Creepy and Clueless

Hey, hey, lookie look! Here I am, proving that my winter-to-spring transition wardrobe contains more than an oversized denim and scagged tights.

Mel, Holly and I watched Clueless at the weekend. Cher's scientifically co-ordinated, computer-approved uber-matching skirt suit fabulousness has appealed to me since I first watched the film back when I was ten years old.

My 24 year old self can't quite get to grips with the pristine Valley-girl shebang so I've opted for a mismatched double tartan moment and a mohair jumper in one of my rare nods to adulthood. Stompy boots, beat-up fake leather jacket and religious iconography keeps my oft-forgotten inner mosher satiated, and ensures that the loud and chatty types steer clear of me in the library.


 
Leather jacket - secondhand from Jenny, tartan blazer - Peacocks, tartan skirt - flea market in Berlin, mohair jumper - H&M, specs - Primark, boots  -Eccentrix.

Usual chirpy demeanour and less self-consciously fashion-speak service will resume shortly. University is eating my soul, and verbally deconstructing my "look" (LOL) on this here blog is a kind of escapism that also kids me into feeling vaguely productive. Note to self: stop overanalysing your wardrobe. Save that for the disseration. Over and out!

    1. Ahh, cheers! And I'd say charity/thrift shops are the best place to go, even if it's not totally coordinated there's usually a whole bunch of near-enough matches! x

    1. Yaaaaay! There's ALWAYS cheap tartan in chazza shops, we'll have to go a-searchin' next time I visit. Thanks so much for picking up the newspaper m'dear, it's massively appreciated! I can't believe it's only a week til I'm going there, I'm so scared I'm going to screw it up!
      Yeah, I'd happily ditch the uni work if I wasn't so hell-bent on getting a good degree out of it :p
      Much love xxx

    1. Aww thanks amigo :) if I were nerdier I would spend the time photographing all my clothes and force a tech whiz to design a similar program for me. Sadly I have neither the funds or the brute force to bully said tech whiz into helping me out :(
      Ouch! -18?! That's insane, good luck with yr return!
