The day I amputated my boy shoes


Hola!

I decided to dress a bit like a girl today, including some sweet little Topshop frilly flats. It's the first time I haven't worn boots or my lace-ups in ages! I even slapped on some lipgloss for maximum girliness. I ended up complaining most of the day at work about my gunky lips (getting knitwear fluff stuck to them was a particularly low point) but at least I made the effort. I don't like being a one trick pony at the best of times, let alone broadcasting my shoe-repeating ways online to you lot all the time!

I wore my lovely new dress from Max C. They sent me some goodies a few days ago, and I am really enjoying the new influx of girly dresses into my wardrobe. I have scored you guys a potential goodie or two as well, but more on that another day!

In other news, my hair is quite literally doing my head in. I'm tempted to chop it off completely, a la Jean Seberg. Or go back to my shaved side ways... Any suggestions would be appreciated. Am just sick of my straggly shapeless mop.

In other other news, I seem to have Sundays off for the forseeable future, which is just lovely! I need to spend mine catching up on uni work tomorrow, though. Now I'm a third year, I REFUSE to let my procrastination beat me to a sleepless pulp like it did last year. I was up all night for the first time in my life to get that magazine finished. And as lolzy as it all seems now, I really don't want to put myself through that again. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. That's my new mantra. Or is it more of a warning? Either way! Do you have any fun weekend plans? Do tell me so I can live vicariously through you!

From your boffin pal,



PS - Any fans of The Wire out there? Alex & I just borrowed the box sets from his mate and we are obsessed!

  3. That necklace is cute Gem!! I quite like your hair, but i bet shaved side would look hella cool, you could pull it off, I don't think I've seen a pic of you with it like that. My weekend has consisted so far of drinking sangria and spelling Paije's name wrong hahaha sorry again for that bird :P LOL. No wire, although the way you harp on I think I might have to check this bad boy out. Sweet mantra, just sticking too it with all the distractions. Good Luck girlie xxx

  8. You look wonderful, this girly look is great on you! The thing that gets me about lip gloss is getting my hair stuck in it! Ergh! You don't have to worry about that I guess (I love your hair, by the way!)

  9. Completely love your "fail to prepare, prepare to fail" mantra.
    That genuinely feels like the story of my life right now.
    I may actually write that down and stick it up in my room somewhere as daily inspiration!

    Also liking the girly look, but definitely a fan of the desert boots as well!

  11. Well, since you asked, I'm spending my weekend celebrating my dad's birthday and my own belatedly, where I just found out that I had my great-grandmother's nose! Yay!

    And you look really really really cute all girly and such. As for your hair, I'm curious: Did you ever wear it long? Maybe you could grow it out a bit into a Clara Bow-kinda look. Orrrrr... you could do a pixie cut.

    Or you could grow it out. Those are my suggestions.

  12. I adore the girly look on you! The dress is so pretty and the shoes and necklace are lovely too. About your hair... I actually think it looks great, but I understand how frustrating it can be to not be happy with your hair! I wish I had a suggestion for you but as I've always had long hair I'm a bit stumped :(

  14. I watched all the box sets of The ire back to back. There was a little hole in my life once it was complete. Although now I've got Californication... next up is Mad Men.

  19. its a beautiful dress, i like it, the color patterns and the way its be made is cool, combined with black tights, its perfect for casual and night time wearing

  20. It's a cute dress, just goes to show how shoes can change the look of an outfit.
    I love lip gloss but have spent too many hours picking off cat hair (I just can't stop giving them kisses, so I only have myself to blame) but on windy days it is just pointless for those of us with long hair...

  21. My boyfriend and I were pretty sad when we finished The Wire boxset, it was so good!
    I think a shaved side would look pretty cool on your hair, I'm a big advocate of that look!

  22. Gem you look gorgeous - I adore the floral print of that dress xx

  23. You look lovely missus :) Super cute dress. I know what you mean about feeling 'girlie' haha. Its been worse since me and david moved in with each other. Jammies plus no makeup plus messy hair equals me looking like a boy 99% of the time!

    I like your hair, I miss my super short locks even though Im trying to grow it just now. I defo think you would suit it shaved in at the side - but as for the rest and your longer fringe etc keep that! you suit it muchly.

    and as for having sundays off, high five! today I am going into town to get some birthday pressies for folk, nothing exciting at all :(

    have a great sunday, lady! x

  24. you look lovely :)
    OMG the wire is AMAZING xx

  25. I think your hair looks lovely. But i think shaved sides are so on trend at the moment. if i counted the amount of people who have that at my college i would go on for ever! go for it :)

  26. that dress was made for you...beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gem :) Love the outfit, as for the hair, I much preferred it when it was swept across from the other side! Shaved would look good too though :) xx

  28. Oh man I love that necklace! Want one now...

    ReplyDelete
  29. that's okay, it was all your idea :) i'm really jealous of girls who can pull of short hair, cause i really can't! you should experiment with curls like dannii minogue did xx

    ReplyDelete
  30. You are adorable. What a great blog you have here.. You are a whiz at your nails.. I love doing nailart too! I've been experimenting and been quite successful.. definitely beat spending the cash @ the salon. :)

    Well, hope you're having a wonderful Sunday! I'll be back for a visit for sure.

    xx Love & Aloha

  34. Hmmm, hair... well, I reckon with short hair you should be more experimental since the effects don't look as if they last as long as with long hair (if that makes sense... and there is less to lose!) So I'd say DO THE CROP! Or buy lots of hats. I dunno. jazzy ♥

  35. Ooooh the Jean Seberg look will look gorgeous I'm sure. Because your hair is short already, it's not that crazy a change :) Loving the cute dress too!
