But but's so pretty!!!

This is just the loveliest thing I've seen in a very long time. And I cannot have it as I am a good foot too short to carry it off!

ASOS berry leather midi skirt €114.71
Leather. Berry shade. Seventies. Midi. Perfection!!

I love coloured leather. Personally I feel with black leather there is always the danger of looking a little Bon Jovi (especially if it is not a very matt black), but adding colour brings it back to just being an amazing natural durable material with a little edge.

Want of the Day

I loooooooooooooooooove this dress! I think this taupey-minkey-new plaster colour is my all time favourite, there's something very gentle and classy about it.

Twist & Tango dress €134.61 on ASOS

Have not been blogging at all lately, I am busy having a big clear-out of my wardrobe on Ebay, mostly so I can afford to re-stock it with lovely things! One of which is this lovely top I bought yesterday in Only in Liffey Valley shopping sentre.  Only is a brand I keep forgetting about, mostly because somedays I see absolutely nothing I'd like when I go in, other days I end up taking 7 things into the changing room and wishing I could afford them all. This is lovely though, unusual to find this lovely vivid blue, and it's subtly rock-chick with tiny stars and skulls.
(Can't find pic of long sleeve in blue for some reason so here are both versions....)

Patricia long sleeve €29

Patricia top €19
They do lovely draping, slouchy but flattering cotton and jersey casuals really well and at very reasonable prices, but also have the odd quirky piece hidden in amongst the staples.

Pull Wonder sheep jumper €39

Cape €79

Pantalon carrot trouser in tweed €45. Doesn't the model look great?

Full collection can be found here, can't find their own website!?
I will be back there sharpish on pay day!............
