas ball in a week, and am trying to not spend money so I am going to wear a pre-existing element of my wardrobe. I'm torn between over the top sparkle, in the form of this Kate Moss dress that I've had for ages but cannot find the right occasion to wear...

Or a softer, comfier and WARMER look; I'm kind of leaning towards this 70s maxi-dress I bought in Brighton (again with Cicely and Tori!) this weekend. I love this look but it doesn't work that well on me, seeing as I'm not seven foot tall and slim.

I love this picture, I think she looks fabulous.

Have no idea what to go for!
But now, I'm going to meet my long-estranged sister!

Those are such lovely finds! I used to be totally addicted to Beyond Retro when living in London...

That last picture... tdf!
I didn't think brown and black could look so interesting and feminine, but it does!
