vintage jumper 'upcycled': House of Hauls
black bodycon skirt: H&M
wine-coloured bobble scarf: second-hand
spike bracelet: Dorothy Perkins
stone ring: Boots
black creeper ankle boots: Mr Shoes

I may just live in this jumper forever. I got my hands on this cosy creation at The Clothes Show from a stand called House of Hauls; a brand that reworks vintage pieces with studs, studs... and then some more studs. Denim shirts, camouflage jackets, printed shirts, Levi jeans and much more were on offer, but I opted for something to keep me toasty warm over the next few months. I love how the shoulder studs make it into something extra special too.

You continuously see me in my creeper chelsea boots because I adore them so much, so I also decided to buy a similarly amazing pair while on the Mr Shoes stand over the weekend.

The Clothes Show was chock full of amazing brands and I can't wait to show you another amazing buy. Did any of you go? Did you see me selling shoes like it was the only thing that mattered in the whole world ever?

  3. I think I would like the jumper even without the studs but it looks even better with. I've been to the clothes show for the last two years but couldn't afford this year. I always end up buying loads of makeup, I must have enough to las a life time now xxx

  4. Oh, you are just so adorable! I am slightly envious of the wintery weather of there because you guys all get to wear such cute sweaters :)
    It's been a while since I've visited you and your blog (life is crazy!) and I just thought I'd mention that your new layout is gorgeous. The header is lovely <3
