Free London...

You know the thing I hate most about interviews? Having to buy new interview clothes when the biggest reason you need a job is to get money. I have an interview Monday which would be fine if I could easily find smart, cheap clothing. I think I might have found a nice outfit in the end thanks to H&M but I did have to brave the Oxford Street Primark  for a belt. Just a belt!!! I couldn’t find one ANYWHERE!!! And I despise Primark. But it all made me think maybe if I’d have stuck to the Internet I would have saved myself all that hassle. In fact I would have just got this tea dress and some brown brogues and had done with it. But I didn’t I went to the shops, which brings me to my excitement of the day! Get yourselves to the Selfridges shoe galleries ASAP!

As well as wonderful window displays and thousands of shoes they have a photo booth where you can photograph yourself with a whole host of gorgeous shoes. For free! Me and my flatmate took full advantage of it and I will attempt to get the pictures on here tomorrow. No time now as I am off to see a band, for free!!!

I am pretty sure nobody warned me about the sheer boredom I would encounter as a student. Seriously. Without a job to gurantee a monthly boost to my bank account I am living in fear of spending all my loan and being left penniless and unable to buy magazines and pick and mix. You know, the important things. Thank heavens for the £3 wine in Tesco, but a girl cannot live on wine alone. Well she can but all i will achieve is weight gain and bad skin, oh and alcoholism! All I can do is hope the job fairy comes along soon and believe me when it does I will be relieving my boredom the retail way! Maybe a sequin dress would be just the ticket to brighten the dreary Autumn days? Or maybe hit up Brick Lane and score me some vintage goodies before consulting the Vintage Guide to London for some fun times?

I am also considering filling my days with baking or cooking, top of my wishlist is parkin my favourite Yorkshire autumn treat. But buying ingredients and then tins etc always seems so expensive. As Kanye said “Having moneys not everything, not having it is”.

Inbox Love...

Today I fell in love via E-mail not once but twice. You might too when you see the lovelies that popped into my inbox.
Every time Agent Provocateur send an email I know there's a massive possibility that theres going to be something inside to tempt me and today's email introduced me to Dasha and the classic Gangster in a lovely, new grey shade. Yes please.

This followed an email I recieved earlier from Nina and Lola in which I fell in love with this versatile MEGA scarf by Clarissa Labin.

 I have turned all Southern and soft it would appear and therefore I am freezing and its not even October so I think this would be perfect. Well it would if it didn't have a £235 price tag.

Sink your teeth into this...

Well the Christmas countdown has begun (3 months tomorrow!) but a whole 3 months of Christmas does get rather tedious, and besides its Halloween first which brings me to this post inspired by this little guy I have just spied at Fortnum and Mason.

Pretty cute for a vampire huh?

Looking for something to wear whilst eating him? Then check out Etsy's Halloween costume treasury.

This would be my top choice if I had money.

Or this if you fancied something a little spookier. Both from Romantic Threads.

Maybe you are staying in and want to be comfy but would still like to get into the spirit? Then I would recommend a Kigu, the black cat I feel is particularly suitable.

Christmas can wait, there is dressing up to be done!!!

Coral and Cobalt...

It just screams hot sun and cocktails to me and cheers me right up after all the other snoozeworthy collections.

Sorry for the lack of posts but I am now a student! Official. Enrolled and everything! Thats why I haven't been on the internet. No internet!!! I have it now though.
Due to my lack of internet I am super behind on looking at pictures of s/s11 but from what I am seeing so far its the same as last year so just keep hold of your leather/sheer/big knickers. Luckily I am living just off Brick Lane so I can get me plenty of vintage stuff until current designers decide to do something exciting.

I also have been told by uni that I am to pop alomg to the Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A, no biggie was going to anyway. Its on til the 26th so if you wanna see how the old school did glamour check it out quick sharp.

I also quite fancy the Diagheliv and the Golden Age of the Ballet Russes exhibition, with costume collaboraters including Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso it should be a nice little treat for the eyes.

Today I have been watching Casablanca and practicing my goodbye face. I almost cried.

 Love the drama of the trailer.

But thats enough Deb for anyone.

I am a mega magazine addict. Seriously I love a new magazine so much. At times piles of magazines have threatened to trap me in my room and/or crush me to death in my sleep. So imagine my delight when I found this place. Magma Books. Holy heck. I promise myself I will wait til after the move though so I don't have to carry them all to London!

P.S. I found it while looking for somewhere I could purchase The Chap for my boyfriend, it sounds like the perfect magazine for him but the site only has subscriptions and we can't find a single issue in Leeds. But then I found it here! Hooray for me being a super girlfriend!

Lady in red....

.....Its my birthday soon!!!! Unfortunatley I will be in London away from all my besties and boyfriend :( Fortunatley I am going to celebrate early. Woohoo!!! Of course birthdays mean going out, drinking, dancing and possibly falling over, so what better to fall over in than a new outfit? Hooray!
Haha wonky or cheesy? I can't do photos.
But how awesome eh? Early birthday present from aforementioned boyfriend, bought for me while we were at Vintage Threads in Manchester. I was having a bad shopping day until someone handed us a flyer for a vintage fair.
And of course I needed new shoes.

I'll get proper non-blurry, akward posed pictures on Saturday I'm sure.
Last year I fell down the stairs and had to hang my shoes on a coat hanger in the cloakroom, so wish me luck this year. Seriously it was painful, I still can't lean on my elbow!
