These girls fall like dominos...

I really wanted a pair of peg leg trousers and spent an age searching for some.  My problem is I have really wide hips but quite thin legs and every pair that I tried on made me look like I was wearing clown pants! I finally found some in Topshop, I think these ones actually suit me as they are high waisted and draw attention away from my hips!

I wore them with my Miu Miu shoes which I brought on a whim from Net-a-porter a couple of years ago.  I adore them but I have to admit they are crippling.  I have no idea how such a beautiful pair of shoes can cause such utter pain when I have shoes which are far higher and are actually comfortable.  Beauty over pain I suppose!  I will have to  do a close up of the heel on these shoes at some point as they are amazing.

I have gotten over the flu and now really need to concentrate on revision for my finals.  As usual I am lacking in motivation and will do anything to avoid it.  This basically means I have been blog stalking and watching episodes of TOWIE over and over again.

Just a short post, as I suppose I had actually better do some work today!

Turn up the lights in here baby...

Shoes: Jessica Simpson

I have wanted a pleated maxi skirt for ages and when I saw this one on ASOS I knew I had to have it, however, I wasn't quite prepared for just how orange it would be and I am not sure whether I should keep it or not?  I know that its ridiculously popular - it sold out in about 30 seconds flat and this colour isn't even listed on the website anymore (but if you like the style you can still get it in black here) - but I'm not sure if its very 'me'.  Mind you, since colour blocking is the new trend (how far I can get involved in this since my wardrobe is completely black I don't know...) maybe I should hang on to it!  I decided to parade about in with my Jessica Simpson Dany platforms which are not actually that uncomfortable considering I am practically walking around with tower blocks on my feet.

In other news I am so dreadfully ill.  I still have an absolute mountain of work to do but I can't even seem to look at a page for more than a minute without the spaces between the words becoming swirly patterns.  Urgh I hate it! I am never ill! I'm not letting it stop me blogging, though I am not loving the pictures that are resulting from my germ filled cloud, especially that last one - I look horrific, but I thought that its always helpful to see what something looks like front on.

Should I keep the orange skirt? Also has anyone by any chance seen a nude pleated maxi skirt? I quite fancy purchasing one!

Someone like you...

Shorts: Topshop

Socks: New Look
Shoes: Jessica Simpson Dany platforms

I am finally back! Handed in my dissertation on Friday, what an absolute stress that was.  Had such a great weekend of freedom but perhaps overdid it a bit as I now have the flu, winner.  

Whilst I was on a blogging hiatus I got my Jessica Simpson Dany platforms through.  I think these are a bit like marmite, either you love them or you hate them.  I love them but not sure if I can quite pull them off.  I'm going to keep them though as I ordered them from the US and think that it would probably cost about £20 to ship them back, considering I paid about that much to ship them over here then that would literally be £40 down the drain with nothing to show for it.  If you're like me and like these type of shoes but don't want to go through the palava of getting them from the US, ASOS have got some that are identical new in this season.  They haven't dropped yet and I am not sure if you can get them in black (as only tan is shown) but I am pretty sure that they will fly out.  If you want to check them out they are on page 28 of the ASOS magazine (here). What do you think of the high wooden platforms? Your cup of tea?

On a side note, genuinely can't get enough of The Only Way is Essex.  I live in London now but I am originally from Essex and my parents and boyfriend don't live very far from where its filmed., I used to even  go to the Sugar Hut before it burnt down a few years ago.  You would think that I would probably not be too bothered about it considering this, but its like compulsive viewing.  If there was some sort of live feed I would probably watch it all day!  Arg makes me laugh so much!
