So blogging has been about the last thing on my mind recently, am on the 'should be done by the end of today' bit of my dissertation and am flying out to nepal a week today so haven't really had time to think about anything else. Anyways, that's no excuse!

lately i've been massively craving a new staple pencil skirt, i used to have two colours of this Topshop origami skirt in black and bluey purple which i used to wear pretty much every day, so much that i ripped the seams of both of them (shitty topshop materials plus the wrong stitch down the sides plus not having teeny thighs!) and after about 3 repair jobs they were confined to the bin of shame.

so i saw this beautiful skirt on Net a Porter from Craven, which just about made my day, it's totally versatile and textured and interesting enough that i could wear it to interviews and not feel like a nob, then switch the top and wear it out. anyhow i'm in love.

Except it's like £250. so, given my soon to be new found freedom, i'm head down to whatever fabric mecca i can find and dig out mum's sewing machine and try and make my own, will obvs show you the results.

Topshop wants.

Just watched the Mad Men christmas episode. It neeeds to be winter again. winter fashion is so much more wearable for pale girls!

If i had a spare £150, this jacket would be mine tomorrow. sadly...
