Some recent buys

Well I've really been letting the side down haven't I! Not blogging for a week and a half! First of all my boyfriend's cat died, then he broke his hand, and also I've just started a new work placement, and all these things have been keeping me rather busy! I've totally lost track of time at the moment, and haven't been giving myself time to do everything I need to. It's so easy to fall into the trap of sitting around watching telly or staring at Facebook or buying stuff on ebay isn't it?
So for my first post in a week and a half, here are a couple of things I've been buying:


(Both pictures from the original listings on ebay)
First up we have an amazing vintage nautical dress. There have been a few of this same dress floating around on ebay and I've been trying to get hold of it for months. Got this one for a tenner and I am so pleased with it. The skirt is a little longer than expected which means wearing heels with it. So I'm waiting for the weather to be less damp before I wear it!
Secondly, a cute cute vintage 80s jumper. I love love love batwing knitwear, with skinny jeans and a big belt, so deliciously 80s! I haven't worn either of these yet but when I do there will be pictures, promise!
I've also got some amazing woolly tights from H&M which are so warm. Because of them, I've been able to wear all my cute dresses from the summer and still be warm!

I'm pretty excited about that dress. I hope you post some photos.

I'm sorry about the cat, that's horrible. I hope your boyfriend is doing okay on that score. The broken hand sounds awful! What a bad combination.

:(

How's your new job going?
