Dress: ASOS; body chain: Diva @ Miss Selfridge; bag: Aldo; boots: ASOS.
This week's nice weather (twenty-odd degrees in March? Must be the end of the world) has meant that I've dug out the obligatory sundress, although I'm still not ready to lose the tights just yet. I obviously had to make it that bit more interesting by pairing it with the neon bag and studded body chain, plus my now mandatory purple lipstick. I wore this earlier in the week for my weekly trip to the hospital followed by a wander into town in which I remembered why it is that I very rarely go shopping in Halifax for anything other than toiletries or maybe a pasty. The inability of River Island/New Look/Topshop to stock anything other than predictable jersey basics and anything over a size 10 is kind of offensive. I reckon from now on I'll stick to buying my clothes online and during an occasional trip into Leeds/Manchester. If I'm honest having lived literally 2 minutes from the centre of Newcastle for the year I was at university has left me feeling pretty disappointed with my local town/city centres. The fact that I was within walking distance of well-stocked high street stores, numerous department stores and everything in between has left me pretty spoiled. As much as living in Newcastle had its drawbacks, I would say that the shopping there was pretty decent and I really do miss it from time to time.
On another, less ranty note, in case you missed my last post in which I in no way beg for a PS3, it is my 20th birthday in two days and it only really dawned on me the other day that this means I will officially no longer be a teenager! I know some people say your teenage years should be the best of your life, and it does make me sad to think that I will no longer be able to use the "I'm a teenager" excuse, but I really won't miss it. At all. Anyone else feel the same about turning 20, or is it just me?
