Wardrobe wake up: Day 5!


Today's WWU was a bit of a fail on two counts. Firstly, I had a mega lie-in and had hardly any time to think about my outfit before going out with my friend Jen. Secondly, after deciding on the below outfit, I opened the curtains and realised that summer had decided to change the habit of a lifetime and actually occur. So I ended up wearing my maxi with sandals in the end!

For all of ten minutes, here was the Autumnal roughed-up maxi look I was attempting:


(Jacket - from my dreams, dress - dorothy perkins, boots - charity shop, pendant - h&m)

This hottie was my inspiration. I found her on Style Sightings, where there are loads of themed street style posts (maxi's, polka dots, denim, etc). A truly amazing site!



So my outfit was a bit of a rush job, but I still really liked it. Will definitely be rocking the winter maxi to the, erm, max!

I want to go gothic tomorrow but am meeting an old friend for a possible fun outing to a farm, so don't want to frighten any children, or indeed animals! I already frighten animals with my desperation to be loved by them (they sense it and always walk away from me), so grim reaper chic will probably just add insult to injury!

I'm off to watch Big Brother now! GET JOHN JAMES OUT.



PS - Thanks to those that have stood up for me regarding some of the beef-esque comments on the Asos page. I am really touched. I don't deal with negativity very well and I don't want to waste my energy by retaliating. But I'm not gonna lie, seeing you guys retaliate is another matter. LOVING it! Ha! x

  1. This and yesterdays have been my favourite WWU's I think. I love that jacket so much! Great inspiration too, I'm definitely going to have to check it out. You deserved to win the competition, why must people insist on drama in their lives?

  4. I always think boots with a maxi skirt/dress is 48358 times better than sandals.

  5. You look fab! It's an awesome jacket.

    Also, ignore the negative comments, I know what you mean because I'm not good with negativity but it's impossible to please everyone- especially online voting competitions! It seems that either way, people gang up on the winner. Anyway looking forward to your fashion week stuff blogging on that swanky new net book! Too bad I'm not going to be around much this time for LFW but maybe I'll spot you around Somerset house if I'm lucky!

  6. All I have to say is those negative comments are utterly RIDONCULOUS!!! You have the best writing style I have ever encountered on the web! I have been working with journalists and copywriters since I left college and your writing stands out amongst so much I've read. You absolutely deserved to win and I'm so glad you did! Thanks for that site link - it's super. You look amazo and I'm so glad fashion has a fresh voice!

  9. I just replied to a lot of the negative feedback. I expect hatemail soon but who the fuck cares. People should not be so bitter and disrespectful. Some of the comments should have been removed by ASOS.

  12. I reallllly don't understand hate mail?! First, you definitely don't deserve it as your blog is ha-mazing and secondly, who can be bothered to hate on someone that they don't know?! Kind of pathetic.

    Love the maxi. x

  16. "jacket - from my dreams" cracked me up.
    congrats on the asos win (i haven't said that yet!)! i know it's hard, but ignore the haters - you won, nothing's gonna change that, and they clearly can't accept that their opinion won't change the result.

  19. I still think yesterdays outfit won. But this is fab also. Love that jacket. Love it!

    As for the beef, don't worry one bit about it, much too many sour grapes being munched by people who probably didn't have the balls or get up and go to enter! (much too much food going on there!)
