8.8.10

Under the influence

charity shop shorts (£2), river island DIY-ed collared top (£3), vintage bag (from mother) &  belt, flea market earrings (£1), car boot sale cowboy boots (£1), primark sunglasses (£1)
Underage festival on Sunday - Courteeners, Darwin Deez, MIA, Lightspeed Champion, Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder, Chiddy Bang, Ellie Goulding, Stornaway... And so much more. Special thanks to Meg, who got the tickets :) 
It was my second time to the festival, and ended up being a very dusty experience.
And yes, I'm wearing a bumbag/ fannypack. It was my mums from the 80's, true vintage. This isn't my first time at a festival, and I've always hated carrying a bag when jumping around in crowds and being sucked into moshpits. This is the answer. When I'm not bouncing about, I wear as a shoulder bag. Hey, if Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs can do them, so can I.


1. Looking back, I'll chop slash fray these shorts shorter. I think I'm accidentally channelling "lesbian clown". 
2. Isn't it a weird moment when you realise you're wearing nothing over £3? Oh sorry, you wouldn't know, you're not a tramp :)
3. See y'all

  2. Hey sweetheart,

    Just came over and checked out your blog, totally loving it by the way!

    Just a heads up, those shimmery eye shadows I used are by Stila not MAC you can find them here for £3.45 a pop and the pans are much bigger than MAC's too!
