Candy Canes....


Jacket, Cardigan, Necklace & Boots - Primark, Dress, Scarf & Rings - H&M

This is not the first time I've worn this dress, but for some reason everyone was commenting how great it was.  To be honest I think it was the boots and studded denim jacket, they really put a twist on this rather feminine dress.  What do you think?

It has also been quite windy the last couple of days here in London, so I thought I'd put up this rather fetching snap to demonstrate :)


The obsession hasn't stopped with the animal jewelery just yet either :)

I spent Sunday with my friend Abi where we had a late lunch at a cute little Mediterranean cafe on Church Street in Stoke Newington



 As soon as we walked in it immediately took me to a far away sunny place, the smell, the d├ęcor, the random Eggs Benedict served with Melon... but nonetheless yummy, and very cute and characteristic Cafe.


We then spent hours browsing the various boutiques filled with vintage clothing and cutesy bunting and cupcake holders.  If you're in the area, I do suggest you take a wander, though the shops are a wee bit overpriced, but none the less a great place for the vintage hunter.

We happened across this fantastic haberdashery just off Church Street, filled with all sorts of arts and crafts goodies and piles of material and streams of wool.  I could of bought a million things, but I limited myself to one item - a large letter 'M' which I plan to decorate and display in my room - I shall share that with you guys soon.

I also popped into Debenhams yesterday - to be honest I was shopping for a swimming costume for my holiday, but didn't see any that really caught my eye, so I wandered into the lingerie department.  They had 20% off and Debenhanms are my favorite choice for pretty bigger bust bra's.  I saw this candy cane stripe bra and matching knickers and had to have it, it's just too cute!


How has everyone else's week been so far?  Has anyone else had different reactions to an outfit when worn slightly differently than usual?
