You don't like rock and roll and I don't like you

Happy Friday guys! Hope you've all been having a good week...I've got a day off today so thought before I run out to camden with some friends (I know right, I'm actually leaving the house omg!!?) I'd sort out a new post. I'm feeling pretty rubbish today actually, though I'm not sure whether I have a cold or my body has gone into shock after I drank a huge glass of pomegranate juice without realising how much sugar it had in it. oops.
I wore this outfit to go to Pisa in Italy, and ended up getting a bunch of tourists giving me confused looks the whole day, which although a little off-putting at first, I've started to take as a confirmation that I am doing what I intended to do and not dressing like everyone else. I need to stop bitch facing back though, I'm sure it makes me look very unapproachable.

 
I am so totally in love with these badges. I got them in Venice and wear them on literally every item of clothing I own. They also have made me want to buy more badges.



 
(Shirt: a vintage brand from topshop in oxford street, cardigan-thing: I Feel Used, asos marketplace, dungarees: episode, tights: h&m, socks: topshop, shoes: office, bag: mum's, glasses: camden) 
 
I'm also going to take this opportunity to recommend to you the wonders of Asos Marketplace. Basically, Asos (online shopping heaven) has a separate section where loads of independent boutiques can sell things securely, and there are a tonne of gorgeous vintage boutiques with prices ranging from way over budget to so cheap, you end up buying four of the same thing just because you feel like you've got a such a good deal. I end up browsing boutiques like Dusty & Dylan, I Feel Used, Grandma's Washing Line and Gone Retro, although there are loads more that I haven't checked out yet.
 
 
I ordered this gorgeous jacket from Gone Retro on sunday, and although it wasn't the cheapest (£45, a huge spend for me) I was so pleased with the service that it was totally worth it. There was a £5 postage cost, which isn't that bad, and it came on tuesday...which made me extremely happy. I think you pay the same postage even if you buy a few items, which is even cooler. I'm really happy with it as well, it's exactly the size and in the exact condition they described, and I am most definitely going to order like their whole shop. Well, once I get some money, that is. Do any of you know of any other good online stores? If you do I would love to hear about them, as I'm often way too lazy to leave my laptop.
 
Sorry for the incredibly short post today, I'll post some inspiration or journalling or something in the next few days or so ^_^

  9. Aw, being slightly sick on your day off is always the worst. At least you still met up with friends, now that's a trooper ;) And I like your eclectic look here- people usually do stare at the creative and different. I'd definitely take that as a compliment- you stand out :)
