M&S dress, House of Holland for Pretty Polly tights, Topshop scarf, Urban Outfitters necklace
So, this is what I wore on Friday to the Clothes Show. Unfortunately I'm a silly muppet and completely forgot to get Kathy to take a picture of my new charity shop dress on Thursday, so you shall have to see that another day. Probably good because it means the post will be shorter!
If any of you have ever had a nosey at my Looklet page (find a link at the top of the page in the sidebar) you will notice somewhat of a recurring theme. In a lot of my looks I use Tatty Devine jewellery. I can't help it, I have somewhat of an addiction. However, in reality, I don't actually own any Tatty Devine, despite knowing about the brand for several years. The thing is, the pieces are quite expensive, and I've just never got around to ordering anything off their website. So, when I found out they were exhibiting at the Clothes Show I was naturally very excited, and marked it as one of the stands where I would spend the very little money I was planning on taking with me. I wanted to get a couple of pieces from them and was very pleased to see that they had 20% off on the 'Best Of' collection, which contained both the pieces I wanted to buy. Top of the list was a pair of these bad boys-
ARE THESE NOT THE FUCKING COOLEST THINGS YOU'VE EVER SEEN??!! I have wanted these for SUCH a long time. I'd even considered trying to make my own with some cheap glasses but thought it wouldn't be the same. Although thinking about it now, I could do it if I took the arms off.... hhhmmm, things to consider. Because, as it turned out I didn't get exactly what I wanted. They hadn't got a pair out on display so I asked the very nice lady if they'd got a pair buried under the table. When I got back she gave them to me but alas, they were the smaller ones! But she'd attached the chain for me since they didn't have them in an assembled form, and I didn't have the heart to tell her I wanted the bigger ones. And she gave them to me with an extra reduction since they were on a silver chain rather than the usual black. So I have the smaller pair, which are not quite so awesome but are still pretty cool. I may treat myself to the bigguns at some point when I've got some money, maybe my birthday in a couple of months.
So, here is the necklace in action. It's teemed with a Topshop tee shirt I've had for a while but don't wear very often because it's a bit of a funny length, but I just plonked it on anyway. I might cut it at some point. I had to wear it because it was just too good a combination-

And I've just remembered I haven't mentioned the other Tatty Devine necklace I bought... another post Hattie, another post.
