Suspended animation

Hi people.
I'm afraid I won't be posting anything on here for a while. My personal life has just gone totally into freefall and fashion is no longer a high priority. I will be back, because you guys make me feel connected to the outside world, and because writing here stops my brain from turning to gloop. See you all later,

Just me again

One day there will be things on here other than pictures of me, promise! At the moment I am madly busy and have just about got time to put clothes on, but not to make any helpful observations or to formulate coherent thoughts about anything.

Shrug Bay, top H&M, skirt Ebay, sandals New Look, necklace Topshop.

Yesterday, this dress had little puff sleeves. They were cute but so tight that I couldn't raise my arms above 45 degrees! No good for typing, driving, or much at all. So I unpicked the seams and took them off, thus creating a much more wearable dress, yay!

Dress, tights, and shoes New Look, long-sleeved top H&M, pendant Topshop, bracelets no idea.

The tights are 120 denier and have a fantastic slimming and firming effect on the legs. They're a lot like the tradional pink ballet tights I used to wear to classes years ago, except without the tendency to cut off the circulation when you sat down!

Shopping...the results

This is what I got in the Topshop sale:

Floral tea dress from one of those random Topshop concessions (£22). I actual didn't get this originally, I couldn't justify another flowery dress, but I was still thinking about it this morning, so I went back and bought it. How sad am I :-)
The Kate Moss t'shirt I liked
when it first appeared but thought was overpriced at £25 (now £15).
And skinny flare jeans in black proper denim look (as opposed to solid black), because you just can't turn down decent jeans at £15.

I also got this gold baubley thing because I have been looking for some long gold things to hang round my neck (I blame Alexa), and gothy necklace for winter which I love because it has little skull beads. I might change the cross though as I always feel a bit odd about wearing the symbols of a religion that is not mine. And I got two new shades of nail polish, but not from Topshop, and now have turquoise toenails, yay!

Topshop sale starts today in stores and sort of online (they've been putting things up gradually but the final category, dresses, is available today)! What I bought will be in the next post.

Jeans & top New Look, Bag H&M (I love this bag because it looks so 70's), sandals Topshop, earrings possibly Topshop but have had them for aaaaages so no idea really.

Topshop do Prada

ION, I remember a blogger talking about Topshop doing their version of the Prada fairy bag. I can't remember who it was but on the off-chance that they read this, or that someone else who reads this knows who it was, it is now available on the website:

Topshop painted suede bag £45.

Styled by a north easterly wind as usual

It's possible I was in a silly mood when I got dressed this morning!

Long sleeve top and skirt H&M, vest and necklace Topshop, belt and sandals (which don't really go but the lawn was muddy so I needed shoes) New Look, tights Celeste Stein.
