pretty pleats

Tuesday, 17 May 2011


cream pleat blouse: vintage
denim shorts: H&M
desert boots: Primark
rucksack: No. 8a at the Ace Hotel in
New York
statement necklace: Forever 21,
Times Square
green ring: Forever 21, Times Squa
re
black tights: Boots

I picked this blouse up a while back and wish I'd shown you a closer look: it has pleat detail down the button section (which you can mostly see in the second picture) and a really sweet collar design (which you can't see at all - must get better at this...) I think I bought it for about £2, which is just amazing when you consider some high street shops selling £40+ blouses with nowhere near as much oomph.

I'm also wearing some NYC buys, as I said I would. I love the necklace because it completely makes the outfit, and I've wanted a khaki rucksack for ages and this baby was only $30. To have picked it up in such a cool place makes it all the better too. This is the Ace Hotel where we breakfasted one morning:


My day has pretty much consisted of uni and the usual, as well as helping my brother revise for his English GCSE tomorrow and giving him a breather by watching Due Date. Zach Galifianakis is just LOLsome and I'm a wee bit excited for The Hangover 2.

  17. Hope you had a lovely time in NYC it looks awesome! Loving the backpack too, I'm so glad they're back in fashion now, as I have an old leather one which is now ok to start rocking out again hehe! Ah Due Date is hilarious, although I was slightly disappointed with the Hangover 2 which I saw yesterday x
