CANDYSTRIPES

Wednesday, July 01, 2015








I've had a lust for 70s style candystriped items ever since I stumbled upon a particularly patterned jacket on depop which had since been sold, safe to say I was heartbroken but Glamorous came to the rescue with an akin style co-ord, the shorts of which I first spotted on ASOS (for £20 may I add, now £13) but with a stroke of luck (and sale) I managed to bag the whole set for a fraction of its original price due to Glamorous's generous 50% off sale, YES. 

You may notice a slight change to my appearance, I got my nose pierced - FINALLY! I've wanted a nose piercing since I was 16, 2 years of waiting bound to the rules of sixth form and my parents' disagreements all changed last week and I absolutely LOVE IT! Everyone's been so complimentary and even my parents don't seem to care as such. If you're thinking of getting your nose pierced I say DO IT - those few seconds of pain are over in a flash and after that the pain is little, if any at all. I eventually will get the piercing changed to a ring once the healing stage is over but right now, I'm loving the stud life.
