Its almost Friday!!!!

Hey everyone... Don't you just love Thursdays??? I spent most of yesterday in the library so I decided to treat myself today (will get to that in a sec).

My legs look so short in this pic *surprised face*..... Decided to put my library day look up hehe.... I'm wearing shorts from Zara (one of my fave high street store) 

Decided to brighten the look with Rimmel Tangerine Queen nail polish and some colourful bracelets!!

and I'm wearing Chanel pumps, love the blue and white stripes (very nautical)!!!

Learnt a lot about Coco Chanel, she is one of my fashion Icons.

Today, I went to see Transformers 3 (definitely a MUST-SEE) and my crush for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley grew even more... beautiful face, awesome body, she is just awesome!!!
The 24 year old seduced the fashion industry and now hollywood. Victoria secret angel, Miss January on the Pirelli calender, Burberry Prorsum campaign star, all at the same time!!!
Rosie grew up on a farm near Tavistock in Devon and she is the oldest of three children. She has worked for everything she has and never got financial help from her parents, not because they didn't want to but because they couldn't. As a teenager she had bad skin and braces but was fascinated with the fashion world. At 15, her comprehensive school arranged seceterial work experience at a London modelling agency and she was scouted. 

Rosie is completely comfortable with her sexuality and a lot of people whistled when she came up on screen in the cinema today (I was one of them lol).

Going to type, study, type and study some more now, writing a dissertation is tiring but I know it will be worth it at the end. So on that note, have a great weekend dolls.

My Style.....???

Recently, someone asked me how I would define my style.... In short this question keeps popping up!! To be honest, I can't define it because I buy what I like and only if I feel comfortable in it. To me style is about comfort, and if an outfit or an accessory or even a pair of shoes are not comfortable, I will not buy it. I don't really follow trends, I just wear what I want when I want to!!!   
Was looking through some old pics and decided to share some of my looks (blast from the past as I said to my sister hehe) with you all....

Halloween 2009

Got the cardy at a Reiss pop up sale... It was almost a steal hehe at 15 pounds!!

So I guess you understand when I say I'm always comfortable lol and if I do buy an uncomfortable pair of shoes cos I love love love it so much and have to get it, I always have my fold it pumps in my bag.
Preppy, school girl, punk, goth, skater, emo, vintage, rock, indie, hippie, sporty e.t.c, I refuse to be defined by any of the above.... Can you define yours? :) !!!
