Welcome to Wonderland
It's occurred to me recently that I own a plethora of quirky and cute handbags, yet I never feature them on here! I am appropriately ashamed of myself and will rectify this oversight immediately! My little teapot bag is one of my favourites but it rarely gets taken to any tea parties because I can jam my phone into it and that's about it. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy carrying it around pretending to pour tea onto things (or in my mouth...one day I'll put bloopers on here). Sometimes a love of something and the joy it brings you trumps practicality.
Despite my disappointment with the company (as outlined here) I still love my Windsor Smith heels. To me, these are the shoe version of 'business in the front, party out the back'. Even the images of mullets that are conjured from that statement can't change my mind.
And the shirt? Well you can't beat basics from Topshop. The range of colours and styles is all a girl could ask for.
The skirt is a bit different for me though, I wouldn't normally choose any folky or tapestry prints but it caught my eye... I remember showing it to a few people along with other skirts I was looking at and everyone said "Oh that's not really you, get the others". Not one to be told no, I bought it anyway and have no regrets! I think it's good to have a couple things in your wardrobe that are different from your normal style. So long as you buy them in a cut or colour you're confident in you're onto a good thing in my opinion.
Lastly, the title of the post is also a little 'hello!' from my new home I moved to recently and these are the first photos I've taken here! Is it lame that I'm excited to see what backdrops I can find for photos?
