Mr Klein has made quite the come back in recent months what with stores like Urban Outfitters and Topshop selling his brand like it's their own. We sell Calvin Klein underwear sets by the plenty and I get it, it's cute and completely classic. I would love to spend £40 on some fabric to cover my modesty but I'm just not that kind of girl, I would accept it as a gift though.
Sweater - Calvin Klein @ Topshop, shirt - Asos, jeans - Primark, trainers - Topshop, sunglasses - Matalan.
Until I'm feeling naughty and want to spend my weekly food budget on panties, I'll take this sweater (which is retailing at £90 now when I got mine for £45 back when it wasn't as cool to own it) I scored at Christmas with a gift card instead. It's great to layer over other pieces, in this instance I've finally got round to showing off this star printed colourful number which forever reminds me of my gal Megan Ellaby as she rocked the hell out of it last season. I'm about 5 months late to the club but a patterned shirt will never go out of style to me.
As if the stars on my shirt weren't an overkill I had to add more with these super tacky trainers. They're my wannabe YSL sneakers that I've been dreaming of for so long it pains me. YSL, you will always hurt my feelings and one day my bank balance will split in two just like my broken heart. Anyone care to fix it? If so I'll take the real thing pronto!
Back at it again with the band tee (how many blog posts have you seen with that joke in it? Damn Daniel). This time it's all about this vintage Mötley Crüe shirt that was made to be worn with ripped skinny jeans and black boots. Sourced from a charity shop it has the perfect 'vintage' feel along with that weird second hand smell you get whenever you enter a thrift store which is kind of comforting but also a little gross. Even though I may smell like an old lady even after a go over in the washing machine I still love the shirt.
If you have yet to see Drive featuring my all time crush, Ryan Gosling, then you won't understand my constant referencing throughout this post so this is a warning and an apology. On with the referencing we go! In the film Gosling wears one killer driving jacket which is silver with an embroidered golden scorpio on the back. Obviously he looks magical while wearing it and I can't say I'm on quite the same level, although now I have this jacket in my life I do think it bumps up my cool a couple of notches. I've started to call it my Drive jacket and it makes me feel like I'm walking around in a bubble of happiness with a slight era of cockiness, standard.
This shirt strongly represents how I'm feeling because in exactly 49 days time it'll be my one year anniversary of living in Bristol, what a hectic and crazy year it has been. I wont scrimp on the details with you after all I put hard work and effort into this blog so why not put my heart and soul into it too? This past year has been full of stress, complications and a lot of tears but that's been completely out-weighed by the glorious feelings I have towards my life now.
