I'll briefly explain how this post came into being. Dogtooth is a popular at print at the moment, but in all honesty it's just not me. I'm not huge on the whole 'vintage' thing in general (although there are several exceptions!). So instead I've gone with a check print with a more modern feel. Check is probably my favourite print in the grand aray of prints.
I've fallen in love with the shirt. It's from MeeMee.com, if you haven't already checked it out, you must! They sell everything from shoes, (...we'll come onto that in a second) to dresses, to coats, at a range of prices - at the risk of sounding gimmicky, they have something for everyone.
Moving onto these incredible shoes... what can I say, I'm in love with these babies too (don't worry, the shirt doesn't mind). I can imagine similar shoes being sold in Topshop around the £100 mark, but these are brilliant for £40. I'm genuinely telling myself that I must stay away from the MeeMee website out of fear of spending every penny I have.
The jeans are in the River Island sale, which I've been quite impressed by (I may have ordered a couple of pieces...). The only downside, as there is to every sale, is that these are now only available in two sizes. Slightly cropped jeans like these usually end up being an almost normal length on me, which is quite handy!
I'm not usually one for white bags, but this little number from Barratts appealed to me. The price is also quite appealing, but this is another sale piece, so if you want it get in there quickly!
I like to check out the Primark AW12: See What's Landing in Store This Week page of Look.co.uk every now and then as a self confessed Primark obsessing-freak. I probably spend more time in Primark than uni these days. I blame third year. Anyhow, it's just a really useful resource to find out what's new. This coat looks so cosy and I love a bit of faux fur, so it seemed perfect to throw on over the shirt to keep warm at this time of year.
