Hat: Accessorise Dress: Vintage/eBay Shoes: Primark

Where did January go?! I woke up this morning; looked at the time and realised it was the 2nd! Where did the 1st of February go?! I have so much to do and so little time ughh. I haven’t blogged many outfits recently mainly because of the crappy weather…and I’m snowed under with university work. Today’s weather is lush, love the winter sun! Thought I’d make the most of it and venture out for some blogging pics.

I have got a new obsession – eBay! Fortunately for me, clothes don’t sell for much on eBay so it’s an ideal place to grab a bargain. I managed to pick this vintage smock dress up for £3! Obviously buying clothing on eBay is a bit risky because of sizing but lucky smock dresses are pretty easy to pull off either way. I was quite surprised when this dress arrived as it’s that awkward length between top and dress…so you can’t wear it with jeans or tights on its own! (Underneath I’ve popped on a black bodycon skirt). I paired this dress with my Accessorise fedora hat I grabbed in the Boxing Day sales – I like how the purple picks out the shades of pink and purple from the dress.

I think I’ll have to be careful when wearing this dress – avoid a Marilyn Monroe moment!

Last night I went to a Great Gatsby house party for a friend’s birthday celebrations (I might blog my outfit, but check out my Instagram for a picture otherwise). To pull off the 1920’s look I used my Babyliss wand to create the ‘glamorous curls’. I haven’t curled my hair in ages let along use my wand! I forgot how long it takes and I have really thin hair…nevertheless I do love this hairstyle. It definitely helps my hair look thicker and have more volume, and maybe makes it look blonder?! I dunno, maybe that’s just the winter sun. My 1920/ Gatsby outfit featured another one of my eBay bargains. I (somehow?!) bought a brand new (with tags!) Miss Selfridge dress with a drop hem waist, really flattering and different to what I’d usually choose. I didn’t fancy spending much on accessorises as realistically I’d just loose them! So I bought a sequinned head band from Primark which is really gorgeous and I’m planning to wear it again throughout the festival season.

Are you fan of eBay?!
