Guess Who's Back

You may already be familiar with this hella sick vintage leather jacket, and if you are, that means you've been around these ends for a decent while, in which case, congrats! (& thank you, so..so much) If you're not familiar with it, then I'd probably advise not scrolling back through the dawn of time to find it... I was a lot more awkward and everything had a brown background. Well, I warned ya.
I used to wear a lot of vintage stuff.. one of pieces and unusual finds.. I had a weird sense of style that no-one seemed to be able to put their finger on (I asked.. many people) and I liked it.Then I started working at Topshop.
Soon my wardrobe was bursting at the seams (and falling off the wall) with Topshop items. It was sick, don't get me wrong, and I still love a good Toppers purchase but, having a little time away from it, has really allowed me to fall back in love with some of my original wardrobe.. Lets call it 'the pre-toppers selection' 
I used to wear shorts all through the year, when it was snowing, raining, hailing or boiling and I'd kinda forgotten how much a trusty pair of fleece lined tights can open up a whole new wardrobe to you.
As for the tee.. I don't know if it's just me but I think a little part of me dies if I ever buy a band tee from a high street store.. but in my defence, I was in Mexico at the time, the fit was great and it looked good with a tan.. sold.
It's still one of my favourite tee's a year on and I can't wait to whack it out at all oportunities.

(speaking of guns, I have been working on my arms so come summer, they'll look less like a chubby cocktail sausage.. one can dream at least I guess)

  2. I love your look, big fan of the vintage rock vibe!

    P.s. How do you get your hair so shiny?! And if you dye it I would love to know which colour you use, I am naturally mousy and always searching for a nice rich brown!x

  3. That jacket is an absolute delight!
    I used to have an unusual sense of style also :D It's great finding some of the hidden gems that you used to wear. That's probably why I hoard everything!

  9. I love that jacket! I so need to get back into my vintage items. They are so much more unique. Which in this case is a shame, as I'd love to get my hands on one of those jackets.

  11. LOVE this outfit. I love shorts all year round, and these are so nice. Love the jacket as well, a great little vintage find. I own one shirt that is vintage and I love it, it has musical instruments on it! Im very tempted to scroll back through your posts now!
