LOOK who's talking now ♥

Cardigan, Top, Vest Top & Leggings - H&M | Shoes - Primark | Ring - Galibardy | Headscarf - Vintage | Necklace - Vintage Festival

Firstly my ♥heart♥ goes out to my fellow Londoners and everyone across the UK experiencing the chaos of the mindless riots!!  It's been absolutely ridiculous here, I'm so outraged by this mindless criminality!

Right... now on with my post, as you can see, I am still happily obsessed with headscarves.  I've also been experimenting with different ways to tie them, and I quite like this new look, it's quite 'housewife-esque' don't you think?


I don't really like the clips with the headscarf and have no idea how people keep their headscarf on their heads without them moving? as mine just slip right off otherwise - any tips anyone?

Now down to business, I am going to enter the LOOK blogger Competition!!! Do Do Doooo!  I know I'm rather slow off the mark, but everyone knows the story about the tortoise and the hare :)  And I genuinely love LOOK magazine and when reaching for a Fashion mag, they will always be my first choice due to their no nonsense approach to high-street fashion!

I know this is only a small blog with a small following but I hope to inspire people as they have inspired me.  I'm Michelle, the writer and founder of Pretty Things, a Life and Personal style blog enthused by affordable high-street pieces.  I take inspiration from anything from a stranger passing me in the street to other bloggers to the colour of the sky in the evening - it may not be high-fashion, but it is fashion.  I want to share with the world that you don't have to follow any fashion rule, that you dress for yourself and what make YOU feel good and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.  This blog is not just about fashion, it's also scattered with the likes of crafty DIY's and daily adventures thrown in for good measure.

So here I am, asking - or rather pleading - yes, yes I have no shame - for the chance to be one of the lucky bloggers to be at the front row of the the LOOK Show AW11 - all my fingers and toes are crossed!

Super cute outfit! I always love the way you style things. Sending love and prayers to you and the city regarding all the horrible stuff that's going on there. It's very much like when we experienced the LA riots with the whole Rodney King deal.

Best to you!
