I Need A Dollar

By Gem - 22:12:00

Busy, busy, busy! I've got a hen night, wedding and course work dealine all coming up in the next few weeks so I'm enjoying a rare night reading blogs on my sofa with a cup of tea and my dog.
I went to work in the business library today, I don't normally work there so I thought I would make the effort and look smart so I went for an all black ensemble with a few details to jazz it up. My brother (my very own Nigel Barker) has gone on holiday to Greece so I've got some dodgy photos today. I really need to invest in a tripod, isn't my brother just plain rude?! how dare he go away without me and leave me without an official photographer ;)

Dress - H&M
Shoes - Peacocks
Belt -  Dorothy Perkins
Brooch - Accesorize
Cardigan - Evans

I really like this dress it was only about £20 but looks really nice in the flesh. I've got a selection of jazzy coloured tights and belts to wear with this dress to make it a little less formal. I'm also rather keen not to spend to much money on clothes at the moment and I think investing in some plain dresses is a good idea.

Have you all been out spending your student loan on new A/W clothes? I went into Cardiff today and it was packed with students splurging on new clothes. I popped into Urban Outfitters to see the Vivienne Westwood handbags, I had to tear myself away.

Hope you all have something lovely planned for this weekend!

P.S. keep the 12th of October free (all will be revealed shortly)

  3. You look so smart! I wish I had a student loan to spend this year, searching for a job after graduating is not fun!

  4. I love the leopard print belt, great way to change the look of the dress! I wish I had a student loan again ( though also glad I don't at the same time as would be even more to pay back!) x

  5. You look gorgeous! I find a tiny touch of leopard print just makes anything that bit edgier :D

    I know the horror of being without a photographer, my own nigel ahem I mean boyfriend is so much more fun than a tripod and timed camera haha ;)

  6. I remember student loan day well, it usually involved a fruitfull trip to the trafford center! Oh to have those days back....
    Plain dresses sounds like a good idea, especially as you can put different blazers/cardigans/jewellery etc with them, Ima have to copy you on this!
